Knowing about and understanding the most common issues that plague a residential roof can help you take care of your roof better. You’ll know what to look for so you’ll be able to spot problems early. In today’s article, Adamson Roofing Company, the top choice for roof inspections and repairs in our local area, discusses the most common reasons for roof repairs.
Gutter cleaning can be a tiring and unpleasant chore but it is one of the most important home maintenance tasks. If a homeowner leaves their gutters clogged and in poor condition, then their roof will most likely develop a leak in the future. Clogged and overflowing gutters can damage the roof, siding, foundation and more. Keep your gutters clear if you want to keep your roof in good shape.
As a roof repair and roof replacement expert, we strongly recommend keeping an eye on your roof flashing. These are the metal pieces underneath the shingles, the metal pieces that seal the roof gaps and the metal pieces that protect the area surrounding roof penetrations. Cracked or damaged flashing can easily cause roof leaks because they seal the gaps in your roofing system. Perform simple visual inspections of your roof every once in a while and call us for a roof inspection if you spot damaged flashing.
You can prevent most roofing issues, but you can’t prevent severe weather. Even the toughest and most durable roofs can get damaged by bad weather. The most you can do is to trim tree branches and keep plants away from your roof. Strong winds can send tree branches flying and crashing into the roof, so you should do your best to prevent that from happening.
