How well did your roof fare this 2014? Now that the year is close to ending, it’s time to start making plans for your Danvers roofing for the upcoming year. Here are some things that need to be on your checklist for 2015:
- Have your roof inspected. Sure, you checked on your roof a few times, and you were able to find a missing shingle here and a protruding nail there. While basic checks like these are vital to maintaining your roof’s overall condition, a thorough inspection should be done by a professional at least once a year. Expert eyes are likely to catch less obvious or more complicated issues you may have missed on your quick trips to the roof.
- Clean your gutters. It’s best to clear out litter from your gutters before the cold starts to hit. But this doesn’t mean you should allow snow and other kinds of debris accumulate throughout winter. Be especially wary of icicles as they are signs that there are ice buildups (or ice dams) along your gutters. When left unchecked, these buildups could cause leaks and other serious damage not just to the gutters but to the rest of your roof as well.
- Initiate repair work. Did you find loose shingles, cracked flashing, rotting boards, or a sagging ceiling during your inspection? This is the time to fix these problems. Again, hiring a professional will come in handy here. Experts can assess the extent of damage on your roof and help you decide whether repair or replacement would be a better solution.
- Schedule maintenance. Since you’re already doing repairs, try to squeeze in some maintenance work. Do you have wood shingles that need to be repainted? Or surfaces that need to be washed to remove moss and debris? A little TLC goes a long way: well-maintained roofs last longer.
