Our roofs come under additional stress during the Spring season.  Here are a few roofing tips to look for as we move into warmer weather: 

Early Spring Roofing Tips:

  1. General Leaks – Check for water stains on your ceilings and in your attic.  Pay close attention to places where vents penetrate your roof (bathrooms and laundry rooms) and where two roofing slopes form a valley. 
  2. Damaged Shingles – After violent winds, look for missing, lifted, warped or curled shingles. Also check for branches on your roof and shingle fragments in your yard.  Worn or damaged shingles may not withstand Spring-time storms.  
  3. Gutter Issues – Clogged or damaged gutters redirect the natural flow of water.  Both the weight of the gutters and the water flow can cause major roofing issues if left unaddressed.  
  4. Chimney Issues – Whether you used your fireplace over the winter or not, the winter season is hard on your chimney.  Deteriorating chimneys are notorious for causing leaks and should be checked regularly. 
  5. Critters – Animals become more active in the Spring.  Hearing critters in your attic could indicate a hole or other damage to your roof. 

If you notice any of these signs or if you are close to the 12-15 year life of your shingles, give Cardinal Roofing a call today to schedule a free roof inspection!
