But leaks can happen anywhere, when the cold causes shrinkage and separation. If you suspect leaks, don’t wait to call! Your home is your most important investment and works very hard to keep you and your family safe from the elements.
So do what you can to protect your most valuable investment, and check and inspect your home regularly to ensure it lasts as long as possible!
Roof Inspections Check List
- Look for nails popping out. This is an indication that the roof is poorly ventilated. It’s said that up to 85% of roofs in the US are not adequately ventilated.
- Check to see if a gap has opened up around your chimney cricket (the V-shaped object behind your chimney).
- Go into your attic with a flashlight and sniff. If something smells dank or like mildew, call us ASAP.
- While you’re in the attic, look for stains, drips, or moisture.
- Look at your roof from your yard. You should see PVC pipes extending from the bathroom fans or kitchen vent along with your chimney, if you have one. Keep an eye out for leaks or even stains coming from these openings in your roof.
- Check gutter condition. Manufacturing plants put far more asphalt than they need, so look at your downspouts for an overabundance of granules clogging up the gutter and causing damaging overflow.
- When hanging your lights look for granules in your gutters – due to excessive rain or that your attic is so hot that the asphalt is coming off.
