A roof is a major investment, so it’s smart to do whatever’s necessary to make sure it stays in good
Regular inspection and preventive maintenance will
keep small problems from becoming big ones. It’s smart to hire a roofing professional to check things out on a regular

obstructed drains that are already in place.
- “Alligatoring” and Blistering — When cracks appear
in the surface of a built-up roof, cold weather can create channels that hold water.
