Check your roof this time of year
Check your roof to make sure it’s in good condition. Precipitation in Charlotte is fairly moderate throughout the year. In an average year, the two months with the most precipitation are March and August, with over four inches of rain. April and May, on the other hand, have a good deal less rain. This is part of the reason why, according to Valuepenguin.com, homeowner’s insurance rates in both Charlotte and Concord, NC are lower than the state average. Another part of the reason, of course, is the fact that the state includes the Outer Banks, often victims of hurricanes.
This also means that this is the best possible time of year to inspect your roof and find out if you need a Charlotte roofing company to do any repairs. On a sunny day, go up into your attic and look at your roof from below. If you see sunlight coming in through cracks, that’s an obvious sign of trouble. While you’re there, check your attic for water damage.
Set a ladder against the side of your house and go up to look more closely at your roof (it isn’t necessary to set foot on your roof, and you shouldn’t.) Warped boards and missing shingles are obvious signs of damage. Less obvious signs are shingle granules (the whitish grainy stuff on asphalt shingles) in your rain gutter, and puddles under your roof where a clogged gutter overflowed.
