Dependable Construction works with many residential and commercial property owners and managers throughout Ohio. Most common issues we asked about a maintaining the roof. Here is a list of the top 7 things we tell them.
- INSPECT CONSISTENTLY
All roofing systems must be inspected at least once a year, Dependable Construction recommends twice a year. We also advise after every major storm.
- MAINTAIN THE SURFACE
Flat roof surfaces require attention. Always clear away snow in the winter, keep gutters free and clear of debris, and remove debris in the summer and fall. Excess debris can lead to rot and other issues like adding stress to surface.
- REPAIR RIGHT AWAY
If a problem does occur with your roof, never wait to repair it. Waiting only ensures that the problem will excavate and could cause structural issues. Even if it is a minor repair, address it immediately.
- KEEP THE ROOF CLEAR
Heavy ice and snow in the winter can be damaging. Get a professional to remove snow build up to keep the excess weight off the roof.
- KEEP THE ROOF CLEAN If you notice mossy build up on your roof, have a professional like Dependable Construction come out to inspect the roof and clean it. This can also be done during maintenance inspections.
- KEEP THE TREES AWAY
Keep trees trimmed away from roofs as much as possible. Falling branches will cause damage, limbs that consistently brush the roof in the wind will wear it down, and leaves can cause staining on the roof.
- CHOOSE THE RIGHT CONTRACTOR
Are they licensed and insured? Can they Provide references? Do they offer 24/7 emergency service? How do their warranties compare?
