Maintaining Your Roof
After you have installed your roof it is very important to regularly maintain it in the state of Tennessee. Tennessee’s rigid climate can be tough on a roof and its components. Our technicians can help you make sure that your roof will perform properly and stand the test of time.
Here are four roof Maintenance tips that are necessary and can often be neglected.
- It is important to frequently check on and maintain your penetrations. Roof penetrations may need to be re-sealed every 5 to 10 years. Penetrations include pipe flashings, through roof vents, chimneys and more.
- Keeping the roof clean is vital to its longevity. This is another really important maintenance item that is often avoided. Mold and algae can shorten the lifespan of your roof. Leaves and debris collecting on the roof can build up and cause issues such as mold and mildew, it can cause staining and can even cause leaks. Having the roof inspected and cleaned can be a great way to increase the life of the roof and save from costly unnecessary repairs.
- Coatings may be required on certain types of roofing. They can help to extend the life of metal roofs and several other different types of low slope applications. They also have UV reflective properties which can help to keep the structure more cool in the summer months. Coatings are a great way to extend the life of your roofing.
- Gutter Maintenance is vital to a properly functioning drainage system. Gutters and gutter guards may be much more important then some people realize. Gutters should be inspected regularly to ensure that they are free from leaves, branches, animal nests and other forms of debris which may cause water to build up causing damage to your property. A gutter inspection is quick and easy.
