There’s a reason that the old saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” remains in use all these years after Benjamin Franklin first uttered those words- it’s as true today as ever!
The phrase applies to roofing as well, and we can’t stress the importance of annual roof maintenance enough. Whether you are a DIY pro or are happy to leave roof maintenance to someone else, make sure that you give your home’s roof the care and attention it needs.
With these annual maintenance tips, you can help keep your roof in top shape, ensuring that it lasts for many years to come!
Trees – trimming back tree branches and removing any dead trees each Spring can help you avoid many roof issues. Well-landscaped trees and shrubbery can also help to minimize any damage caused by wind and other stormy weather.
Gutters – it’s important to remember that gutters are a key part of the overall roofing system. Cleaning your gutters may be a thankless task, but keeping them clear of leaves and other debris is vital. Ask about our self-cleaning systems if this is a task you’d rather skip!
Repair – loose or damaged shingles or other roof materials, should be repaired right away. Damaged roofing can lead to many more serious problems. With regular roof maintenance, you can identify and correct any issues before they become a problem.
