Winter’s harsh snow and wind can cause damage to your home’s exterior. Before the temperatures go lower, hire a professional to inspect your roof and address any damage the system may have. If a minor problem is already present, these elements can cause more damage, including leaks and even failure.
Here’s a fall roof inspection from a trusted roofing company, Adams Roofing Professionals, Inc.
Things to Look For
Missing or Loose Shingles – Damaged shingles or tiles put your roof at risk of leaks, which can result in costly water damage. All missing or loose shingles should be repaired or replaced immediately.
Bruises – Hailstones can pit or crack shingles. Though the shingles remain in one piece, the impact can bruise the underlayment. These bruises can spread and tear, leaving you with a leaking roof.
Damaged Flashing – Flashing secures the connections around chimneys and vents and along valleys between roof sections. With damaged or loose flashing, water and ice can infiltrate your home and compromise the roof’s structural integrity.
Aging Shingles – Excessive granule loss is an indication of aging roofing shingles. Worn shingles will not provide your home with sufficient protection against harsh elements.
Why You Shouldn’t Delay Roof Inspections
Fall is one of the best times of the year to conduct a roof inspection. Temperatures are milder and not as rainy. It would allow your contractor to check your roof without having to reschedule due to bad weather.
It won’t take long before it starts snowing. Snow, sleet, rain and wind can cause damage to your roof. Loose or missing shingles can allow moisture to penetrate your interior.
