How to Prepare Your Roof For Summer

After a long, cold winter, we know you are ready for summer! The question is, is your roof ready? While you picture summer as a reprieve from difficult weather conditions, that is not always the case for your roof. Your home no longer has to deal with snow and ice, but instead comes pounding rain, scorching heat, and intense sunlight.

Your roof is the most important asset to keep your home and everybody in it safe. Proper roof installation services and regular maintenance are crucial protecting you and your family from outside elements. Romero Roofing & Siding is celebrating 20 years of reliable exterior services for homeowners. While we offer the most durable roof installation services, it is still necessary to perform routine maintenance on your roof, especially as we switch seasons. Our team of expert contractors has put together a list of helpful tips to ensure your roof is in the best shape possible and ready for the summer so that you can enjoy the warm weather worry-free.

Inspect Your Roof 

The first thing you should do is fully inspect your roof. Check for any signs of damage or areas of concern left from the winter. Be sure to look for any shingles or tiles that are missing or appear damaged or loose. When shingles are cracked or loosened during the winter, the summer heat will cause them to curl. Sometimes these problems are easy to fix, but other times they may need to be professionally repaired to avoid the risk of leaks and further damage.

Clean The Gutters

If you have not cleaned the gutters yet, do that before the rainfall season begins. If your gutters are clogged with leaves and other debris when the rainfall hits, water cannot flow through and will overflow and run down the side of your house. This can cause serious problems, including water leaks and flooding in your basement. Call Romero Roofing & Siding for professional gutter cleaning services to prevent clogging and expensive damage. 

Clear Surrounding Foliage 

You will likely need to schedule frequent gutter cleaning services if you have a lot of trees and other foliage surrounding your home. A simple way to help protect your roof is trimming back branches, leaves, and other foliage that can clog your gutters or give critters easy access to climb onto your roof.

Check Insulation 

Not only is it important to inspect the outside of your roof, but you should also check the inside. Make sure that your roof is properly insulated to keep your home cool during the summer heat. If cool air can get out, or hot air can get in, you will pay much more for your utility bills than you should.
