Springtime is always associated with cleaning and maintenance activities. With so many things on your springtime list, you might overlook one of the most important things in your house–your roof. Avoid these roof maintenance mistakes this spring:
Doing Temporary Fixes
If your home really needs a roof repair, don’t settle for temporary fixes. You think you are buying time, but in reality, you may spend more money in the long run. Deal with the problem right away. Even if you have to spend more money upfront, you will avoid more damage that requires more expensive fixes.
Have professionals inspect your roof regularly. This will help identify small roof issues before they lead to bigger ones.
If there are any problems discovered during the inspections, have them fixed right away. This will help prolong the life of your roof and save you from having to do a residential roof replacement.
Forgetting to Clean the Gutter
Clogged gutters and drains can lead to roof damage when rains come. Always clean your gutter during spring. Get rid of accumulated leaves and branches by scooping them out with your hands or trowel. Then, rinse the gutters using the garden hose. While doing this, you might as well check for leaks. After cleaning, look for loose nails and fix them accordingly. If you notice that some parts of your gutter are sagging, have them fixed immediately.
