Spring is here in New England and that means rain, rain and more rain. And with April quickly approaching we are sure to see some of those famous April showers roll around. Your roof is your first line of defense against inclement weather so make sure your roof is leak free before the spring showers hit. The next big rain storm can put your roof in more trouble than you think.
Fix any leaks:
Water spots inside your home on your ceiling or walls may be an indicator you have a roof leak. You will want to find the source of the leak and get it repairs as soon as possible to keep it from getting worse with more rain.
Loose flashing is one of the main causes for a leaky roof. Make sure to have your flashing check for sign of loosening of corroding. Loose flashing should be resealed and corroded flashing should be replaced completely
Clean out Gutters and Downspouts:
Gutters and downspouts are your roofs defense against rain. Your gutters and downspouts ensure that rainwater has somewhere to go. Make sure you keep them clog free to avoid backups and excess water on your roof. As an added measure trim any large trees around your house to reduce the amount of debris that builds up in your gutters.
