Tips For A Long Lasting Roof

Hello, in this article today i want to discuss the importance of your homes roof health. Many roofs only last 30 years or less. So in the case that you’ve bought an older home it may be time to look for a roof replacement.

Here’s some tips to keep that roof of yours in the best shape to get the most lifetime:

Prevent Ice Building up on Roof

If your home is in a location that gets a lot of snow or freezes you’ll want to take heed. Proper ventilation and ice shields along with having a drip edge will help help in the long run.

Fix Roof Boots

The roof fence comes up thats where you will find roof boots. In the case that they dry up it could cause major damage to your home. Luckily it’s not a difficult fix. Just purchase a new roof boot at any local store that sells building supplies. You many need to adjust a few shingles to get it to fit, but it’s not too difficult to perform.

Check Valleys

The valley is where the section where two roof sides come together. It is also commonly called the ridge, which is again where two roofs meet at an intersection. Valleys are common areas for leaks to begin because that’s where the water from the roof directs and will cause water to collect and eventually cause water damage.
