West Bridgewater General Contractor
The Roof is one of the most important elements of a building or establishment in West Bridgewater. Consistence in maintenance will undeniably increase a roof's lifespan and its resilience. To assess the health of a roof, check and examine the surface area and create a list of minor conditions that need to be fixed. Fix or change unwanted and broken roof tiles, get rid of moss and mildew and clean the gutters when necessary. If you can examine the loft area, the better. Here are other factors that need to be inspected:
Water tightness. More often than not, a roof isn't totally water-resistant. Although, the application of roof coating minimizes the possibility of water leakage, it's still significant to fix the problem before applying a roof coating. Examining the attic is a great way to locate which areas may cause water leaks. Dark stained patches on wood indicates water damage so better look for those types of patches. They are usually seen surrounding the nails, in the gaps or other materials that made up the roof. The buildup of snow in the lower parts of the roof will likely cause water leakage.
Insulation. Ceiling insulation is made up of a standardized vapour barrier and an insulating material. This vapour barrier should be mounted in between the finishing material of the ceiling and the insulation in order to avoid moist from going through the attic as well as to prevent condensing the roof structure during winter. As much as possible, the vapour barrier should remain airtight, and all openings in the pipes and cables should be covered.
Ventilation. Proper airflow and insulation of the attic helps air circulation inside the roof. Efficient ventilation will surely decrease the melting of snow in the lower areas of the roof. Thus, the possibility of snow build up during winter months will cease. Moreover, proper ventilation restricts the shingles in getting too hot making the house a lot more comfortable during summer. Prior to improving the ventilation, it will be important to make sure that all necessary actions are done to avoid warm air inside the house.
