While decluttering your home and cleaning out the garage are great places to start on your spring cleaning list, but your roof also needs a little extra love this season. Here us this checklist to maintain your roof in excellent shape.

Long branches can scratch, damage or even completely remove roofing materials. Trim any extended branches that are encroaching your roof.

A healthy roof starts on the inside. Inspect your attic for any stains or leaks that may have surfaced over the winter.
