The Best Way To Extend Your Roof's Service Life

A good and well-built residential roof can keep the home’s inhabitants safe and secure against harsh outdoor elements. But to ensure that it stays effective, it should be properly checked and maintained by a professional roofing contractor. There are also other points to keep in mind to extend your roof’s lifespan.


Repair Your Damaged Roof as Soon as Possible

Keep in mind that even the smallest issues should be addressed properly to prevent more damage to the rest of your home. To ensure your roof lasts as long as its expected lifespan, it helps to repair any minor damage found on your roof. For instance, if your roof is damaged because you have water leaks, a professional roofer should address the problem to ensure the repair is successful. Otherwise, the water damage will cause additional damage to your roof over time.

Don’t Do the Inspections Yourself

It’s strongly recommended that you shouldn’t do the inspections and repairs by yourself as it can be dangerous while also risking a voiding your warranty. There’s also no guarantee that you’ll do a good job; you might miss some damaged components that can affect other parts of your roof over time, which can end up in a costly roof repair. Make sure to schedule regular maintenance checks with a trusted roofing company.

Get a Preventive Maintenance Program

Having your roof checked regularly by a trusted roofing company ensures that it will last beyond its life expectancy. Normally, a roof can last 10 to 15 years with hardly any maintenance, but that can double if it’s maintained carefully and regularly over its lifetime. This is a big difference, especially if you won’t move anytime soon. The overall cost is cheaper in the long run if you replace it every 20 years with a professional maintenance program instead of every 10 years with little to no maintenance.
