As a homeowner, you must perform roofing inspection and maintenance. These will make sure that your property stays in great condition. Don’t wait for leaks and other issues to arise before you take action. You can ask professional assistance from a roofing company, or you can do a simple roofing inspection on your own.
During roof inspections, some homeowners think that using a ladder is necessary. However, this is not always the case. You can simply use a pair of binoculars to take a closer look at the status of your roof without leaving the ground.
Crown Roofing shares some things that you need to check:
Holes in the Deck: Check to see if there are holes in the deck. To look for holes, you may want to check if sunlight shows through the plywood. Take note that these holes may cause leaks.
Sagging Roof Line: If you see a weakened roof deck, it may be due to trapped water or moisture. You might need to call a roofing contractor to come over and fix the issue for you.
Dark Stains on Shingles: You might have a mold or algae growth on your roof. This may be due to improper water drainage, or, maybe, your roof is no longer capable of handling moisture. To help you determine the cause, you might need to contact an expert roofer.
Clogged Gutters: Clogged or blocked gutters may contribute to ice dam formation or water damage on your roof. You can get gutter cleaning services to solve this issue.
Missing or Damaged Shingles: If you see that there are missing or cracked shingles on your roofing system, it’s time to get a replacement. If the damage is too severe, you might need to ask for a new roof installation from your trusted contractor.
