The roof is an integral part of any house. But just like any other part of your house, the roof is also susceptible to damages and leaks. Major leaks and damages can be repaired with the help of a professional roofer, but you can take care of the minor defects all by yourself. Here are 10 quick tips about roof repair:

1) Roofing Contractors Wheeler Army Airfield HI 96854 Think of safety first

Trying to locate a leak as soon as it happens can land you in a hospital. Going up on a roof that is fully covered with snow is not the best way to find a leak. In fact, you should avoid doing the same while it is raining. When you try to temporarily mend a leak, it can Wheeler Army Airfield HI 96854 prove to be very dangerous. There is no known quick-fix solution to any roofing problem. Take your time, be patient and wait for the perfect weather to do the fixing.

3) Spray the roof

Take the garden hose in your hands and go on the roof and begin spraying in various locations across the roof to locate the leak. However, this policy is good in summers only and do not ever think of doing it during wintertime as it Wheeler Army Airfield HI 96854 is never safe to spray water on the roof in freezing temperatures.

4) Keep the gutters clean

The most common cause of a roof leak is the clogged gutter. A clogged gutter will always cause buildup of water whenever there is a reasonable amount of rainfall.

5) Avoid dry rot

This problem is not exactly related to water damage but mainly due to shortage of Wheeler Army Airfield HI 96854 ventilation. If the repair is right at the center of the roof then it is most likely due to deterioration of the plywood. If it is so, then the roof will begin to sag and the shingles will begin to become brittle, cracked and will eventually start to leak. If you hope to prevent dry rot then you need to install Wheeler Army Airfield HI 96854 a ridge vent. However, this ridge vent will only function when a soffit vent is installed.

6) Prevent the buildup of ice

During winter, ice can easily build up under the gutters, shingles and the roof membrane.

Wheeler Army Airfield HI 96854 To take care of this problem, you need to install a drip ridge along with ice and rain shields and proper ventilation.

7) Fix the roof boots

Skylights are obvious places for leaks, but one thing we miss is the necessity of having rubber boots. You can purchase a new pair of roof boots at any hardware store.

8) Inspect the materials

If the shingles Wheeler Army Airfield HI 96854 are faulty then they will start to crack even after they have been successfully nailed down. Faulty installation with shingles and nails play a big part in leaks. If the nails are nailed too low then they will start pushing up. So do check your equipment before getting on the roof.

9) Check valleys

The intersection where the two roofs come together is Wheeler Army Airfield HI 96854 known as a valley. These are known to be very common places for leaks because this is the place where the water from the roof accumulates and it will eventually start sloshing.
