Make Your Roof Last by Avoiding These 3 Maintenance Mistakes


While roofing systems are built to provide reliable weather protection, they’ll still require regular and proper upkeep. The secret to making them last as long as possible is to avoid a few common maintenance mistakes. Bone Dry Roofing, the area’s trusted roof replacement and maintenance company, discusses some of them here:

Maintenance Mistakes

1. Overlooking roof debris. Leaves, twigs and other loose debris can build up on the roof surface over time, especially if there are tall trees near your house. When left unattended, the debris can encourage algae growth on the shingles, not only leaving unsightly stains but also weakening the material itself. The debris can also clog the roof valleys, leading to standing water and leaks.

What to Do. Cut back overhanging tree branches on your roof. You could also schedule regular roof cleaning or inspections as part of your routine roof maintenance.

2. Delaying roof repairs. Any roof damage, no matter how small, should be dealt with immediately. Delaying this only makes the problem worse, accelerating roof deterioration and leading to more extensive and expensive repair work.

What to Do. If you want to extend the service life of your system, call a premier roofing contractor like Bone Dry Roofing for prompt repair services. We have the skills, training and expertise to ensure the work is done properly the first time. Let us help your roof provide better protection for longer.

3. Leaving the gutters clogged. Your gutters play a vital role in protecting your property from water damage. When the gutters become clogged, rainwater can seep through the fascia board and into the underside of your roof, not only creating leaks but leaving the roof deck and trusses vulnerable to moisture damage.

What to Do. You need to prioritize gutter cleaning and maintenance, ideally with the help of an experienced professional like Bone Dry Roofing. If you want to take it a step further, we also offer gutter guard installation services to keep your gutters smooth and clog-free with no effort on your part.
