Common Spring Roof Repair Needs in Salt Lake City

March 21, 2024

In our last blog post, we talked about routine maintenance to prepare your roof for spring. Now that you know what to do on the maintenance end of things, we can turn to repair. Spring is the perfect time to address roof repair in Salt Lake City now that the weather is milder and the summer heat hasn’t set in yet. Our team at Patriot Roofing is here to ensure your roof stays in prime condition to protect your home and family year-round.


Let’s take a look at some of the most common roof repair tasks in Salt Lake City that we tackle in the spring.


Fixing Shingle Damage

If you found any loose, broken, or missing shingles when you inspected your roof, now is the time to replace them. Damaged or missing shingles compromise your roof and can lead to leaks and other problems. Replacing them prevents water from penetrating your roof and causing water damage inside your house.


Sealing Leaks

Spring showers can reveal hidden leaks. If your leak inspection turned anything up, you’ll want to bring in professional roofers to address the issue. The source of a leak isn’t always obvious. Water can run down the roof and make its way in some distance from the actual leak. Roofing pros know how to trace the leak and repair it to avoid future problems.


Repairing Flashing

Check the flashing around chimneys, vents, and skylights for wear and tear. Damaged flashing can lead to leaks, so ensure it is in good condition. If you have to repair or replace flashing, that can affect the roofing materials around it, so you have to be careful not to cause any additional damage.


Inspecting for Mold and Mildew

The moisture from winter weather can lead to mold and mildew growth. If you find any signs of mold or mildew, clean it immediately. Mold and mildew affect the air quality in your home and can lead to health problems. Ensure your roof receives adequate sunlight so it can dry out after wet weather.
