Proper Roof Maintenance

Seasonal Roof Care

Just as your gutters should be inspected and cleaned twice a year, so should your roof. When you prepare to clean your gutters in the spring and in the fall, be sure to add in a comprehensive roof inspection at the same time. A simple inspection can alter you on roof issues early on, which decreases the opportunity for any issues to worsen overtime and become costly repairs or renovations.

Here’s what to look for:

  • Wet or Moldy Leaves
  • Missing Shingles
  • Damaged Shingles
  • Fungus, Moss, or Algae Growth
  • Rust
  • Damaged or Missing Flashings
  • Chimney Damage
  • Water Leaks
  • Cracked Motor or Caulking
  • Dead Animals
  • Trash

Interior Inspections

When you are inspecting your roof, be sure to take a step inside to inspect your interior areas as well. Sometimes, roof problems can extend into the inside of a home if they become serious enough. Look for dark or wet spots on the ceiling and walls, as well as, mold growth or heightened dampness in the attic.

Routine Roof Maintenance

Aside from your annual inspections, it is important to implement some roof maintenance on a routine basis. For instance, it is best to sweep your roof on occasion to prevent a buildup of leaves and debris. These can become wet and cause mold growth and roof leaks, overtime. It is also helpful to keep tree limbs and branches trimmed back to a reasonable length to avoid any shingle or roof component damages. This also helps to keep nuisance wildlife off your roof, like raccoons and squirrels.
