Is there a perfect time of the year to get your roof cleaned? Every home has different needs and may need more or less cleaning than others. Here are a few tips to decide when is the best time to clean your roof.
Even if your roof looks clean and you’re not experiencing any problems, it’s recommended to get annual roof inspections to make sure your roof is ready to protect your home against various weather conditions. The best time to get your roof inspected is before a particularly stressful season. Consider what months of the year have harsher weather conditions, such as a blizzardy winter, a heavily-rainy spring, etc. These extreme conditions are exactly what your roof was designed to combat; it’s crucial to make sure your roof is ready!
Another opportunity to get your roof cleaned is simply when your roof like it needs some care! When you see large, overhanging branches over your home, don’t delay in getting them trimmed back. Or if there are large piles of leaves and pine needle stuck in the valleys of your roof, it’s time to get them removed. Not only will this improve the curb appeal to your home, but it also prevents your shingles from deteriorating under the debris.
Homeowners often forget that their gutter system is a crucial part of their roof! You’ll want to ensure that your gutters are clear of debris before fall ends and winter starts. Any blockage will prevent water from being able to flow away from your roof and could potentially cause major damage. If you live in a region with freezing rain or snow, this could cause ice dams within your gutter system and cause them to crack, split, or even rip away from your home. It’s also a good idea to check on your gutter system once winter is over.
