Spring Roof Clean-Up Tips
It is like a lever to spring cleaning before and the first thing that comes to mind is the idea of cleaning out a basement or garage. Spring cleaning inside your house can be important but there’s also some spring cleaning that you can do outside your home that will improve the lifespan of your roof. Here are some of the best options that you can take on to preserve the lifespan of your roof with some spring cleaning!
Trim Your Trees
If you have overhanging branches this can often lead to the chance that your shingles could wear poorly. Heavy tree branches could actually scrape off your tree branches under strong winds. Large branches will continue to break off and this will cause ongoing damage in the form of impact damage and potentially rot with your roof. In order to prevent this situation it’s important to trim your trees or hire a professional as needed to do so.
Clean Off Your Roof
Some fallen leaves or debris on your roof may not seem like it causes them any issues but when these leads have a chance to stay on your roof this can often lead to the chance that you will be facing problems with mold, rot and sometimes warping for your roofing materials.
Check For The Signs Of Discoloration
Checking for signs of discoloration can give you an early indication of damage or that it could be time for you to replace items on your roof. Scrubbing any of the discoloured areas can help to prevent mold growth and it can help you recognize areas where your roof could be falling into disrepair.
Do A Regular Inspection For Damage
Clean out your gutters and make sure that they can be inspected and then take a look at your chimney, shingles and other areas to check for the signs of loose bricks and other items that could be repaired. These areas across your roof can sometimes lead to ongoing problems as your roof ages. A quick and thorough inspection of your roof can identify these issues and prevent them from becoming worse.
