Roof Checkup Guide for Homeowners in Anchorage, AK

A checkup on your roof system in the fall and spring will help diagnose potential problems early

When cleaning your gutters or inspecting your roof system, remember important ladder safety tips:
•  Make sure the ladder is on solid, level ground. 
•  Secure the ladder at the top to prevent it from slipping. 
•  Inspect the ladder, rungs and rails for damage. 
•  Extend the ladder at least 3 feet beyond the gutter, and angle it 1 foot back from the house for every 4 feet in eave height. 
•  Always use both hands when climbing the ladder.
Once on the ladder, you should look for:
•  Shingles that are buckling, curling or blistering; this indicates the end of the shingles' life expectancy.
•  Loose material or wear around chimneys, pipes and other penetrations.
•  Excessive amounts of shingle granules in your gutters; granules give shingles added weight and protect them from ultraviolet rays.
Before you hire a roofing contractor, do your homework:
•  Check for a contractor's permanent place of business, telephone number and tax identification number.
•  Check references from prior customers.
•  Ask for proof of insurance (liability and workers' compensation*).
•  Ask the contractor about material and workmanship warranties.
