The roof over your head is only as important as how perfectly it protects you from harsh environmental conditions. The roof of your home endlessly withstands the havoc of nature. The scorching sun breaks down the surface materials that can weaken your home, while rain and storm can exploit any weaknesses and cause further damage to the structure. The destructing effects are more significant during the rainy season when heavy rain showers can creep into the cracked roofs and terraces. Leakages can slowly damage your property, increasing both your repair expenses and frustration.
Ways to Keep Your Roof Safe in Monsoon
1. Regular Inspection of your Roof
Do a regular inspection of your roof and repair any sign of aging, damage, or leakage. This will prevent bigger and more costly issues in the future.
2. Clean It Up
Clean all the leaves, debris, and dirt to give the rainwater a passage out of your roof. You should also trim any extra or long tree branches that are hanging on your roofs. Ensure that no leaves or residues are adhering to your roof as they may cause blockages in the gutters and pipes. The space between the fitted tiles must be clean and the rainwater must be able to seamlessly flow towards the gutter. The rain and humidity may also lead to mold formation that may further obstruct the flow of rainwater.
4. Locate and Fix Roof Leaks
Track down any kind of leakage on your roof. You can start by checking your roof uphill from the tainted spots. The items that penetrate your roof are the most common places of leaks. It’s rare for leaks to develop in the open areas. The uninterrupted shingles have a lesser chance of leakage in comparison to penetration that may include roof vents, plumbing, chimneys, dormers, etc. You must repair the small worn outs defects, and identify any other conditions that may require extensive repair works. You can repair all the cracks and leakages on the roof using Onduline’s roof leakage solutions.
5. Waterproofing Paint On The Roof
Your roof is the most exposed part of your home that must be capable of withstanding the harsh weather conditions efficiently. It protects your house from the thunderstorm, rain, sweltering heat, and UV radiation. During rainy weather, it’s best to give protection to your roof from leakage and wet spots on the interior with the help of high standard sealants and waterproofing paints.
6. Choose Appropriate Roofing Material
If you’re planning to update your roof or want to build a new home, choosing the right kind of roofing materials can save your hard-earned money and valuable time in the long run.
