Make Your Roof Replacement Last

Roof replacement
Wherever you live, make sure that you keep your new roof looking good as long as you can with preventative maintenance.

You have a new roof, and whether it’s asphalt, wood, or another material such as ceramic tile, you want your roof to stay as well-maintained as possible for as long as possible. After all, a new roof is expensive, and this is an investment. How can you make your roof replacement last? With diligent maintenance and by ensuring that the structures around your roof support your roof maintenance regime, you can help your home stay beautiful and leak-free for many years.

Keep Your Roof Clean

Should you clean your roof? Of course! Cleaning your roof not only prevents moss and debris from causing damage to your roof, it also allows you to see problem areas. If there is something wrong with your roof, you want to be able to see it and address it.

Ensure That Water Flows Off the Roof

In the first rainstorms after you get your new roof, keep a particular eye out for your gutter drainage to ensure that water moves easily off the roof. Keep your gutters clear of leaves and other debris so that the water can move off your roof easily. Consider installing a gutter guard so that you will no longer need to remember to remove leaves from your gutters.

Watch Joints and Flashings

Wherever two pieces connect, there’s the potential for trouble. Keep a special eye on flashing and joints around your roof. Look for cracks and deteriorating mortar and sealants. Repairing these issues can help prevent future problems.

Give Your Roof a Regular Check Up

Just like your own health, it’s better to do preventative maintenance on your roof than it is to repair leaks later on. If you live in a snowy area, make sure that you take a look at your roof after the snow is gone to make sure that you have no missing roofing or noticeable leaks. Take special notice of areas where there are seams. Over time, watch for depressions in the roof where water can pool.

Inspect Your Roof After Storms

During a storm, your roof is what protects you from the elements. Make sure that it can continue to do so. Fallen branches and other debris can damage your roof even when it is new, and if a leak occurs in an attic or crawl space, you may not notice for some time. After a significant storm, take a look at your roof to make sure that all materials are intact and that nothing has punctured your roof.

Keep a Record of Maintenance and Repairs

Note any problems that you have with your roof, and make sure that you address them. Keep the warranties for repairs in one location so that if there is another problem, you can call the company. This makes it easier and less expensive to get your roof repaired in the future.

Roof maintenance can greatly increase the lifespan of your roof, saving you money in the long term. When you’re replacing your roof, make sure that you give your home a full roof makeover. Install a gutter guard system that helps your gutters run clean and clear. Reduce your home maintenance headaches and enjoy your new roof. Contact Harry Helmet today.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
