What do we mean by “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?” Simple. It’s easier and a lot less expensive to stop something from happening in the first place than to repair the damage after it has happened.
But, maintaining a roof properly to ensure it lasts a very long time involves a lot more than just keeping debris off and cleaning gutters. Many vital checks and balances go into keeping your roof functioning at its peak performance and outlasting the manufacturer’s warranty. But doing roof maintenance tasks on your own is a bad idea. Crawling around on top of your house is dangerous to both you and certain roof parts which can loosen or break when subjected to foot traffic and use of the improper maintenance tools.
Over the course of time, shingles can crack, curl, or find their way to become loose or dislodged. Under such conditions, it’s best to hire a professional, like Arnold Roofing, to replace the shingles per the manufacturer’s recommendations.
That’s right. Without proper attic ventilation the life expectancy of your roof will diminish, Arnold Roofing can make sure your soffit vents are keeping cool air flowing in and the hot air flowing out during our scorching South Carolina summer months.
Limbs left to remain too long on your roof can shift in wind gusts and unnecessarily wear down spots on your roof or even puncture it! For that matter, a large limb with a sharp, fractured end can put a hole in your roof upon its initial strike. Don’t tackle limb removal on your own, let Arnold Roofing & Restoration do the work for you.
Gutters laden with wet, rotting leaves will quickly clog downspouts leading the back-ups and overflows which can damage the roof’s surface and get under fascia and soffits leading to wood rot and pest infestation.
Trees are beautiful and provide welcome shade, but their limbs overhanging your home is a problem, so are vines crawling atop your roof and finding their way underneath roof parts. Arnold Roofing can keep nature at bay with regular maintenance of your roof.
There’s a reason we all have insulation in our attics. We all know it keeps temperatures cooler inside in the summer and warmer in the winter, but insulation also plays a role in extending the life of your shingles, which heat up to high degrees under the sun’s relentless UV rays. Regulating shingle temperature is important and the insulation under them is key to that.
Moss upon your roof might not translate to leaks or other serious issues, but if left to grow there indefinitely your roof will lose its ability to effectively shed water. Moss will hold in moisture which can shorten the lifespan of your roof and promote pert infestation. Arnold Roofing & Restoration can keep moss from garnishing your roof with our skilled roof cleaning and maintenance services.
