Unless you want to put your roof’s structural integrity on the line, you should never put off having your leaky roof fixed. You need to have your entire roofing system properly inspected so you can gauge how much damage you are dealing with. Here are some possibilities storm damage repair expert, Moss Roofing, suggests you consider.
Weathered and Missing Shingles
As your roof’s first line of defense, your shingles need to be in top condition at all times. Have missing shingles replaced right away. If your shingles look like they’ve lost a lot of color over just a year or so, they may be weathering faster than they should be. Broken and dented shingles will also need immediate repair as water can just as easily seep through them.
Clogged Gutters and Downspouts
Don’t forget that your gutters form part of your roofing system too. Gutters and downspouts help drain your roof and keep water from pooling on its surface. When your gutters are clogged with leaves, branches, detached roofing materials, or any other form of debris, have a professional roofing and gutter company, like Moss Roofing, clear it out.
You should have flashing installed along the edges of your roofs or the eaves, down the roofing ridges and valleys, as well as around the base of your chimneys. Flashings prevent water from reaching the lower layers of your roof. If you find defects in those areas or discover you have somehow lost one or all of them, act with urgency and have them repaired or replaced as needed.
