Your roof no doubt helped keep your home warm through the winter by bearing the brunt of the cold. Check if there are any missing or damaged shingles. If you find any, make sure to check inside the house for evidence of leaks. When examining the roof, it’s best that you don’t step on it due to the possibility of structural damage. Instead, we can send in a contractor when you schedule an inspection.
The Walls and Siding
Your walls might have taken a beating from the cold months. Check them for any damage, particularly under gutter downspouts. There might be stains, which could mean your roof isn’t doing a good enough job allowing water to run off it.
