The flashing is an integral component of your residential roofing system, and for good reason. Flashing helps keep the inside of your home dry by protecting areas of your roof that are vulnerable to water intrusion. Because of its importance, installing and repairing flashing should be done with the help of an experienced roofing professional. That way, you can avoid the following mistakes that can put your roof at risk:
1. Incorrect Application of Sealant
If you apply your sealants and flashing material incorrectly, you won’t have a fully repaired roof. Expect more problems to emerge soon, including water leaks in your attic and interiors.
2. Delayed Repairs
If you’re thinking that your roof is not too damaged to warrant repairs, you may be looking at costly repairs in the future. Regular roof maintenance and inspections should be put in place to make sure that your roof is functional and there are no underlying problems that may pose a threat to its structural stability.
3. Doing It Yourself
Taking on the DIY route when it comes to your roof can do more harm than good. Apart from the potential mistakes that might occur while applying sealants, you also put your body on the line. Working at a height is no easy feat and requires safety precautions. Instead of taking on the project yourself, you’re better off hiring a roofing contractor to do the job for you. With the right professionals for the job, you can be sure your flashing installation or repair helps keep your roof in good condition.
