Whether you're a do-it-yourself who knows their way around a ladder or you feel more comfortable having a professional handle it for you, a little bit of regular roof maintenance can go a long way toward preventing costly repairs.
Keep It Clear
One of the easiest but most important things you can do to maintain your roof is to make sure that your roof and gutters are clear of leaves, moss, algae, pine needles and other debris. All of these natural materials can trap moisture on your roof and cause rotting shingles, potentially leading to problems such as mold and leaks.
Another vital aspect of roof maintenance isn't on your roof at all; it's the trees around your house. Make sure any heavy branches or trees that may be dead or structurally compromised are removed as soon as possible to ensure that they don't fall on your roof in severe weather. This not only prevents damage to your roof but contributes to the safety of the rest of your property as well.
