Preventative Roof Maintenance

3 Tips for Preventative Roof Maintenance

At PRQ Exteriors, we see all shapes and sizes of roof damage on a daily basis. One of the most common questions that we receive from clients is if the minor damage they have is actually worth repairing or if they can just delay the repairs until the damage worsens.

We are here to tell you that delaying necessary repairs to your building’s roof is a dangerous decision. Delaying repairs inevitably causes damage to worsen, leading to more lengthy and costly repairs in the long run.

Think of your roof like the windshield on your car. If a pebble hits your windshield and causes a small crack, are you going to just ignore the crack until it worsens? We all know that a small ding on your windshield quickly expands until your entire windshield is cracked across. A repair that was once as simple as filling the hole now requires an entirely new windshield, a much more expensive fix.

Your roof is exactly the same. Little dings and dents are easily fixed, but if you let it stay in disrepair for too long, you will likely need to replace the entire roof. Keep reading below for our top 3 tips for preventative roof maintenance.

1. Inspect your roof after every storm

We all know that Colorado is prone to severe hail and wind during the summer months. Hail is one of the leading causes of roof damage and it is important to inspect your roof after every storm. If you are unsure of how to do so, call a professional roofing contractor to schedule a free home inspection 

2. Keep your gutters clear

Clogged gutters are another side affect from severe storms. Often times strong winds will blow debris into your gutter and onto your roof and cause them to block the flow of rain. This can cause water to be trapped on your roof, leading to severe water damage. Check your gutters once a month and take a few minutes to unclog them when necessary. A few minutes a month could save you thousands of dollars in repairs.

3. Don’t forget about your metalwork and stonework

Shingles aren’t the only part of your roof that can be damaged in storms. When you are inspecting your roof, don’t forget to look for excessive rust and erosion on any metal and be sure to regularly inspect your chimney. Undetected chimney damage can quickly lead to detrimental consequences for the rest of the roof and your home.
