Even though your home’s roof is built to last, there are specific areas that are more susceptible to wear and tear due to exposure to the elements. Recognizing and addressing these vulnerable spots is essential for cost-effective maintenance and repair. Knox’s Construction has identified the typical problematic areas found on your roof.
Roof flashings, thin strips of material covering interruptions in your roof’s structure, play a crucial role in preventing water infiltration. Despite their durable construction, constant exposure to moisture causes them to degrade faster than other roofing components. After a storm, it’s crucial to inspect and maintain your roof flashings to safeguard against water damage to vulnerable roof areas.
The fascia boards, known as the roofline, are positioned close to the gutters, making them susceptible to elemental damage. Overflowing gutters can lead to water damage to the roofline. Additionally, blockages can exert excessive weight on the gutters, straining the roofline and causing physical damage. It’s important to address these issues promptly to maintain the integrity of your roof’s edge.
The soffit, the soft underside of your roof that hangs over the underlying structure, lacks a protective covering, making it prone to damage, especially from moisture. Neglecting the soffit’s upkeep can result in ventilation and insulation problems within your home. Our recommendation is to have the soffit inspected by professionals to ensure proper maintenance and prevent potential issues.
