Your roof is a sturdy structure, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need to maintain it. If you’ve just recently installed a brand new roof, then you know how big of an investment it is. And obviously, you’ll want to make sure your investment lasts a long time.
Fortunately, we have a few maintenance tips to extend the life span of your roofing.
Attic And Ventilation
Your home’s attic space plays a big role in ventilating your home and it also keeps your roof healthy. An attic that’s too dry isn’t good for your roof and neither would a too-moist one. To ensure the health of your roof and good comfort levels throughout your home, your attic needs to be properly ventilated. Installing a roof vent or a fan in your attic might be all you need to keep your roof healthy.
Preventive Roof Repair
We suggest doing preventive roof repair on your roofing system, such as addressing leaks. Even a small leak can pose a big problem in the future when they could grow in size in just a matter of weeks.
The cost of repairing a small leak now is paltry when you compare to how expensive a larger hole in the roof is to address. Large leaks also put your roof at risk to water intrusion and will also negatively affect attic ventilation.
Clean The Gutters
Finally, make sure your gutters are part of your complete roof maintenance plan. A clogged roof is a roof risk since the extra weight in the gutters will make them pull away from the fascia boards, which can damage your roof if you leave it as it is. Clean gutters also ensure that water coming from the roof is properly diverted away from your property.
