Roof Maintenance is more important than you may think!
Keeping your roof clear of debris will enable proper watershed off of your roof. This will prevent the water from backing up under tiles or shingles on a pitched roof, and on flat roofs it will keep down spouts and scuppers clear for water to flow off.
With periodic high winds and Monsoon rains checking to make sure all tiles are fastened tightly and in the proper place and that all shingles are securely adhered to the roof deck is important. This will maintain the integrity of the roofing system and prevent leaks from starting.
Roof maintenance can extend the life of your roof.
Its easy for something small like cracks in roof tiles, mortar joints, shingles and even stucco to cause a much larger leak in your roof. Having a qualified pair of eyes accustomed to finding those small issues will prevent it from becoming a bigger and more expensive problem in the future.
Its quicker, easier and more cost effective than waiting for that issue to turn into a leak. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
A roof is designed to be resilient and durable. It can withstand all kinds of weather conditions for decades, before it needs to be replaced. However, the roof will only last for a long time if you maintain it well and ensure all problems are addressed quickly. At Dry Plus Roofing, we encourage our customers to get the roof inspected and maintained every year.
Roof maintenance should be meticulous and thorough because small and unchecked problems can eventually grow to become disasters. Regular maintenance will help keep your roof in good condition and minimize your repair expenses. Here’s a look at what’s included in regular roof maintenance:
Accumulated debris can cause a considerable amount of damage to the roof, especially if they’re damp and create favorable conditions for moss and pests on the roof. The roof shingles, gutters, and downspouts should be cleaned regularly in order to preserve the strength and physical condition of the roof. Our experts will clean every corner for the roof and ensure it remains undamaged. The debris collected from the roof and gutters will be transported to safe disposal sites so you don’t have to deal with the mess.
Clogs in the roof drainage system can cause ice dams, water damage, extensive leakage, etc. These clogs can happen due to debris, granular shedding from the shingles, and even ice and snow. Roof drain clearance services will ensure the entire drain is completely cleared and the water flows smoothly through the drainage system and is carried away from your property. A fully functional drainage system ensures there’s no water damage or ice dams during snow or rain storms. It’s important to clear your roof drains after autumn and before winter.
If your roof is leaking and causing water damage, it needs to be sealed. A professional will examine all areas of the roof and find with cracks and gaps in the surface. They’ll use caulk to form a seal around all pipes, flashings, and installations so the moisture and water doesn’t penetrate the surface and seep into the house.
