ARE YOU PROTECTING YOUR MOST VALUABLE INVESTMENT IN 2023?


We are one month into the new year, and we wanted to make sure you are keeping up with your New Year’s resolutions.  Remember, the one for your roof?

Most people don’t even think about their roof unless they are showing signs of damage, let alone keep their resolutions to ensure the roof is protecting the home and keeping it in good shape.  As a reminder, here are the helpful resolutions for your roof that you should be keeping and striving to maintain any time of the year.

KEEP IT CLEAN

Keeping your roof clean is essential to maintaining its condition.  When we say cleaning your roof, we don’t mean dusting.  We mean cleaning any debris that has built up on the roof, so the water drains appropriately and prevents damage. 

CLEAN THE GUTTERS

The more you clear out the gutters, the better falling water will flow.  Commit to helping your roof drain water effectively and improve its longevity over time.

SCHEDULE REGULAR EVALUATIONS

Your roof may seem fine to the naked eye, but there can be damage you don’t even notice.  Scheduling regular roof assessments should be part of your continued resolutions.  Getting professional eyes on your roof so repairs can be completed before they cause damage will be worth it.

MIND THE EDGING AND HEDGING

Cut back all the tall shrubbery as they are one of the most significant sources of roof damage.  Fewer branches lead to a happier, healthier roof!

STAY ON TOP OF REPAIRS

I think we are all aware of how easy it is to notice something that needs repair and to just put it off if it isn’t causing a significant issue.  We also know that little repairs can grow into big, expensive repairs.  Don’t wait until the last minute to fix lingering roofing issues.  Call a roofing professional like Williams Roofing to prevent little things from getting worse.

REPLACE MISSING OR BROKEN SHINGLES

Missing or broken shingles can severely impact the appearance of your home.  These missing or broken shingles can and will affect more than just your home’s curb appeal.  The shingles are what help weatherproof your home.  If they start breaking down, this impacts the protection of your home from weather and pests.  Having those shingles replaced is a simple and easy way to keep your New Year’s resolution for your roof.

PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR ROOF IN 2023

In this article we mentioned how there are a lot of potential damages that the average person won’t be able to notice on their roof.  This doesn’t mean you can’t tell when there are problems or potential for big problems.  For example, if you notice a buildup of debris on your roof, clearing it away will help maintain your roof’s functionality.  Noticing how water drains will tell you if there are issues with your gutters.  You don’t need to get onto your roof, simply keep an eye on it as you come and go.  This can help you catch many issues.
