Spring has come to New York at last, which means melting snow, blossoming trees, and roof maintenance. The winter is long on the East Coast, and its cold temperatures and snow can be very harsh on roofs and siding. If you’re looking for a roofing contractor to handle your after-winter home repairs or install a new roof, turn to JC Roofing & Siding. These roofers know New York City's roofs better than anyone, and they've been providing the best services in the area for over 40 years.
In order to ensure the integrity of your roof, following these spring maintenance tips:
- Inspect Your Gutters: Gutters take a lot of wear and tear during the winter months. Take some time to make sure they’re still functional, that they're not rusted or filled with holes, and that they’re clear of blockages, sludge, and ice.
- Inspect Your Roof's Shingles: After winter’s last frost, it’s a great idea to go up and examine the shingles on your roof. You may be able to spot some weaknesses or places that need repairs. If you do, call a professional roofer as soon as possible. Moreover, if you experienced any leaking during the winter or the rainy beginning of spring, don’t hesitate to call JC Roofing & Siding to come investigate before the water has a chance to cause more damage.
- Examine Your Chimney: If you have a chimney, the beginning of spring is a great time to have your flue cleaned and looked at by a professional. Also, the corners of your chimney (where it attaches to your roof) can be a trouble spot for roofing. If you see any shingle damage, make a note of it and call your local roofer.
