Do you know for sure that your roof is ready for spring weather? Roofing preparation and maintenance may be year-round, but that only means that you have to be diligent and attentive for twelve months of the year!
Make Sure You’re Ready for Spring Weather
It’s a month into spring, so your roof may have already had to stand against the variable temperatures and weather that these months bring. “Heavy rain and high winds” are entirely possible, among other, equally-concerning conditions, and these will have an impact especially on older roofs. Is yours up to the challenge?
If your roof is ready for spring weather, then you won’t see shingles that are curling or “bubbling.” Otherwise, a strong gust would be able to knock them loose and cause problems for you down the road. Similarly, “if you look in your gutters or at the bottom of your downspouts and notice a lot of shingle granule loss, this means the shingles are nearing the end of their life span.” Taking a look over your shingles can be very telling as to how prepared your home is for the changing seasons.
Recently-strong weather may have already done some damage to your roof that you don’t know about. If some shingles are already missing, then you should call for a repair or replacement right away to avoid damage to the underlying structure or leaks that get inside the house. If the spring comes with periods of wind and rain, the wind-driven rain can find a way through more easily than ever if there are missing shingles to provide them access.
Spring weather is something to be excited about, not something to dread. Just make sure that you have been keeping up with your roofing maintenance so that your roof is ready for springtime.
