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.

Want to check the condition of your roof? Grab a flashlight and head to the attic for an interior roof check!

Want to check the condition of your roof? Grab a flashlight and head to the attic for an interior roof check!

Performing a roof check from the inside out is a great way to get the whole story on the current condition of your roof.  Take a bright flashlight up to your attic and check for a few obvious signs that it might be time for a needed repairs. 

  • Before you turn your flashlight on, see if you notice any streams of light coming through cracks in your roof. If you do see any light coming through your roof, repair or replace your roof immediately. If light is getting through your roof, then water is also getting through your roof.
  • If you notice dark streaks and stains on the underside of the roof or running down the walls, then your roof is probably leaking, and this can really damage the roof and your home’s interior. If you do see sagging areas in your roof from below, use your hand or a broom to lightly touch the sagging spot. If the spot feels soft, wet or bends easily, you know you have water damage.
  • When you check for dark streaks and sagging areas also look for obvious water leaks or rotting on the inside. These signs of water damage should be addressed right away.

Is it finally time for a new roof?

Is it finally time for a new roof?

Here are a few obvious and not so obvious signs!

All roofs eventually reach the end of their life span despite years of careful maintenance. If you notice that your roof looks old and worn and you find yourself doing a lot of preventative maintenance, it might be time for a new roof.  

Here are some signs to be aware of that might indicate it’s time to replace your roof.

  • Shingle edges are cracked, curled or buckled. 
  • There are bald spots where granules are missing. 
  • Your roof is over 20 years old and just looks old and worn.
  • There is obvious moss on the roof indicating there may be trapped moisture.
  • The neighbors are getting new roofs. Homes built around the same time can wear out in the same timeframe.
  •  You have a droopy, sagging roof with signs of rotting boards, or sagging spots—especially at the lowest points in the roof.

Checking your own home improvement records gives you a good overview of your roof’s history including installation and repairs. This can make it clear to you that it is time to replace the roof.
