Roofing South Philadelphia Roofers

Most people put up a house and then don’t worry about the roof until it’s severely damaged. The roof is often overlooked, but a little TLC from you may extend its life by a factor of ten, therefore we are here to offer some simple roof maintenance suggestions from experts like Roofing South Philadelphia Roofers.

After a certain point, your roof will need to be replaced no matter what. The good news is that this limit can be as high as 20 years for some roofing materials. In other words, your roof’s longevity is directly proportional to how well you take care of it. Find a reliable roofing firm if you decide to replace your home’s roof.

Considering the high cost of replacing a roof, it makes sense to preserve the one that shields you and your possessions from the elements for as long as possible.

Cleaning Gutters

Gutter cleaning should be done often because each season provides its own unique set of leaves, twigs, and other debris. If you own a home, you should keep your gutters clear and clean throughout the year. Water can seep into your basement and damage your ceiling if it is unable to easily flow down and away from your gutters and house.

To avoid the expense and hassle of replacing your roof due to rotted roof decking caused by gutter backup, follow this straightforward roof maintenance tip. Climb a ladder sometimes or hire a gutter cleaning service or Roofing South Philadelphia Roofers to remove debris that has accumulated.

Inspection of Shingles

The typical weather patterns in each season bring their own set of challenges. Extreme heat and humidity increase the risk of solar damage and hurricanes, while snowfall and thawing ice and snow increase the risk of leaks. So, make sure you check your shingles and other roofing materials thoroughly every season. Check the shingles for obvious signs of deterioration or severe wear, and make a list of those that are completely missing. Make sure the flashing and any vent pipes are completely sealed. Make a mental note of any spots with moss or lichen, as this could be an indication of rot under the shingles. Don’t let easily fixable problems fester into much worse ones by putting off attention to them.

Leaks in the Ceiling and Attic

A visual study of the roof’s exterior will tell you a lot about its condition, but you may not be able to notice leaks or infiltrations from the ground.

It’s important to check the ceilings, especially in the attic, as part of your routine home roof maintenance. Check for any damp spots or other indications of water intrusion.

The sooner water damage is addressed, the less costly it will be to repair, so if you notice any, contact Roofing South Philadelphia Roofers immediately.

Moss, Algae and Lichen Treatment

It’s not worth the risk of serious damage and an unpleasant appearance to let moss, lichen, and algae take over your roof. Shaded portions of your roof are especially prone to this during the warmer months. Having Roofing South Philadelphia Roofers clean your roof is the simplest way to get rid of these growths. You can apply zinc and copper-based preventatives after the roof has been cleaned and dried to stop the regrowth of moss, lichen, and algae. These products, when used annually, completely halt the growth of anything on your shingles.

Strong Insulation

Up to a quarter of a home’s heat might be lost through the roof if it is not properly insulated. You may lower your monthly energy bills and maintain a comfortable temperature in your house by insulating the attic, loft, or roof space.

Roof insulation, if installed properly, can endure for more than 40 years, paying for itself many times over in reduced energy costs, lower carbon emissions, and increased comfort.

If you are confused about the maintenance of the roof, it is better to consult Roofing South Philadelphia Roofers.

I had roof damage after a hurricane came through and needed a whole new roof because of the age of the old roof. Joe Taylor was extremely helpful and professional through the whole process - he gave me a fair quote and helped me deal with the insurance company once we signed the contract. He was always available to help with any questions I had.
