Why the Maintenance on Your Roof Matters
Let’s face it, roof maintenance isn’t one of those subjects that makes homeowner’s eyes light up. It can do quite the contrary. But what if we told you roof maintenance can help save you money and can help your current roof extend past its current life expectancy? It’s true. Roof maintenance is the key to less roofing issues thus it saves you money in the longterm.
Here are a couple of the ways roof maintenance makes a difference:
Increase the Lifespan of Your Roof
On average, the roofs on El Paso homes last about 20 years. This life expenctancy will, of course, depend on how often you have your roof serviced. Maintenance can add years to your roof and no maintenance can shave off years. If you just purchased a new home, you may not need any work done on your roof but it’s still a good idea to have it inspected at least once a year after the first year to ensure everything is in the proper place. As an owner of an older home with an older roof, it’s recommended that you have your roof inspected seasonally—once in the spring and once before the start of winter. This will help keep your roof intact for a longer duration.
Maintenance Can Actually Save You Money
Think of it like going to the dentist. The longer you wait for a checkup, the more likely you are to have issues that aren’t apparent until that visit. Similar to a dentist, roofers have the knowledge and tools to thoroughly inspect your roof to find problem areas that aren’t visible from the sidewalk or even when you’re standing on the roof.
Your roof may require a couple of repairs that when stopped early-on can be addressed quickly. However, if you wait, those problems can easily spread and become costlier repairs. For example, a roof leak. If your roof begins to leak into the home, it can damage your ceiling, walls, furniture, floors, and anything else the dirty water touches. Replacing those items will cost much more than if you had spotted that leak months prior. A little maintenance can go a long way!
