To help maintain a healthy roof, here are a few tips to keeping your roof in a healthy condition.
Get annual inspections
When you get an inspection through Intermountain Roofing Company we examine your roof for anything that may damage your roof. During the examination we check your roof for curling or lifted shingles, missing granules, soft spots, or any uncovered areas that leave your roof susceptible to mold and moisture. Routine inspections and knowing what signs to look for can keep your roof in pristine condition and save you money.
Seasonal Self Inspections – With the changing of the seasons also comes the changing of the climate. The added precipitation in the winter and extreme heat of the summer can wreak havoc on your roof. Performing inspections before and after the seasons will make you aware of any new damage or possible issues that can occur later on.
Keep your gutters clean and clear
Removing debris from your gutters can help keep your roof in a healthy condition. If debris gets caught in your gutters it can create a block and allow water to form in your gutters. If not cleared, the moisture will cause deterioration and damage your roof. Safely, clearing out your gutters once every 2-3 months can help keep it protected.
Keep your roof clear. If you notice any moss, mold, or debris gently scrub away the debris with a soft scrub brush. Be careful not to use a power washer when clearing away granules. The pressure of the power washer can wear down the granules meant to protect your shingles.
Get Roof Repairs done as Needed. If you notice any missing shingles, small soft spots, or dimples in your shingles or granules call Intermountain Roofing Company. Getting small repairs done as needed will help save you from expensive repairs or possible roof replacements.
