Preparing The Roof For The Monsoon Season

A roof leak can be a devastating problem that is sure to compromise the home. Nothing says wretched like a home littered with buckets to catch the rain leaking from the roof. There’re a few locations where roofs are especially prone to leaking. That is, the central area where water accumulates and is prone to build up. In order to prevent the occurrence, the best strategy is to secure regular maintenance from a qualified roofing expert like Gryphon roofing.

Chimney Leaks

The chimney is definitely a sensitive arear when it comes to leaks. The sealing that surrounds the exterior stack of the chimney is especially prone to leakage from rainfall. One strategy for preventing roof leakage around the chimney involves re-caulking the outer rim of the chimney regularly. If you notice flaky caulk, cracks, or leaking in the interior it may be the case that your chimney is compromised and you need the assistance of licenses professional.

Skylight Leaks

This area is vulnerable to leaking similarly to the chimney. Indeed, the caulking around skylights can erode and lead to water infiltration. But the steps to prevent this are similar to chimney maintenance. If happen to visit your roof, you should make sure to inspect the sealing around your chimney and skylight, diligently. But, again regular maintenance from a qualified roofer like Gryphon roofing is the surest way to ensure your roof is safe from leakage.

Roof Valleys

As previously mentioned, the most vulnerable area to roof leaks occur in your roof’s valley. This area is prone to water accumulation because water will naturally flow downhill. If there is a crack or whole in the roof the water will no doubt find its way to the opening, through your roof and into your home.
