●        Apply Additional Caulk Around the Chimney

Over time, roofing material around the chimney can become worn down and weak. This worn down material can cause leaks on your roof. To prevent these leaks from developing, take the time to ensure the cracks around your chimney have been caulked properly. If you aren’t able to get on your roof and check this area yourself, the experts at Intelligent Design Corp are happy to help! We’ll provide you with a fast and efficient inspection to ensure your chimney has a sufficient amount of caulk surrounding it.

 

●        Regularly Clean and Inspect the Gutters

You should clean your gutters at least twice a year: once in the spring and again in the fall. Cleaning your gutters will prevent your roof from enduring water damage as a result of a backed-up gutter system. When clogged gutters overflow, the water can gather on your roof and cause it to deteriorate and form leaks. For additional gutter assistance, Intelligent Design Corp is ready to help!

 

●        Maintain the Surrounding Trees

Severe weather storms and high winds are frequent here in Minnesota. Because of this, you should take the time to trim and maintain all of the surrounding trees. Severe weather conditions can send large branches down on your roof, which can result in costly damage and leaks.

 

Additionally, when water accumulates in trees, they can eventually spill high volumes of water onto your roof, which can cause your roof to endure water damage. To prevent this damage from forming, trim overgrown branches that are hanging over your home.

 

●        Repair Damaged or Broken Shingles

Your shingles should protect your roof from various natural elements including water and wind. When your shingles are broken and damaged, they aren’t able to properly protect your roof and home. To maximize your home’s protection, contact a professional to repair your roof’s broken shingles as soon as possible.
