Routine care is integral to making sure your roofing system is in top shape at all times, ready to protect your home from the elements no matter the season. You have to make sure all roofing components are given attention, but one of the most important parts you should focus on is your flashing. Don’t know where to start? Don’t worry! Commercial roofing pro Sully-Jones Roofing is here to help you check and maintain your roof flashing.
If you have a leak, it’s worth checking your roof’s flashing first because it’s a common entry point for moisture. This is because flashing are located where joints on a roofing system are. If a flashing fails, it exposes roofing seams. Flashing are also prime spots for leaks because they are usually found along valleys where rainwater usually flows through.
Even when you don’t have a leak or need roof repair, you should schedule a flashing inspection at least once a year. This will help you stay on top of deterioration and other issues before they worsen.
Flashing will loosen over time, so make sure to have screws and seals checked, as well as metal where the edge of the flashing is attached. Metal can wear away as it’s exposed to the elements, loosening a flashing’s hold. Galvanic corrosion occurs when two different types of metal come into contact with each other so see to it that you are using screws made from the same metal as your flashing. After screws are replaced, you can cover them with roofing cement to add further water protection.
