Throughout its lifespan, your roofing may suffer a variety of issues. Many of these problems are often easy to identify and fix, especially when you detect them early. Roof inspections are often crucial in finding these issues so make sure to do routine checks. Moreover, read on to learn about some of the trouble areas that you should pay attention to from time to time.
Flashings are essential for sealing roof edges, perimeters, penetrations, drains and any other area where the roof is interrupted or terminated. That said, their main function is to help prevent leaks from occurring in any voids in the roof system. Flashings are typically made from aluminum or galvanized steel depending on the specific type of roof you have.
Ensure that your gutters have zero buildup so that you can avoid clogging, which can affect the performance of your gutter system. Blockages will make it hard for your gutters to drain water, and the presence of moisture and debris buildup can eventually lead to mildew and mold growth under your roof.
A lot of different issues can happen to your roof shingles, and some of these could be an indication of an underlying problem. For instance, discoloration could mean there’s a leak in your roof. Curling could potentially be caused by high nails, incorrectly installed fasteners or a lack of ventilation.
Fascia is basically roof trim that runs along the roofline. It’s typically made of wooden boards or sheet metal, and it serves as a protective layer between the edge of the roof and the elements. Moisture is often the cause of problems with the fascia so you might want to look out for signs of rot or damage.
