The Ins and Outs of Roof Repair and Maintenance

A Beginner’s Guide to Roof Repair and Maintenance

Taking care of your roof can seem like a big task, particularly if you aren’t the do-it-yourself type. However, roof repair and maintenance might be easier than you think. There are simple things you can do throughout the year to keep your roof at its best:

  • Conduct a visual assessment: You can be afraid of heights and still do this task without any worry. While standing in your yard, aim a pair of binoculars at your roof and check for any problems. Are there peeling or loose shingles? Do you see any moss and algae build-up? Regularly checking for potential issues is an easy way to address problems early before they wreak havoc on your roof.
  • Get an annual roof inspection: If your roof is over 10 years old, it is best to get a certified professional to take a closer look at your roof and take care of any small issues, like cleaning out your gutters, scrubbing away moss build-up, and checking for leaks.

When to Call a Professional

Roof repair and maintenance can be tricky, so it’s best to call a professional when it comes time to do extensive repairs. When searching for a professional to do work, look for a contractor that is GAF certified. A contractor can perform your roof maintenance and repair efficiently and safely.

In the case of a leaky roof, you’ll always want to rely on an expert. If you try to take on the repair yourself, you could be missing cracks that could lead to devastating consequences. If you feel you must try your own roof repair or maintenance, make sure to pick a sunny day and always wear safety ropes.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
