Your roofing system needs proper care and regular maintenance if you want it to last for decades. AIC Roofing and Construction can help keep your roof in great shape with our roof inspections and roof repair services. Today, we’ll provide tips to help you maximize your roof’s life span:
- Keep an Eye on Your Roof – Paying attention to your roof and ceilings costs no money at all but it can prevent plenty of problems. Make a conscious effort to glance at your roof every day. Catching issues early can save you money by preventing costly roof repairs. Keep an eye out for any patches or cracks, missing shingles, damaged flashings or any appearance of leaning or sagging in your roofing system. Call us if you spot any problems.
- Follow an Active Maintenance Routine – Regular maintenance can greatly improve the life span and performance of your roofing system. Work with us to schedule professional roof inspections at least twice a year. We can conduct a thorough evaluation and assessment of your roof’s condition. We can catch minor issues that are not visible with simple visual inspection and prevent them from turning into roof problems.
- Focus on Preventive Care – The right measures will go a long way towards extending your roof’s service life. First, make sure that your attic has suitable insulation. Good insulation can prevent water vapor from pooling on the underside of your roof, and it can also help improve your home’s energy efficiency. Proper ventilation goes hand-in-hand with good insulation, and it will help prevent roof damage. Lastly, make sure that there are no overhanging tree limbs that are close to your roof. This greatly reduces the risk of a tree branch damaging your shingles.
