Common Spring Roofing Problems

Common Spring Roofing Problems

Spring is the perfect time to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. It’s also a great season to do some preventive maintenance around your home, including your roof. Problems with your roof can lead to widespread damage in your home that necessitates costly consequences.

Here are a few roofing problems you may encounter this year.

Damaged Gutters

Extreme weather takes a toll on your gutters. If your gutters are clogged or leaking, we recommend investing in a replacement. Various factors like temperature changes and strong winds can contribute to your gutters’ deterioration.

Persistent Leaks

Persistent roof leaks are common in the spring, and are among the top causes of water damage in homes. Avoid extensive damage to your home by turning to a professional like Greenawalt Roofing for emergency tarping services. 

Animal Lodgings

The physical damage your roofing system sustains usually shows up in the form of loose shingles and a damaged chimney. These create breeding grounds for insects and small animals like birds and squirrels. Over time, the added weight of these critters and their nests can damage your roofing system. If you notice any animal activity, you can contact wildlife control for expert assistance.
