Your roof is one of the most important components of your home. It keeps you warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and safe during every month of the year. If your roof experiences any damage, the problems could quickly build, and you might be facing a big repair bill. You might even have to replace the entire thing if your existing roof is not in good condition. Of course, we all want to prevent that from happening. A roof inspection after the summer ends and before the winter weather arrives can be so helpful. It can ensure that concerns are addressed quickly.
Common Roof Problems
Here in Reno, our homes go through a lot. The summers can be quite hot and dry, and the winter temperatures can drop down pretty low. Snow and ice sometimes need to be addressed as well. Further, a rainstorm can quickly become a downpour. If you’re having an issue with your roof, water may get into your home, and animals and debris may also get inside. You really don’t want any of these issues, so that’s why you should have our team at Joe’s Roofing look for the following:
- Loose, missing, or curling shingles
- Leaks or cracks
- Debris in your gutters
- Loose or missing flashing
In addition, we can keep an eye out for any areas that may be sagging or dropping. This would indicate a structural problem of some sort.
What we just mentioned are common situations that we see fairly frequently on properties around Reno. Roofs don’t last forever, and they wear down over time. Sometimes, the problem is evident to the homeowner, who doesn’t even have to climb a ladder to notice that something isn’t right. In other situations, it requires a close inspection to reveal a potential issue.
End of Summer Preparations
As the weather changes at the end of the summer, you’ll want to get ready for the upcoming seasons. In the autumn, a lot of leaves can fall, making it harder to see what’s going on. These leaves can also tend to clog gutters, and if there already is an issue with a gutter, this could be a troubling situation. In the winter, there could be snowstorms that your roof will have to withstand. Since the temperatures can often rise during the day and drop below freezing at night, ice can build up in certain places. A roof needs to have the right integrity in order to deal with all of this.
It’s a smart idea to have us take a look at your roof so that any small concerns can be addressed right away. Call us at Joe’s Roofing to schedule a roof inspection.
