Roof Maintenance tips--------------------
There are many things which can go wrong with your roof. Should it be old age, lack of maintenance, a big storm, or even wildlife the health of your roof is important to your home. Regardless of the cause, these can all be avoided, keeping your roof in good working order for much, much longer than it would if you had not maintained your roof at all.
1.Clean your Gutters
If your gutters are not clean, they can allow a buildup of a large amount of water. This, in turn, will begin to damage the roof, thus encouraging things like wood to rot, and even the potential to grow moss.
2.Clear of any debris
Branches, twigs, leaves, anything which may fall onto your roof should be removed. If this is not attended to this can causes the same issues to appear much like when you do not clean your gutters, except it can happen anywhere on your roof, not around the edges like your gutters will if left unkept.
3.Inspect and repair all seals.
If you see something just getting a little worse for wear, you should repair it. Leaks never get better over time, so it is important that if you see one, you repair it with something like caulk, or have someone come out and repair it for you.
So, no matter the issues with your roof, you can help prevent all of them by performing proper maintenance, thus saving you money.
