Snow and ice can damage even the sturdiest roof, so an inspection and some repairs may be necessary this Spring.
Once the roof has been exposed to winter, hailstorms, and blizzards, it is essential to look it over for seasonal damages. Make a mental note of any missing or damaged shingles. Look at your attic for holes and/or daylight peering through holes. Ripped or missing flashing, ventilation stacks, and rotten/loose caulking are all “issues.” You also want to make sure mold isn’t growing anywhere.
It’s a good idea to call a Roofing Contractor (Arko can be reached at 763-434-2756) before the onset of summer and have them walk the roof looking for damages or areas of potential damages. It is essential that you fix these problems ASAP!
It’s important to clean your roof and gutters, getting rid of debris such as twigs or branches.
During the winter months, moisture forms in the cracks between bricks and concrete… and once this moisture expands, in order to facilitate expansion, bricks dislodge from their present locations and can fall on people below!
Taking care of your gutters and roof with some basic Spring maintenance can help extend their lifespans, saving you money in the long run. If you haven’t had your roof inspected in a while, now’s a good time to call Arko at 763-434-2756.
