- Near the chimney
- Under damaged shingles
- At flashing points
- Around gutters
- At skylights
- Close to vents and pipes
- In low spots or valleys
If you see signs of a leak, including stains on your ceiling, call Heritage right away for a professional roof inspection.
When water begins to pool it can cause serious roof problems. This is especially true for flat roofs, which are pretty standard on commercial buildings. Forming tapered areas over the surface can allow water to run off properly.

Whether a tree limb crashes into your roof or branches rub against it, they will eventually wear down the layers of your roof. Keep tree limbs trimmed so they don’t rest on the top of your home. If they are a hindrance to maintain, consider professional tree removal.
Clogged and broken gutters can cause water to back up into the system. When that happens it might eventually seep into your eaves and cause rotting. Always keep gutters clean and free of debris. You can prevent leaves and twigs from getting into your system by installing screens.
