The Ultimate Spring Roofing Guide

It is important to inspect your roof in the spring. The winter can be very harsh on your roof, especially if there was heavy snowfall and ice. Inspecting your roof can help you to see if there is any damage that needs repairing.

Here is the ultimate spring roofing guide to help you with your roof. 

Do a Walk-Around Roof Inspection

Check your roof as you walk around your home. You may notice that shingles are curled, damaged or missing. This could mean you are in need of roof repairs. Additionally, if you find something and are unsure of what it is, it is best to consult with a professional. 

Check The Attic 

After the snow melts, it is important to check your attic. Your attic can indicate if there have been any roof leaks throughout the winter. For example, if you have poor attic ventilation, your utility bills might have gone up substantially. It is best to check your attic for large water stains, mild odours, a sagging roof and discolouration. If you find any of these in your attic, then you should definitely call a professional to check it out. 

Check The Gutters 

During the winter, your gutters may have gotten clogged with dirt and debris. Cleaning out your gutters will get your home ready for the spring and ensure everything is working efficiently. 

Look for Ice Dam Damage 

If you had any ice dams throughout the winter, you may be able to spot the signs of it in spring. Ice dams can lift and damage shingles around the edge of your ceiling. They can also damage your eavestroughs and cause water to leak into your attic.
