All major roofing manufacturers require that roofing systems with NDL (No Dollar Limit) warranties receive regular roof maintenance in order to keep the guarantee in good standing. We’re here with a few tips and tricks to help you elongate the life of your roofing system.
Know The Lifespan Of Your Roof:
Do you know how old your roof is? Do you know what kind of roof system protects your home or business? Surprisingly, many commercial and residential property owners don’t know the answers to these questions. Knowing the age of your roof, the type of roof you have and when the last inspection was conducted will help you to prepare for future maintenance and potentially avoid costly and unexpected repairs.
Know Your Roof Ventilation System:
It’s important to know the status of your roof ventilation system. Poor ventilation can lead to some serious problems and even more costly repairs. Roofs that are not properly ventilated can lead to dramatic mold issues here in Southwest Florida. A simple roof inspection can quickly show you if your roof is properly ventilated. If not, installing the proper roof ventilation system can wind up saving you thousands in the long run.
Know That Leaks Aren’t Always From Physical Holes:
Water damage can result from a plethora of problems, not just a hole in your roof. Leaks can oftentimes happen because of poor workmanship, sidewalls, boots, flashing, skylights and/or valleys. Holes in your roof are almost always obvious, but leaks are rarely obvious. Regular inspection of your roof by a trained technician can help you to identify problem areas in your roof susceptible to leaks.
Keep Your Gutters Tidy:
Although it can be a tough chore, it’s important to make it a priority. We’re talking about cleaning your gutters. At least twice a year, you should be clearing debris and other problematic materials from your home’s gutters. Buildup can wind up causing both mold issues and leaks. Gutter leaks can not only damage the exterior of your home, but can result in some awfully costly repairs. If you wait until it’s too late, damage could be irreversible – and expensive.
Know When Your Roof Needs An Inspection:
Having a professional inspect your roof routinely can save you both time and money. We recommend, at minimum, a yearly inspection by one of our roofing specialists. In this case, we can catch leaks and/or potential problem areas in your roof and perform the repairs before a costly accident.
