Your roof is usually a no-worry, no-fuss part of your home. A quality roof that is properly installed will last for decades with little need for repair. This means that a roof can fall under the “out of sight, out of mind” category of home improvement. When your roof is in good shape, you may not be thinking about the perils that can befall residential roofing, but don’t worry! We will take some time to go over easy maintenance that can help keep your residential roofing in tip-top shape.
One of the easiest and most low-key of roofing repairs is replacing shingles. In addition to other elements of the roof, the shingles not only provide an attractive look for a home, they also create the first (and, arguably, one of the most important) protections for your roof. This means, when shingles fall off your roof or become detached in some way, you should take action speedily. So, this is our first residential roofing tip: watch for missing shingles and replace shingles promptly!
These types of maintenance tips are important for ensuring a healthy roof for years to come. However, we know it can be hard to keep track of what your roof needs. After all, you are probably not going up on top of your roof for residential roof inspections! If you feel your roof may be in need of repair, contact a roofing contractor for assistance.
