As roofers, we recommend caring for your property’s roof as much as possible to ensure it stays in great condition. After all, it’s important to make it last for as long as it can. Here are just some ways you can help keep on top of maintenance.
It’s always best to keep an eye on the state of your roof. Try and keep an eye on its condition to spot any problems as soon as possible. You’ll hopefully be able to spot any damage, missing tiles, or discolouration from outside. If possible, you can even look in your loft space to see any issues from the inside.
Get Repairs From Roofers
Even if you’ve noticed small problems with your property, it’s advisable to get these sorted as soon as possible. If you’ve got a damaged chimney or tiles that have fallen slightly out of place, ensure you get these seen to. What’s more, if problems are left over time, they may turn into even bigger, more expensive issues. Roofers will be able to make all the repairs required to help expand the structure’s lifespan.
Clean Your Gutters
The guttering system helps to protect your roofline. When it is blocked or not working properly, water won’t get directed away from your property. Ensure that all debris is removed from the gutters and use a hose to wash out the downpipes. Water damage can cause many problems within a house, so ensure the guttering is in working order. If your fascias, soffits, or gutters require repairs, our roofers can also help with this.
It’s not great if moss grows on a property for a long time. Over time, it could disturb tiles. If left to grow densely, it can cause moisture issues too. It’s always best to remove any signs of moss as soon as it’s spotted to avoid any issues in the future.
Keep Plants Under Control
If your property has climbing plants or nearby trees, it’s important to maintain these well. Trimming back trees and ensuring that plants are able to root themselves into the structure is recommended by roofers. These could damage the top of your property, and roots can cause even further issues in the structure.
