Is Your Roof Ready For Spring?

Spring is here and it can bring some harsh weather to your area, such as heavy rain and high winds, which can take, it’s toll on an old, worn down roof.  Here are some tips to help you determine if your roof is ready for spring weather:

  • Curling shingles-  If your shingles are starting to curl or bubble, they are susceptible to breaking off in high winds, leaving your roof vulnerable.
  • Deteriorating shingles- If you look in your gutters or at the bottom of your downspouts and notice a lot of shingle granule loss, this means the shingles are nearing the end of their life span.  Granule loss can also be found by just looking at the shingles, such as the picture below.
  • Missing shingles- Often times, after a heavy storm or windy day, homeowners will find shingles in their yard.  This is a definite sign that the roof is in need of repair or replacement.
  • If you notice any of these problems with your roof, then it may be time to give a roofing company a call to determine your roofing needs and solutions.
