Your roof protects your home from various elements, enduring wear and tear on a daily basis. Occasionally, it would have to withstand severe weather as well. High winds, hailstorms, heavy rain – these conditions can cause significant damage to your roof.
To give your roof a better chance of avoiding extensive damage and to ensure your roof lasts a long time, here are some basic tips on how to properly maintain your roofing system.
Experts typically recommend roof inspections twice a year, ideally in the spring and fall. These routine checks will help you detect any issues early, allowing you to carry out minor repairs before they cause a bigger problem or damage. Typically, roofing professionals look for any potential issues or red flags that could have an impact on your roofing later on. For example, they check roofs for loose or missing shingles, loose or exposed nails, damaged or missing flashing, etc.
Make sure to clean your roof and all other related systems regularly so that dirt and debris won’t build up on any part of your roof and cause damage. Pay close attention to the shingles and flashing, and don’t forget to also clean the gutters, downspouts, eavestroughs, chimneys, vents and other installations on your rooftop. Since the job requires getting up on the roof and clearing debris like leaves and branches, it would be best to hire a professional roofer to perform the necessary tasks.
Repairs should be done immediately in order to prolong the life of your roof system and maintain the integrity of the roof’s materials. It’s best to perform small fixes early as these would help you avert major repairs and expensive repair costs.
