Roof maintenance is a topic that many people are not conversant with. It may seem like roof maintenance is just for commercial buildings, but the truth is every home needs to be checked for roofing problems. Solution Roofing can provide you with all of your roof’s needs so that it will last as long as possible!
Roof maintenance means inspecting the roof for any potential problems and maintaining it as needed to prolong its life.
Benefits of regular roof maintenance
Regular roof maintenance can provide many benefits. We have prepared a list of some of the most important ones below:
• Roofs that are looked after will typically last longer than those not checked regularly for problems. Solution Roofing offers inspections to check your roof’s health and any signs of wear or damage, so you know what issues need addressing immediately!
• Some roofs have never been adequately maintained by their owners, which means they may temporarily be on their homes. If this is true for you, regular maintenance on your home can save time in transitioning to another location if necessary.
When is roof maintenance not advised?
Roof maintenance is not advised in some cases, such as when storm clouds are approaching, because this could lead to a dangerous situation where lightning strikes your home due to increased conductivity on your roof after the rain has made it wet.
Our technicians will inspect your home before advising about whether moss removal would be beneficial so that we can work with you to ensure that your roof remains in excellent condition.
What is involved in roof maintenance?
Inspecting roofs for any visible problems
We will check for any loose or missing shingles, holes in the roof, and other issues that could cause a safety hazard.
A roof is much easier to maintain when you use our non-pressure rooftop services that are safe for plants and other materials on your rooftop. Hence, we always recommend using soft washing techniques before using harsh chemicals or pressure washers if needed!
Checking the roof for any loose or missing shingles
We will check your entire roof to ensure there are no raised nails, exposed staples, torn seams, worn-out felt paper beneath tiles where water can leak through if not sealed properly.
Moss removal from roofing shingles
Moss can be a huge problem for roofs because it acts like sandpaper and slowly wears away the surface of your shingles, which means they will need to be replaced sooner than otherwise necessary.
Gutter cleaning and repair, replacement, or installation if needed
Guttering is vital because it controls runoff from the rain, so we always recommend keeping them clean of debris, so they do their job correctly – which means less frequent inspections by our technicians when you engage us to provide regular maintenance services on your gutters!
Frequently asked questions
What do you inspect?
We check every part of the roof, including skylights, flashings and roof penetrations (vent pipes), chimneys, gutters, and downspouts, as well as attic insulation.
How often should I have my roof inspected?
Ideally, we recommend an annual roof inspection. However, if you have a steep or complex roofing system or extensive moss growth on your shingles, we suggest having your home inspected every six months to ensure all issues are caught early!
How do you maintain a roof?
We recommend sealing the roof at least every two years, and we offer a full range of roofing services, including:
• moss removal from all types of roofs (tile, wood shake, metal)
• gutter cleaning and repair or replacement when needed. We also install gutter guards to help prevent future clogging!
How often should I clean my chimney?
Setting up an annual maintenance appointment with us is recommended for best results in preventing any damage caused by excess creosote buildup on your flue tiles. This will ensure you’re able to use your fireplace safely and efficiently throughout the year while minimizing the risk of fire hazards in addition to potential property damages.
How do I prolong the life of my roof?
To extend the life of your roof, it’s essential to perform regular maintenance on the property. This includes inspecting roofs for any visible problems and checking the condition of shingles, including loose or missing ones. Another essential step is to ensure gutters are clean, free from clogs, and installed correctly to drain away water effectively.
