Spring is a wonderful time to tackle some items on your home maintenance checklist. Such things could be trimming back any branches or limbs that have gotten carried away, inspecting the HVAC system for any damage, check the foundation of the home to see if any repairs are needed. Another wise maintenance item is to fully inspect the roof of your home. We don’t tend to think about roof maintenance until we notice problems and then it gets quickly moved to the top of our to-do list.

Here are some things to consider and look for when doing your springtime maintenance. 

Areas of Damage

For obvious reasons, any damaged areas need to be addressed quickly. Damaged shingles could be:

  • Missing shingles
  • Bent or curled shingles
  • Loose granules
  • Cracked shingles

It is wise to have the areas inspected, especially in the springtime, and have any damages fixed before the summer season of storms approaches. Be sure to contact EZ Roof in Houston for a quick and easy inspection. We will keep you up to date on everything from granule loss and rapid aging to potential leaks and major damages so you can take the necessary steps to take care of your roof.   

Animal Nesting

Be sure to look the roof over for evidence of critters making a home on your roof. Gutters are an excellent area for nests and animal families. The gutter system needs to be cleaned of any debris or nests so the water can run freely and the critters can be encouraged to raise their families elsewhere. Dormant chimneys or loose flashings are other areas that animals love to call home. 

Water Leaks

Do you notice any discoloration or stains on the ceilings in your attic? What about dark stains on the walls of your attic? These are indications of water damage. The area of your roof causing this damage will need to be addressed quickly before the storms arrive. If you fail to have these areas addressed, the damage will only increase and soon you may have a larger roof repair or replacement bill.

Take some time and look over your gutter system. This is an important part of your roof, and shouldn’t be neglected. The gutter system is necessary is directing the water safely away from the home and keeping your foundation and siding mold and mildew free. If your gutters are clogged and full of debris, the water cannot flow freely, which can create buildup and excellent areas of deterioration. The fasteners can become rusted, which will create holes in the gutters. As noted above, animals love to make homes in the gutters, and the areas of buildup are comfy areas to build that nest. Take the time to inspect the gutter system so it is fully prepared to drain the springtime rains away from the home. (If you want to know our roof repair cost just let us know!)
