With winter closing in, roof maintenance is on the top of the list for many residential and commercial property owners. Whether attending to small roof repairs or undertaking a total roof replacement, the professionals at Patriot Roofing are here to help.
In this article, we are providing three tasks that every property owner should consider. Whether DIY or with the help of professionals, taking the time to assess these items now could save you hundreds in repair costs come next spring.
With the simple task of calling your professional roofing company in Utah, you can have all the knowledge you need. During a roof inspection, an inspector looks for things like weakened areas. Often, these areas are signed of rotten wood, lifting or missing shingles, and deteriorated materials. With the knowledge of such conditions, you are empowered to make the roof maintenance requirements needed before the snow and ice settle in.
Shingle and other roof repairs.
Whether your property has torn or missing shingles, waiting to address the situation until the spring could be a big mistake. Shingle repair, even during the winter, is imperative in avoiding water damage. By leaving the roof surface exposed, you open the door for potentially costly and dangerous elements like leaks, mold, mildew, and rodent entry.
Gutter and flashing repair.
Similar to your shingles, damaged flashing opens the doorway for water entry. Protecting your property from water entry, flashing and gutters that are cracked or blocked may lead to expensive repair needs. Be sure to check out our upcoming article on ice dams to learn more about gutter blockage and buildup.
Depending on the severity of the task, a little DIY may be in your future. However, if climbing a roof and tackling the job seems a bit much, remember, Patriot Roofing is here to assist!
