A roof is a long-term investment. It should protect you and your dwelling for decades if it is regularly maintained. Here are three tips for giving your roof the longest life it can have.
Don’t Skimp at the Beginning
If you’re having a roof installed, it’s tempting to choose the lowest-priced building materials, but you will pay for that choice later due to more frequent repairs. Good roofers will recommend the best materials for your budget, and they also need to cover their workers’ wages, any necessary building permits, and disposal of materials.
Keep Up With Maintenance
Be sure to keep your roof free of fallen leaves and other debris. If you have gutters, you’ll need to make sure they don’t get backed up with leaves and other debris. If the water doesn’t drain properly, it can damage your shingles and the decking layer beneath them.
Fix Damage As Soon As Possible
If you notice visible damage, like a sagging area, or missing shingles, you should get help as soon as you can. This type of damage will just worsen over time, and could be causing even more damage that you can’t see. A professional roofer will be able to tell you exactly what’s needed.
