How Do You Know if You Have A Roofing Issue? Complete a Proper Roof Inspection!

Getting up on your roof to perform a proper roof inspection can save you a great deal of money.  Detecting roof issues early on allows you to resolve them and prevent them from becoming a large problem.

We recommend completing the following list at least twice a year (fall and spring) to ensure your roof is in good working condition:

  • Clear all debris off the roof (dirt, rocks, branches, leaves, etc.)
  • Clean out drains and gutters to ensure proper drainage can occur, preventing ponded water
  • Remove any overhanging tree branches or anything else that could penetrate the roof surface
  • Install walk pads in high traffic areas - especially around roof hatches and equipment systems
  • Inspect and ensure all equipment is properly flashed and watertight
  • Inspect all areas for leaks and deterioration – pay attention to stains and discoloration of the roof edges and surrounding walls as they are possible indications of a leak
  • Take note of any trouble areas that could cause leaks, damage or deterioration and call National Coatings at 800-423-9557 for further guidance.
