Roof leaks are the bane of any homeowners existence, a tiny drip can turn into a flood that causes extensive damage across your home. Thankfully, while a well maintained roof can handle this threat across the majority of your property, there are a few weak areas across your roof that are liable to produce water damage. These areas include skylights, chimney, vents, and other areas that protrude from your roof extensively. These are weak areas in your roofs armor, and left unchecked they are often top offenders for producing leaks. However, this is where roof flashing comes in! Roofing flashing is a protective seal that works to provide a guard in these hard to protect areas, they are there to prevent water entering your home during bad weather or particularly nasty storm seasons. While roof flashing is amazing and efficient at your job, it is just like any other area across your home: it needs constant upkeep and maintenance from a trusted roofing company. Usually two inspections a year, one in the fall and the other in the spring is sufficient enough to keep your roof flashing and other materials in good condition.
It is important to keep these inspections in mind, improperly installed or damaged flashing is one sure-fire way to sprout a leak in your home. Have your roofing company take a good look at all areas of flashing across your roof to make sure that no unneeded, unnecessary leaks cause any damage to your home.
