If you’re like most homeowners, you probably don’t think about your roof until there’s a problem. And by then, it’s often too late. Leaks can cause extensive damage to your home and can be expensive to repair.

But there are things you can do to help prevent roofing leaks. Here are some tips from Gutter Cap Birmingham, a remodeler serving the greater Birmingham AL area:

– Make sure your roof is properly ventilated. Lack of ventilation can cause your roof to overheat and can lead to leaks.

– Inspect your roof regularly and look for signs of wear and tear. Our colleagues at the Dayton OH roofing company DryTech Exteriors recommend looking for granules in your gutters as a clear sign of wear and tear!

– Make sure the roofing materials are properly installed and sealed.

– Install gutter guards to help keep leaves and debris from clogging your gutters and causing water to back up and leak into your home.

– Install a roof cap to prevent snow and ice from building up on your roof and causing leaks.

If you’re experiencing a roofing leak, don’t wait. Contact a roofing contractor right away to have the leak repaired.
