Well, it’s hurricane season 2016! In recent years, Central Jersey has been getting hit by more and more hurricanes. Many roofs aren’t up to date with proper repairs, and are at huge risk of serious hurricane damage. Here are some things you can do to help protect your roof from this year’s hurricane season.
Roofing Contractor Tips-
Preparing for a Storm
- Inspect your roof. Look for shingles that are loose, missing or damaged. Also, look to make sure all of the nails are in place to keep your shingles secure. This is especially important on the edges. You may want to consider hiring a professional Monmouth Junction roofing contractor to do this job thoroughly. It’s not an expansive job. Also check from the inside of your attic. See if there’s any light shining through from outside because this means your roof is very vulnerable to heavy wind and rain. Check for water damage and rot that is already present as well.
- Start making minor repairs and replacements. Replace missing nails, damaged and missing shingles, and rotted wood. Use roofing cement on the edges of the shingles assuring that they will stay in place. These jobs can be much more painless by contacting a roofing company.
- Consider getting metal hurricane clips installed by a roofer to connect the roof to the walls for even more support.
Taking these steps can not only really help your roof survive through the next hurricane, but having a secure and stable roof can even help lower your homeowners insurance. Contact a Monmouth Junction roofing contractor and see how they can help your roof remain in one piece as this year’s storm season passes.
