As Spring approaches, don’t forget to ensure that your roof system can take the potentially severe weather and high winds that are coming your way. Taking care of these simple roof inspection tasks can save you hundreds in repairs down the road.
Check Your Material
Inspect your roof material for signs of damage that can include broken and torn shingles, missing or thinning asphalt, cracks or cuts in your material, and even missing materials. These problems may seem small, but they can turn severe quickly and should be repaired as soon as possible.
While you’re on your roof checking your materials, inspect other components of your roof such as flashing and gutters. Flashing is a common location for leaks to develop, and faulty gutter can cause roof damage, flooding, and even foundation damage. Also, check the underlayment from inside your attic. This material can tear, leaving your home vulnerable to leaks.
Take a quick glance around your home to look for branches that hang over your roof or are falling down, random debris that can fly around during wind, and even troublesome power lines that could cause problems in the future. Taking care of these issues now could save you the hassle of roof damage and insurance claims later.
Keeping up with these simple activities can save you money, time, and hassle later on.
