Roofs are the household’s primary guard against inclement weather. As such, it is important that you inspect your roof for any defect to ensure that your home will be well protected against downpours. Here are some of the most common roof components that need to be checked when making sure that your roof is ready for the coming rainy days:
- Gutters and roof valleys – Gutters and roof valleys can be clogged by debris, causing water to accumulate on the roof. Ponding water may lead to vulnerable areas prone to leaks and water damage.
- Flashing – Flashing is placed where the roof and the wall meet to prevent water from seeping into joints and seams, possibly causing water leakage. Damaged flashing may cause rain water to trickle down your indoor walls, causing discoloration and mold.
- Roof shingles – At least twice a year be sure to inspect roof shingles to see if there are any damaged or missing components.
