Recently we talked to Chris Rochester of 1st Choice Roofing & Construction about ways Houston Homeowners can reduce their risk of roof leaks. Here’s what Chris told us:

  1. Check the sealants around pipe boots, flashings, and ridge shingles. Make sure it’s not peeling away or missing so that no water can creep in through the seams.
  2. Look for penetrations through the roofing system. These can include dents from hail, punctures from falling branches, and scratches from windblown debris and animals.
  3. Clear out gutters and downspouts. If leaves, pine needles, or other debris clog up your gutters, the water can overflow and pool on your roof. This can lead to rot, water damage, and leaks.
  4. Clean debris off the valleys of your roof. If you’ve got a buildup of leaves or pine needles sitting on your roof, cleaning it should be a top priority. Damp rotting debris can cause water to dam up during rainy weather. If enough water sits long enough it may get past the underlayment.
