Catching these minor issues early can save you thousands.
Inspect Shingles & Flashing
You could always call us to inspect your roof, but there are a number of quick items you can check yourself too.
Prevention is key when it comes to maintaining your roof
Shingles can become damaged from storms, water buildup, improper installation or previous repairs, heat, poor ventilation, and old age causing shingles to fall off or become warped and ineffective. Even just one shingle missing from your roof can cause water damage, mold and wood rot so it’s not something to leave unattended! If you notice any of the issues with your shingles above, schedule an appointment with a roofing contractor.
A little issue like a missing shingle can cause a lot of damage.
Clean Your Gutters
Your gutters are meant to help carry rainwater away from your roof and home. When they become clogged, water builds up and causes damage to your shingles, roof structure and even basement flooding. Grab your ladder and clean the gutters yourself or call a professional to come out and clean them for you.
Prevention is key when it comes to gutters make sure your gutters are getting cleared often
Old Age & Discoloration
Roofs typically last between 20-30 years, but if they are damaged or otherwise not maintained. Keeping up with an annual spring inspection will ensure you get the most out of your roof.
We’ll tell you if it’s time to have an old roof replaced, but one of the most common signs you can use to check yourself is shingle discoloration. Your roof is susceptible to sunlight, water, wind, snow and all kinds of weather related conditions that overtime will cause shingles to lose their original color, calling for a new roof.
