How would your vehicle run if the oil was never changed? Would the AC unit in your home remain at its peak to work if the filter was never changed? The roof of your home is no different than most other systems: it demands routine maintenance with a Grapevine roofing contractor to produce the best possible protection.
However, most homeowners do not complete regular maintenance tasks. Even worse, many do not arrange seasonal roof inspections.
Frequently, homeowners contact us because their roof has a leak and they are surprised to hear that the damage (and restoration bill!) could have been averted.
How can an expensive roof leak be avoided? It is easy, make frequent roof inspections and watch out for indications of damage. Here are five suggestions to help get you started!
1. Don’t Forget to Look Up!
Countless homeowners are oblivious of roof damage solely because they do not take the time to look up at their roof. If you detect any missing shingles, revealed nail heads or shingles rising up out of place, it means your roof needs attention! Make sure you call a Dallas roof repair pro when you detect any of these warning signals. The longer you delay, the more costly repair bills will be.
2. Storm Damage?
Powerful winds and hail put a lot of stress on your roofing system. Damage is not always visible from the ground with the naked eye, which is why you should have it professionally inspected after each and every significant weather event.
3. DO NOT Forget Your Gutters!
The gutter system on your home is there to efficiently direct water away, but if they are clogged with debris they can cause water to splash back onto your roof, on the siding, and into the foundation. Ensuring that they are free of debris and in good working shape is vital for the health of your home and should also be checked seasonally.
4. Seasonal Roof Examinations
Your roof is exposed to the changing weather and elements each day, and while it is created to resist the harsh weather conditions, it is not unusual for some components to deteriorate over time. Broken skylights, pipes, vents, and flashing are some of the things that can cause trouble for your entire roofing system if little problems are not approached. Conducting seasonal roof and home examinations will limit these small problems from becoming high-priced repairs!
5. What is Lurking up in Your Attic?
Your attic is a crucial component to your roofing system! Deficient ventilation and insulation frequently lead to moisture and mold formation. Additionally, bugs and other critters will frequently invade attics, particularly during the winter. A professional roof examination with a Dallas roofer is by far one of the simplest ways to assure your attic is all good!
