Your roof is the most important part of your home. It literally “puts a roof over your head” and provides shelter for you and your family. With that being said, it’s important to take steps in order to keep your roof in good condition for many years. So how can you prolong the lifespan of your roof? Here are Roof King’s top four tips to ensure you have a quality roof over your head for many years.
Clean your gutters in Charlotte, NCNobody likes cleaning their gutters, but you know what’s even worse? Having to replace your roof. Yes, clogged gutters will trap large amounts of water, and this water can eventually damage your roof. For most homeowners in the Charlotte area, cleaning the gutter once in the fall and spring is enough to allow proper water flow away from the roof.
Cut branches and limbsOne of the biggest threats to your roof is overhanging tree branches and limbs. Make sure all branches are trimmed back so that that don’t pose an immediate threat to your roof. This can prevent catastrophic damage to your entire home as well.
Clean debris off roofA clean roof is far more likely to resist damage over the years than one that is littered in natural debris. Take time to use a leaf blower and remove any small twigs, leaves, and nuts from your roof shingles. As with any time you’re on the roof, always exercise extreme caution when cleaning off debris.
