Here's How You Can Effectively Extend Your Roof's Lifespan

It’s reassuring to have a solid roof over your head since you know that your family is kept safe and secure indoors. But to ensure that your roof stays effective against inclement weather and other harsh outdoor elements, regular maintenance is necessary to keep it in good condition. It should also be done by a professional roofing contractor who can identify any sign of damage and make the necessary repairs. Regular care and maintenance can even extend your roof’s lifespan!

Extending Your Roof’s Service Life 

While it’s fine to do DIY inspections on your roof, you’re more likely to overlook some of the less-visible damage it may have sustained over time. You’re better off having licensed roofers do a thorough check as they’ll know which type of damage to look for on the surface as well as the inner frame and attic. If you DIY your repairs while the warranty is intact, you’ll most likely end up voiding its coverage. Most warranties require professional maintenance, after all, as they’ll cover all the repair costs if necessary.

However, you can still do a few things to keep it in top form. This includes cleaning your gutters, which help direct water runoff from your roof safely toward the downspouts and into the floor drain. Make sure to clean your gutters regularly to prevent damage to your roof. Otherwise, the leaves, branches and other debris start to accumulate clogs in the gutter system. This leads to water pooling in certain areas which can cause fascia board rot and seep into the inner roofing structure.
