Oklahoma City roofing contractors know that excess water buildup on your roof is a sign that your roofing system doesn’t effectively direct water away. There are several reasons why this happens. One factor, which is often overlooked, is the drip edge.
When heavy rain comes with blowing winds, the drip edge aids in keeping your roof free from water damage. This can prevent blow-under leaks from seeping in.
This vital component is a metal flashing that adds a finished look and provides waterproofing to your roofing system. The drip edge controls the direction of dripping water and helps protect the underlying wood on the eaves and perimeter of your roof. It also inhibits rainwater from flowing to fascia, and directs it straight to the gutters.
If the drip edge is installed incorrectly or when it is heavily corroded, you can expect that extensive water damage may form, especially in Oklahoma where we can get a lot of rainfall.
When the next downpour rolls into town, don’t let your roof be vulnerable to water buildup. Let Skyline Roofing put you at ease by securing your drip edges. Our expert craftsmen know just what to do keep those all-important components of your home in good condition. We can conduct a thorough inspection of your entire roof system, along with the drip edges.
Keeping your roof waterproofed can go a long way in keeping your family safe, and could prevent serious damage. Maintaining your roof in good condition against excess water buildup is always cheaper than repairing water damaged shingles or damaged wood eaves and fascia boards.
