The spring season has arrived in Marietta, bringing with it the possibility of severe weather. Warm weather and blossoming trees arrive along with dangers like strong gusts and torrential rain.

The weather in the coming months will be a mixed bag, so it’s a good idea to prepare your home for the worst. Because your roof is one of the most crucial structural elements of your home, you should begin here as you make preparations.

In addition to these springtime weather risks, extensive water damage can also be brought on by roof leaks, damage and neglect. By starting at the top, you can protect your entire Marietta home from various forms of roof-related water damage.

Prepare for a Severe Spring

Spring tends to bring some harsh weather to Marietta, and when it does, it might come out of nowhere and catch you by surprise. Tornadoes are a fairly prevalent threat, and you may have witnessed them wreaking havoc in our area before spring even arrived.

Tornadoes can expose homes and businesses to the consequences of significant wind damage, with roofs being a common target. Shingles can be ripped off, tree limbs can fall and if the weather is extreme enough, your entire roof can be ripped off your house! Damage like this can send water damage straight into your home when the spring showers start to pour.

Keep Things in Check

The types of damage outlined above can be frightening to think about, but as long as your roof isn’t too old and you work hard to keep things maintained, you can prevent utter disaster during the spring season.

Your gutters are an easy place to start as you work to prevent water from seeping in via your roof. Climb up and inspect your gutters and downspouts to ensure they are clear of debris and have not become detached during a prior storm.

Keep your roof strong and secure by searching for signs of wear and tear like loose shingles, attic issues, damaged seals and mold growth. Trim any loose or overhanging branches that hang over your roof to avoid a future roof disaster.

Make an effort to complete these duties on a monthly basis or at the very least after any severe weather event, especially during the spring months. This can help you prevent damage before it worsens, prepare for future storms and detect leaks before they become a problem.

Watch Out for Leaks

Along with keeping a constant eye on your roof for damage, it’s equally important to regularly search for leaks inside your roof and attic. Leaks hidden in your roof can quickly worsen before you can avert them, causing damage throughout your entire home.

Look for wet spots, discoloration and a musty odor in your ceiling and attic to help you locate any existing leaks. It can also help to get up on your roof and look for any openings, cracks or gaps to see if there are any places where water is getting in.

Even if you don’t have any leaks present, excess moisture during the spring season can get trapped in your attic and lead to serious mold growth. Be sure to supply your attic with proper ventilation so mold growth won’t even be in the equation if you wind up with a springtime leak.
