Roof Maintenance Tips For Homeowners

Did you know a properly installed and maintained roof can last 25 years or more? Replacing a roof can be expensive, so it’s important to take good care of that investment and get the most for your money. Here are some easy roof maintenance tips any homeowner can benefit from, to be sure their roof is functioning well for years to come.

Clean Your Gutters

Gutters that are clogged and not draining properly can cause standing water to build up and mold to set in. This can damage your fascia, causing rot that can lead to expensive repairs.

Monitor Your Trees and Trim if Necessary

If you have trees that hang out over your roof, a strong storm can cause large branches and limbs to crash down onto your roof. Trimming these branches away from your home will save you this hassle next storm season.

Check Your Insulation and Ventilation

The insulation in your attic works along with your roof to keep your energy costs low. When the insulation and ventilation systems in your attic are no longer intact you will experience higher energy bills each month and possible ice dams in the winter months. Ice dams are safety concerns, and can also damage your roof.

Remove Debris From Your Roof

If you have leaves, tree branches or debris on your roof, it can lead to mold or moss forming on your roof. This is due to the buildup of moisture and maybe even standing water among the debris. Over time this could lead to structural damage.
