To increase the lifespan of your roof, preventive maintenance, consistent inspections, and timely resolution of any issues is needed.
Plan routine examinations at least twice a year and every after strong typhoons. These harsh weather changes drastically damages the roof that leads to leaks. Detect and promptly resolve any identified issues to prevent their escalation. Keep a detailed record of all maintenance activities and repairs. This documentation can be valuable for future inspections and maintenance planning.
Maintain the roof by ensuring it remains clear of debris, leaves, and branches, as these can trap moisture and contribute to degradation over time. Periodically clean gutters and drainage systems for optimal performance. Make sure to trim overhang three branches to prevent damage from falling limbs and to reduce the accumulation of debris.
Have the gutters and spouts regularly checked to make sure that the drainage is in perfect condition. This will prevent the accumulation of standing water. Persistent standing water can accelerate premature wear and contribute to leaks. Contact us here at JP Franklin Roofing, we offer comprehensive checks, repairs, and replacement of gutters and spouts.
Depending on the type of roofing material, contemplate applying a new coating to the roof at regular intervals. This process can augment its protective characteristics and prolong its overall lifespan. For a better peace of mind, consider entering into a maintenance contract with a professional roofing contractor. Regular, scheduled maintenance can catch problems early and extend the lifespan of the roof. Contact us here at JP Franklin Roofing to get started.
