A regular inspection of your roofing system is a proactive way of ensuring its long-term performance. With roof maintenance, you can identify any issues that can cause your tile roofing system to experience leaks and other related problems that can affect your home.
To fully maximize your inspection, it is important to prioritize the following areas of your roof:
This is the largest and most exposed component of your roof. During the inspection, make sure to check for any missing, damaged or aged shingles. Take note of any misalignments. Feel your roof shingles to determine if they no longer have texture.
Any of these problems are an indication of a vulnerable roofing system. Depending on the extent of the shingles’ damage, you may either choose to have your roof repaired or replaced. An expert contractor specializing in shingle roofing can help you in this regard.
These are found on your roofing system where shingles don’t provide cover. Check for any dents or damage. It’s possible that moisture may have seeped into your roof’s innermost layers if you find damaged flashings. Be sure to talk to a licensed roofer to determine whether a repair or a replacement is necessary for your flashings.
This is the portion of your home’s exterior where the gutters are secured. Check for any damage. The fascia can be prone to rot (if made of wood) or rust (if made of metal) because of moisture. To remedy this, a local roofing contractor can replace the fascia.
Never overlook this roof component. Check for any debris that may be clogging your gutters, and remove it. If there are already signs of damage caused by leaks, call a top contractor like Elite Roofing Solutions to help you solve this problem.
