Now that we are in the full swing of spring, it is time to talk about some routine roof maintenance for your roof so that it will weather the storms that spring and summer may bring to us in Utah and the Intermountain West.
Start by clearing your roof of any debris. This includes checking the gutters and getting rid of any leaves that may have accumulated. This sounds simple, but a quick clean up can identify issues that could be hiding behind the debris.
One of the best things you can do at the start of the season is to hire a professional to inspect your roof. An inspection will point out any issues that need to be addressed, including any damage that might have occurred. Even seemingly small problems can later lead to big problems if they are not addressed. A small investment in a professional inspection could prevent a much larger cost later.
If you find significant issues or damage, consider simple replacements that will certainly pay off. Making the investment now and fixing problem areas early can save money in the long run. Ignoring minor roof maintenance issues today can lead to potentially costly problems and major issues in the years to come. Again, the old adage of an ounce of prevention holds true in this case.
