Inspecting Areas of Your Roof That Display Common Problems
Inspection is a key area of maintenance. You need to carry out regular inspections and checks of your roof and roofline system in order to begin the maintenance process. There are steps that you can carry out if you cannot see the top of your roof or it is not safe to access your roof to see above:
- Water running off of the roofline is an indication that water is flowing correctly. If there is heavy rain or extreme weather and you see that water is not draining properly – this is a cause for concern as the water is likely pooling at the top of the roof. This can cause damage over time that can cause structural damage.
- If after extreme weather – you notice debris has fallen off of the roof then you know that there may be a problem and it’s time to call in the experts. If you assess any obvious damage that you cannot see clearly then call the experts. If you are unable to access your roof safely – you will need to speak to an expert roofer.
If it’s safe to do so or you have safe visibility of your roof:
- Check for obvious damage such as loose stillages, damaged nails, environmental damage and other aspects. You will be able to see minor to major damage.
- There can be indications of major damage that are not obvious – we still highly recommend that you speak to an expert roofer if you have concerns about your roof or have not maintained it regularly.
Protect Costs Relating To Your Home
If disaster strikes your home in terms of extensive roof damage or a roof collapse – you would like to think that your insurance policies cover your roof. However, it has been known for claims to be difficult if evidence of roof maintenance cannot be provided. This is another key point as to why you should take into consideration the maintenance of your roof.
