Summertime Maintenance for your Roof

Table of Contents

The roofing of your home is one of the most important things protecting you and your family from the outdoors. No matter what season, your roof is always at risk of getting damaged. This is why routine inspections should be made by either yourself, or a professional team, preferably the one who installed the roof. 663 Exteriors wants all of our customers to have a great experience with the roofing systems we install. Below are some tips to keep your roof well maintained and lasting longer in those warm summer months.

During the hot summer months our roofs are at risk of damage due to the high heat and and summer rains and storms. Here are some key areas to inspect so that you do not miss an issue that could cost you.

  • Do a complete walk around inspection of your roof from the ground. You will want to look to see if there are any shingles that are lifting, missing, cracked, or dented. You will also want to be looking for any kind of moss, debris, or other kinds of fungal growth as well. This could be an indicator of sitting moisture that may affect your roofing system.
  • Inspect the metal strips (or flashing) around your chimney, skylights, vents, satellite dishes, or anything else that could be sticking out of your roof. These flashing can loosen or become damaged with harsh weather in the summer.
  • Check the underside of your eaves for debris and nests, and also check for loose gutters. If anything is damaged you’ll want to fix or replace it so that water is diverted from your house.
  • Lastly, make sure that you clean out your gutters, downspouts, and roof drains. Check them by running water from your hose through them and if the water is flowing freely with no leaks, you are good to go.

Roof maintenance is very important because any of these issues can cause serious hassle when it comes time for colder months. It could cause damage to your home and its structure as well as cost you more on your energy bill if things are broken, loose, or out of place. Save yourself the stress and call our experienced home improvement contractors at 663 Exteriors.
