Regardless of how sturdy your roof is, it will sustain damage over time. This is why it pays to inspect and maintain it regularly. Doing so will not only spare you from costly repairs but will also preserve your home’s structural integrity.

Getting Ahead Costly Roofing Problems

Apart from gutter protection products, MR. FIX-IT™ also offers top-notch roofing solutions to keep your home dry, cozy, and safe. We share four ways to address issues early, before they turn into major problems:

1. Replace Damaged Flashings

Flashings refer to strips of metal used to seal roof valleys, edges and penetrations. They divert water away from these vulnerable areas to prevent leaks. Just like other components, however, they will wear down over time. Once they start to rust or deteriorate, have them replaced promptly.

2. Look for Cracked or Missing Shingles

As the outermost layer of your roof, the shingles have a big impact on your home’s protection and curb appeal. This is why when you notice cracking, curling or other signs of damage, it’s important to fix them immediately to prevent water infiltration and moisture problems. You should also replace any missing pieces. If your roof starts to look like a checkerboard, however, it may be time to consider an upgrade.

3. Check the Underlayment

The underlayment acts as the secondary barrier against leaks. When left exposed to the elements, however, it may prematurely wear. This can leave your roof structure at risk of damage caused by moisture.

4. Improve Your Gutter’s Functionality

Gutters do more than just support your roof; they are integral to your home’s well-being. Don’t wait for overflows to happen before removing leaves, dirt and other debris from the system. You may also invest in Gutter Helmet® to save time, money and effort.

Unlike other gutter protection products, Gutter Helmet features innovative debris-blocking properties like a narrow opening and nose-forward design to keep debris out. It also applies the principle of surface tension to ensure water flows smoothly into the system. These qualities will keep your gutters efficient and clog-free for a long time with less work on your part.
