We’re a few weeks into spring, have you scheduled your spring roof inspection, yet? An annual roof inspection is a simple yet effective way to stay on top of your roof’s health. Early spring and late fall are two of the best times to get a roof inspection.

If you didn’t get a chance to inspect your roof before last winter, now is an opportune time to get your roof checked out. We don’t get too much snow or ice dams around here, but making sure your roof survived the cooler season and is ready for the warmer seasons is always ideal.

Don’t Put Off Your Roof Care!

In the spring cleaning mood? As part of general roofing maintenance, it’s always a good idea to clean your roof and gutter systems, as well. We know it’s not always easy to prioritize your roof when everything seems to be working, but even just setting aside an hour a week to tackle a small part of your roof care can extend the life of your roof.

In addition to scheduling your spring roof inspection, here are a few articles so that you can stay on top of your roof’s care without breaking a sweat.

Homeowners can partially evaluate their own roof by going to the attic and checking for signs of moisture.  However, we never recommend our customers or any homeowners climb their own roof to inspect it. Roof damage is often undetectable from the ground or with the untrained eye, so it’s best to leave the roof inspecting to a roofing professional. We have the training and safety equipment needed to thoroughly evaluate your roof.

If you suspect something is not quite right with your roof, give our team a call today. We will thoroughly assess your view and provide you with the most cost-effective advice to ensure a safe and reliable roof.

Clogged Gutters Can Damage Your Home

Clogged Gutters Can Damage Your Home | IBEX Roof

It’s a given that debris can end up in your gutters and we all know it’s about that time of year to clean them out. However, did you know that putting this task off can actually risk damage to the rest of your home? Gutters play an important part in protecting your roof by shedding water away from your home. So when your gutters are clogged, it could lead to bad news if not taken care of soon.

Pooling Water

When water cannot properly shed from your roof, it’s possible it can pool at the edge of your roof. If your roof has existing cracks and damage, this could lead to a bad water leak. But even if your roof is in good shape, excessive standing water can damage the foundation of your roof. This will lead to wood rot and you will need to replace the wood underneath your shingles sooner than later. Depending on how much water sits at the end of your roof, it could also seep into your foundation, causing foundation problems.

Foundation Problems

It’s likely your gutters are not fully clogged all the way through. In fact, some areas might have more debris than others. When this happens, water ends up overflowing and splashing your home in the same areas. This could lead to flooding and other structural damage to your home’s foundation.

Gutter Damage

Another common way clogged gutters can affect your roof is by damaging the gutters themselves. When you don’t clear away the debris from your gutters, the extra weight of debris plus the weight of rainwater can cause your gutters to split, crack, or even rip away from your home. In a worst-case scenario, the water stuck in your gutters will freeze in cold weather and really damage your gutters.
