Owning a home here in Orlando mean responsibility, this includes your roof. It can be overwhelming to keep your roof properly maintained and in good condition. Here are 4 easy steps to ensure your roof last for decades.
Just like everything else in your home, your roof needs regular maintenance. Such as, cleaning out debris from downspouts, clearing out the gutters at least twice a year, removing tree branches hanging over the roof and any debris from the roof. Keep an eye out for any dark spots, loose, or missing shingles, which may indicate a leak.
Having your roof professionally inspected on a regular basis will find any damage or small repairs that need to be addressed before they become expensive repairs. The small cost of an inspection is worth keeping the value of your roof.
While it can be very tempting to save money and go with a friend or family member who offered to re-roof your home on the cheap. Unless that person is licensed and insured, it's best to not take the chance. You may save a bit of money, or you may end up spending a lot more money and time because the people doing the work are uneducated and inexperienced or get injured while working on your home. Also, check for any manufacturer designation, they ensure a contractor meets strict requirements. For instance, only 3% of roofing contractors are certified as GAF Master Elite.
