Weather-Proofing Your Roof: All You Need to Know

If you are going to be weather-proofing your roof as part of regular maintenance, it is important to follow expert advice before attempting any work on the roofing system. Here is everything you need to know about weatherproofing at your roof.

Proper Insulation

To weatherproof your roof you’ll need to consider insulation. Insulating your roof is one of the best things that you can do for weatherproofing. Installing the right insulation in your loft and attic area will make sure that the heat and cool air will be able to circulate through the insulation without your HVAC system having to work overtime.

Underlayment

Underlayment and its condition can be important to maintaining the quality of your roof. Many roofers choose a tar paper for a roof underlayment because it can be easy to install. If you’re having a brand-new roof installed, make sure that the underlayment is in good condition. Underlayment instalments throughout your home can further improve your hurricane preparedness.

Gutter Guards

Regularly cleaning your gutters can be an important part of roofing maintenance. Weatherproofing your roof with a gutter guard can be very important. These are guards that can prevent the buildup of debris in your gutter during heavy storms which can stop drainage.
