How To Prevent Your Roof From Leaking

Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in .

Your home’s roof is more important to it than you might think! It’s an important line of defense between the inside and the unpredictable weather conditions that New England is known for. However, your roof isn’t indestructible; it can be prone to problems, and perhaps the most serious of them is roof leaks! Roof leaks can cause serious damage to your home. The best way to prevent this problem from happening is to enact some preventative measures. What can you do to prevent your roof from leaking? We give you some helpful tips below!

Increase Your Attic Ventilation

Did you know that one of the main issues that cause roof leaks can be tied back to your attic? You should know by now that heat rises, and a majority of that is going to go through your attic. Take some time to measure the temperature and humidity of your attic. Is it significantly higher than the other rooms in your house? It may be a sign of poor ventilation! Make sure that your attic is properly insulated before the seasons change. It can go a long way to keeping your roof healthy!

Conduct Regular Roof Inspections

Another big cause of roof leaks is a lack of maintenance on them. You should be trying to inspect your roof on a regular basis. Otherwise, small problems can go unnoticed, and these issues can balloon into bigger ones down the road! Broken and missing shingles can be commonplace on many residential roofs, and these can be prime targets for roofing leaks. The more you maintain your roof, the quicker you’ll be able to identify problems and fix them. A healthy roof is one that is regularly maintained!

Keep Your Gutters Clear Of Debris

Your roof and your gutters have a special relationship when it comes to protecting your home’s exterior! Your gutter system helps to promote water flow away from the roof and your home. If this system is compromised, water can pool up on your roof and lead to a leak! There are a few proven ways that you can keep your gutters clean. You can perform regular maintenance on them and clean the debris each time it accumulates, or you can install gutter guards on your roof to prevent debris from ever clogging the gutters. Your roof and gutters go hand in hand with their protection of your home!

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
