Summer is coming up, and with it will come some of the years harshest weather. Between unforgiving heat and torrential rain, your roof will take quite a beating. It is important to look for some things to make sure your roof is in the proper condition to withstand the summer weather.
- Look for watermarks on the interior walls and ceiling. Watermarks can be yellowish stains, bubbling, or flaking on the walls or ceiling. They indicate that water has already been damaging your roof and a Central NJ roofing contractor should be contacted to make proper repairs. Also be sure to check the attic and seams such as where the chimney is and where any skylights are for more watermarks.
- Wood rot also indicates water damage and shouldn’t be taken lightly. You should inspect the outside of your home and roof for exposed wood to see if rotting is taking place. Also check your roof deck and other areas where wood can begin to rot. Taking care of a wood rot problem early on can end up saving a homeowner thousands in repairs.
- Mold and other harmful fungi. In moist and warm places where ventilation isn’t so prominent, mold can begin to start growing and eating away at your attic walls and framing. Mold is especially bad for people who are allergic to it.
- Look for damaged and missing shingles and tiles. this can also indicate water damage and makes your roof more vulnerable to summer elements. Contact a Central NJ roofing contractor for some roof repairs or even a full replacement if your roof is at the later point of its life.
