With spring weather officially upon the Midwest, now is the time to assess the condition of your roof. Ensuring that your shingles and gutter system are in tip-top condition will prepare your roof for any incoming spring showers. Regularly inspecting your shingles and decking can also extend the life of your roof and help you avoid any costly repairs caused by unnoticed damage. Read on to learn three of the best things you can do for your roof during the spring.
Schedule a Roof Inspection
Depending on the overall height and pitch of your roof, having a clear view of every angle can typically be a hard thing to do from your yard. Accessing your roof is a dangerous job, so it’s best to leave that upward climb to a professional. Not only do professional roofers know how to properly navigate a roofing system, they also have the proper equipment to make the job efficient and safe.

Clear Your Roof of Debris
With the recent high winds the Midwest has experienced, debris of all kinds could have easily made its way onto your rooftop. Even though bird nests or other natural debris may seem harmless perched on your rooftop or gutters, it’s best to remove it. Natural debris can easily become lodged in your gutters and can cause water to not properly drain off of your roof. Water that cannot properly drain away from your shingles can back up into your decking and cause interior water damage.
Clean Your Gutters
If you have removed bird nests and other natural debris from your roof, you should also consider when the last time was you deep cleaned your gutter system. With spring showers hitting the Midwest, now is the time to be sure your gutters are clean.
The best practice is to inspect your gutters twice a year, once in the early spring and once in the early fall, to be sure they are clean. If you have a lot of mature trees on your property that shed leaves during the fall and you do not have gutter guards, you will definitely want to make inspecting your gutters a priority. Leaves can easily become compacted in your gutters causing extensive clogs.
