Spring Roof Clean-Up Tips
Spring is upon us, which means it’s time to clean your gutters and roof! If you are unfamiliar with how to do this yourself, unfortunately, it’s not as easy as just raking off a few leaves – you’ll need to remove all the clumps of dirt and debris. Beyond that, the best way is probably some scrubbing with a specially-made brush.
If you don’t want to clean your gutters yourself, call a company like KCG to do it for you. They are professional and experienced at this kind of work and will help you make sure your roof is in tip-top shape before the summer heat.
While I am not a fan of painting, it’s an excellent time to consider applying fresh paint to your house or other building. You can keep the color the same but have a fresh look at your home or business.
The weather may be too cold to start painting, but you can always clean. Cleaning will help you see the state of your roof and gutters for a few months. If you don’t feel like cleaning yourself, consider calling a contractor and asking how much it would cost them to do it for you.
To make sure your roof doesn’t leak this year, check it over carefully now, especially if you haven’t examined it in a while. Look for spots where water could have leaked in and check to see if the gutters are still draining well. Also, keep an eye on your paint job and make sure any flaking or cracking hasn’t spread. If this does happen, just call a contractor to repair it as soon as possible.
You can prevent leaks by keeping the gutters clean. If you notice signs of water damage or leaks, just clean them up and make sure they are draining well.
Do a few tasks like these every year so your roof will be in perfect shape before the summer comes around. Make sure your only work is to clean and inspect, if not both.
