Our roofs are incredibly important to our homes. Not only are they an intricate piece of protecting the structural integrity of our but they are also the key to protecting our families. Our roof is a huge investment and it is important to take great care of it. Just like anything else, car, appliances, pools, etc. there is maintenance that needs to be done regularly on your roof.
Many people think that you just slap one on and ignore it until it needs repair or replacement. But what if we told you there is an easy way to get more life out of your roof by getting regular maintenance dont on your roof? Think of it like you would think of getting an oil change or a yearly well check at the doctors office. Just schedule it for once a year and have a professional come and take a look.
Oftentimes, when we have a professionals come to do maintenance it will save money big time. That sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it? But it’s TRUE. When you catch small issues early you can, many times, make a smaller and easier repair. Luckily, when you use a good professional roofer to do your regular maintenance and inspection they are well trained to notice even the smallest malfunction going on with your roof.
Putting off regular maintenance can lead to a much larger problem or an early demise of your roof. Many roofing companies will only hold their warranties on your roof if you have regular maintenance done, this holds true for many “large buy” warranties. Having your roof inspected can tell you if there are any weak spots that can lead to water getting into your home and causing huge issues. These issues could be mold, wet rot, even structural damage to your beloved home. If your roof goes unmaintained then you are sure to have some issues sooner rather than later. Like mentioned above, it’s much easier (and cheaper) to catch an issue when they are small and manageable rather than when they grow in size.
One huge plus to having your roof inspected by a professional yearly is that they can just fix the problem. They have all the tools needed, more than likely, and they will be able to properly assess and repair the damage without hesitation. Hiring a random handyman may end up exaggerating the issues in the long run. Especially, if they don’t know exactly what they are doing. A professional roofer will check inside and out, front to back, and all around to make sure that your roof is in tip top shape.
As mentioned above, the roof is more than just a top layer on your home, it’s like the glue that holds it all together. It protects you, your loved ones and your valuable possessions from being ruined. So invest in yourself by investing in your roof, and get your roof it’s yearly check up.
