The roof over your head needs love and attention, just like you do, so it can keep you and your home healthy. You must take good care of your roof and its gutter, as they work hand in hand to ensure that your roof is working properly. Maintenance is needed to be conducted at regular intervals and we suggest that our clients have this service at least once a year to ensure that their roof is always in good condition to protect them from all the different types of weather. Allow us to conduct all of the roof maintenance
A good and thorough roof inspection is very important and is only necessary every few years. It is a necessary preventative precaution against any incidents, especially if you live in an area that faces extreme weather conditions. A roofing inspection should be done by a professional contractor and not by yourself. Your roof is the most important part of your home, so allow one of our roofing contractors to provide this inspection for you to ensure that you and your home are safe. Our contractors have been in the business for many years and know exactly what to look out for when conducting these inspections on your roof.
Clearing your roof and gutters from debris should be done every year. Roof deterioration can be a result of debris and dirt on your roof or in your gutters. This can lead to a damaged roof and even the possibility of leaks. Roof damage can also occur from having dirty gutters. When debris and leaves are blocking your gutters, your roof and gutters can be damaged beyond repair. Our contractors can come in to ensure that your roof and gutters are clear from all dirt and debris to ensure that your roof does not face any damage from blocked gutters.
The amount of times that maintenance needs to be carried out varies on the type of material your roof is made out of. For an asphalt room, debris should be cleared at least three times a year, and repair work or replacement of loose or damaged shingles should be done immediately. If tree branches are scraping the roof, they should be trimmed back as this can cause additional wear and tear to the asphalt shingles. If shingles are starting to curl back, they need to be replaced immediately.
Clay Tile Roof
When it comes to the maintenance of clay tiles, an inspection using a ladder and binoculars can be done. This is because walking around on the roof can be dangerous and potentially cause more cracks. To clean these tiles, a power washer with a mild cleaning detergent and warm water can be used to clean the roof. The power washer should be a low pressure one to avoid cracking any of the tiles. For safety reasons, this should be done by a professional from Columbus GA Roofing as our clients' safety is our number one priority.
