The roof is one of the most important components of your home. It protects you from the elements and keeps your home comfortable and secure. But whether you’re dealing with your home’s roof or a commercial roofing system, it takes some work to make sure it’s working properly.
Here are some tips to ensure the success of your roofing project and the longevity of the roofing system:
Work With the Right Contractor
Whether your building needs a roof repair or a full replacement, going DIY is not the answer. If you want roofing success, make sure to contact a professional roofing contractor with a stellar reputation. A roofing contractor can detect any potential problems during an inspection and recommend the right course of action, whether that’s repairing the damage or replacing your roof.
Keep Your Warranty
Remember to keep your warranty certificate in a safe place. It’s advisable to keep it in a notebook or file folder dedicated to your roof. If your warranty requires registration, make sure to register it as soon as possible. This is your protection in case of failure due to manufacturing defects or workmanship errors. It can save you from expensive repairs you would otherwise have to settle out of pocket.
Maintain Your Roof
Sign up for a roof maintenance service with a professional. Regular inspections can keep expensive problems at bay. Most roofing material manufacturers and contractors also require regular maintenance to keep your warranty active. It’s also a requirement when you get home insurance. Maintenance can lengthen the life of your roof as it involves fixing problems even before they develop, adding blown-in insulation when needed, repairing minor leaks, replacing blown-off shingles and damaged flashing, and many other things that can keep your roof working like new for a long time.
