Most experts agree that inspecting the roof on your home or office building twice per year is sufficient. The spring and fall are the best times. Homeowners who have gutters around the house will want to make sure the gutters are free of leaves and debris before the first big spring rain storm hits and this can be done at the same time as the roof inspection.
All the pipes that extend upward from your roof have some type of caulk or flashing that works to prevent leaking. We check around each one of these to make sure there are no signs of damage or wear. Next, we check for signs of fungus or algae growth. This can happen if you have low-hanging branches over your roof. It’s also important to check for missing or damaged shingles. Lastly, we check around the chimney. The flashing and/or adhesive product used around the chimney will wear out over the years allowing rain to seep in.
We advise if any leaves or debris are on the roof and suggest trimming back any low-hanging branches. If you do see possible problems on your roof, call DT Roofing right away. Maintenance problems like this are an easy fix but if you wait leaks can occur that you may not see in the house, this can cause mold or other types of damage that are more expensive to correct.
Most roofs will develop a leaks years before the whole roof needs to be replaced. Leaks can be caused by localized damage, such as a damaged or missing shingle or tile. Each time you have a storm with high winds, roof damage can occur. Very often, the damage is not evident until water starts leaking into the home. Most homeowners just don’t have the time or the tools to go up on the roof and perform an inspection after a storm, leaving them vulnerable to water damage or mold.
