Summer is the perfect time for roof maintenance thanks to the warm weather. As one of the leading roofers in the area, Roofing by Curry highly recommends starting a regular roof maintenance program. Preventive maintenance can improve your roof’s performance and appearance as well as save you significant amounts of time and money. Here are four expert maintenance tips:
Inspect Your Gutters and Downspouts. Check if there are any leaves, pine needles and dirt runoff in your gutter system. You should also make sure there are no obstructions because gutter clogs can cause roof leaks and water damage to your interior. Gutter cleaning can be too risky for an untrained homeowner, however, so it’s best to turn to professionals.
Check Out the Flashing on Your Roof. From the ground, look for your roof’s flashing, and see if there is any damage. The flashing protects the most vulnerable areas of your roof, including the valleys, penetrations and the areas where your roof meets a well. Loose flashing can provide a way for water to enter and damage your system. Call expert roofers if you see any problems with your flashing for the necessary solutions.
Pay Attention to Your Attic. You need to be on the lookout for mold and soaked insulation in your attic as these can be signs of roof leaks or improper ventilation. You need to remedy this as soon as possible because soaked insulation leads to poor energy efficiency and higher energy bills.
Provide Timely Repairs. One of the keys to maintaining an efficient roofing system is by providing timely repairs. At the first sign of damage to your system, we recommend calling professional roofers for a more thorough inspection. After we’ve checked your system, we can offer you our repair services.
