After a really bad storm, it’s a lot more common than you think to see roofers knock on your door offering to sell you a Spring, TX roof replacement because they claimed to notice an issue with it while in the neighborhood. More often than not, these people are not legitimate roofers and, instead, are attempting to scam you. However, you should still get your roof checked after a storm, but this blog will discuss ways to check up on your roof on your own terms.
Check On Your Roof By First Checking Your Attic
Rather than immediately climbing onto your roof while it’s still slippery and dangerous, we recommend going into your attic right after a storm to see if there are any roof leaks. Roof leaks tend to stick around in the attic for some time before eventually making their way to a spot to flow through, which usually ends up being a corner in your ceiling or through a light fixture.
To determine if you have a leak, you should look for dripping water, puddles, staining along the walls, as well as damp insulation and then seek the appropriate Spring, TX roof repairs.
Perform Some Spring, TX Roof Maintenance
Once the storm has passed, our Spring, TX roofing company also recommends you grab a ladder and climb up so you are at the height of your gutters. From here, start with some roof maintenance by clearing the gutters of any leaves, twigs, or other debris. This will ensure proper drainage of water away from your roof so that it doesn’t settle and weigh down your roof shingles, as this will cause dipping and other Spring, TX roof damage that requires costly Spring, TX roof repairs.
