This season, your goal is to make sure your home’s roofing is leak-free. The best way to do this is to prevent leaks from forming in the first place. But where do leaks usually form? HomeGuard Roofing and Restoration discusses this further.
Roof valleys are the areas where two planes of the roof come together. Since this specific area is naturally sloped, rainwater can easily enter the space between them if they aren’t properly sealed. The sealing itself can get undone by exposure to water, or general wear and tear as the roof gets older.
Our roofing contractor suggests you have our team take a look at your roof if you suspect the valleys have lost their sealing. Addressing roof valleys is complex and often risky work, but our team has years of experience addressing these problem areas, and we’ll make sure we address them before they become bigger problems.
Flashings are the thin metal strips that you’ll find in the more vulnerable parts of your roof. Their role is to protect and divert water away from that specific area and prevent intrusion. As a result, they are often the first part of the roof to get worn down by elemental damage.
If you notice that your ceiling has water and moisture marks, or there is water pooling on the floor away from the walls, then the flashings might need replacing soon.
The most obvious problem area is often the most forgettable one. Cracked shingles are easy to discredit and ignore, but leaving them as they are increases the risk of leaks forming on your roof. Our roofing company recommends that you have us do an in-depth inspection on your roofing so we can identify potential problem areas and address them before leaks appear.
