Your Checklist for Spring Roof Cleaning

Spring Roof CleaningWhen the spring comes, that’s the time to start your top-to-bottom home cleaning. And we mean that literally when we include the “top” because thorough cleaning and maintenance should include your home’s roof as well.


At Shelby Roofing & Exteriors, we are known for our skills in St. Louis residential roofing and have provided this checklist here so you can make sure your roof is in the best shape possible.


Your first step should be to inspect your roof visually. Look at the shingles and take note of missing, curled, blistered, or buckled shingles. Ones that are stained can also be indicative of a roof leak or damage to the roof’s ventilation system.


Make sure you are on the lookout for mold as well. It can quickly spread and damage your roof if not kept in check.


In addition to an external examination of your roof, it needs an internal checkup as well. Go into your attic and look for any sign of damage. Look for sources of light that indicate holes in the roof. You should also be on alert for water damage, mold, and mildew.


If you follow the steps on this checklist, your St. Louis residential roofing should be well-kept and maintained.
