Your roof protects your home from the elements. So, maintaining it regularly is of the utmost importance. Checking certain trouble areas helps you get ahead of issues that may compromise its structural integrity and performance.
These remain the most popular roofing choice among homeowners. Apart from being durable and affordable, asphalt shingles offer a great deal of protection for roofs. They can, however, be prone to curling and discoloration. Areas with broken or missing shingles may expose the layers underneath to water damage, leading to rot in wood components. Lack of ventilation may also cause these roofing materials to buckle.
Flashings are installed in areas where the actual roof covering stops or is interrupted. These include walls, valleys, vents and dormers. They help seal voids where water may penetrate and become prime areas for leaks to occur. Be sure to check them during one of your inspections for any signs of deterioration such as rust.
Also known as the roof’s trim, it is the horizontal band running along the edge of the roofline. Often composed of wooden boards or sheet metal, its main role is to protect the home’s interior from weather damage. Fascia, however, attracts moisture, especially when it rains. As such, always inspect it for signs of rot or damage.
