3 Key Areas To Inspect On Your Landed Property Rooftop

In Singapore, landed property rooftops experience harsh damage due to the equatorial weather. Strong winds cause tiles to become loose and displaced, heavy rains wear down shingles and ultraviolet rays, as well as heat from the sun, cause thermal expansion. The combination of these elements results in a damaged rooftop. Damages to your landed property rooftop open up the possibility of even further damage to the home if left untreated. Performing routine checks of your roof will ensure you catch these signs of damage early before repairs become too costly. Ideally, a roof should be inspected once every 6 months to ensure the integrity of the roof is intact.

 

Here are 3 common areas to inspect on your rooftop:

 

1. Roof Gutters

Found along the edge of your roof, gutters provide a means for rainwater to be directed away from your home. Clogged or blocked gutters due to leaves and other debris can cause damage to your building’s exterior. Be sure to clear any blockages you find along the gutter to ensure rainwater flow is not obstructed

2. Roof Shingles

Over time, roof shingles can peel, crack or become damaged due to the reasons outlined above. If you find any signs of peeling, cracking or visible damage on the roof shingle, replace it immediately with the help of a professional to prevent it from allowing water damage to occur to the rest of the home.

3. Roof Flashing

The roof flashing is meant to help prevent water from getting under the shingles. Flashings are crucial to prevent leaks into the building. The flashing is typically made of metal and may rust or become damaged over time. Perform visual inspections for signs of rust or puncture in the roof flashing.
