5 Ways to Protect Your Roof From Damage
Your roof is responsible for protecting everything you love beneath it. The following are 5 ways to protect your most valuable investment.
1. Consult a professional if you have concerns
Seeking the help of a reputable roofer can help answer any questions or concerns you may have when it comes to your roof.
2. Keep trees around your property trimmed & maintained
Low hanging branches can cause severe damage if they break and hit your roof, at the same time, shady areas created by leaves can cause mold and algae to build up on your roof, causing the roofing materials to change color and break down prematurely.
3. Have annual inspections performed
Yearly roof inspections can help catch minor and serious damage that needs repaired before mother nature, insects, birds and other critters can infiltrate, causing severe damage to your home.
4. Make sure your ventilation is up to snuff
Well ventilated roofs last much longer than a roof that is lacking proper air flow. Believe it or not, your home and it's roof need to breath.
5. Get & stay insured
Insurance is typically required when you buy a home, however, some homeowners will let their insurance lapse. Should your roof incur damage while you’re uninsured, the entire cost of repairing any damage to your roof or home will fall directly on your shoulders. These costs can cost upwards into the thousands, so before you consider letting your insurance lapse, first consider that the cost of repairs can be exorbitantly higher than the cost of simply paying for insurance.
Knowing how to keep your home in the best possible condition, at all times -throughout every season- is definitely a tedious task, but the pay off is worth it's weight in gold. No matter what your home endures, if you treat it right, it will pay you back in kind.
