The biggest challenge is the roof’s location! Climbing up and conducting a careful inspection can be difficult and should be left to professional Maryland roofers and Virginia roofers like Roof Masters.
Here are some tips for keeping your roof in good shape. Always use extreme caution when climbing up to or walking on your roof! Better yet, call the professional roofing contractors Maryland and Virginia from Roof Masters to do it for you.
- Perform a thorough inspection every Spring and Fall. Look for wind and rain damage in the Spring, such as loose shingles, punctures, rotting soffits or leaky gutters. In the Fall, look for wind damage, loose shingles and flashing that may need to be resealed.
- Keep the roof clean. Fallen leaves, branches and pine needles are very acidic and can damage shingles or tiles. If debris gathers on your roof, try to sweep it off within a week or so.
- Keep your gutters clean. Gutters that are clogged with debris can fill with water that can seep up under your roof and cause damage. Consider installing a gutter protection system to keep debris out.
- Make sure your roof is properly ventilated. A full-length ridge vent helps to balance out the roof temperature and prevent ice dams and avoid damage to shingles and the roof deck.
