Now that snow is melting and spring is here, it is time to check your roofing system for winter-related damage. A gutter guard cleaning contractor shares some top tips here: 

  • Check the interior of your home. The first thing you should do is look for signs of water leaks in the interior of your home. Damp spots on the floor and wall may indicate a roof leak above. Stains and discoloration on the ceiling are also surefire signs that water has leaked into your home. Cracked plasters can allow moisture to seep into your living space. New, small leaks are not always easy to spot, however, so it is best to call on a roofer to inspect your system thoroughly.
  • Check the surface of the roof. Are the slopes of your roof straight and even? Are there pockmarks or dents due to hailstones pelting on your roof? Look for buckling or missing shingles. When exposed to high winds, shingles may lift and blow off in the wind. When you see foreign objects like tree branches or satellite dishes that need to be removed from the site, do not attempt to fix the problem on your own. Call professionals to do the job instead.
  • Check the gutters. When inspecting the roof for winter damage, do not forget about your gutters. Check for leaves, twigs and other debris that may have clogged your gutters and prevented the proper runoff of snowmelt or rainwater from the roof. Also, be wary of ice dams. When a ridge of ice gets big enough, it can pull shingles and gutters off with it. This will damage anything it falls on, such as windowsills or shrubs.
