Rooftops need maintenance and lots of attention. Far too often homeowners completely ignore their rooftops and the rest of the home eventually suffers as a result. By checking, monitoring, and repairing your roof you’re helping to protect your home and everything in it.
Regularly inspecting your rooftop is one of the best ways to maintain it. Homeowners often go years without climbing up to take a look at their roof. The less attention you give your roof the more opportunity you’re giving it to decay and crumble. All it takes is glancing at your roof from the ground and making sure that everything is fine. If you’d like, you could use a ladder and climb up in order to get a better look. Try checking the condition of your roof about once every three or four months. If you’re unable to climb up and check it yourself, you can call the Charleston Roofing Company and have a professional do it for you.
The typical signs of a roofing problem are missing, cracked, loose, or crumbling shingles. For instance, missing and loose shingles can occur after a thunderstorm; things like strong winds and hail can work to loosen and rip shingles off of the roof. Shingles that crumble likely do so because they’re old and need to be replaced. Shingles spend day after day in the hot sun, and this heat can do a lot to deteriorate a shingle. If you notice granules on the ground or crumbling shingles, have a roofer replace them right away.
Most homeowners aren’t aware that their rooftops have a problem until a leak occurs in the home. Pay attention to the ceilings in your home in order to spot potential problems. Water rings can be found on ceilings and along walls. Check the attic periodically as well in order to catch problematic areas that could become worse. The Charleston Roofing Company can have a professional patch your roof before your home experiences anymore water damage.
