Some homeowners take their roofs for granted and only pay attention to it when something goes wrong. The mentality of “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” is not a good approach to take when maintaining your roof. Regular preventive maintenance will save you money and help improve your roof’s lifespan and performance.
Maintenance Extends Your Roof’s Lifespan
The best reason to schedule roof maintenance is because it can extend your roof’s service and lengthen the time between roof replacements. With regular maintenance, you can expect an asphalt shingle roof to last for decades. This allows you to get the most out of your roof replacement project. A roofer will be able to spot roofing issues early and prevent them from turning into roof leaks that may compromise the integrity of the roof.
Maintenance Protects Your House
Regular maintenance will also help prevent structural damage to your house and protect your interior from water damage. Roof leaks can damage the underlayment, roof decking and the wooden parts of the roofing structure. Even a small roof leak can cause damage that’s expensive to repair if the leak is left unattended for a long time. As one of the most experienced roofers in our area, we highly recommend scheduling regular roof maintenance.
Maintenance Saves Money
When professionals maintain your roof, they will carefully evaluate its condition, note down any problem areas and then make recommendations on how to repair current issues and prevent problems in the future. In general, the smaller a problem is and the earlier it is caught, the less it costs to fix. Regular roof maintenance can save you a lot of money over the lifetime of your roof.
