Roofer In Apple Valley MN | Spring And Summer Roof Maintenance Tips (Part 1)
As the seasons get warmer, spring cleaning (which sometimes shifts to summer cleaning) is an important part of owning a home, and there are many things to be aware of when considering your roof. Capstone Bros Contracting knows that keeping your roof maintained and resilient to damages is important because it is your first line of defense against storms. Here are 4 things to consider when you’re performing roof maintenance this season: Roofer In Apple Valley MN
Inspect Your Roof
As a homeowner, it’s important to inspect your own roof to stay up to date on any damages you may have and the repairs you should make. This will help keep your home safe and resilient against storm damage. One of the first things you’ll notice when inspecting your own roof is your roof’s shingles, which are the first line of defense against storm damage. It isn’t recommended for homeowners without the proper knowledge and training to go up onto the roof and assess damages themselves due to the risks for an inexperienced person. You might consider using a pair of binoculars to see up-close. From the ground, you may notice missing shingles or damages such as cracking, warping, blistering, dents, or discoloration. These all indicate you have some type of damage to your roof and that you should contact your local roofers to assess the damages.
Get A Roof Inspection
Getting a professional roof inspection is one of the best ways to prevent damages to both your exterior and your interior. A roofing contractor is knowledgeable in what to look for on your roof to determine what types of damages you may have and the best way to repair or replace your roof. Sometimes roof damage can be easy to spot to the untrained eye, but other times damages aren’t so apparent. Professional roofers are trained to spot damages that aren’t so obvious. The best part? Capstone Bros Contracting offers free roof inspections to help you ensure your roof and home are safe.
Maintain Your Trees
Tree maintenance may not seem directly related to the spring cleaning of your roof, but it can definitely impact your roof if your trees aren’t properly trimmed and maintained. Dead and diseased trees pose a huge risk to your home if they’re close enough to fall over and crash onto your roof. Branches that hang over your roof run the risk of causing large amounts of impact damage, also putting the safety of your home at risk.
In addition, branches and leaves can fall and accumulate on your roof, which doesn’t seem like a big deal but will eventually accumulate enough moisture to cause water damage to your roof. Mold, mildew, and fungus can also form in these moist areas. Contact your local roofing company if you’re concerned you may have impact damage, water damage, or any other damages to your roof.
Watch Out For Mold
Mold is a dangerous consequence of not maintaining your roof and home. Mold often forms resulting from water damage that goes untreated for some time. It may form on your exterior or interior. Mold can cause several negative health effects such as sinus issues, throat irritation, skin problems, and sometimes it even hinders breathing. If you notice water damage on your exterior, you may have water damage resulting in mold in other areas of your home too. Contact your local roofers near Apple Valley MN as soon as you can.
