Spring Cleaning The Roof Checklist

Spring is the perfect season to de-clutter your property from the basement to the garage. Sure, it is a cleaning season even for your landscaping and living areas. But here, we shall talk about roof clean-up. Your roof deserves your attention like any other part of your home. For this matter, we have prepared for you a clean-up checklist for your roof during the spring season. Basically, there are 4 steps that should guide you.

  • Check for flashing and loose shingles

You can inspect the exterior parts of your roof from the ground without necessarily climbing up, which is very dangerous. Look for gaps and looseness in the shingles and check if the flashing is tearing or buckling from the roof.

  • Inspect the attic

Look for signs of water damage in the attic and the ceiling. Call a professional immediately if you detect mildew or staining. This will help you escape a lot of problems in the near future.

  • Clean the gutters

Even if you cleaned up the gutters during the fall, the long winter might have brought more debris which needs to be flushed out. Be careful if you have to use a ladder to do the job. Otherwise, you should hire a professional to clear the gutter path. Don’t forget to examine the signs of wear in the gutters e.g. corrosion and rust.

  • Trim the branches near the roof

Hanging branches can cause a lot of problems to your roofs. Don’t wait for an accident. Trimming the branches also reduces the accumulation of leaves on the gutters.

Spring follows winter so it is more likely that your roofs were damaged by heavy snow, mold, and other unpleasant winter elements. Your clean-up will be much easier if you detect problems as soon as you can. That way, your repairs will be minimal.
