Roof maintenance is an important, but often overlooked by homeowners. Properly maintaining your roof, just like your car, extends the service life and minimizes problems.
Preventative roof maintenance is essential for your roofing system to live out its complete life cycle. Failure to provide necessary maintenance results in deterioration of your roofing system and costly early replacement.
What benefit is there in spending money every year to maintain the roof? Studies have shown that a roof that is not regularly maintained will only last about half of its expected service life.
Don’t assume that the warranty on your roof or home will protect you. Most roofing material manufacturers state in their warranty that roof maintenance must be done to keep the warranty active. If you’re unable to show that your roof has been maintained, you may run into problems if you try to make a claim on your warranty.
The National Roofing Contractors Association suggest an annual inspection and roof maintenance program to detect any problems before they turn into costly replacements or repairs.
The average roof is replaced 7-10 years sooner than the expected service life, simply because people fail to maintain their roofs!
