Tips from Roofers Explain How to Get Your Roof ‘Summer Ready’
There is nothing like summer in the Lower Mainland. Whether you are gearing up to hit the beach, stroll White Rock’s promenade, or go for a bike ride, don’t forget to show some pre-summer TLC to your roof. Since the drier, warmer weather is already here, now is the perfect time to get your roof ready before the wet stuff returns. To get your roof primed for summer, our roofers have put together some helpful roofing maintenance tips for homes in White Rock and South Surrey.
Look for roof damage
Icy rain, snow, and freezing temperatures—the winter elements can wreak havoc on roofs in White Rock and South Surrey. To keep your roof in great condition throughout the summer, look for signs of roof damage.
If you have noticed any loose, missing, or curled shingles, reach out to our roofers to have the damage repaired.
Do an attic check
Poor ventilation can cause major damage to your roof and your wallet. Without proper aeration in your attic, condensation can form, resulting in moisture damage. What’s more, heat can get trapped in your home, forcing your air conditioner to work harder during the summer months.
Don’t leave your White Rock or South Surrey property susceptible to moisture buildup and higher energy bills. Our roofers provide quality attic ventilation analysis and repair services.
Check your gutters
The rainy months can clog up gutters, fast. Take some time to look over your gutters for possible blockages. Twigs, leaves, branches, and other debris can collect in the gutter system, impeding waterflow, and that can cause damage to your home’s siding, foundation, and landscaping.
Gunky gutters? Don’t wait too long to have them cleaned out. If you need your gutter system inspected and decluttered, turn to Landmark Roofing.
Keep an eye out for mold
Moisture creates mold and mildew, causing damage to your roof and putting you and your loved ones’ health at risk. Inspect your roof for dark spots and streaking. If you come across any, it could be mold and will need to be removed as soon as possible.
