Easy Tips You Can Do to Extend Your Roof’s Life
There are various reasons why you love your roof. It protects you and your loved ones from harsh weather. It keeps you warm and dry during the wet and snowy season. It makes you feel covered—safe and protected—from any external perils. For these reasons alone, you will want to extend your roof’s life so you and your family can stay sheltered for a long time without having to shell out for costly repairs.
Before you start your pursuit in looking for trusted Surrey roofing contractors, try these helpful and easy-to-follow DIY maintenance tips first:
- Clean the gutters (at least once every three months)
Make sure you have the proper tools and equipment before doing this (i.e., ladder, heavy-duty gloves, water hose, and comfortable working clothes). Start cleaning near a waterspout. Remove all debris—leaves, branches, and the like—that may cause clogging. If there are trees near the rooftops, trim overhanging twigs so that they won’t rub your roof. If you fail to do this on a regular basis, you are risking your roof from needless water damage.
- Keep an eye on ice dams. Ice dams may develop in winter when the snow on the roof is not melting completely. These can be tough on your roof.
- Watch for popped-up nails. In case this happens, use a hammer and pound the nails, gently but firmly, to avoid a loose roof panel.
- Perform a regular roof inspection for damage control
Look for early signs of leaks, cracks, discoloration, rusting, and mold growth. The earlier you find these, the greater your chance of saving your roof. Don’t wait until the damage becomes irreparable.
