Even on newer, good condition roofs like the one pictured, a basic maintenance routine is still necessary. You want to keep it not only looking good, but to keep everything beneath it dry. The fasteners that hold on the roofing product need particular attention. If they become exposed, as seen in the picture, they can serve as a welcoming entry point for water. And wherever water can get in, it will! Proper sealing of any exposed fasteners with tar is an essential part of any roof maintenance schedule.
If you book Abode Analysis for an inspection in the near future, you may see an unfamiliar face tagging along with a laptop or the odd tool or ladder. That face would belong to me! My name’s Jordan Vestal, and I’m currently in training to join the Abode Analysis team as an associate inspector. I’ll be taking detailed notes as Andrew gives your home a thorough once-over while I prepare to obtain my license in the coming weeks. Meantime, it’ll be a pleasure to make your acquaintance, and thanks for welcoming me in!
