Roof Maintenance: Extending the Life of Your Roof

Feb 10, 2024

The roof of your home is a significant investment. Not only is it a big monetary investment, but it’s an important investment for the curb appeal, protection, and overall structure of your home. Once you have a new roof installed on your home—especially if it’s the right one—it can work wonders for your property’s exterior aesthetic and overall performance. But it’s paramount for you as a homeowner to understand that having a roof installed on your home isn’t the end of getting the most out of your investment.  

Staying on top of roof maintenance is one of the best things you can do for the system itself, as you can extend the life of your roof. Not only does that ensure top-notch beauty and performance for a long time to come, but it also makes it so that you don’t need to invest in another replacement any time soon. Here are some ways you can make sure you’re keeping up with roof maintenance, extending the life of your roof as a result. 

Ensure That Your Roof & Gutters Are Clean 

Roof maintenance is important, but it’s also crucial to understand that gutter maintenance is a part of that. If your gutters are clogged by debris and can’t properly perform their functions of moving water out and away from your home, it can allow moisture to seep into your home’s roof and impact the health of the system. Unclogging your gutters periodically or investing in gutter protection is a great way to combat the risk of your roof suffering from moisture damage.  

Be Mindful of Plant Growth On Your Roof 

If you find moss, algae, or other plant life growing on your roof, you’ll want to treat that as soon as possible. This is another moisture trap, and it can lead to major roofing damage if you leave it alone. Reaching out to a roofing contractor or roof washer is typically the best way to treat this plant growth before it gets out of hand, especially because a professional can recommend and apply preventative products to help. 

Maintain the Trees Surrounding Your Home 

One of the often-forgot-about ways to maintain your roof actually doesn’t have anything to do with your roof—at least not directly. That, of course, is maintaining the landscaping around your home. Make sure you’re getting your trees trimmed and maintained if they’re near your roof, as the last thing you want is for a limb to extend into your gutters and clog them up or fall onto your roof and create irreparable damage. 

Don’t Put Off Necessary Roof Repairs 

One of the easiest ways to help extend the life of your roof is to get repairs done when they’re needed. The more you put off repair work, the worse condition your roof will ultimately be in when you finally do reach out to a contractor for a fix. If you’re keeping up with your repairs, it’ll keep your roof in tip-top shape and ensure that it’s at its strongest for a long time to come.  

Schedule Regular Roof Inspections  

The best way to stay on top of your roof maintenance needs is to keep up with regularly scheduled roof inspections from a trusted roofing contractor. Doing so can make sure you have a trained eye to track the life of your roof, identify any potential problems, and repair any of those problems when the time comes.

Gatekeeper manages several hundred rental homes, and I own several dozen houses myself. Ward Metcalfe at Roofing Done Wright is our "go-to guy" for residential roofing. Quality is significantly better than the others we have tried. Customer service working with insurance companies is just great. He has saved us thousands. Ward Metcalfe is simply a good guy to boot! He really knows roofing.

This company did a great job! I would definitely hire them again. Houston helped us pick out everything for our new roof and gutters. He was great. He knows a lot about the roofing business and was very helpful. Skyler was the onsite supervisor when our new roof was installed. He was also great and very knowledgeable. We are very happy with our new roof and gutters.
