Don’t wait until problems become obvious to take care of your roof. Be proactive and inspect your roof yourself (or hire someone to do it for you). Then take care of small repairs while they are still small. Small repairs can include things like caulking around a skylight, repairing a few damaged shingles or repairing the flashing.

These small repairs can help you delay the larger expense of needing to replace the entire roof. These repairs can even prevent other expenses like water damage to carpeting, flooring or roof beams. They can also help prevent the start of a potentially deadly mold infestation.
