Keeping your roof in tip top condition now can prevent costly roof repair problems from happening in the future. But when repairs are inevitable, you’ll need to use these tips and techniques to ensure your roof repairs last for years to come.

Basic Maintenance

It’s a good idea to keep a monthly roofing maintenance schedule plan in place to prevent minor problems from turning into huge roofing disasters. Roof leaks regularly occur due to neglect and poor maintenance. If you keep an eye on your roofing problems and make sure you keep up with the following tasks regularly, you can easily prevent many of the calamities that befall an asphalt shingle roof and that make an early roof replacement necessary. Look for the following roofing troubles today and deal with them now to prevent future roofing problems later.

Preventing Roof Leaks before They Start

Once you’ve stopped the roof leak, it’s important that you keep more roof leaks from taking place. Keep an eye out for potential problems like the ones listed above and be sure to keep leaf debris and branches off of your asphalt shingle roof and out of gutters. Never use harsh abrasives, snow shovels or pressure washing on your shingles as this can easily cause more roof leaks than it prevents. It’s also a good idea to keep trees trimmed back from the structure at least six feet. When swaying branches blown by the wind rub against shingles; it’s a roof leak waiting to take place.

Roof Leak Symptoms

Check your roof regularly for any of these roofing troubles; especially after strong rain, wind or snow storms. Be sure a licensed, insured and experienced roof leak trouble shooter takes care of any problems before they get too difficult to manage.
