You may think of spring cleaning as an indoor activity, but don’t forget about your gutters or your roof. Spring can actually bring a lot of complications for these exterior components.
In this post, NorthWest Construction shares a few things about common roofing problems homeowners usually face during spring.
Animals and Pests – Spring tends to bring some strong storms with it and strong storms can damage your siding and flashings, causing them to become loose. If left unchecked, pests and other animals can take refuge in your roof, which can be a health disaster in the making.
Leaks – Pretty much a given with every home. When winter rolls around, there’ll be a build-up of snow and ice. When spring arrives, the snow would melt, causing a leak in your roofing system.
Broken Eaves – Leaves that were left to pile up in your roof can cause damage to your eaves, which, in turn, can cause clogging. If there is damage, it’s best to contact your local home improvement and bathroom remodeling pros from NorthWest Construction.
Algae Growth – Leaks because of a damaged, unchecked roof can cause algae growth to occur, on your roof itself or elsewhere in your home. While the algae itself doesn’t damage your roof, it affects your curb appeal and makes your property look much too shabby. Replace the shingles with ones laced with copper granules, which are lethal to algae.
