The flashing prevents leaks from occurring in the roof. Improper flashing can cause rotting and cracking in the wooden and cement parts of your roof. You could face costly repairs in the future if roofing problems aren’t immediately tackled.
Flashing problems are easy to fix when you hire the right roofing company to do the job. Here are mistakes to avoid to ensure your roof stays in good shape.
Doing the Job on Your Own
You can only do more harm than good to your roof if you attempt to fix the flashing on your own. What appears as a minor problem may require the expertise of a roofing professional. Also, roofing jobs are dangerous, especially when you don’t have proper training. There are areas on your roof where you can easily slip or that is sensitive to foot traffic.
