Roof Maintenance Dallas
Roof Maintenance Tips
If you want your roofing to last a long time, you have to make sure you choose the right roofing material and that you keep it well-maintained. There are many steps you can take to keep your roofing well-maintained. These tips include:
Having an annual inspection
Having your roofing inspected at least once a year helps ensure that no severe damage has occurred to your roofing and that, if there is any damage, the damage can be repaired as soon as possible by roofing experts.
While we’d encourage you to have your roofing inspected more than just once a year, we strongly encourage homeowners to have their roofing inspected at least once per year.
A roofing expert can inspect your roofing and make sure to make repairs to any damage they find. Worst comes to worst, they will have to schedule a roofing replacement. However, this is only the case if your roofing is severely damaged and past the point of repair. If you have your roofing inspected and well-maintained, you should be able to keep your roofing for many years to come.
Keep gutters clean
Backed up gutters can lead to shingles starting to absorb rainwater and end up rotting and causing mold growth. You don’t want this happening to your roofing, and there’s an easy solution to this issue – make sure your gutters are clean! All you have to go is clear your gutters of leaves every once in a while.
Trim trees on your property
Trees, aside from possibly falling onto your home during a thunderstorm, can also cause other damage to your homes roofing. Generally speaking, most roofing options can withstand moisture well. However, roofing options like wood must be able to dry properly after a storm, in direct sunlight. If you have a large tree with thick foliage, the wood shingles will not be able to dry properly, which can lead to rotting and mold growth.
Additionally, overgrown tree branches can end up scratching your home and roofing pretty badly. That’s why it’s so important to keep your trees trimmed.
Repair damaged shingles
Shingles are what protect the exterior of your roofing, so you want to make sure that they’re all in great shape. If you, or the professional roofing inspector you hire, notice a damaged shingle (or shingles), make sure to have them repaired as soon as possible to protect the integrity of your roofing.
If a roofing inspector is taking a look at your roofing and notices damage, they will repair the shingles. If you’re looking at your roofing on your own, you’ll need to mark the damaged areas and have a roofing expert make repairs. While most roofing materials shouldn’t be damaged, it’s always better to check beforehand to avoid further damage.
