Shencorp Inc specializes in all of your commercial roofing and roof coating needs in Winchester, Charlottesville, Waynesboro, and Richmond, VA. Summer is around the corner, and it’s important to know what you need to do prepare your roof. Summer brings many different weather conditions such as thunderstorms, harsh rain, strong wind gusts, extremely hot conditions, and thick humidity. This can take a serious toll on your roof and make it more vulnerable to costly and extremely inconvenient damage. It’s hard to know exactly what you should be looking for when it comes to Summer maintenance, so here is an exclusive list to help you make sure all things are in order this Summer!
1. Do a Self-Inspection
The best way to determine if your roof is holding up is to physically get up there and take a look. Do a walk through and look for loose shingles, missing shingles, or generally damaged shingles. You should also look to see if you have any plants or biological matter growing on your roof. If something looks like it’s out of order and beyond your capabilities, you should contact a professional.
2. Find the Critters
Make sure that you check the undersides of the eaves on your home. This is where a lot of bugs like to build their hives or nests. The nest should typically be okay depending on the homeowner, but you definitely want to be careful about the hives, especially if you have small children. Stinging insects love building on the underside of eaves so be sure to be extra cautious when checking these areas, so be sure to take the necessary precautions before doing so.
3. Check on Your Gutters
During the Spring, there is actually a huge build up of debris. This is the time of the year when the seeds that settle in the gutters could take root and start growing, so be sure to nix it in the bud. After you clean out your gutters, run some water through to make sure it’s flowing nicely. Working gutters are going to be very important for those harsh Summer rainstorms.
