Regular upkeep is important to make sure your roof lasts as long as possible and continues to protect your home. At Weldon Roofing, we stress the importance of regular roofing maintenance to keep small problems from turning into major repairs.

How Often Should I Have Roofing Maintenance?

Here is the maintenance schedule that we recommend keeping your roof in great shape:

  • Annual Inspections. Your roof should be checked at least once a year. This annual check-up can find problems like loose shingles, broken flashing, or clogged gutters and drains before they cause problems.
  • After Bad Weather. If heavy rain, hail, fierce winds, or a massive storm affects your area, you should plan an inspection afterward. If you don’t fix these problems immediately, they could lead to damage that makes your roof less stable overall.
  • Clean Your Gutters. You should have this done every six months, usually in the spring and fall.
  • Additional Maintenance. Besides regular checks, roofing maintenance that stops bigger problems includes removing moss and algae, fixing the flashing around vents and chimneys, and replacing shingles that are worn or damaged.

As we perform these maintenance activities, we also keep an eye out for problems like leaks, missing shingles, or granules from shingles building up in the gutters. These signs show that repairs need to be done as soon as possible.

We suggest including these tips in your regular homecare routine to keep your roof in great shape. Roofing maintenance makes your roof last longer, saving you money. Always remember that preventative maintenance costs less than fixing something or getting a new roof. We offer professional roofing services, including maintenance, so give us a call to keep your roof in optimal condition.
