As winter quickly approaches here in New Jersey, many homeowners with doubts as to their roof's condition should contact a qualified roofing contractor for a roofing inspection as well as the proper roof repairs. A roofing inspection should be noted as preventive roof maintenance that will save you money in the long run - if an area of your roof is deemed as in need of repairs, you will prevent further damage from impacting the rest of your roof as well as the interior of your home.
Fall Roofing Maintenance and Inspections
Winter brings various elements that can further damage your existing roof and cause minor fixes to turn into major emergency roofing repairs. High winds, large amounts of snow, as well as the occurrence of heavy rains when fronts merge can wreck havoc on your roof especially loose roofing shingles, chimney flashing, pipe jack collars, and other areas of the roof. Minor roofing problems can turn into headaches when your roof is not ready to deal with the upcoming elements.
- Snow - Snow itself is deceptively heavy in weight - it looks light but imagine shoveling your driveway. If your roof does is not structurally sound to support the weight of the snow, then you could potentially risk major damage to the roof as well as your home.
- Rain / Melting Snow - Rain or melting snow can wreck havoc on your roof if the proper roof maintenance and roof repairs are not performed. Any leaks can cause damage to the interior of your home as well as potential structural damage to your attic. Loose or missing roofing shingles, damaged chimney flashing, damaged pipe jacks, as well as all other types of flashing that are not properly protecting their areas are all very easy targets for precipitation.
- Wind - High winds are a common occurrence throughout the winter. High winds can be especially damaging to roofing shingles that are loose, have been improperly installed, or are already missing for other reasons. If the roofing shingles are already loose or have been improperly installed, high winds can tear those shingles off, thus exposing your roof, sheathing, and the rest of your home to the elements and potential damage. If the roofing shingles are already missing, then the homeowner risks further shingles being torn off as the missing shingles are a good starting point for this.
