MAINTAINING A ROOF

Roof maintenance is an important part of overall home maintenance costs. Much like a heating system that needs to be regularly cleaned and "tuned" for peak efficiency, roofing systems must also be maintained for maximum protection from the elements. Saving money on maintenance is nearly always short sighted. It typically costs more in the long run-as the cost of replacing major components and the inherent disruptions rapidly mount and become greater in scope.

There is no such thing as a "maintenance-free" roof. However, there are roofs that require less maintenance than others. Even so, preventative maintenance greatly reduces the likelihood of leaks, damage and premature roof failures. On the ground, walk around your home with binoculars and inspect your roof for cracked, curled or missing shingles, as well as any excessive loss of the protective mineral granules. In your attic, take a flashlight and look at the underside of the roof deck and rafters for any stains or wet spots indicating water leaks.

  • Re-caulk terminations and counter flashings, chimney flashing.
  • Remove debris from gutters.
  • Trim back any overhanging tree branches.
  • Look for loose or damaged shingles (renail or replace shingle).
  • Check the open valley metal for rust.
  • Check the mortar on chimneys.

Restoration involves the major repair of the roofing system, including the repair of all penetrations and re-surfacing of the roof to restore it to serviceable condition. The opportunity to perform restoration work normally exists two or three years prior to the end of a roof's life cycle and before significant damage can occur. As many as 10 years can be added to the useful life of the roof through restoration and typically the cost of restoration is one-half the cost of re-roofing.

Millions of dollars a year are spent on replacing roofs that may have years of life left in them. Owners today need to recognize the importance of their investment and protect the home and its contents from damage, both in terms of the roofs cost and its replacement value.
