Inspect Flashing and Sealing. Flashing and sealing are your first line of defense against water. Leaks, if left unrepaired, can slowly cause serious damage. Luckily, this is easily avoided. Look for loosened flashing and any sealant that may be cracking or peeling.
Trim Back Branches. This is one of the easiest ways to prevent damage to your roof. Falling tree branches are a major cause of roof damage. If you have large trees very close to your home, you may even want to consider removing the tree entirely. Fewer trees near your roof means it’s safer and easier to keep clean. Additionally, other potential damage to your roof from ice storms, high winds, or electrical storms are all lessened when your trees are trimmed back!
Inspect Your Attic. Your roof maintenance should include an inspection of your attic at least once a year. Cooler temperatures can lead to moisture and condensation. If your attic isn’t properly ventilated, this can mean growth of mold and mildew! Additionally, your attic is often the first place you notice leaks. Look for tell-tale signs, such as discoloration and dampness. Be especially attentive around joints, seams, and vents. A simple, quick inspection can save you loads in the long run!
These simple tips can really make the difference in the long run.
