Roof damage can be more than just shingles

by: Kirsten Land on March 19th, 2019 about Residential Roofing

 It’s important to monitor the condition of your roof, as small areas of damage can quickly become major problems. If there’s been severe weather in your area recently, it’s a good idea to get your roof checked.  

Even if there hasn’t been severe weather, a regular inspection from a qualified roofing company can help keep your roof in great shape. Here are a few things we look for when taking preventative measures.

Cleaning

Your yard and roof should be clear of any twigs, leaves, branches, and anything else that could potentially clog up a gutter. Loose debris can also cause damage to a roof when blown around by very strong winds. 

Shingles

Shingles can be damaged in a multitude of ways: curling, cupping, flaking, tearing, splitting, and blistering. Basically, watch out for any shingles that don’t look normal. If an edge has lifted, the corners are curling up off the roof, or anything looks like it is broken, that area’s effectiveness may be compromised.

Roof vents and beyond

Your roof is made up of more than just the shingles. Roof vents can also become damaged or rusted and allow water to seep into your home. Areas where the roof level changes can also be a source of leaks if damaged. Any teeth marks, scratches, or holes in your housing material are signs of an animal taking up residence.

Maintenance 

Land Enterprises Roofing offers preventative maintenance for both commercial and residential roofing. Twice a year, we will inspect your roof for any signs of damage. With a regular inspection and routine maintenance, you can ensure the good health of your roof. 

There are things you can do yourself to make sure your roof is safe, but ultimately, a professional roofer that you trust should take a look if you suspect any damage has occurred.
