Roof Flashing and Other Areas to Inspect on Your Roof

Modern design vertical roof with black metal coveringAt Kozy Kollar, we know how important a home’s roof is to the overall well being of your home. This is why we developed our one of a kind roof flashing; to help homeowners ensure that their homes are effectively protected by nature’s often harsh elements. With our roof flashing, you can avoid having to do any frustrating work on top of your roof. Instead, our product can be installed from inside your home by one person, in ten minutes.

It’s true that our product makes you and your home safer when it comes to the well being of your roof, but we’d still like you to familiarize yourself with other potential roof hazards that, if left unattended, can lead to expensive and annoying repairs in the future. So we’d like to take this opportunity to go over a few things to keep an eye out for when inspecting your roof; especially because summer time is a great time to inspect your roof for inadequacies.

  • Damaged or Missing Shingles – Looking for missing or cracked shingles on your roof is especially important. If the underlayment of a roof is exposed to the elements, it’s very common for it to weaken and rot more quickly. This can lead to structure damage that can cause serious headaches in the future.
  • Discoloration – Discoloration of a roof is often caused by algae. Algae thrive off of the limestone found in asphalt shingles, turning them a greenish color and even causing the roof to weaken.
  • Built-Up Debris in Valleys and Drains – Water tends to build up in roof valleys and gutters because they can easily become blocked by clutter and debris. And, when water needs a place to go, it goes downward – directly into your home. Do your best to keep your roof’s valleys and gutters as clutter free as possible while the weather is still nice.
  • Water Damage – Pay special attention to certain parts of your roof that can easily collect water. Chimneys, valleys, and roof flashing are areas of the roof that are highly susceptible to water damage. If you notice watermarks on your ceiling, it may be time to use Kozy Kollar’s one of a kind roof flashing to prevent further water damage.
