Out of sight is out of mind. All too often, that turns into big roof repair problems for homeowners and commercial property investors. Maintaining the roof that protects your home or business from wind, rain, snow, and all other sorts of damaging weather is a very important function of your property, so don’t neglect it.
Roofing materials are sturdy, but they’re taking all the abuse of the elements. Moreover, if you’ve got a tree over your roof, the sap from those shade-givers is also eating away at the shingles. The smartest thing to do is to keep it in good condition. You don’t want to find out the hard way that you’ve neglected it too long, when the water starts dripping (or pouring) through the roof onto your valuables.
Many roofing companies will perform a free inspection, (or do it for a very minimal Trip Charge if you’re in a rural location.) Though that sounds tempting, you should still know a few things about your contractor. For starters, are they licensed, insured and bonded? A capable roofer should be able to patch leaks and weave in missing shingles so neatly that it’s nearly impossible to tell there was ever a repair performed.
Quality roof maintenance and repair can save you a LOT of money. Be sure that out of sight isn’t always out of mind. You’ll be glad you did!
