Get Your Roof Ready With Spring Maintenance

With spring here, it is now the time to take a look at your roof. Whether you are a commercial property owner or have a residential home, spring is one of the best times to take stock and make sure your roofing system is at its best. This will better fortify your property’s defenses against summer storms and can extend the life of your roofing system overall. Winter weather can cause a lot of wear on a roof, degrading materials and even breaking a roof’s structure. Take the time to have a full assessment of your roof completed and follow our simple steps to get your roof back to protecting your home.

SPRING ROOF INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE CHECKLIST

Clean The Gutters

It may seem like the gutters were just cleaned. However, gutters catch all of the debris, materials, and objects that can land on your roof. Cleaning them will ensure there are no clogs, reducing water damage to your home. While cleaning, take special care to inspect the gutter system for any cracks, worn paint, rust, or separation. These are signs of damage to your gutter system, meaning you may want to have them inspected or replaced.

Evaluate Your Roof

When you are on the ground, take a moment and look up at your roof. Here it is important to note the look and the shape of your roof. If you notice any irregular bowing, your roof’s structure may be compromised and require replacement. Do you notice any green areas? Any missing or balding areas on your roof? These are signs of damage or mold growing on your roof.

Check Your Roofing Materials

Get an up close look at the materials on your roof. Make sure to be safe during this process. If you do not feel safe, then it is better to call a roofing contractor to check out your roofing materials. If you notice any curling or breaks in your shingles or cracks in your metal, your roofing materials are wearing and may need replacement. Be sure to note any problems for later reference.

Call A Professional Roofer

Having another set of eyes look at your roof can make sure that any space that has been weakened can be repaired. Roofing contractors can perform full inspections and then complete repair or replacement. A good roofer will point out areas of concern and then review problem areas with you for the best options.

What to Do when Your Roof is Leaking

Is water dripping down the wall? Do you have a bulging water stain on the ceiling? A leak in your roof can be a serious problem, causing extensive damage to your home. To minimize the damage, here’s what to do when your roof is leaking.

KEEP THINGS DRY
Do what you can to minimize the water damage in your home. Move rugs and furniture away from the leak and put down a tarp or bucket to collect water. Don’t have a tarp or bucket? Use a trash can, rain jacket, or vinyl tablecloth to contain the drip. You can use an old towel to blot drips from your drywall. If you have painted walls, the paint could run and smear, so don’t use your fresh white towels!

HOW BAD IS IT?
If your leak is a slight dribble down the wall, don’t panic. While you will still need to locate the source of the leak, it may not be an urgent problem. If you have a large, bulging water stain or the ceiling, you need to act quickly. The leak is building up pressure, and your drywall will not support the weight forever. After arranging your bucket and tarp, take a screwdriver and stab a hole in the middle of the bulge. This will allow the water to drain rather than spread throughout your ceiling and walls.

CALL A ROOFER
Contact a trusted roof repair company as soon as possible! Detecting the source of a leak can be difficult, and if you want quality repairs, you’ll need a professional. To find out the extent of the leak, you can check your attic for signs of water damage or wet insulation. In the winter, ice dams on your roof can often lead to leaks inside the home as well.

When your roof is leaking, don’t panic! Call your local roofers at Williams Roofing & Construction, Inc. for roof leak repair in Springfield, IL at (800) 305-1251.

Advantages of Attic Insulation

If your attic is not insulated properly, you should consider making an appointment with a roofer as soon as possible. Not only does proper attic insulation and ventilation help you save money, it also helps your roof last longer. Here are a few of the advantages of attic insulation.

SAVES YOU MONEY

advantages of attic insulationPoor insulation is one of the biggest causes of energy waste in U.S. homes, and wasted energy means wasted money. Compared to a home with no attic insulation, you could save hundreds of dollars on your monthly energy bill. Your exact savings will depend on the size and shape of your attic, but homeowners report significant savings afterward. Good insulation will quickly pay for itself. Plus, if you’re eco-conscious, reducing energy use is better for the planet.

PROTECTS YOUR ROOF

In addition to saving you money now, proper insulation and ventilation contributes to the lifespan of your roof. Moisture is a common problem in attics, which can lead to wood rot, mildew, and other damages. Instead of repairing your roof and attic later, insulate your attic now and preserve your roof.

KEEPS YOU COMFORTABLE

Another one of the advantages of attic insulation is home comfort. Proper home insulation helps protect you and your house from the fluctuating temperatures outside. Without it, you might notice more drafts or the need to run your air conditioner or heater more often. Reduce the strain on your HVAC system and stay comfortable with proper attic insulation.
