Pearland Roof Maintenance for Spring
This week’s severe storms has prompted many area homeowners to consider the condition of their roofs. And the older the roof, the more likely it is to sustain serious roof damage. When this occurs, you could be looking at costly repairs or the need for a Pearland roof replacement. Thankfully, you can prolong the life of your Pearland roofing with a few simple maintenance measures, which will ensure it's able to properly protect your home when the next storm rolls through.
Our Houston Roofer Experts’ Roof Maintenance Tips
Here are some ways you can keep your Pearland roofing in good shape this spring:
Clean Your Gutters Regularly
While autumn is the season most often associated with clogged gutters thanks to falling leaves, spring pollen, especially oak pollen, is known to clog gutters as well. When this occurs, rain cannot be properly diverted from your roof when it rains, waterlogging your shingles and weakening their ability to protect your home.
When you clean your gutters, look for evidence of shingle granules, as these signal the need for a Pearland roof replacement, as your shingles are deteriorating rapidly and are no longer strong enough to protect your home.
Trim Overhanging Branches
If you have tree branches that are hanging over your roof, your Pearland roofing could be at risk for serious damage. All it takes is one strong storm for that branch to crash down onto your roof, causing potentially irreperable Pearland roof damage. Don’t try to do this job yourself, however, as you could end up doing more harm than good if the branch is not removed properly. Hire a professional arborist or tree trimmer instead.
Remove Moss Growth
Moss growth indicates moisture build-up, which is never a good sign for your Pearland roofing. The underlying cause of the moss growth is something you’ll want to determine as quickly as possible before additional damage occurs. You also want to carefully clean moss or algae growth from your shingles using a specialized cleaning solution that is designed for this purpose and can be found in most hardware stores.
