Some threats to your home’s roofing system could come from other factors aside from the harsh elements, such as vermin. If left unaddressed and combined with the weather, they can cause enough damage that would warrant complete roof replacement.
If you want to protect your home from these forces of nature, you’ll need our help with preventive roof repair. Here’s why.
How Does Preventive Roof Repair Work?
The main objective of preventive roof repair is to get rid of existing factors that could make your roof weak or otherwise attractive to pests. Proactive maintenance allows you to spot problems on your roofing system before they get worse or become bigger and more expensive problems.
Because preventive roof repair requires considerable experience and equipment, it’s a task best left to our team of experts. You can certainly inspect your roof from the ground, but going up there is a bad idea, even if you have safety equipment or training.
Getting Rid of Moisture
A big part of preventive roof repair is fixing moisture-related problems. Other than pests, moisture attracts mold and mildew growth. Spores can make your roof look ugly, cause health problems, and proliferate quickly in the presence of constant humidity. Common problem areas include flashing and shingles near or along the fascia.
Unfortunately, some of these areas can be overlooked during DIY inspections. Our specialists can perform a thorough inspection of your roof for areas that could serve as entry points moisture and seal them before they lead to major damage.
Gutter Maintenance for Extra Protection
Keeping the roofing system safe from water and a sudden profusion of fauna also involves taking good care of the gutters. A damaged gutter can also cause moisture buildup. Plus, clogged gutters due to leaves and branches draw termites, which are another pest that can compromise your dwelling’s structural integrity. Fortunately, our roofers have the skills and experience necessary to perform preventive maintenance on gutters.
