The roof that is over your head is often used to symbolize the concept of home. The roof is crucial to the home, and definitely more than in a metaphorical sense! As the owner of a home, taking care of a roof is very important. The advice below will help keep your home dry and your roof in good condition.
Check out your roof yearly. Your roof is most likely to incur damage during winter and spring. With this in mind, you should monitor the state of your roof frequently during these times.
If you’re taking care of a leak, you need to make sure you fix it properly the first time around. This often means searching for other leaks after the initial spot has been fixed. If you take the time to check your whole roof, you will not have to deal with additional, often worse, problems down the road.
Take care that you secure yourself properly when on the roof. If you aren’t secure, you are in danger of losing your balance and falling, which injures and kills thousands each year.
If you have gotten in touch with a roofer but he cannot come out for several days, you may need a temporary fix. Buy some heavy plastic, and secure it with nails. This is a temporary repair that allows you to hire a contractor to fix the problem permanently.
How old your roof is will often determine whether or not it is time to replace it. Roofs are generally warrantied for 20 years. After 20 years or so, it is in your best interest to replace your old, worn roof.
Make sure your materials are in good condition. Installation issues like crooked nails or cracked shingles are a major source of leaks. Be sure the shingles you use are durable and do not have any cracks. Also, be sure the nails can penetrated your shingles and keep them in place.
Speak with your roofing company and find out what warranties they provide for their work. Some companies will provide better coverage than their competitors. Make sure you get any warranty in writing (and the estimate too). You’ll need that if the time arises where there is an issue. This ensures there are no changes made to your terms later.
It is in your best interests to take good care of your roof. Lots of home maintenance jobs can be delayed, but roof issues are not among them. Use these tips, and your roof will stay in good condition.
