Your home’s main defense against weather extremes and elements is the roof and siding. Routine maintenance and immediate repairs can lengthen the lifespan of your roof.
That’s why it’s important to know the most vulnerable areas of your roof and how you can keep them in good shape.
Exterior Roof Structure & Surface
The exterior roof structure is comprised of the components that keep your roof standing. They are prone to unevenness and sagging. The roof surface includes the shingles, nails, flashing and fasteners. Look for popped nails, loose shingles, loose fasteners or unsecured flashing.
Immediately get in touch with your roofing contractor to get them fixed. These roofing issues can turn into costly repairs when ignored.
What You Can Check From Your Interior
Inspecting your attic can alert you to roofing problems. Check the space for damaged wood, rusted nails, water stains and mold. All of those are signs of possible structural damage and can even cause health problems for the household members.
Look at the ceiling below the attic for any signs of leaks or ventilation issues. Water damage on your ceiling could also indicate damaged insulation.
Why Roof Inspections Are Important
Major roofing problems can be prevented with regular roof inspections. Investing in routine maintenance would benefit you in the long run and maximize the life of your roofing system. It can also improve your home’s protection and energy efficiency.
