Tips For Maintaining New Roofs

Picture Perfect Houses On Newly Built Estate

Taking care of your property’s exterior is important for the integrity of the building, especially when it comes to new roofs. You want to ensure that you do everything you can to keep it looking great so it lasts for as long as it can and decreases the need for repairs. Here are just some things you can do to keep it in good condition after installation.

Maintaining the integrity of your roof is essential for the overall health of your property. Here are some tips to help you ensure your roof stays in top shape.

Keep Gutters Clean

Guttering is an important component of your roofline and entire property. It directs rainwater away from the foundations of your home, so it’s essential to keep them clear. Cleaning your gutters regularly helps to prevent blockages caused by leaves, sticks, moss, and other debris. Clogged gutters can lead to water build-up, potentially causing damage to new roofs too. At RS Cladding & Roofing, we can clean guttering for you to help keep your roof in great condition.

Prompt Repairs

Regularly inspect new roofs for any signs of damage or wear. Look for cracked or missing tiles, discoloration, or any other abnormalities. It’s also advisable to check the interior of your property for signs of leaks or structural damage. As soon as you spot any issues, ensure you enlist roofers to get it sorted quickly to reduce the impact of any damage.

Trim Plants

Trees and plants could potentially ruin the condition of new roofs if not maintained correctly. If you do have these plants near a structure, it’s important to trim and cut them back accordingly. Overhanging branches can dislodge tiles. Climbing plants like ivy, although pretty, can compromise the structural integrity of your roof by anchoring themselves between tiles.

moss

Remove Moss

New roofs should be clear of any plant matter. Moss growing on roofing is quite common, but it’s important to clear it quickly. Moss retains moisture, which can accelerate the deterioration of your roofing material over time. Removal is recommended to ensure there’s no moisture damage caused by moss.
