Routine inspections are an important part of roof maintenance. Since knowing what to look for is the key to spotting early warning signs of problems you may want to consider having a professional roofing specialist inspect your roof to look for existing or future problems. A professional can look for missing or damaged shingles, check for signs of fungus/Algae growth, check gutters for cracks or rust, and look for joints that may give way and start to leak.
Another important thing to check for is damage that may be present beneath the shingles. Hidden beneath the shingles, there may be broken seals and pulled/torn fasteners. This can be difficult to spot with a visual inspection from a ladder and is another important reason why you should consider calling Rosamond Elite Roofing.
Roof maintenance doesn’t have to be costly. Often, effective maintenance can be done within a couple of hours.
An important part of roof maintenance is making sure your drainage system is working properly. Having your gutters cleaned out twice a year is important for ensuring that your drainage is working properly, helping to extend the life of your roof. Keeping the gutters clear of all debris, leaves, and twigs, helps to prevent rot.
Additionally, keep branches trimmed back away from the roof to prevent serious damage in case of a storm.
