Maintaining Your Roof
It’s officially winter in Ohio.
You may have prepared for winter by getting your car serviced and having your furnace checked, but have you stopped to think about preparing your roof for the current and upcoming winter conditions?
Your roof needs attention, too!
The hot days of summer may have caused contraction of different roof elements, which could result in leaks if not attended to. Chimney flashings are especially vulnerable to summer heat and are prone to cracking open. They should be checked every year for damage. Pipe seals are also susceptible to splitting and needing to be replaced.
Check Before it’s too late
Most homeowners don’t think about maintaining their roof until they see a spot appear on their ceiling. At that point, they not only have a roof repair to address. You also have a new ceiling paint job to do.
Maintaining your roof may not be your number one priority.
But it should be on your to-do list as winter approaches.
If you haven’t gotten the chance to inspect or fix your roof, you can always call a professional, like Solid Rock Roofing, for a quick and easy solution. There’s still time to have your gutters cleaned and adjusted. Your roofer can inspect your roof for any missing shingles and can seal up any flashing points around furnace pipes and flashings in valley areas.
