Understanding Atlanta's Climate

Atlanta experiences a moderate climate with hot, humid summers and mild winters. However, spring brings about an increase in rainfall and a higher likelihood of severe weather events such as thunderstorms, high winds, and even tornadoes. The average annual rainfall in Atlanta is around 50 inches, with the spring months typically seeing a significant portion of this precipitation.

Preventing Damage and Spring Maintenance Tips

Inspection & Maintenance- Before the onset of spring storms, schedule a professional inspection of your roof. Our team can identify any concerns, including loose or missing shingles, damaged flashing, or clogged gutters. Addressing these issues promptly can prevent them from worsening during heavy rainfall or high winds.

Reinforcement- You may want to consider reinforcing your roof if you live in an area prone to severe weather. This could involve installing hurricane straps or clips to strengthen the connection between your roof and the walls of your home, making it more resistant to strong winds.

Tree Maintenance- Overhanging branches can pose a serious threat to your roof during storms. Trim any branches that overhang your roof to prevent them from causing damage if they break off during high winds, and be sure to remove dead branches from trees across your property.

Our team at United Contracting & Roofing can assess your roof and advise you on improvements and repairs as part of our complimentary inspection. If you haven’t had your roof inspected in a year or more, feel free to give us a call and schedule a visit from one of our professional roofing inspectors.
