The removal of filth, debris such as leaves and twigs, and dead and alive creatures in and out of the house are all reasons for spring cleaning. Cleaning is prioritised not only inside the house but also outside of it, from the roof to the yard.Do you want to learn more? Visit Overhead Roofing Of Colorado Springs CO
The roof flashing is one of the roof components that must be evaluated at the start of the spring season. These are thin continuous pieces of weatherproof material, typically sheet metal such as copper, that are used to channel water away from the roof system’s angles and joints.
The joints and angles generated by the intersections of the roof and its mounted components such as skylights, vent stacks, and hatches are especially vulnerable to variations in temperature, humidity, and other elements of the weather, which is why roof flashings are so important. Even minor weather changes can cause these roof-mounted structures to compress and expand, increasing the danger of leaks from precipitation, snow, and melting ice. The joints and angles in these roof-mounted structures become waterproof with the roof flashings in place, while still allowing for natural expansion and contraction.
Roof flashings can be damaged when winter takes its toll. From winter to spring, the temperature and humidity levels fluctuate dramatically, increasing the risk of damage to the entire roof system. With the melting snow and ice on the roof, there are even more reasons to inspect the roof flashings, as well as the gutters and downspouts, in the early spring. Finally, if the roof flashings fail to assure the roof’s waterproofing and weatherproofing, serious damage can occur, not just to the roof but to the entire house.
However, you should think twice before climbing up onto the roof to inspect the flashings on your own. Not only is your limb and life at risk – roofing work may be dangerous without the proper equipment and experience – but you may not even realise the flashings are damaged. You’ll then ignore the pieces that need to be replaced or repaired.
