Prevent Roof Leaks

11/15/2019 (Permalink)

Are you prepared for the rain? Many residence experience a roof leak during rainy season. Here are a few tips to help prevent your home from experiencing a roof leak:

  • Get regular roof inspections
  • Pay attention to roof flashing
  • Do not block ventilation
  • Maintain gutters
  • Keep trees away from home
  • Replace missing or torn shingles IMMEDIATELY

Getting a professional to inspect your roof can help prevent a roof leak as they have the ability to spot signs of early damage. If there are no tight flashings around vents or wall/roof junctions, water can enter the home and cause damage. Attic ventilation will help prevent home from damage caused by moisture and mold. Improper ventilation caused heat and moisture to build up causing damage to insulation, rotting, and shingles to buckle. Keep gutters and downspouts unclogged to prevent water from backing up under the roof material. Keep trees trimmed and away from home to keep gutters clean. Maintain your roof to prevent any damage.

If you experience a roof leak, SERVPRO of Mission Viejo is always here to help. We will come to your service immediately and help get your roof covered as soon as possible to help prevent any further damage.
