How Can You Make Your Roof Last a Long Time

Out of all the parts that make up your home, it's the roof that bears the brunt of the weather. Hence, keeping it in tiptop shape should always be a topmost priority. As a responsible homeowner, you should be knowledgeable of the measures you can take to ensure that your current roof lasts for decades. By exerting some effort on proper roofing care, you've already saved your future self from the hassle of spending time and money on repairs and replacements.

How Can You Make Your Roof Last a Long Time

The Basics of Roof Maintenance

When was the last time you checked your gutters? Fallen leaves and twigs should be regularly removed to avoid clogging and moisture build up. The presence of moss and algae, while not as problematic as leaky gutters, still need to be addressed immediately. Not only are they unsightly to look at, but over time, they can end up trapping water that can lead to moisture damage. This can be remedied by simply sweeping or wiping them off.

Another simple measure that you can do is to listen carefully for weird noises whenever your area is experiencing strong winds or hail storms. We'd recommend calling your trusted roofing company ASAP if something sounds amiss. On the other hand, if the roof sounds intact, you can simply wait until the weather is much better to inspect your roof for damage. Be mindful of loose or missing shingles and damaged flashing since these are potential pathways for water.

When to Ask for Professional Help

The steps mentioned can be done by homeowners themselves, but if you're not comfortable with heights or if you lack the cleaning equipment, don't hesitate to call for experienced roofers to assist you. The advantage of hiring professionals is they will go out of their way to check your roof for other maintenance issues that you might have overlooked. They are also properly trained and equipped to deal with all kinds of roofing problems, ensuring that you won't have to put your own safety at risk.

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof One of the first things we look at when we go to repair or replace any roof is to take a look at the attic. The attic is the foundation of the roof, and if it has any issues, the longevity of your roof is at stake. The Importance of Proper Attic Ventilation Attic ventilation is a crucial component of any roofing job. Without adequate ventilation, your roof is at risk for mold, and no one wants mold in their house. The first step when we meet with the homeowner is to go up in their attic space and determine whether the situation is agreeable or if it needs some work. While in the attic, we also look at the condition of the wood. If the wood itself is in poor condition, we may have to make some repairs there as well. For example, a rotting attic ceiling is not a good foundation for any roof, new or old. It can be hard for some homeowners to hearthat they have mold in their attic, but it is important to know if it is there because it is unhealthy

Do You Have aLeaking Chimney orAnother Chimney Issue? Is a Leaking Chimney a Roofing Issue? One of the most frequent calls that we get here at West Side Roofing is about chimneys. It is not uncommon that over time a chimney will begin to leak, especially brick chimneys. Because a chimney is part of the roof, people will assume that we are equipped to fix that leak. Though this leakage is usually attributed to a masonry issue, we can still help identify and inform you about why this happens. We speak the masonry language, but we are not equipped to make those repairs. What is Chimney Flashing? However, sometimes there is a chimney issue that we can help you with, and that is with the flashing along the bottom of the chimney where it meets the roof. In the first example in the video, you can see that there were some pretty large cracks in the actual brick of the chimney which we recommended the owner have a mason come out and fix that. But their flashing was also coming apart as
