4 Common Roofing Problems in the Spring

Most people look forward to spring after a long bout with winter. But what they don’t look forward to is checking their own roof for signs of damage. However, you have to do it – especially if the recent season has been tough on your home. Checking the damage on your roof should be a permanent part of your spring-cleaning checklist. That way, you can avoid some of the common roofing problems in the spring.

Being proactive when it comes to your roof can save you lots of money in repairs. In addition, you may avoid the costly hassle of having it replaced too soon.

Here are the 4 Most Common Roofing Problems in the Spring

1. Damaged Shingles

Shingles can curl up and crack during cold temperatures, especially those that are located at the edge of your roof.

For that reason, spring would be the perfect time to inspect the roof for damaged shingles. And as soon as you know about them, also have them repaired or replaced by a professional roofing company.

2. Animal Nesting

If you have any dormant chimneys or loose flashings, clean them up and look for signs of animal life. These are convenient spots for wild animals such as birds, raccoons, and squirrels to hibernate during winter.

You may contact an animal control and removal service to remove them. Then, contact Chattanooga Roofing Company to inspect your roof. We can also repair any roof damage in order to prevent these animals from coming back.

3. Water Leaks

Of the common roofing problems in the spring, this one can make the biggest mess. Water leaks may go unnoticed during winter because of freezing temperatures. But once spring rolls around and you have a chance to inspect your attic, you may discover the problem. However, discovery won’t prevent further damage to an already vulnerable roofing system. That is, unless you ask a professional to repair the problem. A sure sign of a water leak is if you see water stains on your ceiling or walls.

4. Membrane Separation

Moisture and dropping temperatures can take their toll on your roofing membrane, causing it to loosen up or peel away.

The membrane holds the pieces of your roofing system together. For that reason, it’s a vital component. Contact us to assess your roof integrity and discover if your roof membrane is still functioning as it should be.
