A spring roof inspection can extend the life of a roof. The heaviest rainfall in the San Francisco Bay area occurs from November through March. After several months of heavy rain, a roof can take a beating.
“If there is no regular maintenance to a roof every 5 to 6 years, a roof can develop leaks, no roof is indestructible. An annual inspection can keep a roof functioning and in good condition,” said Raul Diaz, owner of Bay Valley Contractors.
Heavy rainfall and wind are not kind to a hard working roof. Other environmental factors like mildew, algae or moss can eat through roofing materials in a short amount of time. Regularly clearing leaves and debris off the roof, can prevent the erosion of roofing materials.
The majority of roof leaks can be found around intersections or seems in wood, shingles or flashing. Problem areas typically include; chimneys, sky lights and roof valleys. Flashing is aluminum or galvanized steel used to place over angles or joints to prevent water from seeping in to the home from the roof. Poor installation of flashing can often contribute to leaks and should be checked.
Missing or cracked roof tiles or shingles require repair. If neglected, water can easily seep in and cause a leek. “A roof more than 20 years old is damaged and badly worn and most likely will need replaced,” said Raul. If a roof is sound, shingles and tiles can be easily repaired.
