It’s a New Year – so it’s time for a new you, right? Like most of us, you’ve probably made resolutions to work out more, eat better, unplug, and make new memories. But, have you made resolutions for your roof? Wait, what? We’re supposed to make resolutions for our roof, too? Yes, you should. Your home or business is one of the biggest investments that you’ve made, you taking good care of it should be a priority this year and every year. TekRoof offers you three resolutions that you can make (and keep) to keep your roof in shape and your home looking great in 2021.
3 New Year’s Resolutions for your Residential or Commercial Roof
One of the best ways of keeping your roof in good shape is to inspect your roof regularly. You can do this by checking the roof from the ground and looking for damage such as broken or missing tiles or shingles. Keep in mind that sometimes the damage is not visible to the untrained eye and that you should call in a professional roofing company such as TekRoof at least once per year to catch the things you cannot see and nip them in the bud to prevent costly repairs down the road.
Keep It Clean
Cleaning your roof and the components of your home that touch your roof is also important to the long life of your roof. Keeping your roof clean will also help your house look great all year, too. You can do this may keeping trees near your home trimmed back, cleaning out your gutters, and removing any buildup of leaves on your roof if you can safely reach them. Did you know that piles of leaves on your roof can mean the potential for damage?
If you have noticed areas of your roof such as a missing shingle or damaged flashing, get them fixed now. Catching these items in their early stages can help save money in the long run and could put off a roof replacement or costly repairs down the road. Leaving these “minor” issues could mean leaks and access for unwanted pests.
While you’re working on your personal resolutions for 2021, keep your home healthy, too, with these resolutions for inspection, cleaning and maintenance, and repair. We also hope you add one more resolution; to use a professional roofing company when making repairs or to replace your roof if you need to this year.
