Check For Leaks
Check for leaks before they happen. Even minor roof leaks that go unnoticed can become a big problem when a major weather event or storm hits. To detect leaks, look on interior walls and ceilings for stains and water damage that indicate a leak occurred. Also, take a flashlight into the attic during the next rainstorm and check for leaks on the underside of the roof deck and rafters.
Keep Maintenance Up To Date
Do preventive maintenance. Contact a professional roofing contractor to inspect your roof, and make needed repairs to flashing, caulking and shingles before the winter or storm season arrives. Most leaks occur where roofs meet sidewalls and around penetrations such as skylights, vent pipes and chimneys. Missing or broken shingles can be individually replaced, and loose shingle tabs can be re-adhered with an application of asphalt roofing cement.
If your home needs roof repair. Don’t delay until after the winter or storm season. The cost of replacing a roof is only a fraction of the potential loss that could result to a home’s interior, furnishings and possessions.
Keep Nature In Check
Keep nature in check. Fallen tree branches or those that scrape against a roof can cause significant damage. Cut back large branches extending over roofs, and have a professional inspect your yard for trees that should be removed altogether. Also, clean out gutters and roof valleys clogged with leaves, branches or litter. Clogs can prevent water from draining properly.
