Roof Repair - Why Repair Your Roof After a Long Winter?
Every winter, your roof gets bombarded with wind, snow, ice and continual thaw-freeze conditions. This can result in severe and often hidden damage to the roof. Your roof can then leak during spring months when the heavy rains begin. Without a roof repair check-up and required repairs to your roof, a flood of water can cause thousands in damages - damages that could have easily been prevented.
Some of the areas your roof may require repairs are the loose or missing shingle that were damaged from hard winter winds. Shingles are extremely brittle in cold temperatures, and hard driven cold winds can easily break shingles. Flashing repairs are also important to repair because exposed nails and sealants such as caulking often dry out and fall apart. This creates open gaps for water to easily cause an enormous leak. The worst danger areas are around chimneys, skylights, and anywhere shingles butt up against a wall. These are all very crucial roof repair areas during the new raining spring months.
Always check these repair references and make damn sure they are recent. A good roofing repair company will also deduct the cost of the roof check up from any additional roof repair costs.Always be sure that a roofing company performing the roof repair check up looks in your home's attic. The underside of your roof deck tells a huge, accurate story of everything that is happening on your roof. Stains, rust where the nails are poking through the wood roof deck, water marks on the insulation, wet insulation, everything shows in the attic. Repairs are accurate using this method.
Your eave troughs also play an important role in any good spring roof repair tune up. Water can collect in the eaves due to plugged drainage. When water freezes it expands and bends eave troughs out of shape and out of position. Ice dams can also form playing real havoc to wood and shingles. A good roof repair tune up will check for and solve the damage before it is too late.
Spring is here. Now is the time to do repair to your roof. Roof repairs during the early months of spring after a hard blistery winter can literally save you thousands of dollars of damage and can keep your roof in tip top shape.
