Tips to Help you make a Roof Maintenance Checklist

You don’t need to climb on your roof to spot signs of trouble. It’s best to leave that to the professionals. Instead, examine your roof from the ground with a pair of binoculars, looking for damaged or missing shingles, rust spots or cracked caulk on your flashings, cracked or worn out rubber boots around vent pipes and masses of mold and lichen. Check your gutters for piles of asphalt granules, as well. Granules in your gutters can indicate that your asphalt shingles are nearing the end of their service life.


You can also check the other areas of your home for early signs of roof leaks. Go to your attic and look for wet insulation or sunlight peeking through the roof. Both signs mean your home is vulnerable to leaks. You can also look for dark areas on your ceilings, water stains on pipes venting the water heater or furnace and peeling paint on the underside of roof overhangs. As a roofing specialist, Skyguard recommends calling us for a professional inspection if you spot any of these signs.


Our professional roof inspection and maintenance services will provide a more accurate picture of your roof’s condition. Water can travel from one end of your roof to another, making it hard to pinpoint the source of a leak without professional help. We can also determine the status of your roof underlayment and see if there is hidden damage to your roof’s structure. We can spot small problems before they cause costly water damage, so we suggest scheduling a professional inspection at least twice a year.

We at Skyguard can help you with all your roofing maintenance, replacement and repair needs. With our decades of experience and our team of certified inspectors, we can recognize and repair all your roof problems and be able to prevent costly water damage to your home and property. We serve Louisville and the surrounding areas. Call us at 502-909-4058 to learn more about Roof Maintenance and Repair
