Tough winters can be harmful to a roofing system. Because of that, it is important to take the necessary maintenance steps in spring. Mostly any kind of roof can benefit from a spring inspection by a qualified Shell Knob MO roofing company.
First of all, you can check the state of your gutters and clean them if necessary. Spring is usually the season of rains, so you need to make sure your roof is well prepared and can withstand sometimes harsh weather.
The state of your shingles can also indicate that your roof may need special attention. Thus, shingles may be curling, bent or loose. In case your roof’s shingles are damaged, you need to replace them as soon as possible. Depending on your roof’s age, you may also consider replacing it altogether.
Another place where you should look is the flashing. The role of a flashing is to connect several roofing elements, such as skylights and windows. In case your flashing has rusty spots, you need to replace it immediately, in order to prevent any further damages to your roof.
Spring is the right time to check for any damage caused by ice dams or heavy snow, which can seriously affect the state of your ceiling or insulation layers.
