We in North Carolina know all about the heat and summer preparation, like grabbing a towel and the sunscreen, but do you know how to prep your roof for summertime? Flores and Foley knows roofing in NC and would like to give you a few tips to make sure your roof is the last thing on your mind while you’re hanging out by the pool or at the beach this summer.
- Regular Roof Inspections: Homeowners are always recommended to walk around their house to check out their roof and make sure there are no missing shingles or possible areas of entry for weather. It is also a good idea to have a roofing professional look at your roof too, they might see something that you missed.
- Keeping a Clean Roof: Make sure there is no debris, such as leaves, twigs and pine needles, clumped together on the roof. Plant matter can create moisture, making it possible for mold and mildew to grow. If left untouched, debris could cause staining or even allow mildew to creep inside the attic areas.
- Check the Gutters: Ensure rainwater has a clear path to get off the roof. Check that the gutters and downspouts are clear of debris and any granule deposits and that the water is flowing properly to the ground.
- Hurricane Preparation: Taking care of your roof before a hurricane can help you lower your chances of damage during and after the storm. We will have more on hurricane preparation in June.
