Now that the weather is starting to warm up in Utah, many have been hit with spring fever. Along with that comes the desire to get the outside yard and house cleaned up and ready for the warm summer months ahead. We thought we would share with you our spring cleaning your roof checklist to make sure your roof continues to perform its best during the summer months.
1. Trim back those trees
Spring is the best time to prune most trees. A well-pruned tree is not only good for the health of the tree, but is also important to help make sure the tree doesn’t damage your home. If you notice branches that are near your house, eaves, or roof, it’s a good idea to get those trimmed back. If you don’t have a green thumb, or if the trees are hanging over your house, it would be best to call a professional tree trimming service.
2. Clean out the rain gutters
Spring time in Utah provides for rain showers instead of snow. Any rain that hits your roof will flow down into the rain gutters. If the rain gutters are clogged with any debris, they can back up and cause damage to your home. While you are cleaning out your rain gutters, look for any loose gravel from the shingles in the gutter. If you are notice large amounts of loose gravel, it may be a sign that your roof needs to be repaired or even replaced. Give us a call and we will do a free inspection of your roof to provide you peace of mind.
3. Get a roof inspection
