The life span of your roof will always depend on how you maintain it. Proper procedure and execution will keep your roof’s performance at its peak. Home Pro Exteriors, Inc. shares a list of what you should look out for when doing your own maintenance or even when you’re considering getting a contractor for a roof replacement.
Clear Away Debris
Debris will always pile up on your roof when it doesn’t get maintained regularly. Not only does it affect the quality of your roof, but it could also increase the chance of cracking and splitting that may lead to the formation of leaks. Maintaining the cleanliness of your roof would help in the prevention of debris build up that affects your roof.
Check the Shingles
A regular inspection of your roof’s shingles will help you figure out if any portion of the rooftop is damaged or if the roof itself needs roof repair. Note that while you can do a cursory inspection on your own, a professional inspection will be a better choice. A trained professional will be more capable of spotting any issues on your roof.
Check the Gutters
In the same way that debris on the roof can impact the roof’s performance, you also need to check the gutters for any obstructions or damage. Ensure that the gutters are free from leaves and granules and other types of debris. If there are sections of the gutter that seem to be out of place or damaged, consult a professional contractor to see if it could be easily repaired.
Check the Flashing
The flashing of your roof keeps roof edges from turning into large leaks. This is why you need to make sure that your flashings are still secure and functional.
