4 Crucial Reasons Why Roof Maintenance Is Important

It’s one of the largest parts of your house; but you barely even notice, is your roof. The roof protects your family and furniture from heavy rains, strong gusts of wind, the sun’s heat and other weather hazards. This makes it the most vulnerable part of your house and prone to a lot of wear and tear. mom and daughter looking at a houseThe average lifespan of a roof is 15 to 30 years, but with little to poor roof maintenance, it drastically deteriorates in a short span of time. If left unattended, you could be facing damages with large costs and the possibility of damaging your items inside home. 

Is it about time you took proper care of your roof? Here are four crucial reasons why roof maintenance is important:

Taking care of your roof saves you money

A well maintained roof prevents it from getting too much damage by tackling minor problems early on. 

Roof repair companies charge thousands of dollars for emergency calls. In an emergency situation they usually require that you pay a hefty fee before they will even agree to come out.  Once they are on site, the price of your emergency call keeps climbing.  Take into consideration that this emergency call could possibly happen on a holiday or the weekend, which they will charge extra for.

Properly maintained roofs and routine check-ups will save you time, effort, and cash. It is a small cost compared to emergency situations that could result in  more damage to the interior of your home.

Proper roof maintenance gives your roof a longer lifespan

Being exposed to a lot of harmful conditions can take a huge toll on your roof. The small cracks will add up, turning into major damages. This largely determines the gap between getting a repair or a replacement. 

Roof maintenance is the key to major damage prevention while extending the roofs serviceable lifespan. 

So, how often should you get your roof checked by professionals? Several factors come into play: your location’s weather conditions, roof age, how wear and tears are managed and so on.

If you have a new roof, keep it strong and intact by having scheduled inspections every few years.

Your roof maintenance could affect your health

Most people are unaware of roof damages until it’s too late. Your roof could be leaking without you knowing about it until it becomes a major costly issue. 

Water enters through the small cracks, building up moisture around the walls, wood or steel framing of your attic and creating the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow.

Mold and mildew have tiny particles that enter your home. Once inside, they can multiply on old wood or cloth furniture. They then spread through the air and can even enter your system and produce a myriad of health problems. 

With regular roof maintenance, all these issues can be found before they start to arise.

A healthy roof is an eco-friendly roof

When your roof has good insulation and proper ventilation, your home’s heat and cooling system can function well. This will not only save you money from energy costs, but also helps  the environment by being energy efficient. 

Eliminating energy waste by having a well maintained roof helps the environment by reducing unnecessary heat emissions. 

Ensuring your home has good insulation not only brings comfort during the summer heat and cold winters, but also peace of mind for you and your family.

Conclusion

The roof is one of the major components of a home. It protects you and your family from the weather, keeping everyone comfortable. Yet, it is the least thought about but incredibly important — from providing you good health to being a good steward of the environment. 

Planned check-ups can save you hard-earned money in the long run. Don’t wait for the major issues to consume your time and effort.
