Professional roofing contractors like RainTech Roofing, Sheet Metal & Gutters can guarantee your new roof’s long life because we only use the best materials and tools, and we also make sure the installation is the best in the industry.
There are reasons a roof can fail, however, even if you’d hired the best contractor to install it. This is where proper homeowner maintenance comes in. Here are some ways you can extend your roof’s life.
Check the Roof for Cracks
Cracked, deformed or missing shingles are a sign that your roof needs some immediate attention. As it is unsafe to climb on your roof, particularly without a harness and other safety gear, it’s a good idea to do what you can from the ground. Get a pair of binoculars, and perform a visual check. Anything out of the ordinary might be your signal to call a professional.
Keep Your Gutters Clean
An effective gutter system can efficiently direct water from your roof to your downspouts and away from your home. Maintain it by removing accumulated debris, which can clog your gutters and downspouts, and cause all sorts of problems. We offer an efficient gutter service for a more thorough cleaning as we understand that this activity is not without its risks.
Prevent Ice Dams
Ice dams form at the edge of your roof and on your gutters. This is usually a sign that your roof lacks proper ventilation. The trapped heat in the attic makes the roof hot, so snow melts on it and flows to the edge, where it refreezes. Ice dams may look pretty, but they trap water, forcing it to back up into your shingles, causing water damage.
We can help you solve this problem. We’ll remove the ice dams and discuss with you how we can improve your attic vents.
Be Vigilant About Maintenance
Maintenance is the key to extending your roof’s life. As part of our roofing services, we can help you keep tabs on your roof’s health. We will set up a maintenance schedule to prevent problems from showing up or to fix any issues before they become too big and too expensive to correct.
