Spring Cleaning: Don’t Forget Roof Repair

Roofing maintenance

As the weather in Colorado improves, you’re probably thinking about spring cleaning. Oftentimes, spring cleaning involves clearing your yard, staining your deck, and planting flowers, but what about roof repair? This spring, consider adding roof repair to your spring to-do list. 

Why Spring Roof Repair? 

Spring is a great time to make any repairs on your roof.  

Colorado’s winter weather, especially in the front range, can be harsh. Not only have we had record snowfall in some areas this winter, but the wind has also been a factor.  

As the weather warms up and your roof dries, a professional can fully inspect your roof and make recommendations for repairs. 

Weather-Related Repairs 

After rough winters, your roof can experience a variety of damages. 

Even a few bald spots, missing shingles, and dents from hail can cause harmful leaks. A professional inspection can spot these slight damages and make quick but effective repairs. Rather than letting these fester and face spring storms and potentially hail, let the experts fix your roof in the early spring. 

Additionally, living at a mile high exposes your roof to far more sun. Depending on the angle of your roof, how shaded your yard is, and the type of roofing material used, your roof may experience sun damage; this means your roof absorbs more heat, which can cause your roof to age faster.  

A professional roofing expert will access your roof, and be able to make any weather-related repairs or provide you with recommendations. 

Roof Repairs Increase Energy Efficiency 

Your roof plays a significant role in your home’s energy efficiency. 

Having a roof that’s working optimally means that your energy costs will be reduced, that your home will hold more heat or cold, depending on your preferences and the weather. 

Nothing is worse than having unpredictable energy costs. Instead, this spring, you can make sure your roof is functioning properly. If it isn’t for some reason, or has experienced significant damages and is aged, a new roof might be the difference between a high and very low energy bill for the year.  

Selling Your Home? 

Many homeowners put their homes on the market in the spring. If you’re one of those people, know that your roof’s condition and age will surely come up during purchase negotiations.  

If your roof is over 10 years old, chances are that you’ll need to replace the roof. Sometimes, styles have changed, and your house might be valued higher if your roof has a more updated look.  

These are excellent conversations to have with our professionals. We are happy to make recommendations that will be in your best interest prior to the home-selling process.
