Because maintaining your roof involves more than just fixing missing shingles, at Craftech Roofing, we want you to know a little bit more about the importance of things like your roof gutters, vents, and ventilation. When you regularly maintain all aspects of a roof, potential problems can be caught and fixed before they become a significant problem.
More Than Tiles & Shingles
Attention to the other areas of your roofing can extend its life, potentially protecting what’s on the inside of your building as well. Leaks, pests, collapses and other common problems usually start with easy to spot warning signs that go ignored. At Craftech Roofing, we know where to look and what to look for on all the parts of your roof.
- Roof Gutters
- Roof Vents
- Chimney Flashing
- Rain Caps
Gutter Cleaning, Repair & Installation
Maintaining roof gutters is vital to the health of your roof. If they become clogged or iced over, they no longer direct the flow of water away from your home which can cause water damage. It is recommended that gutters be thoroughly cleaned at least twice a year, preferably in the spring and late fall.
Many older homes in Colorado have poorly designed gutters or no gutters at all. There’s no need to go without this essential roof component or go through the hassle of maintaining your own. At Craftech Roofing, we can clean, repair, replace, or design and install a new gutter system for you.
Ventilation, Insulation & Air Flow
Ventilation and insulation also play critical roles in maintaining the integrity of your roof. When your building is adequately ventilated and insulated, it keeps you dry, warm, and comfortable. With proper ventilation, your home will have good air flow. This will also prevent the structure from accumulating moisture in the attic, causing mold or other property damages.
If your home was built before the 1980s, then you might need additional insulation in your attic. This minimizes heat loss through the ceiling and prevents ice dams from forming at the bottom of your roof. We can assess your insulation needs and recommend a course of action for proper ventilation and insulation.
Quality Maintenance Takes Time
It takes more than a glance to know if everything is in good working order with your roof. The extremes in weather in Colorado mean our climate can stress your roof without you knowing it. Even planned holes, like a chimney, vents, and skylights, need to be checked thoroughly and regularly for damage and kept in good condition.
