Keeping your roof in tip-top shape is not always a walk in the park, especially with the number of threats – whether from nature or man-made errors, that loom over it. Today, we discuss four common roofing concerns.
- Roof Leaks
Leaks are no doubt the most common roofing issue most homeowners face. Leaks can occur anywhere along the roof even when your shingles are in relatively excellent condition. Check your attic or crawl space for leaks every once in a while so a trusted roofer can carry out repairs and clean up in time.
- Improperly Installed Flashing
Flashing is the material that seals vulnerable areas on the roof, such as around vents, pipes and chimneys. When flashing is poorly attached, it can leave seams and cause tiles to break off. Make sure to hire an experienced roof installation company to replace or inspect your roof to prevent issues that are due to improperly installed or damaged flashing.
- Tree Branches
Tall, overhanging trees can rub against the surface of your roof and cause scratches, dents and even punctures when there are high-speed winds. If you have trees surrounding your roof, it will be best to trim them back to minimize damage.
- Lack of Maintenance
While it is ideal to schedule an inspection with a roofer once a year, it is also important to call for an inspection after a severe storm event. This is to detect storm-related damage, such as blown-off shingles and torn gutters, before they introduce bigger, more costly problems down the road.
