As if purchasing a home isn’t expensive enough, maintenance and repair costs can really burn a hole in your pocket – especially when it comes to something as important as roofing & Roof Repairs. Whether you have an old rickety roof or a fairly new one, there’s always something that can be done to improve on or keep up its condition. At Archer Roofing, we provide a wide selection of lasting roofing solutions, so we’re experts on advising homeowners on how to prevent the cumulative impact of long-term damage. These four simple secrets will help you keep your roof in pristine condition and save some cash in the process.
- Fallen Leaves and Rubble Go Into The Bin
As harmless as they may seem, leaves can back up your gutter system if not taken care of promptly. If you make a habit of clearing your roof and gutters regularly, rainwater will be re-routed without causing any damage to your home. A failure to do so can result in flooding and water seeping in where it’s not supposed to.
- A Little Ventilation Goes A Long Way
If you’re constructing your home, make sure you have a breathable roof design to ward off any possibility of rot. Ventilation allows for the free movement of heat and moisture, which means damage will be minimized. Ask your Auckland Roofing team to suggest which materials and designs work best in this regard, then choose the one that suits you.
- Snip Off Tree Branches With Potential To Cause Damage
Trees provide shade, add character to your property and create the oxygen we need to breathe. However, heavy branches that lean in too close to your roof could scratch or scuff your roof tiles. Make sure you trim those few branches so that all parts of your property can exist harmoniously.
- Don’t Be Shy To Call in A Pro
There’s a misconception that hiring expert roofing contractors will cost an arm and a leg. Look at it this way: if you try to DIY and end up breaking something else, you’ll end up spending more in the long run. Rest assured knowing that the job’s been done right from the outset by going with a pro. You can contact Archer Roofing today for a free quote or call 0210 347 191 for more information.
