1) Perform a regular inspection
Every homeowner should perform a regular visual inspection of their roof. The best way to get a good view of your roof is to safely use a ladder. Here are some common problems that you should be looking for:
- Damaged, missing, or curling shingles
- Fungi or algae growth
- Cracking mortar
- Standing puddles
2) Perform regular maintenance
Regularly removing debris from your roof and cleaning your gutters can help keep your roof in good condition. Sweep away any leaves or sticks that have settled on your roof, especially after a storm, and make sure that your gutters are clear for draining.
3) Get a quality roof installed the first time around
If you are currently in the process of building or renovating a home, then you can ensure the durability and longevity of the roof by choosing to go with metal roofing materials. Metal roofs come with a number of important benefits that can help homeowners save a lot of money on repair and replacement costs in the long term.
Things to remember: A metal roof can last for over 50 years compared to the 15-20 years you can get from other common roofing materials. On top of their longevity, metal roofs do a better job of protecting your home from harsh winds, rain, snow, and hail. They are also fire-resistant, energy-efficient, and add a less stress to the structure of your home.
Serving Ontario homes since 1986, Metal Roof Outlet can help you avoid expensive roof repairs by installing a metal roof on your new construction or renovation project.
