The Importance of Routine Roofing Maintenance

At PRQ Exteriors, we know that maintaining your roof isn’t always your first priority. In fact, it is often a part of the home that our client’s take for granted or forget about until a major leak or issue arises. While it is understandable that many people have an out of site out of mind attitude towards their roofs, it is also dangerous. 

Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home’s exterior. It is the first line of defense against UV rays, inclement weather, and falling debris. You want to make sure that your roof is always in top condition and if there is ever a problem with your roof, you want to repair it right away. 

If you have been putting off a roofing inspection or necessary maintenance, we want to encourage you to stop delaying it. Today, the PRQ Exteriors team is going to share the importance of routine roofing maintenance. Keep reading below to learn more. 

 

Regular Maintenance Increases the Lifespan of Your Roof 

The lifespan of a well-maintained standard asphalt roof is typically between 20 and25 years. However, in order to protect your roof’s longevity you must take care of it. Just like your car requires regular oil changes and tune-ups to run properly, so does your roof. In order to maximize your roof’s life expectancy, we recommend having your roof professionally inspected annually in order to detect and repair damage in a timely manner. 

 

Maintenance Allows for Early Detection 

Regular maintenance and inspections allow for the early detection of roofing damage, helping to prevent major issues from arising. The earlier you detect a problem, the easier the repair usually is. Just like you visit the dentist twice a year to stay ahead of any potential cavities and maintain your smile, you should perform regular roofing maintenance in order to stay ahead of potential damage and best maintain your home.  

 

Routine Maintenance Saves You Money in the Long Run

A new roof is likely one of the biggest purchases that you will make besides your home itself. Protect your investment by regularly having your roof professionally inspected and performing routine maintenance. It is both easier and more cost effective to repair small issues as they arise rather than repairing major damage or replacing your entire roof. Save both time money in the long run by keeping up with routine maintenance and repairing damage as necessary. 

 

Regular Maintenance Helps You Rest Easy 

We all know the feeling of anxiety that comes along with putting off an annoying, but small item on your to-do list. The longer it sits on your to-do list the more you worry about it and the more stress it creates. Don’t let your roof become that nuisance on your to-do list. By performing regular inspections and keeping up with maintenance you will bring yourself peace of mind knowing that your roof is in good condition.
