Spring is finally upon us in Oregon. After a long and dreary winter, many of us are happy to welcome the extra sun, warmer temperatures, and added entertainment options that come with springtime. Though this season is overall a joyous one, several housekeeping chores often need to occur this time of year. One such task is inspecting your roof for any damage that the winter snow and ice may have caused. Doing spring maintenance on your roof can ensure that your roof lasts for years to come and that it is ready to take on summer thunderstorms and falling leaves when the time comes.
Check for Leaks
One of the most common consequences of winter temperatures and precipitation is leaking in your roof. As the water melts and freezes, it expands and contracts. As this happens, cracks can form under the pressure of the changing water forms. If you notice any sort of leaking in your roof, it’s important that you call a professional roofer right away. If you haven’t had a roof inspection in a while, spring is a wonderful time of year to ensure that your roof is free of cracks and leaks.
Assess Damaged Shingles
One or two damaged shingles may not seem like a big deal, but it really leaves your roof vulnerable to leaks. Shingles often overlap as well, so one faulty shingle can easily compromise the others around it. If you notice that a shingle is out of place in any way, contact a professional.
