Summer Roofing Maintenance Tips
Keep your roof in tip-top shape!
Sweet summertime! Gardening, swimming, and relaxing on the patio with friends and family are just some of the great Summer activities we love to do here in Louisiana. However, with warmer weather comes time for regular home maintenance as well. Taking care of your roof may not be a top priority on your Summertime to-do list, but ignoring your roof could end up costing you some repairs or a new roof entirely.
One of the first things you should do once the warmer months hit is investing in a proper roof inspection. While it may be easy to check for cracked or missing shingles yourself, having a professional inspect your roof is important for those easily missed problem areas. Garcia Roofing will make sure to check not only your shingles, but also the flashing, chimney, and eaves to ensure that your roof is in tip-top shape for both the grueling summer heat and the upcoming winter months.
Another big tip for maintaining your roof during the Summer months is to keep it clean. Throughout the winter and spring, seeds, petals, limbs, leaves, and so much more end up on the roof. Gutters become clogged with leaves and other debris, and it is vital to keep these cleaned for the overall health of your roof. Anything that can trap in moisture on your roof can result in mildew and mold damage. Moss and algae can start to build up on the roof, which can lead to damage as well. Garcia Roofing will take their time cleaning your roof to keep it in its best condition.
