A Guide to Weatherproofing Your Roof, Honolulu, Hawaii

Storms take a toll on your roof, and while you can’t predict when they’ll hit, you can prepare for the eventuality with weatherproofing. Learn more about weatherproofing and how it will protect your roofing from the elements below. 

What Does Weatherproofing Entail?

Weatherproofing your roof involves waterproofing the surface and ensuring all structural elements work in harmony. Waterproofing sealants contain hydrophobic elements that allow water to bead off of the roof. This substance is applied during dry weather.

As part of weatherproofing, professionals will also inspect the home’s drainage system, checking for issues with gutters, downspouts, and main slopes. Insulation may be added to support the roof, maintain an even temperature inside your home, and prevent warping, condensation, and rising energy bills. 

How Can You Maintain Weatherproofing?  

roofingWhile waterproofing measures can last for years, they do have a life expectancy and should be evaluated regularly by professional roofers, especially after a severe storm season. Maintain roof waterproofing by redoing waterproof sprays about once every 10 years

Always be on the lookout for issues with gutters and downspouts. If you spot areas where water seems to pour out of downspouts or over the gutters and onto the ground, you may need a roofing or gutter repair.
