3 Tips to Extend the Life of Your Roofing Materials, Lisbon, Connecticut

When it comes to your roof, the more care and attention you provide it with, the longer it will keep your home safe from the elements. That’s why Nye Roofing & Home Improvements in Lisbon, CT, stresses the importance of regular roofing maintenance. Here, they list three simple steps you can take to ensure your roof lasts for years.

3 Tips for Increasing the Lifespan of Your Roofing 

1. Have a Professional Inspect It Regularly 

All the components of your roof need to be in great shape to ensure it protects your home. As such, hiring an expert to inspect it regularly is a good idea. They will catch any issues that could lead to serious roofing issues. During a professional inspection, experts will pay close attention to your roof’s skylights and flashing, as well as the underside in the attic. They’ll also check for water stains or other indicators there may be more going on than meets the eye. 

2. Cut Away Overhanging Branches 

roofingIf you’ve got trees near your home or branches hanging over your roof, it’s a good idea to trim them before the winter, as the weight from snow and ice can easily cause them to fall and damage your roof. Hire a tree service to remove any problem branches or trees that look like they might not make it through the season well in advance of the first snowfall to prevent serious issues after a bad storm. 

3. Clean the Gutters

Keeping your gutters clean will ensure they do their job properly, as well as prepare your roof for the additional water they’ll be dealing with during the winter months. Scoop out the leaves and other gunk from them as soon as possible so water doesn’t get stuck in the gutters, as this can lead to it pooling on your roofing and causing leaks.

By performing regular roofing maintenance and care, a traditional asphalt roof can last upwards of 20 years without needing replacement.
