Our team at Sipe Roofing & General Contracting knows you care about your property, and we want to help you keep it in good condition. When it comes to property maintenance, one of the most important things to take care of is the roof, as a roof that leaks can lead to water damage and other structural problems. In this article, we will provide some advice on how best to keep your roofing in good repair.

How to Keep Your Roofing in Good Repair

•  Get Regular Inspections- One thing you can do to keep your roofing in good repair is to have it regularly inspected for problems. It’s much easier to correct issues with your roof when they are still in their early stages, before they have had the chance to grow into major problems.

•  Trim Your Branches- Another thing you can do to protect your roof and keep it in good shape is trim back overhanging tree branches. This does two things: one, it helps reduce the risk of storm damage, and two, it prevents leaves and other debris from falling onto your roof and trapping moisture there. Trapped moisture from leaves is one of the major contributors to eventual moisture damage, so it’s best to prevent it from happening as much as possible.

•  Attend to Your Gutters- Both residential and commercial roofing systems have gutters to collect rainwater and divert it away from the building. However, gutters can’t do their job effectively when clogged, so it’s important to clean them out regularly as another way to prevent moisture damage.
