5 Benefits of Regular Roof Inspections and Maintenance

by Charlie Brown on Jul 3, 2017

Most homeowners forget about their roofs because it is one space that is unseen. However, just like other parts of your home, the roof needs general maintenance. Your roof can easily be affected by the changing weather patterns and accumulating debris. This will guarantee maximum performance and increase the durability of your roofing system. Here are some advantages of regularly inspecting your roof system.

Aging and weathering

All roofs tend to have a useful life set by the manufacturer. Roofs that have a single ply tend to last for about 15 to 25 years and those with multiple layers can last for 20 to 30 years. All roofing systems and materials will undergo normal aging and weakening over time. Homeowners can easily notice the symptoms of aging of their roofs. With regular inspections, professionals can determine the areas that are worn out early enough. This ensures prompt maintenance which will prevent additional damage to your roof.

Extend the roof’s useful life

Roof repairs and replacement can be quite expensive for most homeowners. This is why one should try their best to ensure that their roofs last longer. Your roofing system will wear out with time due to factors such as hail, snow, rain, wind and debris. Carrying out preventive maintenance will detect any problems on your roof and address them before they cause further damage. This will help to extend the life of your roofing system.

Removing debris

Since the roof is on the exterior of your home, it is exposed to countless elements like wildlife and weather conditions. This can result in accumulation of debris such as leaves, twigs, firecrackers, and nesting materials that can damage your roof. During winter months, ice can also accumulate on the surface, causing further damage. Removing debris buildup will save you money that would be used for repairs and will enhance the safety of your home and assets.

Repair damages

If the roofing system of your home is not properly protected, it can be damaged by other contractors that are doing maintenance of other systems such as air conditioners. The roof can be damaged when mechanical access panels are not closed or when refrigerant containers are left lying on the roof surface. Regular roofer maintenance services usually include roof cleaning which ensures that your roof is clean and free from any damage.

Keeps your family healthy

Undetected leaks can enhance growth of mildew, mold and other poisonous substances that can be harmful to your health. With regular inspections, homeowners can detect these leaks and address the problems within the shortest time possible. This will protect your family because they will not inhale the spores released by these fungi.

With proper maintenance services, you will be able to retain the beauty and appeal of your roof. In addition, you will ensure that the energy efficiency of your roofing is at its optimum level.  Regular inspection and maintenance of your roof will ensure that it is in pristine condition all year round. As a result, you will have peace of mind because your assets and your family members will be protected at all times.
