SIMPLE ROOF MAINTENANCE CHECKS YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW

It takes a lot of hard work to make sure that a home remains in a good condition. But if you want to keep your house in great form for years or even decades, you must put in the work to inspect, maintain and care for each of its components. And the most important part? Any roofing company would say the roof.

Caring for your roof may seem like a daunting task, but regular roof inspections are an important part of your home’s maintenance. This is why, in today’s post, Billings Construction Group outlines several ways to maintain your roof.

Sweep Debris Off

Clean excess debris from your roof by either sweeping them or using a blower. Leaves, sticks and other debris, if not removed, can cause algae growth, clog your gutters or scratch and damage your roof shingles.

Keep Your Gutters Clear

Eliminate water and debris build-up by cleaning your gutters and clearing blockage. If left neglected, water will not be drained from your roof and end up seeping into your roof’s most vulnerable parts, rotting it from within. Any siding contractor would also say that water from a clogged gutter system can also spill to your siding, causing water damage.

Rake Snow Away

During winter, regularly remove snow from your roof by using a snow rake to lessen the accumulated snow. If the snow builds up, it might become too heavy for your roof to accommodate. As a result, the roof will cave in, exposing your interior to the outside.

Trim Tree Nearby Branches

Trim or cut off tree branches that are hanging over your house’s roof. This can usually invite critters and wildlife to crawl around atop your house, drop some fruits, nuts, or sticks or even infest your attic or roof vents.

Watch Out for Mold and Algae

Regularly check your roof for moss, algae or fungus build-up. If not removed, these can cause rot or decay on your roof. While the damage they cause directly is minimal, they are unsightly.
