Maintaining A Dependable Roof

Mar 22, 2008
It will be extremely alarming to go up into the attic one day and become aware that there has been water streaming in from a hole in the house top. The one problem that can be more alarming than finding a really ugly roof problem is what it cost you to fix it. Making a thorough examination in an attic on a frequent schedule is one wise way to keep from having water devastation and those expensive repairs.

The most telling time to check out your attic for house top leaks that are coming inside is while there is rain going on. This is the most efficient way to uncover exactly where the water is originating from .The leaking likely develops with shingles that have worked loose or have been blown off entirely because of either windy weather or inadequate installation. Even though you might have a new roof, it is still necessary to do examinations sometimes to make certain a compromised area does develop.

When you find a leaky place fast enough, any big water issues should have been prevented. The answer may be as simple as gluing a few loose shingles or if the tar paper under them is in rough condition, an area of this might need replacing as well. When the damage has gotten worse than this, it could be essential to replace a whole roof area, wood and all, when the wood has been exposed to water very often and has begun to rot.

Provided you are not fearful of heights and are fairly good around the house, even fixing a portion of roof may not be more than you can handle. Just be aware that being up on a housetop can be extremely risky and your home insurance agent might prefer you to get a professional as opposed to being liable for medical bills also if you fall and hurt yourself. If you do try the repairs on your own, be sure you begin early and are going to have a day or two of rain free weather before you start the job.

When you know that the roof is old and if you see it has a large amount of leaks, your easiest answer can be to have the complete house top re-shingled. When there are no issues as yet to the wood under the shingles, this can be less expensive than postponing it and probably having to replace a good amount of the wood also.
