Spring Maintenance: Keeping Your Home in Tip-Top ShapeFeb 25, 2015
Winter can be hard on your home. It can result in a number of issues that are sometimes difficult to detect. As its intensity slowly decreases, have you set aside some time to check your windows, siding, and roofing in Crown Point IN? These components of your home take most of the beating from harsh weather. If you haven’t started on your spring maintenance plan, now would be the best time. Don’t underestimate the power of spring cleaning—simple practices can go a long way. You might be thanking yourself later for actually getting started on that maintenance checklist of yours.
While you’re at it, we at Rogers Roofing have some upkeep ideas:
Back when winter was in full swing up to this point, regular inspections should’ve been conducted. The most effective maintenance plans are those that are consistently done. For your roof, we do not recommend physically climbing up there since it’s too dangerous. Simply use a pair of binoculars and inspect your roof as far as your sight would allow. Check if there are any broken spots in your shingles and if there are other damaged parts in your roof as a whole.
Another crucial part of your home is your siding structure. When checking your exterior, make sure you take a close look around your house. Check if there are any chipping paint, cracking on the walls, and leaking. Some weather-inflicted damage can still be repaired, but in case you’ll need new siding, don’t hesitate to do the best thing: Call us here at Rogers Roofing. We have vinyl siding from CertainTeed and fiber cement from James Hardie®, currently the best brands and products available.
Your windows in Hammond IN should also be checked for any damage. Inspect all locks, hinges, glass, and frames for any problems. Apart from the obvious window damage, look for condensation issues and air or water penetration. Chances are, you could be wasting a lot of energy and overworking your heating system because of faulty windows. If you have been spending a lot of money on repairs in the past, it might be wiser to replace your old windows. Not only will it be more cost-effective, but it’s also an energy-efficient choice that will help you save more in the long run.
Hopefully, we were able to provide helpful upkeep ideas this spring. If your home has suffered great damage from major storms this winter, we can assist you with complete roof inspections and insurance claims. If you want to protect your exterior better, we suggest installing a gutter protection system. We offer Leaf Relief, one of the premier gutter-reinforcement products in the market. It will greatly lessen your need for gutter cleaning. It also does a great job in directing water away from your structure.
