Where Dani writes about… just about everything!
Although roof maintenance is usually one of the furthest things from a home owner’s mind, it’s still something that needs to be thought about and considered — even, and especially, if you live in the south like I do! Having it inspected once a year after the spring and thunder storms that often come with it is generally a good idea. That will help keep you ahead of the game when it comes to finding and fixing small problems before they become larger, more expensive ones. And the first thing you want to do is to clear the roof of things like leaves and dirt — an Atlanta Roofer can help you out with this if you live in the Atlanta area. It isn’t difficult to find a good Roofer in Atlanta when you take to the Internet, especially if you use Google! I’m not even going to lie. Google is almost like a best friend of mine at this point. It’s awesome. It really is.
When you’re cleaning your roof, too, also bear in mind that algae accumulating isn’t necessarily a bad thing. You’re not going to want to call Roofing Repair Atlanta over algae unless there is really too much of it — a certain amount of algae does protect from the elements, although too much of it can make things hard as they relate to navigating the roof. After all, algae can be a little waxy…
You’ll also want to check your roof for rust, holes and dents. In doing so, you’ll catch leaks before they become larger problems! Replace anything that’s rusted, has holes or dents as soon as possible, and be sure to check your caulking and sealant as well. Be mindful of the surrounding tree limbs, too — you don’t want them to damage your roof. Clipping those, and keeping them short before they become issues and start to claw at your roof, is important.
All in all, these are things you want to remember when it comes to roof care!
