Spring Roof Inspection & Maintenance Checklist

With spring weather gradually arriving in the mountains, now is a good time to inspect your roof for damage and perform any needed repairs. Here are the items to check:

  • Inspect the roof for missing, damaged or warped shingles and replace them as needed
  • On metal roofs, check the surface for dents, warping and missing fasteners
  • If mold or fungus is growing on the roof, it can be professionally cleaned. Zinc or lead control strips can be installed to prevent future growth
  • Rusting metal areas should be resurfaced, primed and painted
  • Inspect flashing around chimneys, vents, skylights, etc. for signs of wear and have any damaged areas repaired
  • Inspect snow guards for damage and ensure they are securely attached to the roof
  • Seal any cracks around joints and chimneys with new mortar
  • Clean pine needles and debris from gutters and downspouts
  • Ensure that downspouts and gutters are connected and directing water away from the structure
  • If there are any signs of leaks such as dark spots on the ceiling, dampness and mildew in the attic, etc. call The Roofing Company to have the roof inspected immediately
