2020 is fast approaching! You may already have a list of New Year’s resolutions, but it’s good to make room for some more. While it’s always admirable to become a better version of yourself, this year you should make some resolutions to give your roofing system the attention it deserves.

So, as a leading roofing contractor in the area, we recommend you start the new year by keeping an eye on your roof, spending less on repairs and other maintenance.

1. Schedule an inspection.

Don’t let the sight of a good-looking roof fool you–especially if your roof is 15 years old or older. Your roof could have unseen issues that require attention. By having a reputable roofer perform a thorough inspection, you can identify potential problems before they become worse and costly to repair.

2. Clean your roof.

Keep your roof looking good as new with some periodic cleaning. Remove leaves and other debris to minimize the chances of mold or mildew growth, which can be damaging to your roof. Also, trim back any trees near your home.

3. Replace broken shingles.

Damaged shingles are both an aesthetic and functional problem.  They not only detract from your roof’s appeal but also compromise your roof’s intended function of protecting your home against the elements. Tackle roof repair as soon as you see the problem. You might be thinking of fixing the issue yourself, but roofing work is best left in the hands of the pros.

4. Consider replacement.

Every roof needs to be replaced eventually. Knowing the age of your roof and its expected life span, therefore, is crucial when planning this major home improvement project. To be sure, seek advice from the pros who can provide recommendations on whether your current roof must be replaced or not.
