Ultraviolet radiation, wind, rain, hail, snow, and sleet all affect a roof system's performance and durability.
As we described on our installation page we will get you off to a great start on a long lasting roof, but you also have to do your part.
Roof maintenance is critical to preventing roof problems and keeping the roof in watertight condition. Early identification and repair of roof problems will help provide a long-lasting roof system.
Some of the most basic maintenance items, such as keeping the roof free of debris. Debris can block the flow of water to the roof drains and cause localized ponding, which can prematurely damage a roof system on flat roofs.
Debris may also block the gutters or get caught in valleys causing ice build up and deterioration the shingles or even cause the flashing to pull away.
Snow build up can cause the roof to carry more load than it is capable of handling and cause the roof to collapse.
Ice dams can cause leaks in the roof, leading to expensive repairs. proper venting and flashing can help prevent ice dam leaks.
Shingles should be inspected for signs of deterioration or cracking, finding and replacing a few bad shingles can save your whole roof.
Most of our roofing products need very little maintenance but keeping drainage areas clear will keep your roof sound longer than letting water to cause damage that is not covered by the warranty.
