When was the last time your roof was inspected?
Winter can take a toll on your home; ice and snow are heavy, and can cause serious lasting damage. If you make roof maintenance part of your spring cleaning, you can catch winter damage before it’s too late.
Common Damage from Winter Weathe
There are many things that can cause damage to your roof between winter and spring. Here is a list of common issues to look for:
- Loose or missing shingles
- Water damage or expanding dark patches
- Cracks in your siding or shingles
- Debris build up on your roof or in your gutters
The Risk of Untreated Water Damage
Water damage can wreak havoc on your home. If untreated, water can lead to mold growth, material deterioration, wood rotting, and can introduce pests like carpenter ants, termites, and cockroaches. You can save a lot of money repairing a roof as opposed to replacing it. The safest bet is to fix the damage as soon as you find it.
