TIP! Each year, take a long, hard look at your roof. A roof will suffer the most damage during winter and springtime.

Maintaining your roof regularly is definitely not fun but it is necessary. It’s all too easy to procrastinate these laborious chores. But, roof maintenance is something that must never be postponed. Your roof gives your home the best protection against the elements, so you have to do all you can to ensure your roof is in sound condition. This article can show you the way.

TIP! Make sure that you replace your shingles when they become worn. It may seem okay to hold back on fixing small problems, but those small problems can balloon into giant issues.

Sometimes shingles leak, but the foundation can leak too. Dry rot in siding can lead to leaks. Go over each and every potential entry point, especially rotting wood, to make sure the issue has been resolved completely.

TIP! Check both the roof’s foundation and the shingles when you notice a leak. Water can leak into your home through dry-rotted siding.

Fix any and all leaks on the first try. If you find one leak, it’s likely that others exist as well. It is important that you determine the entire extent of the problem before beginning repairs.

TIP! Safety is priority one when roof repair is involved. You can be seriously injured by attempting to fix your roof under severe weather conditions.

If you have already called a roofing contractor, but he is not scheduled to visit for a few days, you should try to provide yourself with a temporary fix for your leaking roof. You can nail heavy plastic to damaged areas. This isn’t the best way to manage leaks, but it can help you out in a pinch.

TIP! Don’t try to fix any roof when the weather conditions are poor. Slippery roofs can mean major falls.

Unless you are required to, do not pay up front. Offer a quarter of the total cost before they start work; avoid paying more. But paying the whole amount up front can cause the roofer to do less than they agreed to, or poor work.

TIP! If a roofing salesman is giving you a high pressure pitch, tell him no thank you and show him out of your home. Some of them will do whatever it takes to get your signature on a contract.

Once you have narrowed down your list of potential contractors, ask them what kind of warranties are available. The warranty should last at least three years. The longer it lasts, the better. The warranty needs to cover defective materials and poor installation. You should receive a copy of the manufacturer’s warranty too.

Make sure a roofing contractor has current, valid certifications. Roofers should be licensed. They need full liability insurance, along with a current worker’s compensation certificate.

TIP! A contractor who has employees could be cheaper than one who works solo. A team of roofers will finish the job faster, which will often result in a cheaper final product.

Don’t install new shingles until you’ve gone over your roofing materials. Lots of leaks occur from improper materials, such as nails that are the wrong length or cracked shingles. The shingles should be strong and crack free, and the nails should be sturdy.

TIP! Check roofing materials before putting new shingles up. Many leaks actually originate from basic installation, with cracked shingles or nails that are an improper length to begin with.

Ask roofing companies for references. A company that performs well and is honest should have no problem coming up with multiple references. If you get a contractor who balks on giving reference, run, don’t walk, in another direction. This might be a sign that the contractor isn’t a true professional.

TIP! Consider a living roof if you are thinking about putting a new roof on your home and you are environmentally conscious. A living roof provides you with space to plant.

It can sometimes be difficult to locate a leak in your roof. It’s only a matter of time before you find it through the process of elimination and using a water hose may help in combination with a buddy-system. If it’s a big house, use cell phones to communicate so that water isn’t flowing into the house unnecessarily as you test different areas to find the leak.

TIP! Test any potential roof leaks with a garden hose. This will show if you have a leak and the area where the leak emanates from.

As discussed earlier, keeping your roof in good shape can be a lot of work. However, it is imperative to the safety and reliability of your home. Use what you have read as you tackle any roofing issues that are thrown your way. Your efforts will be well worth it in the end.
