Spring Roof Inspections by Your Denver Roofing Experts


May 4, 2016

It's finally spring, and that means an assessment is due to see how well your roof weathered the Denver winter. Now that some of the worst weather is over, it's a good time to call in a roofing crew so they can take a look to see if there's anything that needs immediate attention. The most common Denver roofing problems to watch for are those small ones that go undetected until it's too late to prevent damage. We believe in taking care of those little spring roofing issues before they turn into serious, expensive roofing problems.

Start your spring roof maintenance and inspection from the ground. Take a look at the roof and walk around to look at the gutters. Are there any loose or missing shingles? Do you see water stains that indicate gutters have been overflowing? Any flashing out of place? Do the gutters look clogged?

You will want to inspect the roof itself and that means getting on top of your house. Don’t risk your safety on a ladder and on your roof. Please call Big Creek Roofing to do this for you. We will get up on your roof and walk around, inspect any damage close up, and form an exact plan of what will be needed to get your roof back in tiptop shape.

Spring is a great time to get your gutters cleaned, and we can take care of that for you as well. We will make sure to notice any holes, cracks, and other signs of wear and tear on your gutters to ensure that your drainage is in prime condition. Poor gutters can lead to pooling water around your foundation, which is a recipe for disaster. Clogged gutters and downspouts can also allow water to back up and seep into the eaves, eventually causing rot.

While we're on your roof, we will check carefully around all pipes, chimneys and vents to make sure the flashing is securely fastened. We will also check for any signs of leakage. If you have a leak, you might not have noticed any leakage indoors yet, but it could cause problems with the structure of your roof. If left unrepaired, it can become a huge problem later.
