Importance of Roof Maintenance
Your roof protects you from rain, wind, snow, heat and hail. Every day, your roof is exposed to elements and weather hazards that can lead to its deterioration and cause irreparable damage. Roof inspection and maintenance are crucial to prolong the life of your roof. It offers an opportunity to take a proactive approach to ensure the safety of your roof.
In this blog post, our technicians discuss the importance of roof maintenance and inspection.
Advantages of Roof Maintenance
- Helps preserve the beauty of your house
It’s no secret that a well-maintained roof increases the curb appeal of a property. A quality roof makes your home appear attractive and creates a positive impression on your guests. Look for problems such as algae, plant growth and curling shingles that can impact your roof’s appearance.
- Helps save money
Conducting roof inspections annually helps you detect any early damage. Without inspections, tiny issues may go unnoticed resulting in major repairs and possible damages.
Investing in maintenance will increase the longevity of any roof.
- Prolongs the service life
It’s always wise to prevent any damage to maximize your roof’s lifespan. The methods you opt for to maintain your roof vary depending on its material and each roofing material has its potential problems.
Knowing what your roof is made of enables you to care for it better. Consider characteristics such as weather, UV damage, pitch and average lifespan.
- Fewer roof leaks
Leaks are one of the most prominent reasons why roofers are approached by homeowners. Numerous factors cause leaks such as damaged membranes, natural deterioration and lack of maintenance.
While even a small infiltration may seem like a minor issue, it can lead to serious consequences. Once water enters your property, it can result in pests, mold can thrive, damaged insulation and even a weakened structure.
Toxic substances such as mold can cause many problems including:
Ø Reduced lung capacity
Ø Frequent nasal congestion
Ø Constant coughing
Ø Constant headaches
Ø Red and itchy eyes
Ø Certain neurological problems
- Preserves your warranty
Many product warranties and guarantees require the owner to complete periodic maintenance.
