Do not miss inspections: scheduling annual or semi-annual inspections are important to identify any problems with your roofing. By planning ahead you can also budget for potential fixes each year and will not have to scramble at the last minute for finances. With these inspections, you can also inspect the inside of the building to ensure there is no hidden damage.

  • Don’t slack on maintenance: Small problems can become bigger problems very quickly and then you face expensive repair bills. With regular maintenance, you can fix smaller issues earlier and save on roof replacement. Key problems to look for are damaged flashings, trapped moisture, standing water, and defective seams.
  • Don’t ignore storms: After any severe weather, be it rain or wind, you need to inspect your roof for damage. Wind can remove or tear away roofing pieces or throw heavy objects against it. Debris and water can build up and clog drains or cause pooling and standing water. Looking for these problems immediately after the storm means you can address them sooner rather than later.
  • Don’t hire the wrong contractor: Poor quality contractors and substandard materials will lead to a defective roofing system. This means more frequent and expensive repairs for you. Be sure to research a contractor first and hire only the best when it comes to experience and reputation and make sure they are also fully licensed and insured too.
