Repair is a process where an existing roofing system has additions and adjustments made to it,
such as caulking, re-roofing and repairing penetration to fix leaks in the roofing system.
Your roof protects everything within your house, precautions to safeguard your home
and prevent damage to your roof from storms, strong winds and heavy rainfall:


Check for leaks before they happen. Even minor roof leaks that go unnoticed can
become a big problem when a major weather event or storm hits. To detect leaks, look
on interior walls and ceilings for stains and water damage that indicate a leak occurred.
Also, take a flashlight into the attic during the next rainstorm and check for leaks on the
underside of the roof deck and rafters.


Keep nature in check. Fallen tree branches or those that scrape against a roof can
cause significant damage. Cut back large branches extending over roofs, and have a
professional inspect your yard for trees that should be removed altogether. Also, clean
out gutters and roof valleys clogged with leaves, branches or litter. Clogs can prevent
water from draining properly.


Do preventive maintenance. Contact Bryer Roofing to inspect your roof, and make
needed repairs to flashing, caulking and shingles before the winter or storm season
arrives. Most leaks occur where roofs meet sidewalls and around penetrations such as
skylights, vent pipes and chimneys. Missing or broken shingles can be individually
replaced, and loose shingle tabs can be re-adhered with an application of asphalt
roofing cement.
