Winter in Minnesota can prove to be brutal on your residential roof. It can affect many of the roof components and cause additional wear and tear on the roofing system. Now that winter is over, you need to prepare your roof for the summer. Although summertime is not as harsh on homes as the winter is, your roof will still have to contend with high temperatures, UV rays, and severe weather. The Construction Group can perform a full residential roofing inspection and make the necessary upgrades to your roof just in time for the hot season. Below is a summary of how we can strengthen your roof’s surface.
What Does a Residential Roofing Inspection Include?
Our roofing inspections are comprehensive. We look for any possible issues across every component, and we don’t miss a thing. We look for the following:
● Missing shingles or panels anywhere along the surface
● Granules in the gutters. The shingles are wearing down.
● Warps or separations in the decking. Warps can allow water or air leaks.
● Exposed nails heads. We replace them with fresh nails.
● Mold or algae buildup. There could be moisture somewhere along the roofing system.
● Proper ventilation. It keeps humidity or condensation from building up.
● Chimneys, skylights, and antennas. Ensure the area around them is sealed.
The Gutter System
In addition to checking the roofing system, we also look at the gutters. The first thing we check is the flow of water throughout the channels. If the gutters are clogged with debris, the water will not flow. Therefore, it will spill over the sides, defeating the purpose of the gutters. We also check to see that the gutters are well connected and in excellent condition. If you don’t have gutter guards, we recommend that you install them. We can implement guards on your current gutters system. Guards will eliminate debris buildup in the channels.
Professional Roofing Maintenance and Repair
If we find any areas that we need to repair, we will let you know by filling out an official report. We will then make recommendations on what we need to do to reinforce your roof and get it ready for summer.
