Each home needs annual maintenance and your home's roof is no exception. To properly protect your home from the elements year round, the roof must be inspected annually and properly maintained if need be. If left unattended, you roof may become damaged in areas such as the chimney flashing, pipe jack, or you may have curled or missing roofing shingles that may potentially lead to a leak if severe weather approaches your region.
Proper Roofing Maintenance
- Clear debris from your roof. Leaves and branches can and will soak up water, thus causing damage to your shingles as well as your gutters. The roof is designed to channel water away from the house, which cannot take place if debris are present.
- Check state of flashing. Flashing may become loose around the chimney or pipe jack flashing may have holes, thus causing larger issues in the long run.
- Missing or damaged shingles. Check for missing or curled shingles, as they can further tear off and potentially expose your roof to damage. Depending on the severity of the curling, in many cases the roofing shingles may have to be replaced to properly protect the sheathing.
- Maintain gutters. Maintaining your gutters is a crucial aspect of protecting your roof as well as the rest of the home. The gutters play an integral role in carrying water away from the house. If they cannot perform their functions, you can quickly see damage wreck havoc on the home.
