While recent scientific and technological advancements have made weather prediction possible, there will still be days when the rain comes unexpectedly. You shouldn’t be out in these types of rain unprotected, and neither should your tile, metal or shingle roof. In this article, Dynamic Roofing Concepts Inc. lists four ways that can help prepare your roof against the ravages of a storm, whether it’s an unexpected inclement weather or a predicted downpour.

1. Fasten Your Shingles

Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular roofing options in the U.S. So if your home has a shingle roof, listen up. When strong winds start to blow, the shingles become the most vulnerable part of your roof, especially the ones on the bottom row. For shingles that are rated G or H (wind-resistant for up to 120 mph only), you can use roofing cement to reinforce the shingle adherence.

Note that roofing cement can take up to two weeks to properly dry up, so you have to get this done as early as possible. If you have tile roofing, make sure to affix the bottom row tiles with expanding foam adhesives available in your local hardware store.

2. Use Fasteners

Reinforce your roof deck by nailing it with extra fasteners to the rafters. Use galvanized ring-shank nails for more holding power.

3. Reinforce the Soffits

The primary task of soffits is to keep the rafters protected. You can secure soffits by using polyurethane sealant and stainless steel screws.

4. Clear Out the Surroundings

Keep tree limbs away from your roof by trimming them. You should also keep your yard clean. Store the trampoline, lawn chairs and lawn ornaments in the meantime.

Keep Your Roof Protected, Rain or Shine
