Are You Properly Maintaining Your Roof?

what is proper residential roof maintenanceProper roof maintenance can help your roof last longer and cost you less over it’s life. Roof maintenance isn’t just for commercial buildings. You should be working with a residential roofing company on regular inspections and maintenance for your roof, no matter what material it’s made of.

Roof Maintenance Includes More than Just an Inspection

When you call a residential roofing company for a roofing inspection, they’ll likely talk to you about the little things that your roof needs. Things like repairing or replacing flashing, sealing vents, and cleaning the debris from your roof. These items are a big part of residential roof maintenance. If you let your flashing fail, you will end up with a roof leak and it will cost hundreds more than if you perform regular maintenance that keeps it in top condition.

Roof maintenance includes your entire roofing system. That means your gutters, attic insulation and ventilation, and the roof itself. If your gutter’s aren’t clean water can back up to the edge of your roof and cause damage. When your attic isn’t properly vented, it can’t breathe and your shingles and roof deck can sustain damage. Spending a little money with your roofing company or spending some time on your roof’s maintenance will save you money over time.

It’s Isn’t Roof Repair

If you call your roofing company and ask for an inspection and roof maintenance, it won’t include roof repair. Roof leaks, broken shingles, missing shingles, or hail damage discovered during an inspection won’t be repaired as part of the service. They will provide an estimate and recommend the repair because roof damage can quickly spread leading to higher repair costs.

As a roofing company with over twenty years’ experience, we know that roof maintenance helps your roof last. We’ve also seen that homeowners who have had a claim against the manufacturer’s warranty have a much easier time proving the shingle failed when they’ve had regular inspections and maintenance because the manufacturer can’t claim the shingle failed from neglect.
