If you want your roof to continue to protect your home and family from the elements, you’ll need to provide the proper maintenance. Knowing which warning signs to watch out for, clearing off moss buildup, and working with a professional roofing company can help you enjoy an efficient roof for years to come. Here are a few tips for taking care of your home’s roof.
Understanding Warning Signs
The common problem that affects roofs and the homes they cover is leaks. Fortunately you can fix a leak up before it causes too much damage if you are familiar with the signs to look for. If it has been a while since your last roof inspection, take a walk around the house and look at your ceiling. Take notice of any dark areas or peeling paint, especially under roof overhangs. You should also inspect any pipes associated with your water heater or furnace.
Getting Rid of Moss
A beautiful roof can make your home more attractive, so be sure to keep it clean. Spray your moss with a killer designed for roofs once per year during the fall. You can then clear off any dead moss during the spring. Be sure to reapply the moss killer to any moss that remains during the spring, and then sweep off your roof and gutters.
Choosing a Professional
Working on a roof can be dangerous, and you might not have the experience to do the job properly; this is why it is wise to work with a professional. Talk to local friends and family members and use the Internet to identify a trustworthy roofing service to maintain your roof.
