Roofing is a highly specialized trade, and your roof is responsible for protecting your home from the elements. If your roof isn’t in good shape, it could mean a high-cost fix later on to restore its functionality. Problems developing in your roofing system can lead to leaks, mold, rot, and other issues that will cost you time and money to repair.
In an annual inspection of the condition of your roof, professional roofers from Presidential Roofing will look closely at how well each individual element of the roofing system is working together to protect the structure of your home. The flashing around the chimney should be sealed so water doesn’t leak into the brick. The downspouts should be installed correctly and functioning as they are supposed to so water drains away from the foundation instead of collecting near it. The gutters should have no obstructions or holes so they deliver water away from the house where it will do minimal damage.
The shingles on your roof should be secured so wind won’t lift them off and strong enough to withstand hail up to 3 inches in diameter without breaking apart. A ventilation system is also important to keep moisture levels down in the attic space where it won’t cause rot or mold problems for the structure below.
