Moss acts like a sponge holding onto water, causing rot to wooden surfaces such as your roof or sundeck. In addition, moss can also hasten the effects of water damage to such surfaces as bricks, concrete, asphalt and even marble. Taking root in tiny cracks as moss grows can expand these tiny fissures, expediting long-term damage into short-term destruction. Fortunately, Coastal Shores Window Cleaning can help; by scheduling an annual moss removal service. With our seasonal moss removal solutions, we can eradicate all organic growth prolonging the need for costly renovations.
Concrete roof tiles also require a certain level of maintenance. While they offer Class A Fire Ratings, they can still take a beating from impacts, particularly when it comes to hail or fallen branches. As a result, some of the individual concrete tiles may need replacing, which can be challenging to do due to color differences caused by tile fading and also tile weight issues. Because concrete is a porous material, it absorbs water quickly, which can lead to the formation of things like mold and mildew, which are harmful to the roof and also physically unattractive. As a result, to prevent this water absorption, concrete roof tiles require a special sealant that will prevent moisture from seeping through.
Trim your trees: Tree limbs hanging down over your roof, or even on it can be a serious hazard. Not only do they put you at risk for broken limbs falling on the roof, they can wear down and damage shingles. Tree limbs can also encourage squirrels and raccoons to gain access to your home. Keep in mind that they may be closer to your home than you think: tree limbs are often flexible and can swing several feet during a storm.
Removing original period windows and exterior doors can destroy a period property’s character, and its value, unless they are sympathetically replaced. Authentic replicas are expensive, so always consider repair as a first option. Cheaper, off-the shelf joinery is rarely appropriate and is unlikely to fit the original openings and so will look wrong. If the original external joinery has already been removed, research neighbouring properties or books to find appropriate styles. Avoid modern hybrid products, such as front doors with built-in fanlights. Try and observe the techniques and materials used in the building’s original construction and try and repair, or replace, on a like-for-like basis. Internally, try and preserve original doors, floorboards, fireplaces and plaster mouldings if they are still intact.
Inspect for Rust: If you constructed your roof using any metallic parts, then you need to check regularly that there is not corrosion/rust on the metal parts. If you notice rust developing, it’s important to wire-brush to remove the rust, prime and finally paint the affected areas of the metal to retain keep them healthy longer. Clean the Gutters: Gutters that clog up can cause a lot of damage to your roof. The reason for this is that water accumulating on gutters can easily make its way underneath your roofing structure. By keeping your gutters clean and in good repair, you ensure they can serve their intended purpose, alleviating any immediate dangers to your roof in the process.
Flashings are pieces of metal (or other material) that are placed where your roof meets a vertical surface such as a chimney. These flashings are used to prevent leaks by diverting water from the space created by the intersection of the two surfaces. Many times the flashing can be dislodged or damaged by harsh weather conditions and this can cause water to seep into places unseen. Call us now to identify and fix flashing issues. Leaks that are not in the roof – Sometimes you can have a leak in the ceiling that is not coming from a roof issue. Attics can be a source of water stains on your ceiling. That’s because attics get very hot and moisture will condense in certain areas causing standing water. Often, air handlers are installed in the attic, and if your pan overflows or you have other A/C problems, this can also mimic a leak coming from your roof. We can identify what the source of the water is.
