Our winter rain can cause leaking roofs
As a licensed roofing company in Southern California we see a lot of leaking roofs during the winter time. If your new to Southern California you might wonder why since we pretty much have great weather year round. Winter in Southern California is the rainy season and when most people experience some type of roof leak.Depending on the type of roof you have asphalt shingles, clay tiles, concrete tiles or a specialty roof all these have different characteristics and can fail at different points for different reasons.
What Nolanco Roofing recommend for a dry winter and to save you from having to replace or a major roof repair periodical inspections. We recommend having your roof periodically inspected, the interval of that inspection should based on a few factors. Age of roof, type of roof and over all condition of your roof . We’ve listed a couple things to consider before having your roof inspected.
- Roofs covered by trees – falling leaves can clog drains and sit on the roof rotting shingles.
- Flat Roofs – sitting water which can rot a roof and it’s harder for leaves to be blown off.
- Clay Tiles – broken tiles our Santa Ana winds could send a tree branch braking a tile.
- Solar Roofs – check the footing of those solar panels if they were not installed by a licensed contractor.
These are just a couple of suggested to help you determine if you should have a licensed roofing contractor check your roof. Preventive maintenance can save you hundreds even thousands of dollars so don’t wait until you have a roof leak.
