When you purchased a home with an upper-level porch off the master bedroom, you were probably thrilled beyond words. The moment you saw this bonus area, your mind twirled with all of the possibilities for enjoying this extra space. You could immediately envision taking your morning coffee and newspaper to read on an extra large chaise lounge to begin the day in peace.
As you started each morning under a canopy of trees, you listened to the birds sing their musical songs. When you rested your eyes, you could envision the gardening pots that you would add along the edges, filled with all of your favorite flowers and vegetables. For a few years, you could actually make this dream a reality until the weight of all of the soil, pots, tools and chairs took their toll on your roof.
One day, as you worked in your home office under this area on the first floor, a leak from your personal retreat on the upper level signaled the end of your dream space. With each passing weather event, the opening in the ceiling began to expand, leaving a gaping skylight that you didn’t intend. When you contacted our company about general contractor services Northwest Arkansas, our roofing specialists shared the following suggestions.
Recommendations for Protecting Your Roof From Damage
Although roofs are always subject to damage from weather-related events, you can take several steps to minimize serious problems including:
- Make sure that your roof is strong enough to hold any weighty objects such as chairs and gardening pots.
- Inspect gaps or broken bricks around your chimney.
- Check that drainage spouts are clear and set up properly to redirect rain away from your roof and house.
- After a snowstorm of any size, remove these heavy piles to avoid additional pressure on your roof.
If you are in doubt about the correct way of handling these important tasks, it is important to hire a roofing specialist.
