Spring is on its way, which means now is the time to start making your checklist for spring cleaning your roof. Every spring, a few hours of your weekend is all it takes to help ensure your roofing lasts for a few more years. Here are three things that should be on your spring cleaning roof checklist.

First of all, you need to clear off any visibly noticeable debris on your roof. If you have a low roof, you may be able to handle this task on your own. Otherwise, it may be a better idea to let a professional roofing company handle the task. Pine needles and branches are common offenders.

Second, you should examine your roof for loose shingles, any areas where the gutter may be coming detached, and broken or bent flashing. All of these things can diminish the capability of your roof to properly insulate your home and are cheaper to repair than replace if noticed soon enough. In addition, make sure to peek in your gutters and clean them out if necessary.

Third, you should inspect your roof for signs of mold and mildew. If you notice either, you need to contact a professional roofing company to remove them. Do not attempt to do this on your own, as the wrong chemicals or pressure can actually compromise the quality of your roofing. In addition, you need to minimize walking on the roof to help preserve it (plus minimize personal risk).

Now is a great time to call a Houston roofing contractor to get on their spring cleaning list in March. CM Roofing is happy to schedule an appointment for you now.
