Prepare Your Roof for Spring Rains  

One of the biggest threats to your home is water. Water penetration can weaken supports and spur on the growth of hazardous molds. Your roof is the best defense that your home has against the elements. Before the spring and summer rains arrive, it’s important that you take a look at your roof and make sure it’s ready for the new season. Here are some things you can do to make sure your roof is ready:

Clean Out Gutters

If you didn’t get to it at the end of autumn, then you could have a buildup of leaves and other debris in your gutters. As people living in the South Carolina are well aware, spring ushers in the heavy rains and you could experience up to 20 inches by the end of summer. It’s important to clean out your gutters now before they are damaged by swelling water.

Check Seams

High winds and inclement weather can give your roof a pounding. Some of the key areas to scrutinize are around ventilation pipes, skylights and chimneys. Take a close look at the flashing and seams. Check for anything that appears loose or cracking. These are common areas for water penetration to occur.

Evaluate Shingles

Seasonal storms and high winds can tear or loosen shingles. It’s important that you act quickly to have these replaced. Water can get behind them and weaken your roof’s structural supports and also promote mold growth.

Soft Spots

As you walk the roof, be aware of any areas that feel softer than others. Once water gets behind shingles, it can cause rot. If the strength doesn’t feel consistent, get a professional inspection. A weakened roof can put you and your family in danger.

Benefits of Having Your Roof Inspected By a Professional After a Storm

After a storm, most homeowners look at their roof from their front lawn and decide that the roof is okay. However, some damages are often difficult or even impossible to see, especially if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for. We recommended that you seek a professional’s opinion immediately after a storm if you think your home may have experienced damages.

A professional will climb up on your roof to look for any signs of damage. Some of these signs might include torn seams, cracked or bruised shingles or damaged chimneys. Most of these signs can only be identified by a professional. Here are some distinct advantages of having your roof inspected by a professional after a storm.

  • Safety
  • Professional opinion
  • Insurance claims
