Although normal winter weather concerns such as snow and ice are rarely a concern here in Orlando, FL, an annual spring clean-up is a great opportunity to inspect your roof for any damages or maintenance needs. In addition to giving your home and roof a fresh, clean look, cleaning and performing an inspection on your roof at least annually can benefit the longevity of your roof. Weathershield Roofing Group‘s contractors can inspect and repair your roof in the Orlando, FL area.
Steps to Cleaning, Inspecting, and Maintaining Your Roof
- Clear Roof of Debris: Take care to remove leaves, moss, and miscellaneous debris that might have been collecting on your roof these past few months. Additionally, you should ensure that none of your tree limbs touch your roof, and trim or remove limbs that do.
- Address Mold and Fungus: Roofs in humid Florida are particularly susceptible to mold, algae, and fungus, so you should make sure that your roof is free from these problems. Physical signs of mold include discolored areas among your roof. By leaving mold, algae, or fungus untreated, they can eat away at and penetrate your roof, resulting in the need for a replacement. Our skilled contractors can advise you on how to kill the mold and protect your roof.
- Replace Missing or Worn Shingles: If your roof shingles are cracked, split, curled, or completely missing, replacing them will strengthen your entire roof. Our contracts can inspect your roof and determine which shingles need to be replaced.
