5 Tips to Maintain Your Roof in Spring

By Stacy Mellete

Spring has arrived, and as a responsible homeowner, you should keep in mind that your roof will need maintenance around this time. Now that the weather is in your favor, Affordable Roofing Systems shares five helpful maintenance tips to keep any need for roof repairs in Largo Florida to a minimum.

Check for Debris

Whether it was granules of shingles from overhead or pine needles from the trees nearby, it’s important to check for any lingering debris. Inspect your gutters and make sure to clear out any. If you’re not careful, you’ll risk water or weight damage to the side of your house.

Inspect Flashings

Flashings are metal sheets designed to keep any moisture from entering your house, be it from the chimney or the vents. Always make sure they are in peak condition. Look for any damage, bending or cracks. Since you just survived winter, they might need storm damage restoration Largo before the heat comes in.

Scan for Sagging Areas

Your roof might not show any damage in terms of material, but it can be weakened from the inside. A sagging area means there is a part of the roof that dips lower than the rest. If you find this, call your local roofing contractor immediately since this is a sign of serious structural damage and you may need to get some repairs done.

Look at the Shingles

Your shingles cover your roof and act as the primary defense against the elements. Always observe the shingles to see if any have curling edges, cracks or have gone missing. If you find any, you might have to call professional hail damage repair in Largo Florida like us. Make sure you keep your feet on the ground since stepping on the roof is risky without the proper training and equipment.

Watch for Moss

Any plant life growing in between your shingles or on the roof, whether it’s moss or mold, is a bad sign. It means the water hasn’t fully run off from your roof and has gotten stuck. Growth could spell structural damage to your roof so make sure you note them as soon as it’s spotted.
