Strong storms may only take a few minutes to pass through, but the results remind us for days to come. While you’re cleaning up the yard, be sure to watch for blown off shingles or slate. If you want to take it a step further, use your ladder to get a closer look at the roof.
- Check for damage to the ends of the shingles or to the gutters.
- This is also a good time to check for loose or missing shingles.
- Inspect the vents to ensure animals, debris or damage are not blocking the flow of air
- Inspect the caulk at the chimney flashing. You’re looking for dried out or cracked caulking.
