Making A Schedule for Roof Maintenance

Importance Of Schedule Roofing Maintenance

Roof maintenance is essential for preserving your roof in good condition and for helping it stay strong whatever weather comes along. Here is how to schedule maintenance tasks:

  • Professional inspection, cleaning and repair twice a year – the winter and the summer are the two harshest seasons for roofs, therefore the two professional maintenance sessions should be scheduled for spring and for fall, to address any damage caused by harder periods and to prepare the roof for the next round. The maintenance sessions should include inspection, cleaning and repair of any fault detected, on the roof as well as on the adjacent parts, such as the gutters;
  • Inspections after storms – even the strongest roof can be affected by a really strong storm, so you need to take a look at the roof after each extreme event. Have the Topeka roofing contractors start the inspection in the attic, to see whether there is any sign of water damage, such as dampness on the attic floor, then check the roof surface, the flashing around the chimneys and the skylights, the vents, the gutters and the downspouts as well. Look for damage and remove any debris that you find to avoid the accumulation of moisture and clogging.
