3 Ways to Increase the Life of Your Roof
How old is your roof? Is it in good shape? When you have a roof over your head, you want to protect it, because it protects you, your family, and your home. To get the most out of it, take a look at three ways to increase its lifespan.
#1: Watch the Gutters
Your gutters and downspouts are there to direct water away from your roof and your home. If they get clogged with leaves, dirt, and debris, water can’t flow through them. When this happens, you risk water damage to your roof, leading to leaks and premature breakdown of your roofing material.
#2: Trim Branches
Big trees with lots of branches make for a wonderfully shady house and yard. But when branches get too close to your house, even a moderate storm can blow them down onto your roof. To keep your roof lasting longer, trim the trees and branches that hang close to your home.
#3: Get a Professional Inspection
Only a roofing professional can accurately evaluate the state of your roof. An annual inspection by a pro can help identify any small issues. Addressing small damage is much easier than taking care of extensive damage. These minor repairs can extend the life of your roof and prevent the need for early replacement.
The biggest factors in your roof’s quality and longevity of are the quality of the materials used, the workmanship, and the attention you give it throughout the year. But you don’t have to get on a ladder and manage your roof care yourself. The team at Premiere Roofing has got you covered.
