Now that the snow is melting away, you can start to think about all the repairs and renovations your home might need, come spring. Hopefully you caught our last blog (see link at bottom of page) regarding melting snow and roof inspections. It is important to start looking for small or minor damages now, before they can get worse, so be sure to read up and learn what you need to look for right now in terms of damage.
Continue below to learn some of the recommended roof and siding services you should consider scheduling as soon as spring arrives.
The fundamental roofing service you need to schedule is an inspection. The purpose of a roof inspection is to assess and determine the structural integrity of the roof. This service is also meant to catch any small problems early on, before they can become large, costly repairs. Hire a licensed and insured roofing company in Indianapolis for a comprehensive, full-property inspection that you can trust is accurate. They will look for water leaks and water damage, as well as, cracked or missing shingles, openings, organic growth (mold, mildew, fungi, etc.), wildlife tampering or damage, gaps and openings, and similar vulnerabilities. They will also fully-inspect all roof components, such as attic insulation, vents, flashings, turbines, skylights, and more.
Keep in mind that it is not always necessary to climb a roof during an inspection. Instead, most roofing contractors have sophisticated procedures, technologies, and equipment that allows them to facilitate accurate assessments. This includes infrared technology, which allows contractors to make their assessments without ever having to make physical contact with the roof. These infrared assessments show the differentiating temperature levels of a roof, in which high temperatures are common indications of air and heat escape.
The best way to avoid premature siding deterioration or siding damage is to implement the necessary routine maintenance needed to support its durability, and ultimately, its longevity. Just like your roofing system, siding systems require routine inspection and minor repairs on an annual basis. Start by hiring a qualified contractor for the job. They will look at all aspects of your siding system, including the gutters and downspouts.
They will also assess the condition of the siding’s paint, insulation, heat transfer properties, water resistance, and more. Your appointed contractor may recommend to have your siding cleaned. You can do this professionally, or yourself, depending on your budget, supplies on hand, and overall comfort with the project.
