Inspection Does It: Identifying Common Roof Problems

Inspection Does It: Identifying Common Roof Problems
Roofing

Your roof takes a lot of abuse from the weather on a daily basis. Occasional storms and winter and summer extremes can take their toll over time. As soon as it starts to notice dripping in some parts of your ceiling or a stain on your wall, it is best to get to the “roof” of the matter, so to speak, before things get out of hand and drain your savings.
 


Proper roof maintenance includes the regular inspection of all roofing parts. If you’re thinking of doing the inspection on your own, look for obvious signs. These tips should help:

  • Shingles that are starting to buckle, curl, or blister can be an indication that water has seeped in underneath, which can mean the end of the shingles’ life span.
  • Check the flashing on the roof. Damaged flashing may be a cause for leaks.
  • Spot any worn or loose material around pipes, chimneys, and other openings.
  • Granules protect shingles from ultraviolet rays and give them added weight. Check your gutters for any excessive amounts of shingle granules.
  • Inspect the interiors for any signs of leaking. Check the attic for water stains, mold, and other indications of moisture getting into your home.
  • If shingles or tiles are missing, especially on a large area of the roof, you may need to call professional roofing companies in Hampton Roads to help you out.

Additional safety tip: Before you even climb up the roof, get your safety gear and other tools ready. Make sure you have a sturdy, secure ladder to use.

Thorough professional inspection matters.

Identifying the source of common roof issues is not something you can do just by looking at the surface. You may need to contact a professional Virginia Beach roofing company to help you do a thorough check. An expert roofer will be able to check problems in the following areas: soffit, fascia, gutters and drains, flashing, chimneys and vents, skylights, control zone access, fall arrest anchors, and vents
