What Can I Do To Get The Maximum Life Out Of My Roof?

Here are some things you can do to get the most life out of your roof: 

  • Keep debris from your roof 
  • Keep the drains clear 
  • Call the roofing contractor if you need to have your roof serviced
  • Have your roofing contractor inspect the roof twice a year 
  • Make sure any damage is fixed immediately, even if the roof is not leaking

Why Maintain The Roof? 

People usually don’t pay attention to the roof unless there is a huge problem with it. A well-installed and designed roof can last for more than 25 years if it is properly maintained. Roofs with little or no maintenance face a greater risk of roof failure and they last only half of the anticipated service span. 

What Do I Look For In A Quality Roofing Contractor? 

Here is what to look out for when you are hiring a roofing contractor: 

 

  • Make sure that the roofer has many years of service under the same name 
  • Ask for a list of corporate referrals

 

  • Visit the office to see the equipment and personnel 
  • Ask for a list of manufacturers 
  • Check the qualifications for installation 

Can I Request An Insurance Certificate? 

Yes, you can request an insurance certificate. Make sure that you are listed as the insured and that you receive the insurance certificate directly from the company. This way, you will be bonded and fully insured to protect yourself from any liability during the repair or installation process. 

What Are Building Code Requirements? 

Make sure that the roofing contractor has a building permit from the local building department. Ensure that the contract states that all work will be performed according to local and state fire codes. 

How Often Should A Roof Be Inspected? 

Old and new roofs should be checked and inspected bi-annually for any problems or deficiencies. This is best done once before the winter and once in spring. This will help to make sure that the drains are free from debris and eliminate deficiencies in the roof. Then you can carry out preventive maintenance services.
