The winter months can be very challenging for your roof, as the cold temperatures and harsh weather can cause significant damage. From high winds and heavy rain to snow and ice, your roof goes through a lot, so as the weather starts improving and warmer temperatures arrive, it is the perfect time to examine your roof and make sure it is ready for spring.
- Inspect your shingles
The first thing you should do is examine your entire roof, carrying out a visual inspection will help you to identify any areas that might have been damaged through the winter months. You should also climb up on the roof and closely inspect your shingles, identifying any that might have become loose, removed, or cracked.
- Clear any trees
Your roof should not be in close proximity to any tree branches, so as spring begins, use the better weather to help you to trim any trees or bushes that have grown to cover your roof and could cause damage should they break off.
- Clear your gutters
A blocked gutter can lead to rainwater backing up and causing serious damage to your roof and foundations. Make sure your gutters are completely clear of any debris that has built up over the winter months, ensuring any springtime rain can flow freely through your systems.
