3 Ways To Make Your Roof Outlast The Storms


3 Ways To Make Your Roof Outlast The Storms

Storm season is about to arrive…it is important to protect your home before the big storms hit. However, it is important to know HOW to prepare your home for the upcoming storms. Otherwise, you could be stuck repairing your roof or other further damage caused by storms.

Here are a few tips on how you can make sure your roof outlasts the storms:

1. Get An Inspection.

If you notice any cracks or gaps, you can be guaranteed that water will find its way into them when the rain starts coming down. Cracks or gaps in your roofing can be particularly difficult to detect, which is why it is important for a professional to inspect your roof. When water starts seeping into your roof, there can be major issues in the future. Water and moist climates are a perfect habitat for mold and mildew. If water is leaking into your roof, then it could come in contact with the wood structure of your home. This could compromise the structural integrity of your home, so be sure to get an inspection to prevent these terrible concerns.

2. Clean Your Gutters & Roof Valleys.

Your gutters and roof valleys play an extremely important role in the safety of your home. When it rains, your roof valleys and gutters work to channel the water down off of your roof and away from the foundation of your home. You may have to call a specialist to clear them of debris. When your gutters are full of debris, the water has nowhere to go; therefore, the water will stay stagnant in the gutters. This means that gutters can have a hard time drying. This will cause more moisture in your gutters and this can cause more problems. This could cause leaks in your home or even attract unwanted insects.  

3. Trim Trees and Foliage.

If branches were to come down in the middle of a storm on top of your roof, it could cause serious damage. One of the best things that you can do before the storm season hits is to call a specialist to clear back any safety hazards. Falling branches can cause structural or roof damage that can be more costly than simply removing the branches beforehand. If you have a tree that is leaning towards your house, we would recommend that you consider removing branches or the tree itself before it possibly causes damage to your home.

Take these three points and take precautions before a storm could hit. Your roof is the most important part of your home. Do you see that your gutters should be clean? Do you see many leaning branches hovering over your roof? Are you afraid that you have a water leak? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it’s time to schedule an inspection with a professional.
