Your roof can develop a leak several years before the entire roof requires replacing. Usually these leaks are limited to small area damage, such as cracked, wind-blown, or missing shingles or roofing tile. The hardest part to repairing this kind of damage is locating it.
Since working on a roof can be dangerous, please ensure your familiarity with the necessary safety precautions as they just might save you from an unnecessary injury.
Roof Repair Safety Overview
Working on a roof can be dangerous. Keep these safety precautions in mind before tackling a roof repair:
- Always make roof repairs on a warm, dry afternoon; the shingles will be more limber and less likely to crack. A wet roof or icy roof is a slippery accident waiting to happen.
- Adequate safety measures must be taken for any roof repair. Always use safety harnesses.
- On steep roofs, use a ladder framework to provide secure anchoring.
- Rubber-soled shoes have been known to provide the best traction when working on a roof.
