Maintenance isn’t something you think about when you have a fairly new roof, but you should. Its importance heightens if your home has been in existence for several decades. One leak can do tremendous damage to old ceilings, walls and floors.
Since new roofs could fail with reactive maintenance, here’s the difference a preventive approach makes:
Spotting Red Flags Early
The roofing experts at Crown Roofing always consider scheduled inspections key to catching issues early. Many homeowners learn about roof problems when there’s already active leakage. Considering your roof has multiple layers of protection against the elements, water intrusion would only happen if they’ve been compromised for a long time. The untrained eye could miss even minor structural issues.
In preventive maintenance, no leak would surprise you because pros will uncover all causes for concern before they become bigger issues. Apart from bringing them to your attention, experienced roofers can tell you how much time you have to deal with them.
Fixing Problems Urgently
A routine inspection gives you the opportunity to keep minor problems minor. It allows timely roofing repairs, restoring your roof’s structural integrity and beauty when it’s faster and less costly to do. In the end, you can maximize your new roofing system’s service life and possibly eliminate the need for replacement in the future.
Regaining Lost Strength
New roofs are not impervious to storms. Even if environmental forces don’t cause yours to leak, they can do enough to make your shingles more susceptible to failure next time.
Other than having a preventive maintenance plan, scheduling an inspection after menacing weather is useful to assess your roof’s post-storm condition. It will empower you to take quick, corrective action to restore it to its full strength.
