The key to prolonging your roofing system is conducting regular roof maintenance and roof inspections. However, there are some things that you can do on your own to further protect your beloved roofing system from damage and costly repairs.
The surface includes the roofing shingles, flashing, fasteners, nails and roofing granules. You should conduct a visual inspection to find out if there are some issues like loose shingles, fasteners, crooked nails or damaged flashing. It helps to spot these issues early on to prevent these problems from worsening, leading to costly repairs.

It’s also important to check the support system beneath your roofing system. Your residential roof replacement contractor recommends checking out the system for signs of unevenness or sagging which indicates that it’s time to have your roof repaired.
The condition of your attic significantly affects your roofing system’s performance. This is why roofers emphasize the importance of attic ventilation. Make sure that you watch out for signs of staining, mold, rot, damaged wood and rusty nails, which could indicate that there is too much moisture in your attic.
When you’re checking the ceiling below your attic, try to check for leaks or water streaks as well as ventilation problems. These signs of water damage can indicate that you have insulation issues.
