Roof Maintenance in Palm Harbor
Roofs are built to last a long time. In most cases, a roof can last 20 to 30 years from when it was first installed. However, in order to maintain that lifespan, regular roof maintenance and inspections must be performed by a licensed roofing professional. Doing so can help you catch a roofing issue before it becomes a huge problem. In an ideal situation, most roofs should be maintained and inspected twice a year.
At Castle Roofing and Construction, we perform and check the following:
Inspect for rust
Storm damage inspections
Recommendations for tree trimming
Replace damaged shingles
Inspecting For Rust On Your Roof
Depending on the style of roof you have, it may be susceptible to rust. Obviously, metal roofs are the most prone to rusting. However, nails and metal screws in traditional style roofs can also rust and cause issues. Rust on metal roofs can be professionally cleaned. Rusty screws may need to be replaced before they become larger issues.
Damaged shingles can quickly cause roof leaks inside your home. It is critical to get shingles replaced as soon as there are signs of wear and tear that need to be addressed. We will inspect the condition of your shingles and work with you to address any immediate concerns we have regarding shingle replacement.
Roof flashing is the material that seals off bends and corners of your roof to prevent water from getting inside your home. The most common place flashing is found is around the chimney. However, anywhere there are corners, flashing can be found. We inspect your flashing for damage from storms and rusting and will repair any issues we find immediately.
There is no question that a well maintained roof can add years to the life of your roof and add attractiveness to your home. When roof maintenance, especially roof cleaning, is performed properly, a property can experience a surge in curb appeal. Roof cleaning is one of the most requested tasks to perform before putting a home on the market.
Regular cleaning of leaves and debris can extend the life of an aging roof for any homeowner. If your roof has never been cleaned a complete washing of fungus and algae buildup may be all that is needed. Neglecting this duty can lead to rotting, which can obviously deteriorate the condition of your roof quickly.
Many roofing materials warranties require cleaning and maintenance to be performed in order to honor those guarantees on materials. In the rare case that you need to file a claim, manufacturers may request documentation to demonstrate the homeowner’s commitment to keeping their roof installation professionally cleaned on a regular basis. Documentation of roof cleaning can easily be generated when the homeowner schedules a regular roof maintenance plan with Castle Roofing and Construction. Whatever your roof cleaning needs, Castle Roofing and Construction can help put a regular cleaning plan in place to professionally clean and care for your home’s roof.
