Items a roofer may look for during your spring roof inspection include:
- Loose, broken and missing shingles or tiles
- Hail/wind damage to shingles
- Curled or blistered shingles
- Adequate ventilation
- Exposed nail heads
- Deteriorated rubber seals along pipe jacks
- Loose or missing flashings along walls, skylights, and chimneys
- Damage to gutters
- Damaged vent collars and turbines
- Other signs that may lead to a potential leak
Properly functioning gutter systems will protect a home for many years when maintained seasonally. Gutters tend to get clogged with debris and leaves, especially during the fall, which makes the spring the most important time to inspect them. For example, clogged gutters cause water to pool in one area if the water can’t flow freely through the system, which may lead to much-added weight and causing the gutters to sag. The overflow of water in this area may also cause more damage to the soffit, fascia boards and foundation.
You can check the performance of your gutter system by waiting for a rainy day. Take a look at the downspouts and ensure that water is emptying freely into the downspouts. Also, check around the perimeter of the home for water emptying over the gutter. If the downspout isn’t draining, and the water is leaking over the edges, you most likely need to spend some time clearing out your gutter system from debris.
