When a shingle roof is properly maintained it can last for 30 years or more, protecting the home, the family, and their belongings. Roof replacement can be costly, but with regular upkeep, a homeowner can get a long, useful life from an installation done by Roofers Titusville, FL.
the Roof Regularly
a roofer should evaluate the home’s roof at least twice per year.
In the spring, they’ll look for damage caused by snowmelt and ice
dams. During the inspection, the roofer will clean downspouts and
gutters, checking for gaps and breaks in the seams.
flashing is vulnerable to leakage simply because it covers a roof
opening. The roofer will
check flashing around exhaust pipes, chimneys, and vents for bends
and punctures, replacing sealant and flashing as necessary.
tree that grows too close to the home can present a rooftop hazard.
There’s the danger of falling branches, but these limbs can also
cause damage if they rest on or overhang shingles. Constant
scratching can wear away the protective coating on the shingles,
making them weaker over time. A roofer can remove these branches and
replace worn-out shingles.
for Signs of Animal Intrusion
raccoons, squirrels and other animals will all invade a home’s roof
if they have the opportunity. Animal infestation can make existing
damage worse, and they can cause new damage. Roofers
can fix the animal-related damage, and they can prevent the critters
from getting back in.
roof’s underside is the most likely place to find leaks before they
become a significant issue. A roofer will look in unfinished attic
areas for staining and streaks, and they’ll look around chimneys
and vents for signs of trickling water.
a Professional Inspection
important to have a home’s roof professionally assessed by JT
Roofing & Maintenance Inc. at
least twice per year, to prevent small issues from growing. These

issue because they rarely see the rooftop. However, a roof
is one of the home’s most important parts, because it protects the
home from the elements. Therefore, it’s important to give it the
attention it needs.
