How to Get Your Roof Ready for Spring

Now that spring is finally here, you should take some time to look over your roof to make sure it is ready for the spring and summer. After all, the winter can really wreak havoc on your roofing, so you want to be sure there are no problems with your roofing before the spring and summer storms start to hit. Here are a few things you should look for. And when you need roofing repair or replacement, let us know and we can help. After all, we are roofing experts in Woodbury and the surrounding areas!

First, take a slow walk around your home and keep an eye on the ground. Do you see any shingles or parts of shingles sitting on your lawn? Or do you see any other pieces of your roof on your lawn? If so, you will need to call us as soon as possible for roofing repair.

Then, if you feel comfortable and if it is safe to do so, get on a ladder and climb up to your roof. There is no need to get on your roof, but you should take a look at it from the ladder. Do you see shingles that are missing, curling or deteriorating? If so, that is yet another sign that roofing repair will be in your near future. Damaged or missing shingles definitely need to be replaced or repaired, and curling or bubbling shingles are also a sign that your roof is in need of some TLC.

You should also take a look at your gutters. Do you see any shingle pieces or shingle granules in the gutters or in the downspouts? If you see shingle granule loss, this means your roofing shingles are nearing the end of their lives and they should be replaced soon.

A roofing inspection should also look at the sealant, flashing and other parts of your roof system. If anything is in a state of disrepair, it will need to be fixed before too long. Even just a few missing or damaged shingles can result in roof leaks and other related damage. Getting your roofing fixed now before the problem becomes worse could save you time, money and hassle in the long run.

Of course, for a more detailed and thorough roofing inspection, give us a call. We can come out and take a look to make sure your roof is in good shape.
