Roof Maintenance

Roof maintenance is very important. You may not need a new roof, but you should tend to any possible problems your roof and related components may have especially as it ages. If you are unable to maintain your roof yourself, please call a qualified roofing company to come out and assess any visual or structural problems you may be experiencing.

Common Roof Maintenance Issues

Some common issues that need to be maintained and repaired are flashings that have weakened or deteriorated, missing or damaged shingles, low hanging or resting tree branches on roof or home, exposed nail heads, rusty valley metal, chimney mortar that has deteriorated or cracked, and jack pipe flashings or gaskets that have come loose or cracked. Sometimes you will know that one or more of these things has gone wrong in your roofing system if you have a leak. Other times, you may see the issues from the ground or while doing other home improvements. Either way, be sure you are mindful of the necessary upkeep of your roof, as it is takes the most damage from the elements but serves to protect everything else you value inside your home.
