Your roofing system is an essential part of the structure of our home and works hard day in and day out to prevent water from entering and beating back heat, hail, and snow. Every day your roof faces a combination of fluctuating temperatures, raging elements, and blistering heat. As roofs age, they become weathered and damaged. Unfortunately, because a roof is not in plain sight, out of sight often means out of mind leading to a neglected roof and costly repairs.
Roof repairs can be expensive and tedious, especially if a problem has been left unattended. Neglected leaks allow damp and mold infestations to enter your home that can quickly spread throughout the entire structure of the building. Loose shingles may be a symptom of more significant structural issues, and sometimes it comes as a shock when seemingly minor damage turns into a costly roof replacement.
- Regular Roof Inspections
Familiarizing yourself with the condition of your roof can increase the longevity of the roofing structure overall as well as dramatically decrease the risk of costly repairs. Regular roof inspection by a roofing expert will ensure that no hidden problems are lurking that may not be evident to the unqualified eye. The most significant problem with conducting intensive inspections is the location of the roof. Trying to do it yourself can be difficult and dangerous and is best left to professional roofing contractors.
- Regular Maintenance
After a thorough inspection, routine maintenance and prompt attention to areas that need repair will prevent further damage from occurring and give you peace of mind that your roof is in top condition at all times and will have a longer life. Simple maintenance tasks to keep your roof in prime condition will help prevent damage from occurring between inspections and save you time and money on repairs. The best time to have your roof inspected is during Spring and Fall, before and after the storm season. An inspection will reveal any damage from storms such as loose shingles, dents from hail, leaks, storm debris blocking gutters and down-pipes, or flashing that needs resealing.
- Clean Roofs
The best roofs are clean roofs and getting rid of debris will not only prevent damage but prolong the life of your roof. Branches, pine needles, and leaves are all highly acidic materials that can damage the shingles on your roof and should often be removed. Debris that is allowed to remain on the roof will cause excess water to accumulate causing seepage and damage to the interior of the roofing structure. Pooling of water as well as accumulated snow and debris can add unnecessary weight to the roof, straining the structural integrity of the system and risking buckling. Gutters that become clogged with leaves and other debris that prevents water from running down the roof and can cause rust and leaks in the guttering.
Keeping your roof clean is the best thing you can do for your property. Not only does it look neat and tidy, but it will prevent damage and other roof related problems from occurring and prolong the life of our roof. Professional roofing contractors offer inspection as well as maintenance contracts to ensure that your roof is cared for and protected in the best possible way and they are only a phone call away when you need them to help you clean up your roof after a severe storm.
