Summers in Delaware are known to be hot, humid, and for the most part – violent. That is why as a homeowner, you need to be prepared to have your roof in top notch shape before summer days arrive for good. Trust us, the last thing you want to deal with this season is a hot and humid air inside your house, and a higher than normal energy bill.
We often forget, but the roof that is well maintained is probably the best investment that you can have in your property. Also, having it regularly inspected is what will save you money in a long run as well.
When was the last time you had your Delaware roof thoroughly inspected? Remember, sometimes it takes just a small repair to bring your roof back to its best. Here are 4 Steps to consider when preparing your roof for the summer.
1. Invest in Proper Attic Ventilation. Stagnant hot air in the attic can cause damage when moisture gets to your roof’s wood decking and rafters. Read more about the solutions here.
3. Clean Your Gutters. The dangers of bad gutters are real. Do you really want to risk the wealth of your home and family for something that could be easily fixed?
4. Complete Roof Repairs. Make sure to replace any missing shingles ( “tear-offs,”) and/or seal your flat roof.
