With a new year on the horizon, it’s natural to start making resolutions about how we can be better in 2024. However, why not make some New Year’s resolutions for your home, and your roof specifically? You may not think much about your roof throughout the year unless it gives you problems. But with proactive maintenance, you can ensure a long-lasting roofing system in Marshfield as well as lower repair bills. Check out these six New Year’s resolutions you can make for the health of your roof.
1. Keep Your Roof Clean
Regularly clean leaves, branches and other debris that may be building up on your roof. This debris can alter how well water drains from the roof, and can lead to costly repairs. Standing water in particular can result in leaks.
2. Schedule Regular Inspections
While your roof may look fine from the ground, there could be things going on that you simply can’t see with the naked eye from that far away. Even if you could somehow get up onto your roof, you likely wouldn’t be able to spot subtle issues like a trained professional would. Schedule regular roof inspections by a professional who can spot damage and fix it before it becomes an expensive issue.
3. Clean Out Your Gutters
Remove the leaves, branches, and other debris that are building up in your gutters, as that can impede water flow. Without proper drainage, your roof and exteriors will suffer. Ask your roofer to clean your gutters if you don’t have the supplies or if you have multiple stories. While they’re up there, they can let you know if your gutters need any repairs.
4. Keep Up With Repairs
It’s easy to ignore small issues and keep putting them off. But procrastination will only make the problem bigger and more costly, with more of a disruption to your family’s life. Get small problems taken care of sooner rather than later for your peace of mind.
5. Replace Missing or Broken Shingles
Missing and broken shingles detract from the appearance of your home, but they also compromise the weatherproof nature of your home and encourage the infiltration of pests. If you notice broken or damaged shingles, repair or replace them right away.
6. Be Aware of Your Roof
In general, resolve to be more aware of your roof and the problems that can affect it. Regular maintenance goes a long way toward ensuring the functionality, life span and beauty of your home.
