Your Guide to Keeping Your Roof in Good Condition
A small amount of effort can help maintain your roof for a long time. In addition to regular maintenance service, here are some easy ways for you to keep your roof in fantastic shape:
Use proper insulation: Minimal or non-existent insulation can be a problem for any roof because it affects heat regulation, which can cause ice damming in the winter and other damage year round. Make sure that you have good quality insulation that is installed properly.
Check ventilation: Proper ventilation also influences heat regulation and moisture. Combined with insulation and these are two major steps to eliminate ice damming, among other issues. You'll also see better energy efficiency.
Make sure flashing is installed: Flashing is installed in the valleys of your roof and at other seams (such as around a chimney). It's simply a thin piece of waterproof material that guides water away from a potential entry point.
Keep your gutters clear: Clogged gutters can lead to water building up and bad drainage, which can also affect soffits and fascia. Learn more about our gutter services here.
Keep tree branches away: Tree branches can damage your roof by scraping away at granules of asphalt shingles. They can also puncture your roof or otherwise damage when the branches strike it in inclement weather. Dropped leaves can clog gutters or accumulate on the roof and start to decompose. Have trees trimmed regularly to keep them away from your roof.
Never use a pressure washer: With its high power, a pressure washer can actually remove the granules from your asphalt shingles and cause other damage. Leave the spraying to the professionals to avoid causing more harm than good.
4 Reasons You Can't Ignore Regular Maintenance
A poorly cared-for roof will deteriorate faster than a well-maintained one, ultimately shortening its lifespan and requiring you to replace it much sooner than you would have otherwise. However, there are other considerations as well:
Prevent structural damage: Damage on your roof can lead to mold, rot, and worse. Maintenance services will protect the integrity of the entire structure.
Improve energy efficiency: Lower your heating and cooling costs in a home or business. Keeping your vents and insulation in good condition benefits your roof and your wallet.
Stop insurance cancellation: Your homeowner's insurance carrier may choose to drop your policy if you don't make any mandated repairs.
Increase your appraisal value: If you are trying to sell a home, an unattractive, poorly maintained roof will hurt your resale value. Regular cleanings and maintenance can keep it looking good and protecting your home like it should.
