The rainy season is upon us. While the relief from drought will be appreciated, severe storms can cause damage to buildings and homes. Preventative roof maintenance will make sure your roof is ready for any rain, hail, or shine. This will save you money in the long term.
These are the steps to make sure your roof is ready for rain.
Clean out your gutters
Gutters can become blocked with leaves and other debris in autumn and winter, particularly during windy conditions. When the rain comes, this can create serious problems for your gutters. It will prevent water from flowing out of your gutter and away from your home. Clearing out any obstructions can reduce water flow and prevent damage to your roof and gutters.
Inspect for damage
It’s a good idea, especially for older homes, to check for broken tiles or slippages on the roof. Even if the damage isn’t too severe, it is possible to cause major water leakage from a cracked tile. To replace broken tiles, contact a professional roofing contractor such as us.
Repair roof leaks
Are there water spots on your ceilings or walls? You should contact us immediately if you suspect that your roof is leaky. We will help you find the source of the problem and repair it before it becomes worse.
Waterproof your Roof
Even if there is no leak, waterproofing your roof is essential to avoid future moisture problems. A waterproofed roof will not only reduce the chance of roof leaks but also significantly extends the roof’s life expectancy. It is important to prepare your roof for the inevitable rains. A professional roof contractor like TT Waterproofing can help you with any roof repairs or waterproofing needs.
