A roof replacement is a necessary but expensive investment. If you can take care of your existing roof you’ll be in much better shape. This is why it’s important to keep an eye on your roof and maintain it for the long-term. We’ll explain how you can do this with these helpful tips!
Look Out for Damaged Shingles
If your roof has shingles, monitoring them is a good way to get an idea of your roof’s health. If you can safely get a good view of your roof, check for missing or damaged shingles. Be careful if you are using a ladder because ladder falls are very dangerous. Another sign of shingle deterioration is pieces of shingle in your gutters, so be sure to check those as well!
Get an Inspection
There’s no better way to get an assessment on your roof than to ask a professional. We recommend getting a professional inspection at least once every two years. However, it’s even better to get an inspection once a year. Ultimately, spotting roof damage and potential problems will save money in the long run when compared to installing a brand new roof!
Clean the Gutters
Your gutters are an important part of your roof’s health. You need your gutters to efficiently clear water from your roof. Otherwise, your roof will not be ready to handle a storm when it comes. As we mentioned above, pieces of shingles in your gutters are a sign of damage, so keep an eye out!
