Roofing Experts Share 3 Tips to Extend the Lifespan of Your Roof, Onalaska, Wisconsin

Whether it’s protecting you from the rain and snow or the sun’s rays, the roof endures a lot of harsh weather every season. This is why it needs the proper care and maintenance to remain in great shape. The roofing experts at Coulee Region Roofing & Siding in Onalaska, WI, know that a full replacement isn’t cheap. Below, they share some tips to extend the life of your home’s roof. 

3 Roofing Maintenance Tips

1. Keep It Clean

One of the best ways to prevent wear and tear is by cleaning the roof periodically. This helps remove mold and mildew buildup that eats away at the shingles. If you want to clean the roof on your own, there are plenty of solutions to purchase from the local hardware store. However, if you’re wary of climbing onto the roof yourself, many reliable roofing contractors provide cleaning services to increase its lifespan. 

2. Reduce Roofing Hazards

roofingA common cause of damage is when an overhanging branch from a nearby tree falls onto your roof. Minimize these hazards by trimming back overhanging branches and check that the trees and foliage surrounding the home don’t pose a threat of falling. Overhanging branches also give pests, such as squirrels and insects, easy access to the home. Contact a reliable roofer to trim the branches so you don’t hurt yourself. 

3. Clean Gutters & Remove Leaves

Your gutters are designed to move water off the roof and away from the home’s foundation. However, when they’re clogged, they cause damage to the eaves and flashing. When the gutters don’t function properly, it leads to leaks in the roof deck. Always scoop out the leaves and gunk each season. 

A well-built roof lasts more than 20 years with the proper care and maintenance, so follow the steps above to prevent costly damage and minimize the need for repairs.
