“How can I maintain my roof?”
A well-maintained roof lasts longer, and best protects your home from the elements. The best way to maintain your roof is with regularly scheduled maintenance appointments from a professional roofing company. They have the experience and training to operate on your roof safely, spot any damage, and make repairs. At Foothills Roofing, their maintenance program includes checking for worn caulking, missing nails, and damaged shingles. Furthermore, if there’s any damage, they’ll fix it and the root of the issue.
“Is there any winter-specific maintenance?”
Yes! There are a few things to check before the snow arrives. Firstly, are the flashing properly caulked? Improperly caulked flashings allow water to penetrate your home, leading to rust or rot. Similarly, exposed nails can also let water into your home. Therefore, it’s important to seal all nails properly! Lastly, gutters, eaves, and drainage systems must be cleaned.
“What should I do if I think my roof has been damaged by hail?”
Hail damage is serious and leads to severe issues if untreated. Hard hail impacts can crack or shatter shingles, leaving your home vulnerable to weather. This compromises the integrity of your roof. Water can penetrate your roof and reach the structure of your home. Additionally, the damage quickly worsens with the weather, excessive temperatures, and pests. Unless repaired, even the smallest hole can become a big problem. If you’re concerned that a hail storm has damaged your roof, contact Foothill Roofing for a free inspection and quote.
“Do I have to replace my leaky roof?”
Not necessarily. You do, however, need an inspection from a reputable roofer. Following a thorough inspection, they’ll diagnose the cause of the leak and recommend either repair or replacement. Sometimes, it’s easy to repair the root of the issue. Alternatively, the problem and subsequent water damage may be too extensive to repair. In that case, you will need to replace your roof.
