Spring brings beautiful blossoms of flowers, weather becomes warmer and brings potential problems with your roof. That last one tends to always be a surprise, but this is the season of the year when roofing issues become most visible. In fact, there are 3 big main reasons why you should get your roof inspected during springtime.
One of the largest reasons for inspecting a roof during spring is due to the warmer weather. Now that winter weather is becoming less frequent, there are less cold days and the sun plays a role in drying everything out (thank God, right). Fortunately, this makes it much easier and safer to conduct a thorough inspection of all aspects of your roof, including the shingles and gutters. While you could attempt a look yourself, a roofing expert knows exactly what to look for and can spot any problems more accurately, in other words, “leave it to the pros”.
Oh yes, the sun is shining bright, it’s easy to spot any damage that may have occurred over the winter months. A professional an licensed contractor can clear away any remains of fall leaves or debris from the roof and gutters as part of general maintenance. Then, while already there they can inspect the roof for water damage, cracks, missing or loose shingles and other signs of wear and tear that is more likely to happen during winter. Consider this maintenance work, so you can have fixed any issues before they become worse.
Springtime is the ideal time to schedule any maintenance or repairs before the weather changes again, and for Florida, we all know late summer brings heavy rain and possibly a few hurricanes. If you don’t need to replace shingles or rotted wood, you can plan these repairs before the summer days, so any damage won’t affect your summer plans or your energy bill (that is a whole other reason to get any roofing repairs fixed, you do not want an even higher summer electric bill). A professional and licensed roofing contractor can help you figure out the necessary repairs and set up a convenient timeline for fixing all the issues.
