5 Spring Roof Maintenance Tips

  3. Check for Cracked or Missing Shingles- Changing temperatures can lead to structural damage of certain shingles that can lead to internal leaks or further roof damage.
  4. Cut Back Trees- Before leaves grow back fully, spring is there perfect time to cut back trees or other foliage that have begun to encroach upon your property. Preventative maintenance can reduce the amount of gutter cleaning you have to do throughout the year and increase the longevity of your roof
