Why You Can't Afford to Skip Spring Maintenance

Winter can leave a roofing system vulnerable and damaged. Heavy snow, repetitive freezing and thawing, and pooling water can all take their toll. Don't wait for a problem to react, get ahead of costly repairs with a preventative maintenance routine.


START WITH AN INSPECTION

Regular inspections should occur at least twice a year to be an effective prevention. Spring is a crucial time to check flashing, penetrations, seams, and membranes for damage before they become a problem. A little spring maintenance now, a lot of savings later.


DO A LITTLE SPRING CLEANING

If spring has sprung in your gutters and downspouts, you may find moisture problems in your future. Clearing away rogue vegetation and settled debris prevents drainage issues and eliminates the conditions that lead to surface mold. Keeping a clean and cleared rooftop is a good recipe for a long roof-life.


DIG A LITTLE DEEPER

When it comes to moisture, things are not always as they appear. Specialized thermal equipment can locate areas of moisture otherwise invisible to the eye. Trapped just below the surface, even the smallest amount of water can cause serious damage when undetected. Deck deterioration, mold, and wet insulation can all lead to expensive repairs and higher energy bills. An in-depth moisture inspection may not be necessary every spring, but it may be worth considering if the initial inspection finds concerns or if moisture has been an issues in the past.
