It’s the first day of spring as we write this blog post, and it’s a glorious day on the South Shore — 46 degrees and sunny! Plus, we’re hearing it’s going to be a warmer spring than usual. And, that means, there will be lots of enticement to get out there walking in your particular South Shore neighborhood.
We’re suggesting that when you return from your first spring stroll, you make and take the opportunity as you come close to arriving at your doorstep — but are still far enough away that you can view your home’s various rooftops — that you look for any damage that may have occurred related to your roof during the winter.
How To Check For Winter Roof Damage
As we explained in this previous blog post, you should do the following to check your home or commercial roof for damage that may have occurred during the winter:
- Look to see if any shingles are missing.
- Check for any exposed nails.
- See if any of your “flashing” is now “waving” or has become loose, or is broken.
- Look for any gutters that have become detached.
Need A New Roof?
Maybe viewing your roof after your stroll, and from the street, immediately causes you to think it looks old, tired, dilapidated, etc. and you want to improve your curb appeal this spring with a brand new roof vs. repairing a few things. The team of roofing contractors at our South Shore roofing company brings years of expertise in residential roof installment, and would be glad to help. Just reach out for a complimentary consultation.
