Top Roof Maintenance Tips
Evaluate At Your Roof
Take a look at your roof. Do you notice any areas missing materials? Are your shingles curling? Any warped, damaged, or missing roofing materials are a strong indicator that you should have a roofer come out. If your roofing material is weakened or torn off, it could lead to leaks and further damage.
Clean Your Gutters
Cleaning your gutters can tell you a lot about your roofing system. When you pull out leaves, take notice of any wear on your gutters themselves. Rust, bubbling, and damage means that your gutters may be failing. Inspect what has collected in your gutter system. If you notice any tiles, shingles, or granules, your roof is wearing down.
Note Any Landscaping Problems
What could landscaping possibly have to do with your roof? Well, an overhanging tree branch could fall upon your roof at the next storm. Look for any landscaping problems that could adversely affect your roof.
These simple steps will keep your roof in good shape for a long time and let you know when you need maintenance. For a thorough maintenance inspection and service, call Ariat Roofing today at 702.208.4153.
