Self-improvement shouldn’t be the only thing that dominates your list of resolutions for the new year. Consider adding in there something related to your home, like your roof. 2021 should be the year you start giving your roof the attention it deserves. In this blog, local roofing and siding contractor Homecraft Inc. shares some of the roof maintenance habits to stick to for the rest of the year and beyond.
Invest in a Roof Inspection
Part of being a homeowner is taking care of your roof to ensure your home’s protection against the local climate. Hire a local roofer to inspect it thoroughly for your peace of mind, even if it looks good and in top condition from the ground. Schedule an inspection at least twice this year, one for the upcoming summer and another before next winter. This can help identify and fix problems with your roof before they become bigger and more costly repairs.
Clean Your Roof
Preserving your home’s curb appeal starts with keeping your exterior components well-maintained. Aside from your siding, make sure your roof is clean. Dead leaves, dirt and other debris that collect on your roof not only diminish your home’s beauty but also compromises your roof’s longevity. Pay attention to your gutters as well; they should be clear of clogs to ensure proper drainage.
Get Your Roof Repaired ASAP
If you see damaged flashing, missing shingles or signs of leaks on your roof, don’t delay. Failure to address these issues could result in your roof’s condition going from bad to worse. You don’t want a larger repair bill down the road, so get these fixed early.
