Tip Tuesday: Don’t Forget About Chimneys, Skylights, and Vent Openings
When it comes to your roof, you might think of shingles, gutters, and maybe fascia. But you also need to check the flashing around any roof penetrations like chimneys, skylights, and vent openings. These areas are highly susceptible to water intrusion because they could provide openings in the roof.
During the installation of your roof, these openings are sealed, but over time they can begin to leak. Pay extra attention to these areas as you inspect your roof so that if there is any sign of damage or leaking, it can be caught early before extensive repairs become necessary.
