Honolulu Roofing Maintenance Tips

honolulu roofing maintenanceRoofing Honolulu Hawaii – The Roof is one of the most important elements of your house or building. Consistency in maintaining your roof will ultimately increase the roof’s lifespan and its durability. We do not have snow or hail to contend with here in Honolulu, but there are other elements such as rain, wind, and stormy weather to worry about.  To assess the condition of a roof, check and examine the surface area and create a list of minor conditions that need to be fixed. Repair or change unwanted and broken roof tiles, get rid of moss and mildew and clean the gutters when necessary. If you can examine the loft area, the better. Here are some other factors that need to be inspected:

  • Water tightness – More often than not, a roof isn’t totally water-resistant. Although, the application of roof coating minimizes the possibility of water leakage, it’s still significant to fix the problem before applying a roof coating. Examining the attic is a great way to locate which areas may cause water leaks. Dark stained patches on wood indicates water damage so better look for those types of patches. They are usually seen surrounding the nails, in the gaps or other materials that made up the roof. The buildup of snow in the lower parts of the roof will likely cause water leakage.
  • Insulation – If you have ceiling insulation, it is made up of a standardized vapor barrier and an insulating material. This vapor barrier should be mounted in between the finishing material of the ceiling and the insulation in order to avoid moisture from going through the attic as well as to prevent condensing the roof structure during the wet season. As much as possible, the vapor barrier should remain airtight, and all openings in the pipes and cables should be covered.
  • Ventilation – Proper airflow and insulation of the attic helps air circulation inside the roof…especially in our warm Honolulu climate. Efficient ventilation will surely decrease the melting of snow in the lower areas of the roof. Thus, the possibility of snow build up during winter months will cease. Moreover, proper ventilation restricts the shingles in getting too hot making the house a lot more comfortable during summer. Prior to improving the ventilation, it will be important to make sure that all necessary actions are done to avoid warm air inside the house.

A strong and long-lasting roof on your Honolulu home is indeed necessary to protect your family that resides in it. Therefore, proper roofing maintenance is essential to prevent roof dilemmas in the future.
