Seattle winters can be very harsh, as we all know. Are you relieved that it is nearly over? Even though winter may be passing, the harm it caused might still be having an impact on your home today. Did your roof make it through this winter unharmed? The only way to be certain is to look for the typical indications of roofing damage.
Here are 5 great tips from Four Seasons Roofing for springtime roof inspections:
1. Look for water leaks on your ceilings
Water is a threat. There is undoubtedly a leak in your home if you see water. Always look for water leaks in your ceilings. Make sure to inspect your home’s ceilings on every level. The ceiling of your upper level typically develops water stains and moisture buildup as a result of roof leaks. This is a dead giveaway that your roof is malfunctioning. It might be shingles or flashing that are broken, among other things.
2. Check for wet spots in your attic
Even if there are no visible indications of water leaks on your ceiling, they may still be present. Perhaps they simply haven’t gotten all the way down to your ceiling yet. You can learn a lot about the condition of your roof by inspecting it from the inside through your attic. Inspect your roof on a bright day, so that you can see the sun shining through any holes. Additionally, it’s important to search for wet areas and evidence suggesting moisture.
3. From the outside, inspect all your home’s sides for shingle damage
One of the most frequent springtime roofing problems that homeowners encounter is missing and damaged shingles. Shingles can also be damaged by high winds, ice, snow, and water. When shingles are damaged or missing, water can enter your roof and cause harm to your house. To make sure you don’t have any missing shingles, inspect your roof from all angles.
4. Make sure your downspouts and gutters are working
If they aren’t blocked, downspouts and gutters can help move water off your roof and away from your house. Make sure your gutters are clear of obstructions and effectively channeling water away from your roof.
5. Have a professional inspect your roof
Having your roof inspected by a professional is the best course of action. A self-check is a good place to start, but experts have the right diagnostic equipment, expertise, and know-how. They are aware of common roof weaknesses and how to spot warning signs of problems with the roof. You can have peace of mind knowing for sure if you have a roof leak by having a professional inspection performed.
