1. Remove Debris

The first place to start is by removing any and all debris that accumulated during the cold months. That means brushing or blowing leaves and branches, and also cleaning out your gutters to ensure they don’t get clogged.

If you notice any mold buildup, be sure to remove that as well. If you notice mold, be sure to check for soft spots or exterior water damage.

2. Check For Damage During Roof Maintenance

Once you’ve removed all the gunk, it’s time to inspect for any damage or disarray. This could look like cracks in your shingles or missing ones, rust on metal panels, lifting nails or shingles, and stains that might point to leaks.

If you notice any of these signs and ignore them, it could lead to larger problems in the future.

3. When Conducting Roof Maintenance Inspect Shingles

If you’re up on the roof, it’s important to take a good look at your shingles. Remember, you can’t see everything from the ground and it’s easy to miss things from that level. If you don’t feel like climbing all the way onto the roof, you have two options: observe from a ladder, or call in a professional.

When you’re examining the roof, there are a few things you’ll need to look for:

  • Curling shingles
  • Buckling
  • Missing tiles
  • Mold, mildew, or moss growing through

All of those signs point to an immediate need for repair or replacement, and it’s important to have the problems addressed as soon as you can.

4. Make Repairs and Replacements

If you notice any damage, that is the first thing you should focus on for your roof. Heavy snow and strong winds can have an impact on skylights and chimneys, and even on your shingles, so it’s important to repair or replace parts as soon you notice they need it.

If not, you leave your home vulnerable to the elements, which can mean leaks and water damage once the April showers roll in.
