southlake roofing preventive storm maintenance

Although putting a tarp up on the roof during a severe storm might not help much except to cover some of the holes that area already there, keeping your roof safe during a storm can be done through preventive maintenance and repairs by a Southlake roofing contractor. If you live in an area where storms are strong and frequent, you will definitely want to make sure that your roof is in good condition and capable of withstanding the brunt of those storms, whether they involve hail, thunder and lightning or extreme winds.


No one can guarantee that your roof will hold properly in a hurricane, but for milder storms there is a lot of hope. The first measure you can take is to have a roof inspection before the rainy season to make sure everything is in its place. Expect to pay for small repairs like broken shingles and damaged flashing, and to have to clean your roof or remove at least some of the larger debris from the roof and gutter systems.


Another good method to prevent roof damage is to check for leaks. You might need to climb up to the attic for this, as the subtle damage that is the origin of some leaks might not be easily spotted from the outside. If you find where the water ends up, you can at least narrow down your search and get a general idea of where the leak came from and what needs to be done about it.
