5 Important Roof Repairs You should Make Before Summer
Summer weather is making its way to Gauteng, and right now is the best time to make a few repairs on your roofing and home before the hot months arrive. In fact, taking care of these five important repairs during your “spring cleaning” this year can help ensure that your home is ready to withstand even the most punishing summer weather and keep you safe and sound during the upcoming summer season.
Missing and Loose Shingles
One of the easiest roofing problems to spot in general is shingles that are missing. It is also one of the potentially most damaging problems because with shingles missing your roof is open to the weather above and the roofing support structure (the underlayment), and unlike your shingles, it’s not designed to withstand things like rain, hail, and UV rays. Have Tremco roofing contractor come and replace or repair those damaged shingles right away.
Warped or Stained Roofing Tiles
Another obvious sign of distress on your home roofing is stains or areas that show visible signs of warping and sagging. Stains are usually indicative of water damage that has gone beyond the shingles, and warping or sagging probably indicate issues with the support structure underneath. In either case, call a professional roofer to check it out right away.
Structural Roof Repairs
If you have things like chimneys or skylights protruding out of your roofing in Gauteng, that is the most likely place you will find leaks if they are not properly maintained. Be sure to inspect them regularly, or call your roofer Tremco in Gauteng, to make sure there are no problems or to fix any that they find.
The siding on your home is designed to protect it, to look great, and to provide an added layer of insulation. Some of the most common problems that homeowners find with their siding include:
- Missing sections of siding
- Damage to the seals between siding panels
- Insect infestations
- Hail damage
If you see any of these issues, now is the time to repair them, or to call in a professional to help.
