After years of exposure to the weather, a roofing system can start to wear and break down. Curling, peeling, warping of roof shingles, splitting wood, or worn tiles start to show. Rusting metal panels and flashing can also appear. They all lead to permanent damage to your roof and, finally, to the whole structure of your home. Regular inspections by Willi Roofing Services can discover these issues before they worsen. They can help head off disaster and save you money from expensive repairs.
Here’s what you should watch out for.
Walk around the inside of your home and look for any water stains on your interior room ceilings or walls. Watch out for peeling tape joints or blistering paint on the ceiling. Interior drips when it is raining or signs of wet insulation in the attic could signal water leaks. Rotting wood in your fascia boards or gutter attachment can say the same. If you see these issues early in inspection and act on them right away, you save money on repairs or replacement.
Check flashings around chimneys, skylights, vent pipes, and where roof and wall meet. Use binoculars to avoid climbing the roof or seek help from a professional roofer. Get any damaged flashing replaced immediately to prevent water leakage in these areas. You save money from the more costly water damage repairs.
Rotted Wooden Components
Except for shingles, all parts of the house structure are vulnerable to water leakage. This includes the sheathing and down into wooden trusses and rafters. Rotted wooden components need expensive replacement. To avoid this expense and save money get regular roof inspections done.
