Summer has come into its own, so it is time to consider performing a roof inspection to ensure that your roof is ready to withstand UV rays and potential summer storms. Most problems can be detected by checking the general aspect of the roof.
If you find the following issues, you should be aware that they will worsen shortly enough, because of exposure to the sun and other weather phenomena that may occur during the summer.
- Cracked, curled or deformed shingles
- Missing shingles
- Closed or missing ridge closure accessories
- Mold and moss formation
- Shingles that lose their granulation
- Flashing problems
- Rusty accessories
- Dry rot spotted in the roof`s structure
- Lose shingles
- Problems with the pluvial drainage system
Checking the attic or the space under the roof for water infiltrations and ventilation issues is also extremely important and should be done periodically. Even some aspects that may seem minor need to be resolved immediately. Troubleshooting and maintaining the roof to an optimal performance standard is the most affordable solution to ensure the roof’s durability and functionality. If you are unable to carry out the roof inspection safely and solve the problems you have discovered, we recommend that you call specialized Denver roofing companies.
