Is your roof under attack?! Regular maintenance can target pests that are out to get your roof before it’s too late!

Termites and other pests may be damaging your roof and you would never know it! Out of sight, out of mind! Termites especially love roofing materials and can slowly but surely eat away at your home’s structure over time. Wasps, bees and other stinging insects can build a nest in your roof and cause damage to the shingles and roofing materials. These infestations can cause real problems if they aren’t identified and kept in check. 

Regular maintenance and roof inspections can identify many types of harmful pests before they cause a serious problem for your roof. When you clean and maintain your roof on a regular basis, these serious infestations can all be handled before they can do any real and lasting damage to the roof’s structure or roofing materials. Having your roof inspected regularly to catch these culprits is the smartest thing you can do! It’s important to stop these pests before they cost you time and money with costly repairs.

Clearing out the gutters is an essential part of regular roof maintenance! You’ll be glad you did!

Clearing out the gutters is an essential part of regular roof maintenance! You’ll be glad you did!

It may be seen as a dreaded job, but cleaning out your gutters regularly has lasting benefits to the life of your roof. Gutters are essential to your roof and channel water away from the base of your home. This helps prevent floods and decrease the possibility of damage to the home’s foundation which can be extremely costly. You don’t want to ignore your gutters!

It’s very important to keep the gutters in good working order. At least twice a year, you should examine or have someone else examine the gutters closely. Removing potential problems such as leaves, piles of dirt and tree branches keeps the roof in great shape and reduces the impact of sudden storms. Big storms can mean big problems for your roof and home if your gutters aren’t clear.

Several proven ways to clean your gutters include using a leaf blower, a power washer, a wet/dry vacuum, a garden hose or by hand. It’s important to address every clog or blockage because these can really cause damage in the long term. Regular roof maintenance may take some effort, but it’s worth it to your roof’s overall health and your peace of mind.

Overhanging branches can really damage your roof! Is it time for a trim?

Overhanging branches can really damage your roof! Is it time for a trim?

You might be checking your roof regularly for damaged shingles and roofing materials, but are you also keeping an eye on the trees surrounding your house? Over hanging branches can actually be more of a problem than you think.

Tree branches and leaves that touch your roof can eventually damage shingles, especially in high winds. Over time the abrasive scratching can cause real problems. Overhanging branches can also give squirrels and other rodents direct access to your roof where they can gnaw on your roof and siding. Tree-trimming also goes a long way toward keeping leaves and branches off your shingles to extend the life of your roof.

Regular roof maintenance and checkups, in addition to keeping overhanging branches at least ten feet away from your roof can really increase the longevity of your roof.

Have you checked the flashing and sealants on your roof lately?! You’ll be glad you did!

Have you checked the flashing and sealants on your roof lately?! You’ll be glad you did!

Regular roof maintenance should always include an inspection of the flashing and sealants. The flashing is a strip of metal that connects your skylights or chimney to your roof. Wind and weather can get underneath the flashing and rip it loose, causing mold and water damage. 

Most of the time when you notice a leak around a chimney or at the corners of your roofing, it’s because of an issue with your flashings. You should always be on the lookout for a loose flashing and tack it back on tightly. Also look for holes in the flashing. At the same time, you should check for cracked or weakened caulking used to keep the flashing in place. If needed, remove old caulking, scrape the area clean and apply fresh sealant. With regular roof maintenance, including paying attention to the flashing and sealants, you can often spot any problems early enough before any real damage occurs.

Does your roofing warranty completely protect you?  It’s important to find out!

Does your roofing warranty completely protect you? It’s important to find out!

Your existing roof came with a warranty, of course, but a warranty can often give you a false sense of security. Just because your roof came with a warranty doesn’t mean that it will always be repaired or replaced with no questions asked. There are many factors that can affect whether your current warranty will provide the coverage you think it will. 

Many roofing companies and roofing material manufacturers require that you get a professional inspection every few years. Some also require an inspection after a major weather event for their warranty to remain active. If you can’t show proof that your roof has been maintained, you may run into problems if you try to make a claim on your warranty.
