EASTON, Conn. -- Without proper maintenance, roof leaks are bound to happen. Luckily there are several easy precautions that homeowners can take to prevent the damage before it's done. Below, KRS Roofing shares tips on preventing common roof leaks as well as how to keep the roof looking as good as new.

Be Safe

Fixing a leak on your roof should be a top priority as it could cause major damage to any house, but it's important to attack it with caution. Weather could make going on the roof a dangerous mission and there is no such thing as a quick fix. Be careful and have the proper guidance and balance as you check your roof, especially during winter months.

Find The Leak

Spraying the roof with a garden hose in different locations to find the leak is an effective technique. Locating the source of the leak is an important first step to determine the severity of the leak and how to fix it.

Clean The Gutters

Keeping gutters clean is imperative to avoid roof leaks. Gutters that have not been cleaned cause water to build up over a long period of time and lead to severe leaks.

Straighten Out Shingles

Locate shingles that are curled back and use asphalt roof cement to realign them. Wear and tear can take a toll on your roof, so it's important to find the problem before it gets worse.

If fixing your roof is over your head and seems impossible, contact the Kurt Stowell and the experts at KRS Roofing to take on the challenge. Make sure your home is protected and properly maintained this summer.
