5 Roof Maintenance Tips from Orion Roofing and Sheet Metal
Welcome to Orion Roofing and Sheet Metal’s weekly roofing tips series! Proper roof maintenance is crucial for the longevity and efficiency of your home or business, and we want to help you keep your roof in top shape. Here are this week’s tips:
- Keep your gutters clean. Clogged gutters can cause water to back up and damage your roof, siding, and foundation. Make sure to clean your gutters regularly, especially after storms.
- Trim back trees and branches. Overhanging branches can damage your roof and provide easy access for pests. Trim back any branches that come into contact with your roof to prevent damage and pest infestations.
- Inspect your roof regularly. Look for missing or damaged shingles, rust on metal roofs, and any other signs of wear and tear. If you notice any issues, have them repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
- Keep your roof free of debris. Leaves, sticks, and other debris can hold moisture against your roof, leading to rot and other damage. Make sure to sweep your roof regularly to remove any debris.
- Consider a roof inspection from a professional. Even if you don’t notice any issues, it’s a good idea to have a professional inspect your roof every few years. They can catch problems that you may have missed and recommend any necessary repairs.
Always Check Your Warranty
Another key point, also recommended by GAF Roofing, is to always check your warranty. Maintaining your roof is a crucial part of keeping your warranty in tact:
“Before any work begins, be sure to research the details of your warranty. In some cases, manufacturers’ warranties remain valid only if specially certified contractors make repairs.”https://www.gaf.com/en-us/for-homeowners/how-to-maintain-your-roof
