3 Roofing Problems to Look Out for This Spring

As the spring draws near and the days get longer, you can finally relax knowing that your roofing has survived another winter in Myrtle Beach! However, that doesn’t mean that spring doesn’t come with its own set of threats for residential and commercial roofing – it does! Since roofs are recovering from winter conditions and spring is such a rainy season, this is a vital time to ensure your roof is in the best condition possible. Our team at Carolina Custom Contractors has come up with the top three problems to look out for this spring!

Trapped Moisture Damage

When spring arrives, so does a lot of new plant growth. Add that on top of the leftover debris from the past fall and winter which can create heavy matted debris. If you don’t remove all the debris, water can become trapped and it can cause your roof to become low-sloping. It’s no surprise that moisture damage is among the top roofing issues that happen in the spring.

Damaged Underlayment and Membranes

The layer under your shingles is there to protect against moisture but, after long periods of rain and changing temperatures moisture damage can happen. If you notice any leaks in your home, it’s essential to get it repaired right away, so you eliminate the risk of insects and pests getting to your home’s structure and insulation.

Clogged or Damaged Gutters

Many homeowners wait until spring to clean the leaves and other debris from their gutters. This can result in them finding their gutter system rusted or sagging. It’s always best to clean out the leaves and debris from your gutters sooner rather than later. If you’ve run across this problem, don’t hesitate to give our local contracting team a call!
