Things are looking up for homeowners who want to stay on top of roof repairs.

Following a few expert tips for ongoing roof maintenance and repair can help you prevent mold intrusion due to water leakage and avoid extensive roof repairs.

Experts recommend starting your roof check with a visual inspection. Most minor problems can be detected before they get to be major ones. Inspect for cracks, splits and tears-any you see can result in a leak.

Inspect all roof penetrations including skylights, chimneys and roof vents to see if the cement around them still adheres. Any separation can allow water to get through.

Look for shingles that are not properly adhered or loose, apply a quarter-size amount of roof cement with a brush under every shingle tab that is lifting and secure each in place.

Take a look at the flashings for areas that have suffered damage or have become warped. To repair flashing leaks, apply plastic roof cement between the adjoining materials and secure in place. If you are making the repair under wet or colder conditions, use a high-quality product such as Henry 208
