3 Tips for a Healthy Asphalt Roof This Spring

3 Tips for a Healthy Asphalt Roof This Spring

The roof on your home may have survived the harsh MN winter, but from the weather report it seems like Mother Nature isn’t done dishing out the nasty stuff yet.  But before too long this wet, snowy weather will be over and it will be time to check into the damage it might have left behind.  This is an especially good time to have your roof inspected – before those inevitable heavy spring rains begin.

Having a roof inspection can provide you with more information on whether or not something needs to be repaired, replaced or perhaps if you need a new roof in general. Remember these areas of concern for your next roof inspection.

There are many reasons to have a regular roof inspection in addition to checking out winter damage. For example, read this post to learn how a roof inspection can increase the life of your roof.

  1. Don’t Neglect the Gutters:  This should be rule of thumb, since these parts of the roofing system tend to be one of the most important aspects. The gutter system was designed to prevent pooling and moisture, prevent water damage and to move the water away from the roof. When gutters are not properly maintained or cleaned out, this can cause further damage to the roof.
  2. The Integrity of Your Shingles:  When you do the inspection of the roof, you need to check for cracked, missing, peeling, curling or rotting shingles. These areas will have to be addressed during the repairs following the inspection. Any place on the roof that does not have ideal shingles is leaving it open for further issues to happen.
  3. Don’t Forget the Flashing on the Roof:  This is the metal under layer on the roof. This will need to be inspected for any flaws. When it is curling up, is missing, broken or just does not look very good then this will need to be replaced. This is allowing mold, mildew and water to seep into the area and create further issues.
