Routine roof maintenance is essential to maximize property protection and lengthen the lifespan of your roof. Every time there is a problem, the roof should be fixed right away because it is a crucial component of any building and can help you save money by preventing more expensive repairs. Unfortunately, a lot of people neglect their roofs, which eventually causes damage to build up. Allowing damage to build up raises the possibility of mould growth, wood deterioration, and excessive water damage while also endangering the structural integrity of your property. Learn more about appropriate roof maintenance, what goes into a maintenance check, and how often you should get your roof inspected.

REMOVAL OF DEBRIS: Most homeowners can actually complete this task by themselves.  Debris build-ups on top of your roof, especially if you have valleys, are simple to clear if you have a tool that can access it.  Wind or rain can blow debris onto your roof, and if you do not remove it, the problem could get worse.

CLEANING THE GUTTER: Many people do not realise how vital gutter cleaning is for maintaining a roof.  However, if your gutters are not cleaned and maintained, it could hurt your roof and result in damage.  A hose can be used to gently remove debris from your gutters as you clean them.  Alternately, you can manually clear up the gutter debris by using a ladder.  If you use your ladder, be sure to take safety precautions.  If you do not feel confident handling this yourself, call a professional, as they are able to take care of your gutters.  If your gutter is clogged with leaves and other debris, water can back up on your roof, resulting in significant water damage.

WEATHER CHANGES: We advise having your roof maintained at least once a year, and following any major storms and natural disasters to prevent leaks and any damages to your interior.  Make also sure that your valleys and gutters are completely clean of any leaves and debris that could stop the rain from flowing.

OTHER ELEMENTS ON ROOF: If you are considering solar panels, skylights, solar geyser, it is recommended that you consult a professional to ascertain whether your existing roof can carry the additional weight.  These elements need to be inspected after installation as it is common that the roof covering can be damaged which can lead to subsequent water leaks.  Professionals also need to ensure that there are not gaps.
