How to Maintain Your Roof Shingles

Your roof is a sizable investment, which means that you want to ensure it will last for many years to come.

Since it’s constantly exposed to the elements, you’ll want to ensure it hasn’t suffered any damage between seasons. In fact, many common roof problems — and even expensive repairs — can be avoided with regular roof maintenance and inspections!

Roof Cleaning And Tidying

If you want to make sure that your roof is protected, routine cleaning is essential. Debris, such as leaves and branches, can accumulate on your roof rather easily, and it’s important to make sure they’re removed on a regular basis.

It’s also important to make sure you take steps to be proactive, removing vegetation that is causing this debris whenever possible. This can be a dangerous task, meaning it’s best to hire a qualified contractor.

Roof Inspection

Cleaning and tidying your roof will make the next step easier, which is roof inspection. It’s important to make sure your roof is checked for serious problems — we recommend an inspection twice a year, in the spring and fall. With a comprehensive roof inspection, many minor issues can be fixed with quick repairs before they turn into major problems.


If you have shingles that are broken or missing, it’s important to make sure they’re repaired or replaced as soon as possible. You also need to be sure any repair of your flashing, gutters, or downspouts is performed promptly. These features of your roof all work to keep water flowing away from the home to prevent damage.
