The roof is one of the most important parts of your home, and it deserves care and maintenance. Fortunately, roof maintenance isn’t as difficult as you might think. All you need to do is remember these simple maintenance tips.
Clean the Gutters Regularly
Your gutters will become clogged with leaves and other debris, especially after a storm. Clean them and flush them out regularly so that water flows freely through them.
Keep Trees and Bushes Trimmed
Tree limbs should not be touching your roof system, so trim them back if they start to get too long. Heavy branches can do a lot of damage if they break and fall onto your roof, so you don’t want them hanging over your home. This also goes for any branches and leaves that land on your roof after a storm.
Look for Moss and Algae
If you live in a particularly humid area, you might have problems with moss and algae growing on your roof. If you notice this, call a roofing professional to remove it as soon as possible.
Check Your Attic
If you have a leak in your roof, you will notice it in your attic before anywhere else. Look for signs of water damage or mold in your attic. If you see anything, you might have a problem with your roof that needs to be repaired.
Check Your Shingles
Asphalt shingles are constantly exposed to the elements. If you notice them peeling or cracking, you will need to have them replaced. Also look for granules from shingles in your gutters. Seeing too many of them could mean that your shingles are in bad shape.
