Extending The Life Of Your Roof Is Achievable
Your roof is a long-term investment in your home/business and in your future. One way to get the most out of an investment is to extend its useful life. Is extending the life of a roof possible, and if so, how is it accomplished?
Extending the life of your roof is achievable, and can be done using some practical steps. The main way a home or business owner can extend the life of their roof is through regular roof maintenance. Roof maintenance is not as daunting a task as it sounds. Keeping your roof free of debris like sticks and leaves one form of roof maintenance. This can be done by getting on your roof and sweeping off debris. It is also helpful to trim up tree limbs that may be hanging over your roof. While these things can be done on your own, you should have a professional clean it for you if you feel uncomfortable on your roof.
Have your roof regularly inspected. We recommend you have a professional inspect your roof once or twice a year. This will allow you to repair any damage that may lead to bigger problems down the road if left unrepaired.
Make sure to keep your gutters clean, especially in the spring and fall. As gutters clog, they can become heavy and pull on gutter fasteners, resulting in damage. They can also result in ice dams in the winter, which can cause leaks.
