Spring is just right around the corner! If you are ready to say goodbye to the snow and bitter cold, Divine Roofing, Inc. is happy to help. With springtime on the horizon (and summer not that much farther behind!), we encourage you to begin preparing your roof for the warmer months ahead. Even if you think that your roof is in good shape and you don’t believe you will run into any problems, it is always a good rule of thumb to make sure that your roof is tip-top.
Below, here are some of our suggestions to check the overall health of your roof. Read on to learn more!
Checklist for Preparing Your Roof for Spring Time
1.Inspect the roof thoroughly.
Your safety always comes first when it comes to investigating any potential problems with your roof. Look for odds and ends, such as loose or damaged shingles. Without repairing or replacing these, your roof can be prone to leaks and other similar issues once the ice begins melting.
As Colorado Springs roofers, we cannot stress enough the importance of looking after your gutters. A clogged gutter, for example, can seem like a minor issue at first but can have the potential to cause many headaches for homeowners. Winter weather can clog up the gutters with ice, that can be damaging to the gutters as well as the roof. Clogged gutters can also overflow come spring time when the ice begins thawing. Your best bet is to ask your roofing contractor about how best to clear these gutters away, and protect your roof from further wear and tear.
3.Keep the roof ventilated.
As temperatures rise in spring, warm air can collect in the rooms just below your roof, such as the attic. Believe it or not, this has the potential to damage to the underside of your roof. We understand that it can be difficult to discern how much ventilation you will require for your home or space, while also keeping in line with the building codes and other regulations. You can always contact Divine Roofing, Inc. to inspect your roof thoroughly and provide you with a more accurate estimate.
