It’s Spring! That means it’s time for Spring cleaning and most importantly, Spring Maintenance. At Housetop Roofing and Home Improvement contractors in Raleigh, NC, we hope you have roof maintenance on your spring checklist. Chances are, you have seen all of the pollen and you may already have a build-up of debris on your roof. To make sure that your roof is ready for the months ahead, here are 3 ways to make sure your roof is under control.
1. Look at Your Roof
It seems simple, but the best way to determine if your roof is holding up is to physically get up there and take a look. Do a walk through and look for loose shingles, missing shingles, or generally damaged shingles. You should also look to see if you have any plants or biological matter growing on your roof. If something looks like it’s out of order and beyond your capabilities, you should contact a professional.
2. Check for Pesky Invaders
You don’t want anything in your home that’s unaccounted for, or you could have an invasion on your hands. Check the undersides of the eaves on your home. This is where a lot of bugs like to build their hives or nests. The nest should typically be okay depending on the homeowner, but you definitely want to be careful about the hives, especially if you have small children. Stinging insects love building on the underside of eaves so be sure to be extra cautious when checking these areas, so be sure to take the necessary precautions before doing so.
3. Check the Gutters
During the Spring, there is actually a lot of build-up in your gutters. This is the time of the year when the seeds that settle in the gutters could take root and start growing, so be sure to nip it in the bud. After you clean out your gutters, run some water through to make sure it’s flowing nicely. Working gutters are going to be very important for those upcoming harsh Summer rainstorms.
