Roof Maintenance Tips for the Summer

Contents

A lot of people are gladly busy during long days of the summer season. In the roofing business, roofing contractors are typically fully booked since many homeowners take advantage of clear blue skies and fresh, cool breeze to complete their tasks. In simpler words, summer is a timely season for roof repair and maintenance. But before you roll up your sleeves, here are some things you can do to keep your roof in tip-top shape this summer.

Look for Signs of Roof Damage

The roof is arguably the most vulnerable part of your home or commercial building, and for the right reasons. All throughout the year, it is exposed to extreme heat, sharp-hitting hail, and heavy downpour. These circumstances can result in serious structural damage. In the summer, make sure to walk around the perimeter of your property and check for signs of damage such as shingle granules on the ground and dents on the roof due to fallen branches or twigs. 

See to it that before winter settles in, any repair that needs to be done is already addressed by a local roofing contractor.

Clean Gutters and Drains

Gutters and drains are vital components of the roofing system. They are largely responsible for preventing water issues like overflowing and basement flooding. If drains or gutters are clogged, typically due to organic debris and bird nests, rainwater will not be able to flow seamlessly away from your property.

Inspect the Ventilation System

Poor attic ventilation is a recipe for roofing disaster. If there is no healthy air circulation in the attic, the rest of your home will suffer the consequences, too. One main example is having large patches of mold and mildew on the ceiling or walls. A suspicious spike in your cooling bills also indicates that you need to repair your ventilation system, or else you may have no choice but to call for roof replacement.
