Summer Roof Maintenance
We continually talk about how important it is to inspect your roof regularly. This is a roof maintenance tactic that can take a repair from something large to a minor repair. Here’s a few things you may want to check before it gets too hot and humid.
The shingles of your roof are its first line of defense, so if any are damaged or missing you could be looking at a leak. If shingles lift it makes it easier for water to get through to the underlayment. With storms happening here and there water and wind are sure to have beat down your roof. This means that it could possibly have worn away the grit of the asphalt shingles diminishing their effectiveness.
Just because shingles are damaged doesn’t mean they will be lifting. They still may need to be replaced especially if they are torn or creased. Not all roofs need to be replaced instead you may just need to fix a few shingles here and there, this is an important step in your roof maintenance process.
