There are so many wonderful things that come along with the spring and summer months. More daylight, warmer weather, and spring cleaning are just a few. While it may be easy to remember to spring clean around the inside of your house and your lawn outside, there is one part of the house that is sometimes forgotten – the roof. Spring and summer can be harsh on a roof, from the rainy days to the hot summer heat. Here are a few easy ways to prep your roof for the summer season.
1. Examine your shingles. Schedule a professional to come out and take a look at your shingles to make sure that they are still in great shape and do not need to be replaced. Last thing you want to worry about during a rainy spring season is your roof leaking, and after a long winter you want to make sure that no damage has occurred.
2. Inspect your skylights. If you have skylights in your home, you are probably aware of the risk of leakage from your skylight. In order to make sure that this does not happen, check them to make sure all of the seals are still strong.
3. Check your gutters. This can be time consuming, but is worth it in order to get your roof ready for the summer months. It is important to make sure that your gutters have not become clogged during the winter and early spring months. You should also make sure that there are no leaks and that your gutters have not become loose. If you find no issues with your gutters, this will ensure that they will work properly through the rainy, spring and summer months. This will improve the quality of your roof.
