While it may not be immediately apparent, your roof may need more care and attention than you think. Month after month, all roofing systems are continuously subjected to a certain amount of damage, usually brought about by various weather conditions. Regular roof maintenance is, therefore, necessary to keep your roof safe from deterioration.
To keep your roof in prime condition, our team from Crown Roofing LTD. shares a few simple ways in today’s post, especially with the advent of fall.
Inspect Your Property
Do a thorough inspection of your entire property. Roofing materials may become detached, especially after particularly windy or stormy days, and end up lying around the perimeter of your home, unnoticed. From inside, examine your ceiling and walls for signs of possible water damage. These are easy to spot as water usually creates a stain on the ceiling or walls.
Clean Your Gutters
Clear gutters without clogging are great not only in helping keep water damage at bay, but also in serving as a way to catch shingle material that may be dislodged from your roof. Debris in the gutter may signal a need for roof repair. Call for help when you find tiles or shingles in your gutter.
Check Your Shingles
Cracked or missing shingles are never a good thing. These types of damage can make your roof and, consequently, the rest of your home vulnerable to the effects of moisture accumulation. They will likewise affect your home’s heating and cooling requirements, leading to a possible increase in energy bills.
