Spring is Here: Is Your Roof Ready?
Spring is here and now is the time for your annual Spring Roof Maintenance. We all know that the weather in Georgia is unpredictable, but with every Spring Season, we can always expect heavy rains and storms. Is your roof ready?
These months before the true, Georgia heat hits is the perfect time of year to begin a Roof Inspection to determine if a roof repair or replacement is necessary. According to Platinum Roofing Owner, Robert Shelby, it is always a good idea for Spring Roof Maintenance. Especially, if you’re unsure if you have roof damage or your roof is over six years old. Shingles in need of repair or replacement can cause moisture to seep in underneath, which can lead to further damage to the wood structure beneath them.
How do you know if you have Roof Damage?
Here’s what to look for:
Do you have balding shingles?
This is a good indication that your roof needs a replacement. Shingles that are losing their granules and shedding can usually be found when looking in your rain gutters. If you find granules in your gutters, this is a sure sign that your shingles need to be replaced.
Do you have cracked or buckled shingles?
Take a look around the perimeter of your home’s roof line and see if you can spot any cracked, broken or missing shingles. Broken or missing shingles can impact your roof’s ability to shed water and can eventually lead to roof leaks. If you see any spots on the roof with missing shingles or notice shingles on the ground after a storm or high winds and rain, this is a telling sign that you need your roof repaired or replaced.
Have you noticed bent, warped or buckled shingles?
After the fall and winter storms throughout Kennesaw and North Georgia, there is a good chance that high winds, hail, rain or ice damage could have compromised your roof’s ability to keep the structure underneath the shingles dry and free from moisture. Bent and buckled shingles are another good reason to have your roof inspected, repaired, or replaced.
Visual inspections are always a good place to start when assessing your roof during the change of seasons. It is always a good idea to try and detect any problems with your roof at an early stage before they possibly turn into major issues. But, not all roof damage is visible from the ground and can sometimes go unnoticed to the untrained eye.
The professionals at Platinum Roofing can inspect your shingles with boots on the roof and with video technology to assess every square foot of your roofing system.
Professional Roof Maintenance and inspection of the entire upper structure of your roof is key to a long service life, free of expensive repairs and damage to your home.
The Kennesaw, Alpharetta, Marietta, Canton, Milton and North Georgia area, all experienced winter storms and rain. So, now, during the Spring months, it is a particularly important time to have a professional inspect your roof.
If you’re still unsure if your roof is damaged or your roof is six years or older, we recommend contacting the professionals at Platinum Roofing. Our Platinum Roofing Team will come out to your home or business to inspect your residential or commercial roof and walk you through the entire process.
