Your roofing system is exposed daily to an incredible amount of elements, including UV rays, heavy rains, snow, hail and wind. While it’s designed to survive the elements with little to no damage, it can still benefit from a regular maintenance and inspection program. This would not only prolong the need for a new roof replacement, but it will help you avoid some of the most frustrating problems a failing roof often has.
Routine maintenance is a necessity for almost any roofing system. Let our expert roofers at Lexington Blue explain the basics of keeping your roof in good shape all year round.
Frequency of Roof Inspections
Maintenance needs vary from one type of roofing material to another. For example, asphalt shingles need more frequent visits from roofing contractors (once every three years) than stronger and more durable materials like cement tiles (once every five years). A roof inspection is also necessary after particularly damaging weather conditions like hailstorms and high winds, or when you suspect your roof has been damaged by fallen branches from nearby trees.
You can easily do a quick visual inspection of your roof from the ground but a complete maintenance check-up can only be done by a certified roofing professional. A lot of the most common roofing problems can only be properly diagnosed by a roofer. Moreover, getting up on a roof to take a closer look at the assembly requires certain safety measures that can only be taken by a professional.
