With such a mild winter, spring months April – May is ideal for fulfilling a spring roofing checklist. Spring is the best time to work with a DFW roofer to prepare your home for summer.

Should You Schedule a Spring Roofing Maintenance Check?

So, to help you take advantage of the mild temperatures here is a home roofing checklist thanks to our friend Bob Vila.

Home Walk-Around

Your initial inspection should begin on the ground, walking around your property and looking for problems. Try to get a vantage from all angles, paying close attention to shingles, problem spots, flashing, and chimneys.

Roof

There’s no reason to climb up to your roof when a ground vantage is perfectly acceptable. Keep a look out for loose shingles, missing shingles, cracks in the roof or roofing material, or shingles that have shifted. If you had water problems inside your home during winter, identify where that problem spot occurred on the roof.

Chimney

Even though brick seems impervious, age can take a great toll on it. Look for cracks in the chimney facade, missing bricks in the chimney, loose flashing around the base of the chimney where it meets the roof, and calcium deposits on the exterior.

Gutters

Gutters can withstand a lot, but still sometimes need repair or replacement. Further, if you are certain that your gutters are clogged, it’s possible that they are full of leaves. But, if you have asphalt shingles, a gutter clogged with tiny pieces of gravel might mean that your shingles need to be replaced.

Don’t let the weather prevent you from protecting your most valuable asset. Perform a spring roof inspection by yourself or with a professional roofing contractor today.
