Look For Damage

Start by conducting a thorough inspection of your roof. Look for any signs of damage, such as missing or cracked shingles, loose flashing, or damaged gutters. Check for any signs of water leakage or sagging areas. Identifying and addressing these issues early on can prevent them from escalating into more significant problems.

Clean Your Gutters

Clogged gutters can cause water to back up and overflow, leading to potential water damage to your roof and home’s foundation. Remove any dirt, leaves, and twigs from the gutters and downspouts.

Remove Any Debris

Clear any accumulated debris, such as leaves, branches, or dirt, from your roof’s surface that can trap moisture and promote the growth of algae or moss. Use a soft-bristle broom or a leaf blower to gently remove the debris. Avoid using pressure washers, as they can damage the shingles.
