How To Take Care Of Your Roof So It Never Lets You Down

Your roof deserves your attention. It helps keep you safe by protecting you and your family from the elements. But it can’t do it alone, it needs your help and guidance.

Periodically check for any alarming signs.
If you continuously check on your roof, you won’t be caught off guard with timely and costly repairs. Check your attic for water drips or stains. Head outside and look around your property, keeping an eye out for shingle pieces on the ground, or damaged or broken shingles on your roof.

Schedule an inspection.
We live in an area with many climate extremes, which can take a toll on your roof. Do your research beforehand and choose a licensed, trusted roofing professional — added plus if they offer free inspections as well.

Keep your gutters in good repair.
You can also safeguard your home and roofing system by making sure your gutters aren’t clogged or in poor condition. Gutters main function is to lead water away from your home, but sometimes water can freeze (ice dams) or clog along your roof edge, which can lead to water damage to your roofing and siding.

Trim your trees.
If you have any tall trees hanging over your roof, don’t fix it yourself, call a professional instead. There’s less of a risk of personal and property damage when an expert does this job! They will clear out any pine needles, leaves, branches, or other debris that can ruin your shingles or gutter system.

If it's time to replace your roof, turn to Superior Windowland. We offer many different material options including asphalt shingles, wooden shingles or shakes, tile, slate, metal, and copper.
