Columbus Roofing Maintenance for the Springtime

Spring is just around the corner and the weather is warming up. Now is the perfect time to see how your roof held up during the winter. It's important to check on several aspects, especially after a brutal winter -- as we often experience in Ohio. This article will provide some pointers on maintaining your Columbus roofing system.

This winter sure was a brutal one.

Hopefully, you did not experience any unfortunate circumstances when it came to

your home - especially your Columbus roofing system. Nonetheless, now that

spring is upon us and the weather is warming up, this is the perfect time to check

out how your roof held up this winter.

Whether or not you have been keeping up

with the maintenance of your Columbus roofing system, there are some things

that are extra important to check up on after the winter.

Your

Gutters

When it comes to your roof - and the

safety of your home underneath it - your gutters certainly are the most

important part of the system. A clogged gutter system can be a recipe for disaster.

Not only will blocked up gutters eventually lead to leaks and damages to your

home's structure, but they can shorten the life of your Columbus roofing system.


  • First and

    foremost, check out the gutters, yourself. Climb up on a ladder and

    investigate inside to see if any large chunks of debris have built up.

  • Using your

    hands or a garden trowel, remove any large debris that you can find.

  • Lastly, use

    a power washer to clean out any remaining dirt that may have built up or

    hardened throughout the gutter system.


Depending upon the number of trees you have on your home's property, you may

want to clean out those gutters on your Columbus roofing system more often than

just spring cleaning!

Your

Trees

Since we just talked about gutters, it

is important to also think about the trees on your property. Not only can they

drop debris that could potentially clog your gutters, but also trees,

themselves, can destroy Columbus roofing system. If you have trees that

"overhang" a roof, you will certainly want to trim them right away. This will

stop debris, and keep an unnecessary load from weighing down on your roof.

Your

Shingles

Any homeowner knows that the secret to a

long-lasting Columbus roofing system is maintaining the quality of the

shingles. After you clean your gutters, next, you might want to get up on the

roof and take a peek at what's going on up there.

  • Scan the

    entirety of the roof's shingles for any missing pieces, peeling, grain

    loss, or discoloration.

  • If you do

    find any shingles that are broken or beginning to lose grain, you will

    definitely want to replace them.


Replacing a shingle can be an easy DIY

job. All you would need to do is remove the old shingle, and the nails and

fasteners holding it down, and replace it with a new shingle of the same size

and then nail it down. Afterwards, cover the nails with roofing cement and leave

some weight on the replaced shingle, at least overnight, to really seal it

tightly.
