Preventative Roofing Safety Tips
The following tips should help you in both the winter and summer.
Book Roofing Inspections Regularly
If I told you that I only get my car checked every five years or so, you might think I was nuts, especially with the sleet and snow we have to drive through around here. But given what our roofs must withstand each year, it could put you at great risk to keep putting off a roof inspection.
The point of a roof inspection is to ensure the safety of your family and home while also preventing outrageous expenditures on more extensive roofing repairs down the road. If you catch problems early, you can sometimes prevent injuries due to loose shingles, leaks, and other issues. Remember: Your wallet can suffer injuries, too. A regular inspection helps keep everyone — and everything — safe.
Install Gutters to Your Home
Some homes do not have gutters. If you live in an area where the ground slopes toward your home or there is frequent rain and snow, you more than likely need gutters.
If you already have gutters, you need to keep them clean and make sure you don’t need a gutter replacement. When your gutters do not work properly, everything between the roof and the foundation can suffer from water damage. Water damage causes a lot of devastation, like mold.
If you notice leaks or mold, it could be a sign that your gutters need to be cleaned or replaced. Our professional team can inspect your gutters to see that they are working the way they should. This is easy to do and can prevent a lot of hassle. It should be done in conjunction with roofing upkeep because the two are so closely related.
