Caring for your roof involves more than repairing damaged shingles or patching holes in the system; it requires proactive maintenance. In today’s post, Earl W. Johnston Roofing, a leading roofing contractor in the area, shares the things you should know about maintaining your roof.
When to Maintain Your Roof
Many homeowners think being proactive means just looking at your roof after a storm. The truth is your roof needs as much maintenance as the other components of your home. In fact, it requires upkeep at least twice a year, as well as after a strong storm, to remain in good shape.
When is the ideal time to maintain your roofing system? We suggest a roof repair and inspection in spring and fall because of the moderate weather at these times of the year. Note, however, that these are peak seasons for your local contractor, so it’s best to schedule your roof maintenance session early. Don’t wait until the last leg of fall or spring to get in touch with your roofer.
Do-It-Yourself or Professional Roof Maintenance?
Your roof is more than the shingles; it’s a complex system of many different components that work together to keep your interior safe and dry. The proliferation of do-it-yourself instructions on the Internet, however, has led to the perception that roof maintenance is easier than it really is. This is a misguided notion that unwisely encourages many people to engage in DIY repairs.
Work with a licensed and insured roofing contractor for your roof maintenance, cleaning and replacement needs. An experienced professional can guarantee flawless workmanship that will enhance your home’s beauty, functionality and energy efficiency.
