Your roof protects the rest of your home from damage, helps hold in heat or keep your home cool, adds value to your home and gives you and your family a healthier, happier place to live. Even if your roof isn't new, if you follow these simple maintenance tips now, you may be able to keep your roof in tip top condition much longer than even the average 15 years covered by most warranties.

Should Your Hire A Professional One of the most important things you should know when replacing a roof is whether or not this is really a job that you can do yourself or whether hiring a professional is a better idea. There are many roofing contractors that will give you a free estimate on replacing your roof and it may be a good idea to get a couple of estimates before deciding to replace a roof yourself.

Overtime mold can work it's way into your roofing tile and cause damage to the underlying roof itself. If you have a new roof that is free from mold and mildew, placing zinc strips at the peak of your roof will result in zinc washing off the strips each time it rains and preventing mold and mildew from growing. If you have an older roof that has begun to mold, then clean the mold from the roof using a mold remover specially made for roofs and then attaching zinc strips.

Because of the amount of water passing through that area of a roof, it is important to consider how the area will be protected when replacing an asphalt shingle roof.

The perfect roofing solution for one building may be the worst option for another just down the street. That's because no two buildings are precisely alike, even if they closely resemble each other. So how do you choose a new roof, given all the choices in the marketplace? You can start by asking a series of questions, before you choose the roof, the roofing contractor or the manufacturer.

Because of the four sloping sides of the roof it is generally harder to build than gable roofs (it requires more comprehensive trusses), but the four slopes also make this roof style sturdier and more resistant to strong winds. It is also more expensive; yet do not create extra space in the attic. For those who will be constructing their sheds in higher areas, hip roofs are excellent choices.

Sondra Mayer Roof, 2018-07-21 14:47:34. Cost One of the main concerns people have is the cost. While there is no doubt that a metal costs more initially than standard roofing materials, you need to look at the big picture. Most roofs need at least some repair every few years. These repairs can be both time consuming and expensive. However, metal will seldom if ever need to be repaired so that initial cost may well be the only money that you will ever put into your roof.

Ridge vents come in several styles to match the home, shingle design, and homeowner's preference as to how much they stand out or blend in with the rest of the new roof.

Deterioration of the shingles, or even worse the sheathing of a roof, can be caused by a number of factors; one of which is mentioned previously. Mold and algae can eat away at the organic base of shingles causing them to decay. If this problem goes on undetected and reaches the sheathing panels then it may be too late as the sheathing is the connection between the shingles and the rafters of the roof. If this connection is weak then it makes your roof even more vulnerable to loss during potentially high winds during storms can eventually compromise the integrity of your roof. If your roof appears to be sagging in areas it could be a sign of a much larger problem called roof rot which could lead to the possible collapse of your roof. By having a roofing professional inspect your roof you could be avoiding additional repair costs to not only your roof but to the interior of your home.
