#2 Flashing Check
The area along the flashing is one of the most common spots for leaks to occur. Your professionalAmerican Home Care LLC roof assessor will spend time inspecting this area of your roof to make sure it’s completely sealed.
#3 Inspect Roof Valleys
The valleys of your roof are prone to leaks. By keeping valleys cleared of any debris accumulation, you can reduce the weight sitting in these areas and help prevent unnecessary wear and tear on your roof.
#4 Examine Roof Shingles
Like flashing, your roof’s shingles can loosen after a patch of rough weather. Missing granules and visible signs of curling indicate that a shingle is suffering and may need to be replaced.
