Tips on Roofing Repairs for a Drier Spring


During mild spring days, your roof takes a stock of storm and some water damage. Most houses sustain at least a few of such problems during the winter months. So toy should take early precautions and save a lot of bucks.

Check the roof:
Have a roof flashing, caulking and shingles inspected in preparation for the spring storms. Check for shingles on the planes of the roof on the ridges. The areas with flashing should definitely we sealed with any approved roofing sealant.

Repair water stained ceilings:
Paining a roof leak does not stop the leak. The yellow or brown stain that was present will appear on the new paint again. Simply seal the stain with a good quality stain sealer and then only repaint the ceiling.

Fix damaged roofing:
Look for spots on the roof that are damaged or are likely to be damaged in the new weather. If it is not damaged too much, you could fix it yourself. If the roofing is damaged heavily, it is strongly advised that you should call a well renowned roofers to fix your roof. They will check and fix your roof in no time.

Fix leaking roof flashing:
Flashing are metal strips that seals and prevents rain water seeping under the shingles and reaching your ceiling. Wind and other weather conditions can loosen the flashing. Most of the serious roof leaks are caused by improper or broken roof flashing that is installed, rather that damaged or missing shingles. The damaged roof flashing should be repaired or replaced, whichever is necessary.


Repair rotted woodwork:
Wood sills take serious damage from all types of weathers. This results in the wood to rod. One should use epoxy wood filler to repair the rotted area. Soak the entire wood rotted area with liquid epoxy. This will transform the rotted area into a sturdy base for the filler. The wood will absorb the liquid epoxy in about five minutes. Keep repeating this activity until the wood cannot take any more of the liquid epoxy. This should make a strong base and paint the area in three days.

Clean the roof gutters:
The gutter system in the roof was designed to remove water from the roof in order to prevent water pooling and moisture build-up. This prevents damage to the home’s original structure and also discourages any moisture related moss growth. Dirty and unmaintained gutters can reduce the lifespan of your roof. It is critical that you should clean your gutters. Regularly check the gutters and remove any stray leaves, twigs or dirt. After cleaning the gutters, it is advisable to trim any trees or large branches beside your house.

How to avoid the mistakes


Proper roof decking
We initially start roofing by roof decking. It is like a basement or foundation for roof. It should be constructed carefully so that we can fix remaining roof also properly. Fixing of shingles depends on the decking as they will be fixed on the decking. Make sure the decking is done in such a way that the roof will not be affected by moisture.

Fixing shingles
Shingles we use should be new and with high quality. Shingles should be fixed without any gaps so that any moisture or dirt doesn’t accumulate in the gaps and damage the roof.

Nailing process
To fix the nails fast, we shouldn’t use short nails. We should use the nails in such a way that the shingles are fixed in to the deck properly. This will avoid loosening of shingles.

Usage of low quality flashing or old flashing
There may be a chance that any material other than metal for flashing would be incompletion of roof as it acts as moisture barrier. Usually flashes are fixed in such areas like chimneys, skylights, roof valleys etc. There shouldn’t be any gaps while fixing flashes. Old flashes should not be used by patching, cutting edges etc. Replacing also should be done with new ones.

Proper usage of roof overhang
Though it gives a good look to the house, we should take care while overhanging the eaves. Roof should be properly overhung. It provides protection from wind.

Protect the roof from moisture
Basically, we observe moisture at many places in our house. That is because there may be mistakes in the construction of a roof. The roof should be in such a way that rain, ice, and snow etc should not affect it. There shouldn’t be any place for them to enter the house. Hence the roof shouldn’t have gaps.

Providing proper ventilation
When there is no proper flow of air in to the house, there is a chance of moist in house. Moisture damages the entire house. Hence we need proper ventilation so that the air flow will be there.
