Tips on Maintaining Your Roof

maintaining your roofYour roofing system could be looked at as one of the most expensive investments that you will ever have. It’s important that’s it remains in working shape. So we’re here with a couple of quick tips on maintaining your roof.

  • Check for Leaks: A leak in your roof can result in major damage to your home. Scheduling regular maintenance for your roof allows you to remain proactive and address any smaller issues from developing into to larger ones. Water stains on the ceiling inside your home are normally tell-tale signs of a leak.
  • Clean your Gutters: If there is debris and leaves blocking your gutters, you can end up with a major roofing issue. The gutters are meant to direct the flow of water safely away from the roof and without them, the water has nowhere to go but right through your roof.
  • Shingle Inspections: Your shingles act as your roof’s first line of defense against outside elements. So if there are any that are broken or completely missing, that could be a sign of problems that may be dwelling underneath. Extreme weather can cause shingle damage. If there has been a severe storm recently, we recommend calling our pros to do a full evaluation on your shingles.
