Do you know how you can extend the life of your roof in Reno? Let’s look at simple tips on how to extend the life of your roof.
According to an article at hinkleroofing.com, “Roof Maintenance Tips”
“Here are a few more things you can do to prolong your roof’s lifespan:
- Prevent Ice Dam Buildup – Ice dams can damage your roof and cause roof leaks. Prevent this from happening by removing some or all of the snow on your roof after heavy snowfall. You can do this with a roof rake as long as you use a telescoping pole and work from the ground. If you can’t, we recommend hiring the services of a roofing professional like us to keep your roof in good condition. You don’t want to be on the ladder while it is snowing.
- Trim Overhanging Tree Branches- As a roof repair specialist, we highly recommend keeping tree branches away from your roof. Abrasion from tree limbs and leaves can damage your shingles and, in the worst-case scenario, tree branches can fall on your roof and crack your shingles. You need to keep branches at least 10 feet away from your roof. Trimming tree branches is a job that you need to leave to a professional, so hire someone you trust.
- Clean and Clear Your Gutters – Clogged gutters can cause a lot of problems for your home. They can overflow, causing water to seep underneath your shingles and damage your roof’s structure. They can also stain your siding and saturate the ground surrounding your foundation. Avoid this by scheduling regular gutter cleaning and maintenance.” To read the entire article click here.
