Many homeowners don’t really pay attention to their roofing until they experience problems with it. Unfortunately, when they reach this point, it’s usually too late since extensive damage has occurred and major repairs are needed. Because of this, it’s important to do roofing maintenance on a regular basis. You can do this on your own but, if you don’t have the time or energy, you can always rely on a residential roofing service expert.
If you live in Morrisville, NC, you’ll want to get help of Morrisville Topside Construction Inc. We have years of experience with providing professional maintenance services and have helped many homeowners with keeping their roofing in great shape. When you hire us to be your residential roofer, we’ll provide you with the following solutions:
Examine the shingles — These materials are exposed to extreme temperatures, so they understandably go through a lot of wear and tear and develop issues after several years. We’ll check if all of your roofing shingles are present and if they show signs of damage, and we’ll replace all missing, cracked, and curling shingles.
Inspect all flashing — Roof flashing are designed to be sturdy and long-lasting, but they can still incur damage over time. Because of this, we make it a point to check the flashing in chimneys, vents, and other areas, replace their caulk when needed, and take other steps to prevent leaks from developing.
Check for moss and algae — These microorganisms don’t just make your property look unsightly. They can also slowly degrade shingles and other materials, making them weaker and more prone to damage and decreasing their lifespan. If your roofing is covered with moss and/or algae, we’ll use soft-bristled brushes and safe cleansers to remove the growth without damaging the shingles. We’ll also install zinc or copper sheets to prevent future growth.
Look for rusted areas — We’ll inspect all the metal parts of your roofing to see if they’ve developed rust and corrosion. If they have, we’ll remove the rusted areas then prime and paint them to prevent future damage.
