4 Tips to Protect Your Roof This Spring, Jenks, Oklahoma

Spring brings with it many different types of weather, and your home’s roofing is what keeps you safe from the elements. However, the heavy rains that tend to fall this time of year can either cause damage to it or exploit weaknesses that were already there. To reduce the risk of problems, and the associated costs, the guide below offers advice for the season.

Roofing Maintenance Checklist

1. Clear the Gutters

As spring showers start to fall, they can wash debris off your roof and into the gutters, creating clogs. Without a place to go, new rainwater will soak your shingles, potentially causing leaks, or fall to the ground too close to the house, leading to foundation issues. Therefore, check these channels periodically and make sure they are clear of leaves, twigs, and animal nests.

2. Trim Nearby Trees

Overgrown tree branches can scrape and damage your shingles. Luckily, for many species, spring is the best time of year to have them trimmed—not only for your roof’s sake but also because it is often healthy for your plants.

3. Clean Off Mold & Mildew

Having mold or mildew on the roof isn’t just an eyesore. It can also spread inside your home and pose health risks. It is most likely to grow in the warm, humid environment of spring, so power wash the shingles and siding if you notice it starting to form.

Roofing4. Look Inside

An easy way to make sure your roofing is in solid condition is to check in the attic. Pay attention to any signs of water damage, peeling paint, or mildew odors, as these are signs you have a problem that could require roof repair. Additionally, if your roof is going on ten years or more, or if it was subjected to severe storms recently, schedule a professional inspection. A contractor will look for damage to the shingles and flashing and ensure your gutters are prepared for the upcoming rains.
