Stanford, CT (prHWY.com) February 18, 2013 - Stamford, Connecticut (February 14, 2013) - Vinylume Home Improvement, an established provider of quality home repairs, is offering tips on proper roof maintenance. The CT roofing contractors advise homeowners to maintain the upkeep of their roofs to prolong its functional lifespan.

The roof provides shelter and protects the home from the natural elements, such as the rain, wind, snow, and ice. However, enduring such constant pressure leads to eventual wear and tear. If the interior ceiling shows stains or unexplainable moisture, the damage may be throughout the whole structure. To prevent this, homeowners need to conduct regular check-ups on the conditions of the roof.

Inspections should be every three to five years to detect damage before it worsens. If the roof is more than 10 years old, inspection should be done annually. During the process, homeowners should examine the shingles for any cracks or curls and if any are missing. Additionally, they should guard against penetrations of the shingle layer or roof deck.

To prevent water from seeping in to the inner structure, the flashing should always remain properly sealed. Chimneys, should be free from spalling, cracking, or loose bricks to protect the shingles around it. Overhanging tree limbs must also be trimmed to avoid damage from scratching. For gutters to function properly, homeowners should keep the roof clutter-free for debris not to transfer into them.

Vinylume Home Improvement advises homeowners to observe extreme caution in moving around the roof. For those who need the help of professionals, the Connecticut roofing company can conduct a thorough roof inspection on their behalf.
