If you have gotten a roof installed recently on your home, you are probably thinking you are set for the next 10-12 years. No cracks, no leaks, no worries! Although most roofs are tough with some lasting longer than two decades, it’s important to do regular maintenance to assure you get to most out of your purchase. Here are few things to look out for that could cause your roof to deteriorate faster than you think.
Your roof is there to take on the elements of nature so that you don’t have to. Just like you would reward someone for saving your live, your roof deserves the same respect as well. Your roof is taken for granted when it comes to weather because you expect it to hold up. No one ever expects their roof to start leaking or develop a whole but over time these kinds of problems can occur. If you live in areas where there is snow, hail, and sleet, like the northeast, weather can take a serious toll on your roof over time, so it is important to keep an eye on your roof every couple of months to make sure its still in good shape.
An assortment of different pests can cause you roof trouble. They can fit through holes the size of a dime and end up using your roof as their new home. Things likes birds, squirrels, and rats will camp out on your roof and try to burrow through into your attic so its critical that you consistently do maintenance to make sure you don’t end up with some new neighbors.
As simple as it may sound, neglecting your roof could lead to its inevitable downfall. Many people like to think after they purchase a new roof that they don’t need to worry about it but going two, three, even four years without having it inspected could cost you. In the end, there may end up being nothing wrong with it but having it inspected will only give you the satisfaction that you are at least putting in the effort to elongate the life of your roof.
