Four Must-See Residential Roofing Maintenance Tips From JC Home Roofs and Sidings, Queens, New York

Your roof will inevitably take on wear and tear over the course of its life; exposure to rain, ice, winds and debris means that sooner or later, your roof will need some extra care. Here is some advice on how to keep your roof in tip-top shape from JC Home Roofs and Sidings, the roofing contractors families trust in Queens, NY. No matter what you do to mitigate damage to your roof, a time will come when the roof will need work— but these tips can help you make sure that day is a long way off.

How to properly maintain the roof above your head:

  • Visual Inspection: In the fall, look for leaves and debris on the roof and gutters, and in the spring, keep your eye out for damage due to ice. It’s also a good idea to check up there after storms.
  • Gutters: Have your gutters cleaned regularly—or, if you’re brave, do it yourself—especially in late autumn, after all the leaves have fallen. Also make sure that the gutter itself is in good condition.
  • Check the Attic: Checking the underside of the roof will allow you to find out if there are any leaks. Drips and stains on your ceilings or walls are signs that there’s problem. Also, look for soft spots in the wood, as this could indicate animal or insect infestation.
  • Professional Inspections: It’s always a good idea to have your roof inspected once a year by a professional roofing contractor, even if you don’t see any signs of damage or know of any problems. The roofing contractor will be able to find any signs of damage and catch problems you might otherwise overlook, and it’s important to address small issues before they become more serious.
