Spring brings beautiful flowers, warm weather and potential problems with your roof. That last one is always a surprise, but this is the time of year when roofing issues become visible. In fact, there are three main reasons why you should get your roof inspected during springtime.
- Warmer Weather
One of the biggest reasons for inspecting your roof in spring is the warmer weather. Now that the winter weather is becoming less frequent, the sun plays a role in drying everything out. This makes it easy and safe to conduct a thorough inspection of all aspects of your roof, including shingles and gutters. While you could attempt this yourself, a roofing expert knows exactly what to look for and can spot any problems more accurately.
- Spot Damage
Now that the sun is shining, it’s easy to spot any damage that occurred during winter. A professional contractor can clear away any leaves or debris from the roof and gutters as part of general maintenance. Then, they can inspect the roof for water damage, cracks, missing or loose shingles and other signs of wear and tear that may have happened during winter. That way, you can fix the issues before they become worse.
- Schedule Repairs
Spring is the ideal time to schedule any maintenance or repairs before the weather changes again. If you do need to replace shingles or rotted wood, you can plan these repairs before summer, so any damage won’t affect your summer plans or energy bills. A professional contractor can help you figure out the necessary repairs and set up a timeline for fixing the issues.
