Chantilly, Virginia (webnewswire) June 21, 2019 – The Arlington Roofing Contractors at Beyond Exteriors recently released a list of roof maintenance tips for homeowners. Regular roof maintenance is an important task that can keep your home and family safe.

Your roof is one of the most critical elements of your home. Performing a regular roof analysis to find potential issues can help prevent a number of unpleasant effects. Failing to properly repair your roof’s damage can lead to leakage, which in turn causes mold and related health concerns, damage to the walls and interior of your home, and even cracks in your foundation. If left unattended, these problems could cost you even more money and cause permanent damage to your home. It is therefore essential to regularly check on the status of your roof and work quickly to identify and resolve any problems you might find.

Routine roof maintenance does not take up a significant amount of time if undertaken on a consistent schedule. Clean leaves and debris from gutters each week, which can help prevent overflows. Trimming nearby trees can help you manage the amount of debris in your gutters. Check for shingle damage, which can worsen and cause leaks, and look for signs of other wear and tear, such as holes, loose shingles, and soft spots that may cave in. It is also important to monitor the insulation in your attic for signs of water damage. Examine the flashing on your roof on a regular basis as well. Flashing acts as a sealant and helps prevent leaks. Finally, clean algae and mold buildup to help minimize the chances of breathing problems and other health concerns.
