With spring comes the annual spring cleaning. Now, that usually leaves people with clean houses on the inside. What about the roof though? Your roof can be subject to a lot of damage and debris without the right maintenance. This can damage your walls and siding. This roof cleaning checklist will help you with roofing maintenance.
Leaves and Pine Needles
This is the easiest to clean off, but if it is too difficult, you can consult a roofing company like Skyline Contracting. A bit of leaves are fine, but if they pile or crowd together, you run the risk of having them gather moisture. Worse, they become dry material and can be a fire hazard on hot days.
Mold and Moss
Basically, having anything growing on your roof is bad. First, it retains moisture, which can damage your roof, create leaks and even ruin the inside of your house. Not only that, but these things can ruin any protective coating that your roof might have.
In some cases, tree limbs can reach the windows and scratch them. You need to keep them away from your roof away. Those limbs can scratch your shingles and even remove any protective coating. A good way to go about this is to trim the limbs.
Different seasons give your house different challenges, and, sometimes, those challenges leave the house with small issues, especially with the gutters. Debris can clog them, or they can rust out if they’re older.
For better and more thorough inspections, however, consider a roofing specialist. It can cost you a little bit today, but a well-maintained roof can save you so much on repairs. And, there is no price on the peace of mind knowing you have a good roof over your head.
