Why is a Quality Roof Important?
Let’s be honest, installing a new roof can be time-consuming and expensive. This leads some people to wait until the problems with having a damaged roof become substantial, while others may fix known roof damage quickly. It is beneficial to understand why having a quality roof is important when investing your time and money. Below are some key reasons why a quality roof is important.
Keep out Moisture
A roof is vital to the structural integrity of your home due to its job of keeping out the elements. If your roof is damaged and leaking water or unable to keep moisture out of your home then mold can appear as well as create other water-related complications. The rafters of the home, the ceilings, and floors may become structurally unsound due to moisture and water damage. Often times when there are small, unknown leaks, the damage may be severe and require extensive work to correct when finally discovered.
If your roof is not up to par or damaged in some way you can expect to pay more in energy cost. Cool air will escape when cooling your home in the summer and the hot air when heating your home in the winter. A damaged or low-quality roof will not keep your home as well insulted as it is intended too. This ends up costing you more money monthly with higher utility cost.
Higher Property Value
Many people tend to pay attention to the age and wear of the roof when buying homes. Even if you are not selling your home adding or having a quality roof is an investment into the value of your home. Having a quality roof increases the curb appeal of your home. This, in turn, increases the value of your home.
Having a quality roof ensures you are protecting your housing investment from the elements and damage they may cause. It helps to increase your property’s value and keeps your home looking beautiful.
How to Keep Your Roof in Great Shape
To get the most out of your roof, maintenance is key. You put a lot of energy into picking the right contractor and spent time and money on getting that new roof so taking care of it is important to get the most out of your investment. Maintenance gives your roof a longer lifespan and helps you catch any damage before it becomes a major problem. The following are some great tips to help keep your roof looking great and working efficiently.
Remove Debris from Roof and Gutters
It is important to remove any debris that collects on your roof as well as in your gutters. Debris on your roof can cause algae to begin to grow. If your gutters are full of debris water can accumulate causing water damage on your roof that eventually leaks into your home. Making sure water is flowing properly and not pooling in areas will help decrease the possibility of water damage, and mold or algae growth. This also includes the removal of snow or ice as this can cause damage to your roof as well.
Remove Moss or Mold
If you do have mold or moss growth, removing this will help your roof last longer and look better. You can use a moss or mold remover spray on the area and then brush the mold/moss off of your shingles using a soft brush. Using a power washer is not advised when using on shingles as this could wash away the granules on the shingles causing damage.
Inspect Shingles for Damage or Cracks
If you find cracked or damaged shingles or other areas on the roof it is best to replace these quickly to help prevent any leaks and future water damage. If there is sealant that is damaged or needs to be replaced, replacing this will also extend the life of your roof. Don’t forget to check the valleys of your roof as this is where water often runs to and where many leaks begin.
Inspect Metal Areas and Chimneys
Make sure areas around any metal or chimneys are correctly sealed to prevent water leaking. This may mean replacing roof boots, any caulking, or mortar that may be cracked or damaged. If there is rust on any metal it is best to remove the rust to prevent any further damage.
Look for Signs of Dry Rot
If you do not have proper ventilation on your roof dry rot can occur. This is not due to water but rather the lack of airflow. This can cause sagging in your roof that will damage not only your shingles but possibly the plywood underneath as well. Having proper ventilation will help maintain your roof and give some protection from dry rot.
