The Importance of Proper Roof Maintenance

Jul 20, 2021 | Blog, Roof Maintenance

Many homeowners believe that once you get your roofing system installed, the only time it needs any attention is when a storm knocks down on your door. This is why most roofing systems and materials deteriorate faster than the estimation made by manufacturers.

To have your home’s roofing system looking good and lasting longer, you need to conduct regular inspections and have a thorough maintenance plan in place.


Below we detail the importance of regularly maintaining your roof and keeping it in good shape:


Damage Control

It’s is highly recommended that homeowners have a thorough maintenance plan in place. They’ll be able to help you detect any roofing issues early and solve things before they spiral out of control.


Extend The Life Of Your Roof

By taking care of roofing problems when they’re still insignificant, you’re able to curb any further developing issues and thus extend the lifespan of your roofing system.

Roofing materials are designed to last between 15 to 100 years, depending on the type of material. Therefore, knowing the steep costs of roofing installations and replacements, getting the most out of your current roofing system would make the most sense.


Maintain Your Curb Appeal

Your home’s curb appeal will automatically decline if your roof looks a little worse for wear. If you plan on selling your home and your roofing system is a mess, you can only expect to get less on your asking price.

It’s important that you keep your roof in good condition. If there are any repairs to be done or dirt and debris on the rooftop, do them now, so it doesn’t turn into a bigger problem later down the line.


Health And Safety

If your roof is significantly damaged, you may be placing the health and safety of your family at risk. A damaged roof can lead to leakages in your home, growth of mold and mildew, and the infestation of animals and wildlife.

If your roof is in complete disrepair, you’ll likely risk the whole thing collapsing in on itself and damaging not just your home but potentially injuring yourself or one of your family members.

    Ross and Philip provided exceptional service. We had been having roof leaks for more than 2-3 yrs in certain spots in the house.We had this inspected by multiple roofers and no one was able to figure out where the water was coming from … More in the house as there were no obvious signs of roof damage. Ross and Philip were onsite multiple times and helped figure out the issue and fix it. They were always very professional, always came on time and above all figured out the problem.
    They definitely went above and beyond.
    Regarding the work, they went over all the steps in detail. The work was clean and neat. We will definitely call them for any roofing issues.
