With spring approaching, many homeowners are wondering if their roof is strong enough to withstand the rainy season. Rain can cause overflowed walkway drains and gutters which can damage your home’s foundation. Fortunately, you can learn how to prepare your home for the rainy season to avoid any potential major damages to your roof. Here’s how Mighty Metal Roofing can help you better prepare your home for this upcoming spring.
Tackling Tears and HolesA small hole in your roof that is left untreated, could potentially cause significant structural damage to your home in the rainy season. If not repaired immediately, water could start seeping directly into your home. As a result of this, your home could develop the growth of mold and mildew. Additionally, rain could cause wood rot and water damage to your attics and ceilings. If a small hole is exposed to more rain or wind, it will start growing and end up causing you more problems. To avoid having to replace your entire roof, you should always tackle any problems as soon as you notice them.
Replace Any Missing ShinglesWind can potentially blow shingles off of any older or low-quality roof. Missing shingles can cause flooding to your roof the next time it rains. Excess rain and water could lead to water-logging, which could cause damaged drywall, wood rot, and mold. If you happen to notice any crumbling or curling on your shingles, then it is time to get them replaced. One of the easiest ways to spot this is to check your gutters. If your gutter guards have any asphalt particles trapped inside, then it means you have chipped shingles and need new ones. To avoid damaging your roof even more, it’s always best to call the experts to prevent any further damage.
Repairing Granule LossThe bond between asphalt and granules can weaken over time, causing the granules to loosen. Even the smallest amount of rain can wash them away, pushing them into your gutters. Once this happens, your shingles are at risk of being torn off due to the lack of protection which could leave you with expensive repairs. Additionally, debris can go straight into your gutters and clog them.
Metal Roofs Protect Against RainMetal roofs can withstand nearly any type of weather condition, and the rain is just one out of a few. They are known for their resistance to rotting, leaking, and molding. These roofs not only last considerably longer than asphalt shingles, but they are also noted for its longevity in general. These features are especially attractive against the rain because unlike missing or damaged shingles, there is no worry about rain and wind conditions causing more destruction. Rain easily drains swiftly from a metal roof and can even withstand a hailstorm with no problems.
