In many areas in North Carolina, it seems that we are getting our April showers a few months early with this week’s forecast full of rainy days. Rain can impact your roof in many ways. For example, if your roof is damaged, rain can lead to leaks in your home. With a well-maintained roof, rain will be no issue as your roof was built to protect your home and its residents from the elements.
When it comes to roof installation and repairs, completing these tasks when it’s raining is not a good idea for several reasons. First of all, roof installation during the rain is not safe for the roofers who can easily slip and fall during this weather. Secondly, roofing during the rain can trap moisture in your roofing materials leading to mold and other damage later down the road. Thirdly, roofing during the rain can cause materials to swell leading to roofing that isn’t soundly installed. For all of these reasons, we wait until the weather permits to install or repair your roofing, both for your benefit and ours.
When it comes to preventing damage from the rain, preventative maintenance is key. We recommend that you inspect your roofing for damage regularly, especially after a severe storm. In addition to that, keeping your gutters clean and clear is key to preventing water from backing up and affecting your roof. If you notice any missing shingles, leaks in your home, or any other sign of damage, it’s important to call a roofing professional as soon as possible to have these issues repaired.
