It is very important to have a proper roof maintenance
It is very important to have a proper roof maintenance. Our roofs always get exposed to the sun, rain, and snow. These factors all take a toll slowly to the membrane of the roof until the life of a roof is expired. Our Roofs need regular inspections done by professional roofing contractors and promoted roof repairs.
Benefits of roof maintenance
You may wonder, what are the benefits of spending money annually maintain your roof? After a collection of research, it was discovered that a well-maintained roof will last its manufactured expected life. In contrast, a poorly maintained roof will last a homeowner half its life.
A handful of people would say “That is why we purchased a warranty.” Don’t think a warranty will help if your roof has not been maintained. Most roofing manufacturers clearly state that if a homeowner doesn’t have proof (Invoices, receipt, estimates) of maintenance, then the warranty can be voided.
Regular Roof Inspections
Experienced homebuilders know that a roof on a residential building needs to be inspected twice a year. Most homebuilders hire third-party contractors to do the inspection and evaluate the condition of the roof. The initial choice comes down to the cheapest guy to do the roof inspection, hired by the homebuilder. Homeowners are always better off going to an accredited roofing contractor in their area. Charlotte Pro Roofing will provide 3 major issues to be on the lookout when doing a maintenance roof inspection.
1. Exposed Roofing Nails:
Expose roofing nails are very easily spotted when walking around the roof. Not the case if you are looking at a roof from ground level. If the nail has been exposed to the weather they will look rusted. The rusted nail provides a pathway for water. Water can get into the attic and later into the home. Charlotte Pro Roofing ensures that after each full roof replacement, or roof repair we caulk all exposed nail with NP1.
2. Sun cracking ventilation boots:
Cracking roofing boots are caused by a combination of sun exposure,wind storms and hail storms. Over time the sun dries out the rubber causing it to crack. Hail storms break off the dried rubber, and the high winds blow it off the roofs. Charlotte Pro roofing makes an extra effort to put NP1 roofing caulk around the roofing boot and the ventilation pipe. We also use a high-grade ice and water barrier to protect the boots from the elements. These measures ensure extended life on the roofing ventilation pipes.
3. Loose Granules:
The primary cause of loose granules is foot traffic caused by other people and hail storms. When the A/C man is on your roof doing a repair, every step he takes causes granules to loosen. Also, whenever hail hits a shingle, the impact can cause the granules to loosen. Over time the granules are gone and the internal roofing components can get exposed also. Charlotte Pro Roofing offers temporary patches for loosened granules. We also apply tar to the damaged area. Next, we take loose granules from the gutter and apply them over the area. This will work as a tempory fix.
