Spring is right around the corner, and with that comes the time for spring cleaning. When spring cleaning commences, it is also a good idea to make sure things like the HVAC system of a home gets maintained, and the roof should get inspected. Spring is a great time for seeing any potential problems with a roof, and getting those issues addressed in the springtime is far easier than waiting till those hot summer months.
Warmer Weather Improves Visibility
Spring is the most popular time for a roof inspection because the weather starts to warm up. Here at Twin River Roofing, we can see roofs better during the warmer months. This is due to the fact that the sun can dry all the winter moisture up. It is easier to conduct a full inspection of the roof, including the shingles, gutters, and determining whether or not there are any soft spots on the roof.
Inspecting for Damage
The winter months can be very harsh on a roof. Heavy snowfall events, ice, and more can all cause damage. Falling leaves can cause a moisture problem for the roof. If there are loose shingles, fallen leaves can trap moisture inside, which may lead to a roofing failure. During the spring, the leaves can easily be removed, and there are no worries about the leaves falling again. Snow and ice will not be an issue during this time, so that the roof can easily be repaired if needed.
Once a roof is inspected and repairs are needed, it is a good idea to do this in the spring. When summer gets here, the chance for heavy rain and severe weather increases. This can cause delays in getting a roof repaired. Doing these repairs will also help the homeowner avoid any costly repairs during the summer months when they might go on vacation.
With the winter months winding down, it is important to go ahead and schedule a roof inspection appointment. The winter may have done some damage to your roof. Call us here at Twin Rivers Roofing today for a roof inspection that will help to ensure that your roof is in good shape without any problems.
