Tips For Checking On Your Kingwood Roof After A Storm
Now that it’s peak hurricane season, most of us are anticipating heavy storms at some point or another. While many roofers go door-to-door to offer a roof inspection, some of these are actually running roofing scams that you need to avoid. Rather than putting your home (and your wallet) at further risk, our Houston roof experts will teach you about what you can do to check and protect your roof after a storm.
Once A Storm Has Passed, Check Your Attic
Rather than immediately climbing onto your roof while it’s still slippery and dangerous, we recommend going into your attic right after a storm to see if there are any roof leaks. To determine if you have a Kingwood roof leak, you should look for dripping water, puddles, staining along the walls, as well as damp insulation, or even warping. If you discover signs of a leak, it’s important to speak with our Houston roof experts in case there is further damage that may have taken place, warranting a Kingwood roof replacement.
Perform Adequate Kingwood Roof Maintenance
Once the storm has passed, our Kingwood roofing company recommends you grab a ladder and climb up to your gutters. From here, start with some roof maintenance tasks by clearing the gutters of any leaves, twigs, or other debris. This will ensure proper drainage of water away from your roof so that it doesn’t settle and weigh down your roof shingles, as this will cause dipping and other Kingwood roof damage that, left unaddressed, will lead to a dire need for Kingwood roof replacement.
