With spring in full swing in New England, it is important to ensure that your home’s roof is in good repair, considering it is your home’s first, and most important, line of defense against the elements! After the winter thaw has occurred, it is important to take stock of your home’s exterior and determine if there is any damage and need of repairs or maintenance! If you’re interested in learning about what you should be looking out for on your home’s roof this spring, take a look at our blog for a few tips!
The most important piece of your roofing system is certainly your shingles. They compose the bulk of your roof, and help to keep water out of your home, which is important for the integrity of your home. That being said, it is very important to take a look at your home’s roof and making sure that all of your shingles are in good condition in order to ensure that there are no leaks or other damage occurring to your roof. Have a roofing professional come to your home to examine your shingle system each spring and ensure that there is no damage to your shingles that could potentially compromise your roof’s integrity
Another aspect of roof maintenance that it is important to consider as you’re maintaining your roof is your gutter system. Your gutters are one of the most essential pieces of your home’s exterior, helping to protect your home’s foundation, siding, fascia & soffit boards from water damage. If you’re trying to keep your home protected from water damage, making sure that your gutter system is kept in good repair and working order is one of the most important things you can do!
Another area that you should work on maintaining is your flashing. Your roof’s flashing is installed around the chimney and valleys in your roof, helping to protect it from water damage by keeping water from entering those areas of your roof. You should have a roofing professional come to examine the flashing in your roof in order to make sure that your flashing hasn’t rusted in order to keep your home protected!
