NC Rebuild, Inc. is a fiber cement siding repair and asphalt shingle roofing expert. Having worked with asphalt roofs for many years, we’ve determined that regular roof inspections and maintenance will prolong the life span of your roofing system. They will reverse the effects of weather damage and other factors that affect the conditions of asphalt roofs.
Here’s a look at a few of those conditions.
Clogged gutters can overflow and cause steady damage to many parts of your home. The overflowing water can seep underneath your shingles and damage the underlayment. It can stain your siding and damage your landscaping. It can also saturate the ground around your foundation. You can avoid this by regular gutter cleaning and maintenance. You can also upgrade to our seamless gutters and gutter protection system. This will prevent debris from clogging your gutters and downspouts.
Overhanging Tree Branches
As a home repair services provider, NC Rebuild, Inc. recommends trimming tree branches hanging over your roof. They can cause abrasions that will damage your asphalt shingles. Even worse, strong winds can blow tree branches on your roof and crack your shingles. Keep them at least 10 feet away from your roof. Hire an expert to do it for you.
Ice dams can damage your roof and cause water leakage—especially during winter. Prevent this by removing the snow on your roof after heavy snowfall. Also, keep your attic insulated and well-ventilated. An attic with poor insulation and ventilation will heat up because of your HVAC system. This will cause snow on your roof to melt and form ice dams on the edge of your roof.
