5 Spring Roof Maintenance Mistakes to Avoid

Roof maintenance is a must in spring. Are you sure you are doing the right thing? Here are the five spring roofing maintenance mistakes to avoid.

  1. Ignoring loose debris – Loose twigs and branches can get stuck in between shingles and might trap more debris and damage your roofing. If you can’t do the cleaning on your own, ask your trusted roofer to clear your roof from debris this spring.

  1. Neglecting the gutters – Accumulated debris can clog your gutters, which can lead to more serious damage to your roof and other parts of the house. Always have your gutters cleaned. 

  1. Letting moss grow on your roof – Moss will contribute to the deterioration of your shingles. Remove it using moss remover and not a pressure washer.

  1. Doing temporary fixes – If you discover a leak or damage on your roofing, don’t rely on temporary fixes. Hire a trusted roofing company to do the roof repair. They will thoroughly inspect your roof to determine the issues. They might need to secure loose flashing or nails, reseal vents, recaulk the flashing around the chimney and fix any leaks.  

  1. Forgetting the overhang branches – Overhanging branches give squirrels and other rodents access to your roof. Plus, they will add a lot of debris on your roof. Trimming the trees will prevent this from happening. It is best to seek professional help to avoid doing more damage to your roof and other areas in your home.
