Everyone knows that roof replacements are expensive. And the last thing you need, especially this time of the year is the financial burden of a roof replacement. Luckily, there are some things you have within your power that can prevent these unexpected and costly situations. Below are 3 steps to take to preserve your roof and keep it in tip-top shape.
1. Regular Roof Inspections and Maintenance
You don’t have to have an issue with your roof to take out a ladder and do an inspection. As they say, prevention is better than cure. If you are a homeowner you know just how expensive it is to keep it in good shape which is why it’s better to do regular inspections of your roof before you get stuck with expensive problems. The older your home, the more often we suggest you do an inspection. No roof is made to last forever but if taken care of, you can definitely extend its lifespan.
2. Be Diligent with Roof Repairs
Don’t wait too long for roof leak repairs and other issues should they arise. The elements of nature, as well as birds and pests, can take its toll on your roof and if you want to avoid an expensive roof replacement, it’s a good idea to fix small problems before they become big.
3. Roof Waterproofing
Another way to ensure the longevity of your roof is to apply a waterproof membrane to keep out any moisture. Excess water is extremely damaging since it can cause structural failure caused by rotting trusses.
