The roof or roofing system of the house is the largest part of the house. And yet, it is the most unnoticed and often ignored part. We fuzz about every little corner in the house, but we seldom pay attention to the condition of our roof, until…
The roof is more than a mere structure. It is the cap on our head, the hood in our jacket, the umbrella when the sun is so hot or the rain is pouring hard. It gives us the protection that we need from the changing weather condition. It keeps us warm and cozy inside our homes. Taking care of our roof is not just a simple task to cleaning a certain part of the house. It is a commitment to our family—that we will always keep them safe inside our home.
Maintenance is the easiest way to keep your roof in tiptop shape. Remember “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? Simple things like inspecting the gutter and clearing the accumulated debris will go a long way in maintaining your roof. On a weekend (weather permitting) you can have a look-see of your roof right at the top to see if there are broken tiles or rust developing. You may also want to employ the services of roofing professionals to give you a rundown of the condition of your roof. A roof expert has vast experience at spotting possible problems that your untrained eyes may not be able to notice.
Cleaning your roof is also another way of preserving it. If you live in an area where there are a lot of trees, your roof can serve as depository of falling leaves. Clearing off the debris on your roof will help prevent rusting or growth of organisms like mold, moss, or mildew. After a strong weather disturbance like heavy rains or strong winds, inspect the condition of your roof to ensure that everything is in place and nothing is broken. Tiled roofs may require you to acquire the services of professionals to do a thorough cleaning. Getting rid of organism growth will need special treatment that only trained professionals can do. The good thing about getting this service is that you will not need it again in the next several years.
If your roof is really in a very bad state, you really have to get somebody to do roof restoration. A dilapidated roof is a health risk more than anything else. Rainwater leaking through the roof will soak the insulation in you ceiling. As the water will stay there for a long period of time, molds may soon grow and affect your family’s health. Seeping water may also damage your ceiling and other fixtures in the house. Once this happens, you are going to spend more on having your ceiling replaced and repainted.
