4 Spring Maintenance Tips for Roofing in New Hampshire

Roofing maintenance With a keen eye and a bit of elbow grease, it’s not difficult to keep your roofing in New Hampshire in great shape. Spring is an ideal time to do a roof inspection and some basic maintenance to take care of any damage that may have occurred over the course of the winter.

  1. Inspect the shingles. Carefully climb onto your roof and do a thorough inspection of your roofing system. Look for shingles that are missing, peeling or cracked – these will need to be repaired or replaced. A large amount of shingle granules in the gutters could be an indication that shingles are aging and need to be replaced.
  2. Check for loose flashing. Flashing prevents water from seeping underneath your shingles. Winter storms may cause flashing to pull away from vulnerable areas such as around chimneys and skylights, so it’s important that flashing is secure. Loose flashing can be tacked down and the tack holes sealed with roof cement.
  3. Check gutters and downspouts. Make sure your gutter system is flowing freely. If not, clean out leaves and other debris, then flush gutters with a garden hose. Check for loose or rusty sections of gutter.
  4. Inspect the attic. Look for signs of water, mold or stains that could indicate a leak. Pay special attention to areas around chimneys, skylights and vents that are susceptible to rot.

Regular roof inspections will prevent expensive repairs and potential health hazards. For assistance with repairs or advice about the condition of your roof, call AJC Roofing to schedule an inspection or obtain a FREE estimate for roof repair or replacement.
