How do I know if and where my roof is leaking and how do I fix it?
Many homeowners wince at even the thought of having a roof leak in their home as it can be unavoidable and extremely costly to repair. As with many other types of water damage you can experience in your home, the most proactive and first line of defense against a roof leak is an annual and proper inspection by a professional.
A roof inspection by a knowledgeable professional should include, but may not be limited to: shingles, flashings (dormers, valleys, side walls, eaves, and rakes), membranes, gutters, vent pipes, and chimneys. Your home’s roof is an investment and should be treated as such. Along with regular inspections, homeowners can also proactively prevent a leaky roof by removing debris from the roof’s surface and clean out all gutter systems on their home twice a year.
Treat your roof like any other lifelong investment and secure a professional like Maine Moisture Management, LLC to inspect, review, and guide you to prolong the life of your roof.
