1. Roof Leaks
During the winter months, wild winter weather can lead to all sorts of damage to your roof. The most common sources of winter roof damage include strong winds and ice dams. Large leaks are often easy to identify when they’ve become severe enough to intrude into ceilings and walls. But it’s also important to look for more minor leaks that could lead to more significant damage when spring winds and rains come. This is best handled through a professional roofing inspection.
2. Gutter Clogs
During the fall, gutters can become filled with leaves, twigs, and other debris. If you don’t clean your gutters regularly, this can lead to gutter clogs. Clogged gutters can become a serious problem when spring rains come and water isn’t effectively diverted away from the home. Further, clogged gutters can seem like cozy living quarters to many small animals.
To avoid gutter clogs, be sure to clean your gutters every spring. Or consider having Gutter Guards installed and do away with the chore altogether!
3. Shingle Damage
After winter’s storms, you can end up with some damaged, loose, or even missing shingles. You don’t want to let this problem go unaddressed as it can create a vulnerability in your roof membrane. If you can identify curling or missing shingles while looking at your roof or you spot areas where granules are missing, you should contact a roof repair team right away.
