Are you looking for something productive (and important) to do this spring? Your home maintenance, particularly for your roof, should be at the top of that list! While you may think everything is all right at the moment, things can change, especially when summer rolls around. By then, doing repairs will be more difficult thanks to the weather, so it’s best to do it now while the weather is still agreeable.
Here is advice from Kroll Construction, one of the area’s leading roofing companies, on how to conduct your home maintenance routine.
Have an Inspection
Unless you know what to look out for and know exactly where to find them, you probably won’t be able to tell what needs work. You might know where some leaks and possible holes are, but that’s not the end of it when you need to maintain your roof. Ask a professional to come and see what needs to be done.
Focus on the Flashing
The flashing consists of thin strips, usually made of metal, that protect the most vulnerable parts of the roof from water intrusion. These are most problematic areas of the roof. You’ll thank yourself for having the foresight to inspect and fix them if necessary when the spring rains come.
Make It Safe
While spring is the safest time for roofing companies to inspect your home, be sure that they have the right equipment and skill set. Some contractors only install and replace roofs; not everyone is certified to perform repair work. Double-check and do your due diligence.
Less Foot Traffic, Better Roofing
Having a lot of people on your roof is worse than anything winter can do. Control the number of people up there, if at all possiblel. Use roof pavers, walkway pads and membrane protection.
