4 Top Reasons To Have Roof Maintenance

July 15, 2022

High-quality roofing materials can protect your home against snow, rain, and hailstorms. These three extreme weather situations can strip the granules off your asphalt shingle roofs and cause them to have curves and blisters. A roof inspection is appropriate after these situations pass because it has suffered so much damage. 

Most homeowners forget about roof maintenance because they use a well-manufactured roofing material. Reputable manufacturers ensure their roofs can withstand any extreme weather conditions and insulation. However, even the best-manufactured roofs will age and wear over time. 

Roof maintenance reveals the possible roof weaknesses with the potential to grow enormously over time if you leave them unattended. Here are four crucial reasons to always have regular roof maintenance.

Extend Roof Lifespan

Asphalt shingles, clay tiles, and other roofing materials suffer from small damage that can grow into expensive issues if you leave them unattended. In some cases the severity of evolved small roof damage can mean replacing an entire roof in the next few years. You can make your well-made and long-lifespan roof have a better lifespan by having regular maintenance.

Early Damage Identification

Some manufacturers of high-quality asphalt shingle roofs and other roofing materials will require homeowners to have a retained maintenance service using a certified roofing specialist to enforce their warranties. If the homeowner suffers from severe roof damage through no fault on their own and did not use a scheduled maintenance surface, the manufacturer might not consider their warranty requirest valid.

With early damage identification, certified roofers can repair the issues before they become expensive problems in the future. It keeps homeowners safe for the next storms and saves their money from emergency roof repair expenses.

Improved Property Value

Buyers understandably consider purchasing properties with zero roofing issues, usually homes with newly-replaced roofs. 

A new roof replacement means the roofer has fixed any structural issue the homeowner had before they installed new roofing materials and sold their property. Sellers who guarantee buyers won't have any issues with warranty transference and any major problems within the next five years are likely to sell their home faster than other listings.

Upgraded Energy Efficiency

Excellent attic insulation and ventilation releases hot air trapped inside the attic, preventing humidity levels from increasing. Ensuring low humidity and keeping the attic dry keeps trusses, sheathing, and rafters safe from water damage. Extensive moisture exposure makes these structural components susceptible to wood rot. A roof inspection ensures your roof has a well-functioning insulation system that saves energy.

Insulation ensures your indoor air remains comfortable because its dense and thick materials reduce the passage of outside temperatures. In addition, doing this for your roof ensures improved energy efficiency. You can expect great energy savings by having proper roof energy efficiency.
