Roof Maintenance and Inspection 101

Roof Maintenance

To maximize the service life of your roof, you need to develop some good habits. First, you should regularly check the ventilation system of your attic, because a healthy ventilation system means a healthy roof. With inadequate ventilation, a number of problems can arise such as ice dams, increased energy bills and deteriorating shingles. If your attic experiences mold growth, excessive heat or air drafts, these are all signs that the ventilation system isn’t working properly.

Next, you should check on the state of your gutters. Clogged gutters prevent water from draining away from your home, making your roof, siding, landscape and foundation susceptible to water damage. To minimize this risk, installing gutter covers should be a priority.

Roof Inspection

A roof inspection greatly benefits homeowners in terms of security and peace of mind. Professionals have the training and experience to detect underlying damage that most homeowners would likely miss. They can also recommend the appropriate solution.
