Get Reliable Roof Maintenance to Prevent the Need for Roofing Repair


Minor problems with the roof on your home or business can result in a number of more serious issues if you don’t address them in a timely manner. You can nip these minor problems in the bud with regular scheduled roof maintenance from Wharry Engineering. Our team of roofing experts can identify and rectify these minor issues before larger leaks allow water into your building to slowly wear away at the structure and compromise the overall safety of the building. You should also know how to identify these issues, yourself, so you can request repairs as quickly as possible. In today’s post, we will discuss the sorts of roof issues that can jeopardize the overall structure of your roof.

Obvious Major Damage

There are times in which it is easy to notice and identify damage to your roof. Missing shingles, curled up shingles, areas of discoloration…issues like this can be seen with the naked eye and won’t necessarily require a professional to find them. You should inspect your roof at least once every six months and be sure to call Wharry Engineering to schedule roof maintenance for a thorough inspection of your roof to keep any damage under control.

Pooled or Accumulated Water

If you should notice moisture or water starting to pool or accumulate on your roof, you need to note the important details, like where the accumulation is, how much there is, and how it is entering the building. You may also notice a damaged seal that allows the water to enter, and the water may even cause shallow depressions on the roof. With this information at our disposal, we can inspect the roof and get to the bottom of the issue that is causing the accumulation of water.

Check Vents, Seams, and Other Components of Your Roof

Many roof issues stem from areas in which roofing elements come together as a seam, like vents, leaky seals, the chimney, or other cracks. While the spaces these elements create are small, even the smallest openings can let in a lot of water. By performing simple maintenance, we can identify these areas and complete the work necessary to prevent them from causing more serious damage, including the growth of mold and bacteria that can create serious health issues.
