How to Prevent Leaks and Damage:
WhThere are a few things you can do to prevent leakes and maintain your roof to keep you from spending a small fortune. Here are some tips and tricks.
1. Look for anything that 'pops' out of the roof. If there is a vent, satellite dish, skylight,chimney or such coming out of your roof, take a look at the flashing around it. Make sure it looks secure and there are no gaps or damage. Ask yourself if they look like they need to be sealed or painted or if it needs to be replaced.
2. Maintain your gutter. If the gutter gets clogged up in places or is broken and shifts water to other parts of the roof that may not be equipped to handle it, you can get extra damage. Gutters cause moisture, which is no friend to the wood under your roof or the parts around it. When debree collects over time in the gutter, it can damage your roof in a few different ways.
If you can't get to your gutter or don't have time to maintain it, just call us, your Evansville roofer. We can take care of that for you as well.
3. Step Flashing: Check areas where step flashing is necessary like dormers, roof to wall transitions, where low quality sealant has been used in the past.
4. Drip edge. Make sure you have drip edges and maintain them well. This is highly important to make sure water is kept away from the fascia. (they also help keep out bugs and pests)
