Importance Of Roof Maintenance

In Seattle, we have wet winters. Warning, the traditional definition of “wet” does not apply here. Unlike other places in the U.S.the have regular rain storms, our weather can be like living in a cloud.  We get a little bit of rain almost every day throughout the winter. We do get some sun, but most days are are gray and the sun creeps out in the afternoons. Temperatures also get as cold as the upper 30s, sometimes down to the 20s. This damp, gray weather makes it hard for our roofing materials to keep our homes and businesses warm and dry. Regular maintenance for your roof is essential.

When was the last time your roof got a tune up?

When appliances, HVAC systems and plumbing systems malfunction and need repairs, it’s rather obvious most of the time. The same can be said for most parts of your home, But few of us notice that our roof is in need of repair.until we have a major problem. By the time most of us notice, extensive and costly damage may have already occurred.

The most important reason for a regular maintenance program is to protect our investments in our home and business. A properly executed maintenance program will not only add years to the life of your roof, but it will prevent minor problems before damage becomes widespread

Your roof is more than just the outer covering your see. Most homes in the Pacific Northwest have asphalt shingles, wood shakes, or concrete tiles. Most of these roofs have common trouble areas, like around skylights, vents and chimneys. Typically, these trouble spots can be attributed to damaged flashing and sealants that are supposed to keep water out. Over time, normal weathering, moss and tree leaves can cause damage to the flashing and the shingles themselves. Shingles can crack or break and allow water into the roof layers underneath and eventually leak into the home of business.

With proper inspections and treatment, these roofing problems can be repaired for a fraction of the cost of a major leak or roof replacement. The more of roofing issues that occur to damage your roof, the more often your roof needs maintenance. Regular inspections and maintenance will address issues like:

  • Leaves or Evergreen Needles collecting on your roof and in your gutters
  • Moss and Algae growing on your roof
  • You live in a high wind area
  • Your home gets snow and ice build up on an annual basis
  • Your roof is more than 5 years old
  • You have a brick or stone chimney that is more than 10 years old
  • You have skylights that are more than 10 years old
