Spring cleaning for roofs

Leaves in gutters

In Oklahoma, we never know if we have entered spring or if one last cold snap is waiting around the bend. While you are waiting out the last cold snap of the season to plant your garden, there is something else you can do to ensure your home is beautiful and functional: take care of your roof maintenance!

At Land Enterprises Roofing, we believe in the power of proactive maintenance to preserve the health and longevity of your roof. Here’s a guide to spring cleaning for your roof and other tips for maintaining your home as we transition through the seasons.

Spring roof maintenance checklist

Here are the things you should take a look at on your roof after it has weathered the harsh winter:

  • Gutters: Check and clean your gutters thoroughly. Clogged gutters can lead to water damage on your roof and your home’s foundation. Ensure they are free of leaves, twigs, and debris for proper water flow.
  • Shingles: Inspect your roof for damaged, loose, or missing shingles. Winter storms can take a toll, and compromised shingles can lead to leaks and water damage. Early detection and repair are key to extending your roof’s lifespan.
  • Flashing: Examine the flashing around chimneys, vents, and skylights to ensure it is intact and secure. Flashing seals the roof’s seams from water and debris; any damage or displacement can lead to water ingress.
  • Tree Limbs: Cut these back to ensure that if they fall during a storm, they won’t crash through your roof or damage your home in another way.
  • Debris: Remove any debris accumulated on the roof. Leaves, pine needles, and other materials can retain moisture against the roof surface, leading to mold, mildew, and rot.
  • Ventilation: Ensure your attic ventilation is unobstructed. Proper ventilation prevents heat and moisture buildup that can weaken your roof structure or cause ice dams in colder weather.
  • Critter Check: Look for signs of animal or insect infestation. Squirrels, birds, and insects can cause significant damage if they find a way into your attic or eaves.
