Proactive Steps For Protecting Your Roofing System From Rain

Many homeowners neglect to maintain their roofs until it is too late, or when a flood or leaking has already occurred. It’s crucial to take proactive steps to protect your roof from the rain. Here are some things you can do (and should): do:

Make The Necessary Roof Repairs

Your roofing system in Fort Worth will not withstand rain if it isn’t in good condition. You’ll be flooded with expensive, irreparable damages as the leaks continue to build up. It is important to make roof repairs immediately.

Examples of possible damages that you might look out for:

  • Missing, damaged, or dented shingles
  • Leaks
  • Structural damage under the hood
  • Gutter obstructions: Clogged, sagging or loose gutters
  • Cracked flashing

After identifying a roof problem, you can make a decision about whether to repair or replace it. The extent of damage to your roof, your budget flexibility, and the length of your stay in your home will all play into this decision. A local roofing contractor may be able to help you make a decision.

Gutters Must Function Properly

Gutters are an important part of any roofing system. They help direct rain away from your house. It is important that they are functioning correctly.

The gutter should be cleaned regularly, generally speaking. Any debris, sticks or other materials can build up and cause gutters to clog, causing them to overflow. Also, check for any leaking gutters, sagging gutters, loose or poorly sloped gutters. They may not be doing the job you want them to.

You might be wondering if your home does not need gutters. You probably do. Some homes may not need gutters, but most Texas homes do. It is a good idea to contact a local roofing contractor to arrange a gutter installation. It will pay off in the end!

Check The Flashing Around The Skylights

Skylights can add tons of natural light to your house, making it appear brighter and more open. Skylights can also be a potential leak risk, as they allow rainwater to seep into your home. Leakage can occur in any opening between the roofing material and your skylight.

It is important to have roof flashing installed around your skylights. If you have it already, it should be checked for damage. If you notice cracks or damage to the roof, contact a professional immediately.

Schedule A Professional Roof Inspection

A licensed professional can inspect your roof to make sure it is in good condition. A licensed professional will inspect your roof from the exterior and interior, and check for any weatherproofing, gutters, and shingles. To ensure that any problems are addressed promptly, it is recommended to schedule a roof inspection once a year.
