You don’t really tend to think about your roof very much—until you’ve got major issues. But by taking some time once or twice a year to do some simple DIY maintenance, you can identify potential issues before they negatively impact your home. When you do find yourself needing professional roof repair, call the expert team at Centennial Construction & Remodeling Services LLC. In the meantime, here are three cleaning tips for routine roof care to get you started.
1. Clean Out Gutters
If you have trees near your home, you’re going to get leaves and twigs in your gutters. Besides blocking rain drainage, over time they will rot and cause damage to the roof and siding. Every spring and fall, clean all debris out of the gutters and surrounding areas to ensure proper drainage.
2. Check the Shingles
Once gutters are cleaned out, check the roof for any loose, broken, curling, or cracked shingles. Look for missing nails or any nails that are sticking up. This is your chance to fix those before any shingles fly away on a windy Indiana day. If there is too much damage, it may be time to install a new roof with the help of our roofing experts at Centennial Construction.
3. Know the Signs of Water Damage
Besides being leaky, a water-damaged roof may have visible cracks or soft spots. If you suspect water damage, hire a professional right away to repair your roof. It’s an investment you’ll never regret!
