Schedule an annual roof inspection.
We recommend that all homeowners schedule an annual roof inspection. Even if your roof appears to be sound and you’re not having any issues, an inspection by a trained professional can reveal problems not apparent to an untrained eye and avert potential disaster. It’s easier and less costly to repair a minor problem now than replace your entire roof later. Here are some issues you may encounter with your roof.
Water that remains on a roof longer than 48 hours after a rainfall is defined as ponding water. Even flat roofs are designed with a slight slope to allow water runoff. Ponding water can severely impact the structural integrity of the roof deck, damage the roof membrane underneath shingles, cause algae and vegetation to grow, and cause dirt and contaminants to collect on the roof.
Leaks are, of course, an issue that should be addressed as soon as possible. A leak will rarely resolve itself. Leaks may be caused by the improper installation of flashing, the improper sealing of gaskets around vent pipes, shingles inadequate for the roof pitch, or the buildup of organic debris (such as leaves) on the roof and in gutters.
Even one shingle missing from your roof can cause a leak if it was located over a seam. You may not be able to see gaps in shingles from the ground, so it’s a good idea to have that annual inspection by a professional roofer.
Venitiation and underlayment play a key role in the life of your roof. Poorly ventilated roofs and moisture trapped in shingles themselves can cause the blistering of asphalt shingles. Over time, shingles that blister can lose their granules, becoming more exposed to intense UV light from the sun and losing their integrity.
