Winter weather can take a toll on your home’s exterior, especially heavy snow, ice and high winds. With winter ending, now is a good idea to check your roof and gutters for signs of damage. If they have issues, make sure to address them immediately. Keep in mind that delaying repairs will only make the problem worse. 

A trusted installer of gutter caps shares how to look for roof and gutter winter damage. 

Check Your Interior

Indications of roof and gutter damage can be present inside your home. You’ll know they have been compromised if you see signs of water damage, such as damp spots on walls and ceilings. Wet areas on the floor can also mean water is seeping in from the ground. If you’ve noticed any of these issues in your house, contact a professional for an inspection. They know how to locate leaks, fix them and prevent them from recurring. 

Inspect Your Exterior

After assessing your interior, it’s time to go outside and check your roof. You don’t necessarily need a ladder to perform a quick inspection. Simply walking around your yard and looking at your roof from the ground can tell you a lot about its condition. Check for uneven slopes, dents from hail or debris, and damaged shingles. You should replace cracked, loose or missing shingles as soon as possible to prevent water from entering your living space. 

Pay Attention to Your Gutters

Heavy snow loads and ice dams can strain your gutter system. Obstructions in your gutters like ice formations and debris can clog them. When this happens, water will fail to drain properly from your roof and home, potentially causing damage in and outside your home. Clogged gutters can contribute to basement flooding, roof and siding issues, foundation problems and landscaping erosion.
