Inspect Your Shingles
Interested in the health of your roof? The shingles are a wonderful place to start. We recommend periodically inspecting your roof and the shingles on it, look for any cracked, curled, missing or otherwise damaged shingles, these can be a sign of a larger problem. In the event you do find damage, contacting a roofing company for an inspection is highly recommended. They can determine whether repairs or a replacement may be necessary.
Check Chimneys, Skylights, Vent Openings, etc.
While chimneys, vents, skylights and other openings on the roof are supposed to be properly sealed during installation, over time they can become leaky, increasing your risk of water damage. We recommend carefully inspecting these areas and making sure they are still sealed. If you suspect they may be leaking, an inspection would be recommended to diagnose and address the issue.
Another wonderful place you should be inspected regularly is the attic of your home. There are times when noticing a leak from the outside can be next to impossible, however, from the inside you may be able to spot water damage/leaks. If you think you see any water inside, contact a roofing company for an inspection as soon as you can.
Debris management is a highly important part of keeping your roof in the best shape you can. We recommend trimming any tree branches, limbs or anything else that could fall/damage your roof. Periodically clean leaves and other debris from your roof as well.
