Seasonal maintenance is critical to keeping your home in tip-top shape. Roof maintenance is just as important because it’s your home’s first line of defense against the elements. That’s why spring is an excellent time to schedule a roof inspection to ensure any minor problems don’t turn into much bigger, more expensive ones down the road. That’s why Pacific Home & Patio would like to provide you with the following key reasons why an annual spring roof inspection in Boise, Idaho is necessary when it comes to keeping your home’s roof in good condition.
Winter Damage Requires Timely Repairs
During the winter, structural damage, leaks, and rot can develop due to the accumulation of snow and ice dams, heavy winds, sleet, or hail. During this time, it can be difficult to determine whether your roof has become damaged or if there’s any cause for concern.
In the spring, the contractor at Pacific Home & Patio can better identify any potential problems that require timely repairs that can worsen over time. For example, if an ice dam formed over the winter, it may have allowed water to seep under your roof tiles and flashing, causing an unwanted leak, resulting in water damage.
Spring is an Ideal Time Schedule & Make Repairs
One of the reasons roof repairs aren’t typically done during the winter is because of the low temperatures and bad weather that make it difficult. Instead, spring brings with it better weather conditions that enable a roofing contractor to conduct a safe, more efficient inspection of your roof and gutter systems. Furthermore, many repairs require a specific temperature to properly seal the affected area.
Last but not least, summer is one of the busiest times to schedule a roof inspection with roofing companies throughout the Treasure Valley. This can make it difficult to have someone come out to inspect or repair your roof during this time. That’s why the contractor at Pacific Home & Pato recommends scheduling a seasonal inspection and maintenance early since schedules can book up quickly.
Annual Inspections Extend the Lifespan of Your Roof
Spring inspections and maintenance lower energy bills that tend to creep up over the summer months by remediating any opportunities for treated air to escape or unwanted elements to get in. The contractor at Pacific Home & Patio will replace any missing or damaged shingles while identifying and repairing any other issues that may otherwise go undetected. An annual inspection of the shingles, flashing, and gutter systems ensure a waterproof roofing system that will function properly in time for spring rains, reducing the risk of water damage in the process.
Many other home systems require regular inspections and maintenance and your roofing system is no different. Small repairs here and there will not only extend the lifespan of your roof but protect the investment of your home.
