Your roof faces just as much duress in the summer as it does during other seasons. You need to be on the lookout for any potential dangers to your home. There is not a better time to inspect your roof for threats the summer. Here are some tips to make sure your roof is in working order.
When walking on your roof, be sure to take careful steps so you do not damage any old shingles. They are very hard and brittle. Do yourself a favor and inspect your roof before the hottest parts of the day arrive. A good time would be before 9:00 AM or around sun down for an inspection later in the day.
One part of your roof that you cannot afford to overlook is your gutters. Be sure to check for debris and excess materials and clean them out. Clogged gutters can cause thousands of dollars in repairs. Inspecting them will help you avoid costly problems. After a heavy storm, be sure to inspect the flow of your gutters as well.
After a severe storm with heavy winds, there is a possibility that the shingles on your roof will be lifted out of place. If you look around and see shingles in either your yard or a neighbor’s, be sure to inspect your roof as soon as possible to detect damage and prevent further damage. Look around the surrounding area to see if there are any possible intrusions such as trees that could potentially damage your roof.
