Spring is right around the corner and soon you won’t have to worry about ice dams and snow buildup on your roof. But now it’s time to start inspecting your home for winter damage.
Winter weather can make a big impact on your roof and gutters. Here’s are three tips you can use to prepare your home for spring:
- Get to cleaning. Spring cleaning isn’t just about vacuuming your living room carpet and opening the windows. It’s also about clearing foreign objects out of your gutters. If you noticed icicles have been hanging from your roof this winter season, odds are you’ve got debris you need to clean. Unclog your gutters and ventilation stacks to prevent water damage and excess moisture buildup once spring comes a-calling.
- Inspect your roof and gutters for damage. It might help to call a professional to inspect your roof and gutters for any problems that could be hard to spot. But you might be able to see the damage for yourself if you stand back to look at your house from the sidewalk. Missing or buckling shingles need to be replaced. Gutters that are disconnected from your roof need to be replaced, too. The last thing you want this spring is water damage and a rotten attic. Speaking of your attic, you might be able to see if you have roof damage just by going upstairs. Check to see if there are any holes or beams of light coming in.
- Repair any damage or install a new roof. It’s important to repair roofing damage as soon as the weather allows you to prevent causing more damage to your home. If your roof still has a way to go before it needs to be replaced, contact your Colorado Springs roofing services to make the necessary repairs you need. But if your roof is on the older side and has been causing issues for months, now might be the best time to replace it what with warmer weather on the way.
