Take Better Care of Your Roof in 4 Ways
It’s important to pay ample attention to our roofs year in and year out. Last year, in particular, hasn’t been easy. Extreme heat and heavy rains have proven to be tough opponents, but our good ol’ roofs didn’t give in. Make 2015 the year you give back for all the hard work your roof has done for your home. Give it a pat on the back by following this checklist.
- Roof cleanup. Remove debris and litter accumulated on the roof surface during fall and winter. Give your trees a much-needed trim. Make sure they’re a good 10 feet away to prevent leaves or twigs from landing on your roof.
- Moss, mold, and mildew removal. These nasty spots don’t just take away from the beauty of your roof. They can also lead to bigger problems if left unchecked. Molds, particularly, can trigger potentially serious health complications, such as asthma attacks, sinus infection, and allergies. Give your roof a good scrubbing to remove the grime. Exercise caution when using chemical solutions and wear proper safety gear when you’re up on your roof.
- Gutter cleanup. Gutters are still part of your roof—important ones at that. So don’t forget about them. We talked about removing leaves and debris on the roof surface. Do this for your gutters as well. Clean and clog-free gutters ensure that water flows freely, away from your home and into the drainage, as it should.
- Professional assistance. Call in expert roofing contractors in Hampton Roads to inspect and assess the overall condition of your roof. Not that we shouldn’t trust our own eyes for this, but sometimes even the most meticulous of homeowners can overlook problems that may turn into bigger issues later on. It’s best to get expert eyes to have a look at your roof at least once a year. Squeeze in repairs and replacement projects while they’re there.
