Springtime Means Roof-Checking Time

Posted on May 1, 2018 · Posted in Roof Maintenance

It’s time to inspect your roof for damage. Maine winters take a toll on our homes and property, and the severe late-season storms in March and April may have caused some damage to your roof.

While it is never safe for a homeowner to climb onto their own roof, there are plenty of things you can do to search for signs of damage from the safety of ground level.

Start with what you know

Did shingles blow off in a storm? Did you have a leak due to snowmelt behind an ice dam? Did heavy snow and ice damage your gutters? Write down any roof-related problems that may have arisen over the winter.

Search for visible wear or damage

Walk around the perimeter of your home. Inspect your roof from all angles to identify any possible damage, missing shingles, mold, cracks, or other signs that your roof may need attention. Pay close attention to areas around chimneys and skylights where shingles are more likely to be damaged.
