A Sound Roof is Essential to the Health and Safety of your Room

The heating and air costs of your home depend upon the quality of your roof. It keeps your home warm, comfortable are moisture-free. But if the roofing is providing its best it could affect the infrastructure of your house and causes damage to your health as the moisture can easily seep in because of poor roof performance. Early detection of the problem can help you in saving money and provide you with more options.

Can’t I Just Check My Roof Myself?

Yes! You can. And it can be considered a good idea if you are willing to climb the ladder and look at your Jackson MS roof under safety measures. There are the following safety measures you must keep in your mind:

  • Examine the condition and the position of your ladder first.
  • Avoid wearing shoes like flip-flops or sandals, use closed-toe shoes instead.
  • Always try to inspect with another person. So, he can hold the ladder for you and wait for you until the inspection is done.
  • Avoid climbing the roof if it is wet or icy.
  • To avoid any injury tie yourself with something firm on the roof using a safety harness. It can save you from injury and hospitalization expenses.

What should I look for?

If you are comfortable with the general inspection of your roof by yourself there are the following things of which you should look for:

  • Obvious leaks

If you observe some leaking in your roof that means you should pinpoint that leak of the roof if you can. If your roof is allowing water to get in, then there must be some problem with your roof.

  • Shingle condition

In case you have a shingle roof, you should search for wrapped, broken, loose, or missing shingles on your roof. If you find any of this or decking you should take some actions against it

  • Granule loss

You should also notice the quantity of the granules that your roof is shedding as losing granules can lead to the disability to protect your roof.

  • Gutter flow

Make sure to look for blocked gutters as they can cause the backup of water which can affect the quality of the roof and can also damage the internal structure of the building.

  • Visible Nails

Visible nails are the indication that may be the installation of your roof is not proper. Furthermore, it can also cause leaks of the roofs.

  • Previous repairs

You should keep the previously repaired areas of your roof, especially in your mind during the inspection of your roof.

But what if I miss something?

 The probability of you missing something during the inspection of your roof is still there even if you do it daily especially if you are not a roofing expert. Even if you can easily climb the ladder and inspect the roof that doesn’t mean you can examine everything. What should be done then? Ask for a professional roofing expert and set a time for a professional inspection.
