No matter the age of your roof, it’s never fun to discover that you have a roof leak. If you do determine that you have some sort of roofing damage that’s causing a leak, contact your Orlando roofing contractor for a repair immediately. If your roof is in good condition and you’re wondering if you can prevent future damage, the good news is that some roof damage can be prevented.
Keep Your Roof Clean
When debris lands on your roof either from trees above your home or wind, make sure to get it off in a timely manner. Seed pods and branches on your roof can hasten decay of your shingles causing them to break down. Remove any large debris from your roof as soon as you notice it to prevent this deterioration. If you choose to use a blower to remove leaves that are lying on your roof, make sure that they don’t clog your gutters. Don’t allow palm branches or other tree branches to rub against the roof of your home as that will damage your shingles over time.
Keep Your Gutters Clean
Clogged gutters are one of the leading causes of roof leaks. When your gutters don’t allow the rain water to flow away from your home, you’re risking not only roof damage, but damage to your foundation. When your shingle edges sit in clogged gutter water, they deteriorate. During heavy rains, water sitting in gutters can even back up and flow under your shingles causing water to run down the walls of your home causing more than just roof damage.
Keep Your Roof Maintained
Annual roof maintenance does prevent many roofing issues. By having your roof inspected regularly your roofer can spot any imminent issues and repair them before they become problems that allow roof leaks. One of the leading causes of roof leaks is deteriorating flashing. Your roofer will inspect all aspects of your roof including the flashing and replace it if necessary. You can call a roofer you trust for inspections or join the Overhead Care Club, which provides inspections, gutter cleaning, and other benefits.
