The roof is an important part of the house. It protects you from harsh elements outside such as, intense heat, heavy rains, strong winds, etc. 

Roofing systems are designed to be strong and to last for around 20 years. But that doesn’t mean it is immune from the harmful outdoor elements that could cause decay and deterioration. 

Like any other part of your home, your roof needs to be maintained to make it last longer and for it to continue its job of protecting you and your family. 

Lack of proper roof maintenance could spell more repairs, or worse, replacement. 

Avoid this from happening. Here are some easy tips to take care of your roof and extend its life. 

Inspect your roof regularly. 

It helps when you know the state or condition of your roof. This way, you’ll know what measure you need to do to maintain your roof’s top condition. Check your roof regularly, during spring or after a storm occurs. You don’t really have to get on your roof to check it. You can do your visual inspection by going up a ladder or by just walking around your house. 

Keep your roof clean. 

Maintain a clean roof by removing anything that lands on your roof, like leaves, branches, trash, etc. Not only would debris collect moisture, it would also clog your gutters which could lead to roof leaks. 

Trim overhanging tree branches. 

Trim the tree branches overhanging on your roof. This is to prevent fallen leaves from accumulating on your roof or branches from grazing and damaging your roof. Untrimmed branches could also be used by critters or pests to get to your home. 

Clear your roof of excess water. 

Water puddles on your roof should not occur. Your roof should not collect water so make sure no accumulation could happen. So clean off your drainage system and the pipelines to maintain a healthy roof. 

Avoid walking on your roof. 

Make sure that the only time you go up the roof is when you need to inspect something up close. Otherwise, try to stay off it as much as possible. Waking on your roof means additional wear and tear, which could shorten your roof’s lifespan. 

Check the inner parts of your roof too. 

Your roof is not only confined to the outside part. You also need to make sure there are no signs of cracks, damage or deterioration on your ceiling. You can also add more ventilation to keep moisture out of your ceiling and roof. 

Seek professional help.
