Springtime Roof Maintenance and Repair

The seasonal changes must be taken into consideration when roof repairs and maintenance are done. Because roofing issues can change with the changing climatic conditions. Problems such as:

  • The roof is vulnerable to snow accumulation and ice buildup
  • Flashings are leaking
  • Ice dams can form in your gutters or at the edge of the roof.
  • Broken or cracked shingles
  • Blocked attic vents and insulation damage

These roofing issues can be addressed by professionals who offer roof repairs, ice damming, attic ventilation, fascia, and soffit inspections, as well as other services.

You must take the same steps to prepare your roof in spring. This list contains seven key points to make spring roofing easier.

  1. Clearing Debris
    It is important to clean the roof. This allows you to see better and can help you determine which areas need repair. Once the roof is dry brush off any branches, twigs, or leaves. As part of your inspection, check gutters, downspouts, and around the fascia and soffit.
  2. Leak Repair
    To find any leaks, inspect the roof's underside, flashings, and chimney. Water damage is often indicated by darkened patches. You should also call professional help if you see black mold.
  3. Using Loose Flashings
    Flashings are metal pieces that protect chimneys and vents. Make sure they are securely attached to the roof.
  4. Replacing Shingles
    Roof repairs include the replacement of missing shingles. Before waterproofing vents, it is important to take care of any broken, curled, or missing pieces. You can repair small holes, cracks, and tears, but damaged or missing shingles will need to be replaced.
  5. Resealing Vents
    Check the vents for cracks, chips, or tears to ensure that the sealants are still in place. To prevent mishaps, be careful when inspecting the area around the vents. To prevent further damage, use a sealant of high quality that lasts.
  6. Replacing Popped Nails
    These are the reasons roof nails pop:

     

    • Nails are either too short or corroded
    • They were inserted between the seams
    • Nailing was not done correctly
    • They won't be held by the roof decking.
    • The caulking is aging and in poor condition

    The problem will not be solved by simply applying cement or sealant. You can remove the poppin' nails by removing them from the area and placing a new one about an inch from the original spot.

  7. Recaulking Around Chimneys
    Caulking around the chimney should be done with care. Scrape off any remaining caulking until you can see the flashing below. To prevent water damage, apply the sealant. Apply the sealant to each flashing piece.
