Mesa, AZ Preventative Roof Maintenance
Value – this is what every homeowner wants from their homes, especially their roof. With preventive maintenance, you’ll get additional years out of your roof and save some money.
As noted by statistics, while the construction of a roof only costs 10% of the total expense of building, it uses up to 90% of the cost of future maintenance. Your roof lasting years past its initial warranty period is a result of conducting routine maintenance inspections.
The most common items to look for are:
- Paint peeling on eves or overhangs
- Rusted flashing
- Cracked or missing caulking around skylights or chimneys
- Bare spots on asphalt shingles
- Missing or damaged shingles or other surface material
- Curled or buckled shingles
Apart from outer examinations, see to it that these regular maintenance objects are catered for so as to stretch the roof’s longevity further.
Clean out the gutters on a regular basis
Gutters play an essential role in keeping your roof dry and free from moisture. Rain and melting snow will flow from your roof and into the gutters, where it will run safely to the ground. Items stuck to your gutters can result in damaged roof and fascia.
Make it a habit to check and clean out your gutters every six months or so. Finding loose gravel in your roof’s gutter is a significant sign of deterioration and an indicator that it is high time to replace the roof.
Trim your trees to lower the risk of damage
You may love the look of beautiful, mature trees on your property, but you may not be aware of the risk they pose to your roof. Limbs can break off and fall onto your roof if close enough. Fallen leaves could accumulate and collect some moisture within.
Replace broken or missing shingles
Regular asphalt shingles can wear thin and fall off over time. Any space in your roofing can permit the accumulation of moisture consequently leading to leakages and decomposition. As soon as you see signs of wear or if you see shingles missing, replace them immediately.
Reseal and caulk around vents and pipes
Openings, such as chimneys, pipes, skylights, and vents are vulnerable points in your roof. You must seal around these components with caulking or roofing tar to prevent moisture infiltration.
