Your roofing system is one of the strongest structures in your home. Despite this, it features several areas susceptible to wear and tear due to the elements. It is important that you identify these problematic parts and tackle their issues. In doing so, you save on costly repairs and prevent your roof from incurring further damage.
Mobley Brothers Roofing and Restoration, your local residential roof replacement contractor, discusses the roof’s problems areas you should pay attention to.
It is one of the most vulnerable areas of your roof given its close proximity to your gutters. When they don’t do their intended function of channeling water away from your home, the roofline begins to deteriorate. In particular, the excess weight being placed on the gutters due to standing water puts unnecessary strain on the wooden components of the roofline.
The Roof Flashings
Areas of your roofing system where water may penetrate have this component called flashing. It is used to seal the edges around valleys, chimneys, and drains. Continuous exposure to the elements causes it to slide out. Nails may come loose and caulk may dry and crack in time. Give it special attention during one of your scheduled inspections to ensure its functionality.
This component of your roof is suspended over the actual structure. It doesn’t have any cover, which means it can suffer from physical and moisture damage. Like the other problem areas mentioned here, it requires routine checkup to reduce problems of ventilation and insulation in your home.
