Lee’s Summit & Kansas City Roof Inspection, Maintenance

Regular roof maintenance is key to avoiding extensive roofing repairs. This is especially true in an area like Kansas City that experiences harsh elements, from heavy winds in spring to heavy snows in winter.

Preferred Roofing KC offers roof maintenance services, including roof inspections, to help homeowners keep roofs safe and functional.  By maintaining your roof,  you can protect yourself from potentially having to replace your whole roof which can be very costly.

The majority of roof leaks are caused by:

  • Missing shingles
  • Broken tiles
  • Worn felt
  • Cracked flashings
  • Sun-exposed roof membranes

Roof Inspection in Kansas City & Lee’s Summit

As a part of our roof maintenance services, Preferred Roofing performs a detailed and professional visual roof inspection and gives thorough explanations, normally within 24 to 48 hours.

How does this roof maintenance process work? A trained specialist starts the roof inspection by examining the interior walls, ceilings, and attic to see if there is any visual evidence of a roof leak. Any evidence gives us a very good idea of what to examine more closely during the actual inspection of the roof.

Next, we inspect the perimeter of the building looking for other evidence of leaks or damage. This includes looking for water stains on the outside of the building and looking for dry-rot and damage on the eaves and rafters. This will help determine what roof maintenance will be needed..

After the interior and perimeter observations are completed, we inspect the roof itself and perform a visual (non-destructive) roof inspection. Each type of roof has its own common critical areas and our specialist is trained to pay special attention to these potential trouble spots.

Once the inspection is complete, we assemble a written roof inspection report with an explanation of findings, implications, and recommended repairs and roof maintenance.

Roof Maintenance in Kansas City & Lee’s Summit

Roof maintenance can be a lengthy process. Here are the steps that any good roof maintenance routine includes:

  • Cleaning debris, such as leaves from the roof — be sure to also clear anything that has gathered behind your HVAC units, pipes, or pitch pans. Removing this debris, which can hold water, can help prevent water damage, particularly on asphalt-based roofs.
  • Checking all flashings to ensure they have no holes or deterioration.
  • Replacing damaged shingles.
  • Clearing gutters of all debris.
  • Ensuring that downspouts are properly draining.
  • Trimming overhanging tree branches to prevent potential damage.
  • Checking open valley metal for rusting.
  • Examining caulking and sealants.
  • Checking the chimney mortar and parapet walls.
  • Examining jack pipe flashing for any cracks in the rubber gasket.

These conditions can be prevented with regular roof maintenance and inspection.
