All roof types are continuously exposed to the elements the moment installation is completed, so it only makes sense to keep an eye on your roof’s condition through regular maintenance. Achten’s Quality Roofing shares the benefits of keeping a regular roofing maintenance routine with a professional roofer.
Discover and Address Potential Roofing Problems
Most roofing problems don’t just happen overnight. In fact, a lot of them result from minor issues that get worse over time when exposed to normal wear and tear. Roofing professionals like us are trained to recognize issues such as minor damage, installation errors and trapped moisture. Addressing such issues before they get worse can help extend your roof’s life span and improve its performance.
Improve Roofing Reliability
A well-maintained roof is a reliable one. Whether you’re a homeowner or a commercial property owner, a reliable roof can help protect your family, employees and property. It also helps protect the home or building itself from the damage caused by moisture intrusion.
Savings Over Time
Regular roofing maintenance costs are more manageable when compared to that of roof repair conducted on neglected roofs. In some cases, neglect leads to unscheduled roof replacement.
Also, heat can leak through a damaged roof. When this happens, your HVAC system compensates for the temperature difference, which can result in a substantial increase in your heating and cooling costs. A well-maintained roof complements the exterior walls in preventing such leaks from happening.
Avoid Voiding Your Roofing Warranty
Your roofing warranty paperwork likely includes a condition that the roof should receive maintenance conducted by a roofing professional or the warranty coverage will be diminished or voided altogether. Just like vehicles and heating systems, roofs are subject to daily wear and tear. No manufacturer will want to provide coverage for a neglected roof, so it’s only reasonable to include maintenance as part of the warranty.
