the well-known saying
“be grateful for the roof over your head.”
In making sure that you still have a roof to be grateful for, it is wise to make sure to use its maximum lifespan. Whether you are a business or a homeowner in Conway, all different various roof types need regular roofing services and maintenance. Take note that roof replacement and repairs can be one of the expensive costs that a building or a homeowner may incur.
Roofs protect structures from the sun, rain, and wind. They are subjected to damage and wear and tear. Even with this knowledge, roofs are often overlooked. We at P.I. Roofing, recommend that roof inspections need to be done on your roofing at least twice a year. Our roofing experts in Conway will take the time to look for signs of damage or decay and assess your roof if it needs to be repaired or replaced.
In inspecting your roof, here are some details that you need to take note:
1. Roof Interior.
Inside the roof, it is important to inspect timber beams. Cracking and areas of mold or rot are indications that there is damage to the beams, and they need to be either maintained or replaced. It is not advisable to paint over them as this will only worsen the damage worse over time. Make sure that the waterproofing inside the roof is covering all open areas and that there is no damage to the waterproofing. Check your plumbing, electricals, and in the roof as well. Leaks that go undetected can seep into the roof interior and damage concrete roof slabs and rust metal, making them weak and unreliable.
2. Roof Exterior
The roof exterior is the part of the roof that is exposed to the outside world. There are different things to consider depending on the type of material the roof is made from. For example, roof tiles are prone to cracking, while metal roofs sheet and screws can become loose. These instances of damage allow water to seep to the roof interior and cause damage to the underlying roof structures.
Also, make sure to inspect your roof after any severe windstorm of hurricane. Make sure to search for any open areas after the installation of antennas and chimneys. For flat roofs, ponding or prolonged standing water puddles can lead to the premature aging of the roof cover.
Make sure you inspect timber trusses if they are exposed to the elements as they can be prone to rotting and collapse. Ensure that there is no debris or heavy dirt accumulated on the roof as this can weigh down the roof materials and cause the tiles to crack or the material to become damaged.
3. The Ceiling Inside the House or Building
Some issues that can be seen from inside the house or the building would mean that there has already been a significant amount of damage to both the exterior and interior of the roof. Signs that can be seen inside the house or the building include cracks, water stains, or bubbles. This indicates that there is water collecting inside the roof. Even the smallest crack can lead to the biggest problems. Peeling paint can also be an indication of water damage inside the roof.
