Spring is finally here. But before you know it, the season’s storms will already be raining down on your roof, hard and relentless. So what are you going to do to protect your home, especially your roofing system which will take the brunt of it?
It’s going to be a battle, and you know it, so you will need to get your roof ready as early as now. That said, this will be a job for the pros. In this post, we’ll share some ways you can better prepare your home for the coming spring storms.
- Roof Maintenance – Wash off debris, mud and dirt here and there. Make sure your roof is clean once in a while, maybe every week or so. The important thing is to keep the gutters and drainage system working to avoid clogs when the storm comes.
- Trim Those Trees – You don’t want logs to fall on your roof during a violent storm, so cut those looming branches down and eliminate the risk early. You can also trim down the leaves to lessen the debris flying into the roofing system.
- Secure the Exterior – Think about decks, patios, balconies and verandas. If you have furniture and valuable displays outside, you should secure them when the snow finally melts. Because a storm or strong rains can come any day from then, and these things can become flying projectiles when a strong wind blows. Keep them secure and you’ll also be doing everyone a favor.
