Leaky Roof Water Damage Prevention Tips

The Steamatic team would like to offer our readers some loss prevention and roof maintenance tips to minimize their chances of encountering any problems. 

  • Call in a professional pair of eyes. At least once per year, you should have a professional look at your roof for any potential problems. A roofing or gutter cleaning professional would be able to assess your level of protection from water damage. Detailed inspection reports can be requested, giving you information on the condition of your roof flashing, covering, parapets, and drainage. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, as they say!
  • Invest in roofing repairs. If you have made it through the winter without any leaks thus far, but have noticed missing shingles or loose granules, then you need to act now. If you notice any pooling water on your roof, you need to take action immediately. Now that the weather is warm and the roof conditions safer, these problems can be repaired along with any deteriorated flashing around your chimneys and vents.
  • Consider insulating problem areas. Certain parts of the roof are especially prone to freezing and accumulated snow fall. If you notice pooling water anywhere now that spring is here, these pools will indicate areas in need of insulation.

We are very happy with the repairs and with Avalon Steamatic. Your team is fantastic! From the initial survey and analysis of the damage by Dave, to Kevin’s team with their excellent carpentry and cabinet making skills, to the excellent work by the cleaning staff, and to your readily accessible self, keeping us in the loop on everything – we were in good hands, and we thank you. I’m pretty sure this was our second time around (second water damage) claim that your company looked after, and it was reassuring to have such a professional company restore our property. We would certainly recommend Avalon Steamatic for anyone going through a similar experience.
