• Storm Damages - One of the biggest problems with ridge ventilation is that it can be easily damaged during high winds and storms. When inspecting your roof for damages after a storm, it’s vital to inspect the ridge vent and other roofing penetrations for leak damages and disrepairs. A damaged ridge vent may involve cracks, breaks or other visible damages to the ridge vent. It can also be leaking where it’s not visible such as around caulking, under flashings and around shingles. Look for signs of any loose shingles as well. If your ridge vent is damaged due to storm damages, call a roof repair contractor immediately before problems are allowed to get worse.
• UV Damages and Aging - As time takes its toll on any roofing material, sunlight damages, storm and general wear and tear can make a ridge ventilation system leak. Biannual roofing inspections are designed to help prevent roof leaks from forming around these easily damaged areas of the roof. Roofer911 recommends you inspect your roof twice a year to prevent leaks and roofing problems before they have a chance to start. Signs of sun damaged ridge vents include discoloration, chalking surfaces and brittle sealants. If you see any of these signs on your ridge vent, call Roofer911 at (703) 475-2446 and we will send a qualified roofer to inspect your roof for any damages and disrepairs.
