3 Roof Damage Red Flags to Keep an Eye Out for This Storm Season

StormThe roof is arguably the most important aspect of a house. It has to function properly to keep your family within warm, safe, and dry. But exposure to storms over time can cause damage to a roof. So watch out for these red flags to know when your roof needs a repair or replacement.

#1 Water Stains

When water seeps into a house, it causes stains on the ceilings or walls. Sometimes it takes weeks or months for the water to reach the point that it stains, but when it does, you need to pay attention.

#2 Cracked, Broken or Curling Shingles

Over time, exposure to sun and severe weather can cause roofing shingle material to break down. Periodically do a roof inspection. Look up, perhaps with a good set of binoculars, and check for shingles that are curling, cracked, or broken. They are easy to spot and may indicate that the roof is aging. Curling shingles can’t channel water properly and may cause it to pool and seep into the house.

#3 Wind and Hail

After a storm is a great time to do a roof inspection. Debris falling on the roof, strong winds, and hail can inflict serious damage. Even a relatively new roof is susceptible to extreme wind which can get under the shingles and lift them, causing a break in the coverage to the roof. Hail or debris can hit the roof hard enough to cause breaks or cracks in the shingles.

If you notice any of these roof damage red flags, or just want to have your roof inspected to make sure it is in good shape, call Premiere Roofing today. Our roofing experts will provide a thorough examination to give you peace of mind knowing your family is safe inside.

Have You Completed Your Fall Home Checklist? How to Prepare Your Home for Winter Weather

The days are starting to get shorter which means it’s time to start thinking about preparing your home for winter. Follow this handy fall home checklist to make sure you’re ready when the cold weather sets in.

#1 Roof and Chimney

If you don’t want to get up on the roof, get a pair of binoculars and scan it carefully. Check for loose, cracked, buckling, or missing shingles. Examine the flashing around the chimney for rust and deterioration. Have the chimney cleaned and inspected by a licensed chimney sweep. Around the vent pipes on the roof, the rubber collar can crack and wear out. All of these are potential areas for water to seep in and create damage to the attic, or worse, the interior ceilings and walls.

#2 Leaves, Limbs, and Gutters

Prune any overhanging limbs that might potentially fall on the house. These might also allow squirrels and other critters access to your attic. Rake the leaves and clean out the gutters and downspouts. Clogged gutters weighed down with leaves and debris can cause tremendous water damage to a house.

#3 Water, Hoses, and Sprinklers

Detach hoses, drain them, and put them away. If the water freezes inside them, they will be useless next spring. Turn off the exterior faucets and drain them as well. Finally, turn off and drain the lawn sprinkler system.

#4 Prepare for Heating Your Home

Have the furnace tuned up, order firewood, and caulk and seal any leaks around doors and windows that are going to let heat escape from the house.
