Roof inspection should be a top priority on your home maintenance list. You can prevent costly damage by having leaks detected early. Regular visual inspections from the ground can be done by you. For a more detailed inspection, contact Arry’s roofing if you spot any issues. For a professional inspection, we recommend calling us at least twice per year, especially before and after winter. These are the areas of your roof that you should pay attention to:
Shingles for Roofing
A problem with ventilation is usually indicated by buckling or curling of roofing shingles. Hot, humid air can build up in your attic and heat the underside of roofing shingles. This can cause them to curl up or buckle, making it easier for water to leak through. Also, be aware of dark spots on your roof caused by missing shingles. This leaves the underlayment vulnerable to the elements.
Your roofing gutters are an essential component and help keep your home dry and free from damage. They can become clogged easily with debris. Water can seep through the roof and back onto your roof. Water can pool around the foundation of your home and cause damage. To prevent any clogging or other damage, it is important to clean your gutters at the least twice per year. You can also invest in a gutter protection kit to keep your gutters clear throughout the year.
Flashing refers to the metal strip used to protect your roof against water infiltration. Flashing is typically installed at junctions or intersections such as valleys, chimneys, vents, and chimneys. These are the areas where water pools on your roof. It’s important that you inspect them for cracks or rust spots. It is also important to check if the sealant shrinks around its edges.
