Roof Maintenance Myths People Should Stop Believing


Your roofing system is designed to protect your entire property, which pretty much makes it the most important component of your home. That said, it’s crucial to ensure that it remains fully functional over the years. While homeowners are often reminded about the importance of regular upkeep, people should also be aware of maintenance practices they should be avoiding. In this post, we debunk the most common roof maintenance myths.

Roof Maintenance Myths

  • “All issues are covered by the roofing warranty.” Most manufacturers only provide coverage against material defects and problems caused by poor installation. Remember that storm damage repairs and replacement are not included, and neither are issues resulting from poor maintenance. 

  • “Modern roofs don’t need upkeep.” Despite recent innovations and advancements in modern roofing technology, it’s worth noting that there really isn’t a 20-year maintenance-free roof. However, a proactively-maintained roof has the potential to last well beyond its warranty with proper care and regular maintenance.

  • “Maintenance begins only when you’ve identified a problem.” Obviously even the most premium products need to be maintained at a certain level, especially if you live in a harsh climate.

  • “You can repair your roof on your own.” Although it may seem like it will help you save time and money, DIYs are discouraged. It’s best to hire a professional to work on your roofing system for the right execution and for your safety. After all, a reputable, experienced contractor has the knowledge and technical skills to perform the repair smoothly in a timely manner. They also have access to the tools and equipment required to safely carry out the task.

Working with Bone Dry Roofing was best decision I made to deal with a leak in my roof. They took their time to correctly determine where the leak was coming from and the best way to fix it! And, they did! Everyone I worked with from their staff was awesome! I will definitely use them again!!

Initially called this company for a quote because I saw their truck in Denver and the driver used their blinker. Compared to 2 other roofing companies their quote was in the middle and was later adjusted for less materials being used than expected. After signing the contract they were ready to start the next week on a garage roof and home roof repair (weather permitting). The team was respectful of our home & our neighbor’s. Throughout the entire process the communication was great. Highly recommend!
We are so happy with the service we received from Bone Dry Roofing! Nick came out quickly and did an inspection and a quick estimate for us! The repairs were done quickly! Fernando did an amazing job! He was very friendly. We have a very pitched roof and so I was very impressed with his bravery. ( would not catch me up there ever)<br /> <br /> Very happy customer and highly recommend!
