Following are a few tips to help prepare your roof for the upcoming rainy season and protect it against the adverse effects of the weather:

Gutter cleaning and repair

There is a higher chance for the gutter and drainage system to get clogged and overflow during heavy rainfall. It can not only cause severe water damage to your roof but also has the potential to deteriorate your siding. A clean gutter will facilitate the smooth flow of water and prevent water damage to your roof.

Check roof shingles

During rainstorms and harsh winds, your roof is vulnerable to damages such as cracked or dislodge shingles. If there are any damaged or loose shingles on your roof, it may allow the water and moisture to penetrate your roof, cause dampness and leakage or severe water damage, and pose a serious threat to your family’s safety. Therefore, it is best to consult with a professional roof contractor to assess any potential roofing problems and take preventive measures to ensure your roof is appropriately weatherproof.

Schedule a Professional Inspection

A roof inspection is essential for safety concerns during the rainy season. There are many factors that may directly or indirectly affect your roof. It is best to schedule a comprehensive inspection of your gutter, roofing, siding, masonry, and chimney by licensed professionals. An inspection will not only ensure your family’s safety but also prevent expensive roof repairs and replacements later. Our professional contractors are well experienced in identifying any potential hazards and hidden problems that may put you or your home at risk.

Check your siding

If your siding gets damaged during the rainy season, it may allow water to penetrate your roof and jeopardize your roof’s structural integrity. Therefore, it is best to conduct a visual inspection, and if you notice any cracks or damages, it is recommended to get them fixed immediately. Our roofing contractors are well aware of all the potential risks to your roof during the rainy season and would also inspect your siding to make sure the panels are securely in place.

Waterproof your chimney

Chimney problems make your roof extremely vulnerable to damages during the rainy season. Therefore, you should always make sure to get proper chimney cap installation from licensed professionals. It is also essential to get a chimney inspection to ensure there are no damages or cracks in the chimney, which may allow the rain to penetrate your roof and walls. It is not possible for homeowners to visually inspect the inside of the chimney themselves. Therefore, it is best to hire expert professionals for this job.
