Roof replacement San Mateo
Keeping your roof and rain gutters free of debris is also very important for maintaining a leak free roof. Whenever debris accumulates on the roof, it creates a barrier to the natural flow of rain. This can push water sideways, causing it to flow under shingles or flashings and over the top of nails and fasteners, eventually causing a leak.
Debris build up usually occurs behind chimneys, skylights, walls, vents and pipes. It also accumulates in valleys, crickets and in low sloped areas. Debris build up will also promote the growth of moss and wood destroying organisms, causing most roofing systems to break down and fail prematurely.
It’s a good idea to inspect the roof several times during the year, especially in Winter and Spring, and then clear it off as needed. All of the leaves don’t fall at the same time, so one cleaning may not be enough.
Many types of roofs can be damaged by inexperienced people walking on them or working from them, and there is the danger of slipping or falling. If roof damage occurs, you are much more likely to develop a leak, so make sure it is an experienced person on your roof.
Clogged downspouts create many roof and gutter related problems, and the extra weight can also cause them to sag or even fall down. Usually downspouts can be cleared by just removing the debris from the gutter, but sometimes a blast of water is needed. For severe clogs you may have to remove the downspout and clean out the impacted material.
Most houses have an eave overhang and therefore an overflowing gutter is not a threat to cause water entry into the home, but it can damage the overhang. For houses that do not have an overhang at the roof line, clear gutters and downspouts are even more critical.
It is very important that individuals check their roof for needed repairs regularly. Most opt for spring because of the fair weather and due to the fact that spring storms and heavy rains make you think more about your roof’s integrity.
Our fair weather in California provides year-round opportunities for you to replace or repair your roof, so don’t wait for the problem to cause any damage.
