Roof Maintenance Tips

Simple Tips to Help You Out

A well-maintained roof can last longer than you would expect. These tips will provide some simple, easy-to-follow steps to ensure your roof has a long and trouble-free life.

Inspections

It’s always a good idea to inspect your roof after a weather event like heavy rain, a hurricane, hailstorm, etc. Even if you go an entire year without severe weather, having your roof inspected for leaks and to check its overall condition on a regular basis will help you prevent any costly damages. Regularly checking your attic for roof problems and leaks is a great way to prevent any severe damage. Be aware of small animals like squirrels and raccoons in your neighborhood, as they could make your roof their new home and may cause irreparable damages on weakened areas.

Cleaning

It’s inevitable that your roof will get dirty over time. Not only will this make your home look bad, but it can also do some nasty damage if left untreated. For the best results, it’s always best to contact a professional cleaning company. Still, there are some things you can do yourself, like cleaning roof debris like sticks, branches and pine needles. Getting rid of roof moss, algae and black stains can become a dangerous task, so consider calling a professional, and don’t ever use a pressure washer on a roof.

Removing Nearby Trees

Trees that grow to close to your roof can be dangerous, and their weak limbs can cause severe damage it they fall onto it. Overhanging branches can also degrade your roof’s resistance and stone coating.

Don't Walk On Your Roof

Unless you have an emergency, never walk on your roof. You can easily cause damage on even the strongest roofs just by walking on them. If someone needs to go on the roof, it’s better to call a professional.

Call a Professional

There’s only so much a homeowner can do to maintain her/his roof, so the best thing you can do to protect your investment is to hire a roofing company or maintenance company to evaluate your roof’s conditions at least once a year.
