Summer Roof Maintenance Tips

Roof maintenance, nailing screws into shingles

Summer is in full swing in New England, which brings with it a new set of maintenance concerns. Particularly when the summers are as hot, humid, & rainy as this year has been, keeping a close eye on your roofing system is essential for keeping your property protected. If you’re wondering how you can keep your roof well-maintained this summer, keep reading below for more information about our summer roof maintenance tips!

Keep An Eye On Your Attic

Particularly during such a rainy & humid summer, one of the most important things you can do is take a peek into your attic from time to time to keep an eye out for water damage. Whether the heavy rains find their way through your shingle system, or the humidity manages to cause mold inside the attic, keeping an eye on the space will go a long way towards preventing more severe water damage issues.

Trim Back Problem Branches

If you have any branches growing too close to your property, trimming them back can go a long way towards extending the lifespan of your roof. Tree branches can damage your roof in a variety of ways. They could lead to excessive moisture dripping onto particular spots on your roof. They could also break and damage your shingles, or even rub across the shingles and loosen your granules. If you have branches growing too close to your roof, trimming them back could end up saving you a lot of money down the line on repairs!

Perform An Inspection

Whether you take a thorough look around your property from the ground for signs of obvious damage, grab a ladder for a closer look, or hire a professional to perform a thorough inspection, having a clear idea of the condition of your roof is important for the health of your property. Damage can occur quickly, particularly is a leak goes undetected, so if your roof is getting older or you’re noticing visible signs of damage, having the system inspected is essential for keeping your property protected from damage!
