Roofing Maintenance Guide: When To Bring In A Roofer

Your roof serves the very important purpose of protecting your home from above. Therefore, roofing maintenance should not be ignored. We’ve put together this guide so you know what needs to be done, and which occasions call for a professional’s assistance.

Annual Roofing Inspections

It’s a good idea to have your roof assessed by a professional roofer once per year. You can visually inspect your roof periodically, but to get a true idea of its condition you’ll need an expert to get on a ladder and take a closer look. This will help you to keep on top of any issues like cracks, mould, algae or animal activity that’s causing damage. Catching these issues early will ensure they’re quicker and easier to fix, and therefore less expensive.

Clean Your Gutters

Your gutters need to be cleaned at least once per year. This is a smelly, dirty job that’s best left to a professional. If your home is situated near lots of trees or if birds make a habit of nesting in your gutters, you may want to clean them more than once annually. Allowing debris to build up can damage your roof, as the gutters overflow and allow water to seep in.

Fix Any Damaged Roofing Quickly

Any damage needs to be fixed quickly. This is particularly urgent in poor weather conditions. Damp can set in very fast when your roof is compromised, which can cause further issues with the ceilings, walls and structure of your home.

There are many things that can cause problems with your roof. Poor weather, fallen trees, lack of maintenance and animal activity can lead to punctures, sagging or holes.

Replace Your Old Roof

The longevity of your roof will depend on what materials it’s made of. However, it will need to be replaced towards the end of its life. With good care and attention, some roofs can last for over a hundred years. However, it’s always best to get a professional opinion when your roof has been around for some time. Near to the end of its lifespan, you’ll experience more issues and run the risk of needing expensive repairs.

If you’re getting regular annual inspections, your roofer will be able to give you an estimate of how long it will last, so you can put money aside for your roof replacement.
