With fall right around the corner, now is the perfect time to get your roof maintenance routine up to date. Or maybe you don’t have a maintenance routine at all and are looking to create one. No worries, we are here to help. Whether you are a do-it-yourself-er or looking for the best roofing contractor to do it for you, we’ve got you covered.
Making sure your roof is up to date, clean, and cared for can make all the difference for the rest of your home. Not only can it add value to your house if you are looking to sell. But it can also help you catch a problem early before it turns into something bigger.
We have compiled the ultimate list for you to make sure your roof is in top shape.
The Ultimate Roof Maintenance Checklist.
1.) Keep Your Gutters Clean
While this may seem like a chore it is important to make sure that your gutters are free from any leaves or other debris. Clogged gutters won’t direct the water away from your roof and foundation, potentially causing serious issues.
If you don’t want to worry about your gutters, Stonebridge Roofing offers gutter cleaning. Give us a call and we can get you taken care of!
2.) Trim Your Trees
Trim up any tree branches that are touching your roof. Letting branches rub against your roof can cause damage to your shingles and gutters.
3.) Clean Your Roof
It is ideal to clean your roof once a year, ideally during the fall. Ensure that you can get onto your roof safely then use a leaf blower to clean off any leaves or other debris.
4.) Check Your Shingles
Lookout for any cracked, curling, or missing shingles. If you notice any of these, then give us a call right away. We can take care of it before it turns into a bigger problem.
5.) Get Your Roof Inspected by a Contractor
We recommend getting your roof inspected by a roofing contractor once a year. As well as after a storm. Stonebridge offers free storm damage inspections. Call us if it has been a while since your last inspection.
Safety is the number one priority when you are taking care of your roof. Give us a call if you need any assistance!
Doing everything on the list can maximize the lifespan of your roof, saving you money in the long run.
