Check for leaks before they happen. Even minor roof leaks that go unnoticed can become a big problem when a major weather event or storm hits. To detect leaks, look on interior walls and ceilings for stains and water damage that indicate a leak occurred. You can also call us for a free roofing system evaluation, particularity if your roof is over 25 years old.
Keep nature in check. Fallen tree branches or those that scrape against a roof can cause significant damage. Cut back large branches extending over roofs, and have a professional inspect your property for trees that should be removed altogether. Also, clean out gutters clogged with leaves, branches, or debris. Clogs can prevent water from draining properly.
Do preventive maintenance. Most leaks occur where roofs meet sidewalls and around penetrations such as skylights, vent pipes and chimneys. Contact M. Barboza & Son's Roofing and we will make the needed repairs before the winter or storm season arrives.
