How to Get Your Roof Ready for April Showers

It is no secret that Texas weather can be all over the place. One minute it is sunny, and the next there is a downpour. Spring is right around the corner, and it is not too late to prep your roof for the upcoming rainy weather. We are going to share some things you can do to get your roof ready for DFW’s rainy season. If you are a homeowner in the Dallas or Fort Worth area, Griffith Roofing can get your roof more ready than ever to stand up to springtime storms. Griffith has your weather worries covered!

Unclog Your Gutters

During the winter, leaves and debris fall onto your roof. Because there is a lack of rainfall, that debris has a hard time properly rinsing down your gutters and drainage system. Your gutters will likely form clogs from this buildup, and that will prevent rainwater from draining once it starts to pile on your roof. This can lead to serious problems like leaks or burst gutters. To prevent this, make sure your gutters are cleared of all winter debris buildup.

Repair Missing Shingles

The lack of moisture in winter can also dry up some of your roofing material. Once asphalt loses enough moisture, it can lose its hold, which allows shingles to break off and parts of your roof to be exposed directly to the elements. The lack of shingles can lead to water damage and other issues such as internal leaks. Griffith Roofing offers repairs for all kinds of damage.

Have a Professional Inspection

We have to face the facts: an untrained eye will miss certain details. Hiring roofing professionals to conduct an inspection is the most foolproof way to ensure every small issue is discovered. A roofing professional will also be able to offer guidance on how to go about fixing any damage. Whether this means performing a small repair or a full roof replacement, it is better to know sooner rather than later.

Get Rid of Unwelcomed Guests

As adorable as they might be, furry friends should not be residing on top of your roof. They can cause damage to roofing materials, find their way into your home and potentially hurt themselves with the rough surfaces! Nests should be removed carefully and safely, without disturbing the animals.

Spring will be hitting North Texas very soon, so it is important to take measures to get your home ready for the impending rainfall. Making sure your roof and gutters are free of debris, leaves, and animal nests is very important to keep water flowing away from your roof.
