When you perform regular inspections and maintenance, you are actively keeping your roof in tip-top shape, ensuring that small problems are detected and addressed in a timely manner. Today, we take a closer look at roof maintenance myths and share the truth behind them.
Maintenance only starts once you have identified a problem. Maintenance is a must regardless of whether or not your roof is experiencing issues. A general roof maintenance service includes inspections, debris removal, gutter cleaning and roof repairs. It detects small issues before they spiral out of control and turn into severe and costly problems, such as extensive leaks and rotted decking. In many cases, premature roof failure is caused by neglecting preventive maintenance.
DIY is easy and saves costs. While DIY may seem like a good idea, calling on a roofing expert is without a doubt the better option. A certified roofer has the knowledge and experience to carry out roof maintenance and roof installation services safely and efficiently. If you choose to perform repairs on your own, for instance, and something unfortunate happens to you on the job, it is all on you, whereas a professional has safety measures and insurance in place for these types of accidents.
A roof warranty covers everything. Some roof warranties are comprehensive, but still do not cover 100% of the expenses involved in the roofing process. One common example is the warranty covering the materials, but not the underlayment. This is why it is crucial that you carefully read all the details of your warranty before proceeding with the maintenance service.
