Tips on Extending the Lifespan of Your Roof

By October 6, 2015July 1st, 2016No Comments

Your roof is out there 24/7, exposed to different elements and weather conditions. As your roof ages, it naturally becomes more susceptible to deterioration. Eventually, you will need to repair or replace your roof, or leaks will start to affect your home.

roofing maintenance

A roof typically lasts between 20 to 50 years, depending on the materials used and the maintenance it has had. If you want your roof to reach, and even surpass, its expected lifespan, the premier roofing company in Rehoboth Beach, DE, offers some maintenance tips:

Keep Your Gutters Clean and Clog-Free

The gutters channel rainwater away from your home and your roof. This prevents unnecessary water damage. If your gutters are clogged with debris, water can overflow and pool on your roof. This will cause significant water damage on your roof and other parts of your house.

Keep Leaves off Your Roof

If you have trees on your property, chances are leaves and dried branches pile up on your gutters and roof. This can trap moisture in your gutter and cause them to gradually decompose. Make sure you consult Spicer Bros. Construction, as we offer Ply Gem, a top gutter protection system. Apart from protecting your gutters and the entire home, our gutter covers will also eliminate the need for regular gutter cleaning.

Trim Overhanging Branches

Branches overhanging on your roof can do a lot of damage in many ways. First, large dried branches could snap off from the tree and create holes on your roof. Second, overhanging branches provide squirrels and other rodents easy access to your roof, and we all know what these little gnawing critters can do to our roofs. With Ply Gem, your roof will not be prone to rodents and bird nesting. That is why Spicer Bros. Construction recommends installing this reliable system on your home.

Schedule Regular Inspection
