Quick Roof Repair And Maintenance Tips

Things are looking up for​ homeowners who want to​ stay on​ top of​ roof​ repairs.

Following a​ few expert tips for​ ongoing roof​ maintenance and​ repair can help you​ prevent mold intrusion​ due to​ water leakage and​ avoid extensive roof​ repairs.

Experts recommend starting your​ roof​ check with a​ visual inspection. Most minor problems can be detected before they get to​ be major ones. Inspect for​ cracks, splits and​ tears-any you​ see can result in​ a​ leak.

Inspect all roof​ penetrations including skylights, chimneys and​ roof​ vents to​ see if​ the cement around them still adheres. Any separation​ can allow water to​ get through.

Look for​ shingles that are not properly adhered or​ loose, apply a​ quarter-size amount of​ roof​ cement with a​ brush under every shingle tab that is​ lifting and​ secure each in​ place.

Take a​ look at​ the flashings for​ areas that have suffered damage or​ have become warped. to​ repair flashing leaks, apply plastic roof​ cement between the adjoining materials and​ secure in​ place. if​ you​ are making the repair under wet or​ colder conditions, use a​ high-quality product such as​ Henry 208® Wet Patch® Roof​ Cement to​ ensure the repairs are permanent. this​ roof​ repair cement can be applied if​ the roof​ is​ wet or​ even if​ it​ is​ raining.

Purchase and​ keep a​ canister of​ roof​ repair cement on​ hand​ and​ make minor roof​ repairs immediately when it​ is​ safe to​ reach the damaged area. High-quality roof​ repair cement is​ inexpensive, easy to​ use and​ ideal to​ use for​ most minor roof​ damage.

Henry 209 Elastomeric® Roof​ Patch Cement is​ a​ better choice when making general roof​ repairs in​ dry or​ sunny weather. for​ repairs to​ gutters and​ downspouts, be sure that both are kept free of​ debris.

Wind gusts exceeding 40 mph can cause minor roof​ damage, including loss of​ shingles and​ holes from flying debris, and​ drive moisture into cracks around chimneys and​ skylight flashings.
