It’s that time of year to start thinking about spring cleaning. While most people focus on getting the inside spruced up, the outside of the house needs some attention as well. The weather could have had an impact on the roof, so it’s important to have it inspected.
A professional roofing company is the best for making sure your roof is in tip-top condition. They are meticulous and provide the highest standard of service for our customers. Some of the things roofers look for when doing spring roofing inspections include the following.
Check for Loose Shingles
Having loose singles means that your home is not protected from moisture. Rain can get into the house and cause untold damage. A professional can assess the problem and devise the best solution for your home and roof, including replacing any damaged or loose shingles.
Check for Mold and Mildew
Mold or mildew in your home can cause numerous problems, including to your health. This is especially true here in Lilburn, where we have humidity and lots of rain. Mold and mildew often grow when moisture or rain water is allowed to seep into your home through the roof. A roofing professional can help find the cause of the problem and fix it.
Ensure That Trees and Leaves Are Trimmed
The biggest issue with having trees too close to your home is that branches can break off and fall onto the roof, causing damage to the structure or to the shingles. Other issues with having trees close to the house means that they create shady or damp spots, which leads to the growth of mold and mildew. Roofers can help you pinpoint these problem areas and take care of them before they become detrimental.
Clean Out Gutters
Gutters play a huge role in how water flows from your roof. If they are loaded with leaves and debris, water could back up and leak into your home, or the water can drain down and cause harm to the foundation. Cleaning your gutters is the simplest fix to many roofing problems and should be done on a routine basis.
