Roofing Tips For New Homeowners

Congratulations! You bought your first home! Although this is an exciting time, it is also one that is wrought with important responsibilities, one of the largest and most important being the maintenance of your home’s roof. Ensuring your roof’s health and good form will ensure the safety of your home’s inhabitants, your home’s aesthetics, and your home’s resale value.

Don’t worry though. By following these roofing tips and advice from Turnbull Roofing, a professional roofing company in Durham Region, your roof will always be in tip top shape.

Get An Inspection

This is the most basic step for new homeowners. It is essential to inspect your roof as roof inspections are not always a part of the pre-sale inspection criteria. Ensure that you hire a qualified and experienced roofing company to help you do this. After the inspection, the roofing company will determine the state of your roof, can help you solve any problems they may have noticed, and you will have a better understanding of the value of your home.

Work With Someone Trustworthy

Your roof is one of the most, if not the most, important parts of your home. Be sure to protect it by always working with a trustworthy roofing company. Some things you should look out for are:

  • Professionals who guarantee quality in their work
  • Businesses with contact numbers and emails that are easily accessible
  • Professionals who have been in the business for a long time
  • Testimonials and work examples from previous clients
Consistent Maintenance

Your roof is not something to be ignored. In fact, it requires constant maintenance and checks to ensure that it stays in the best possible condition. Some things that you should do are:

  • Clean your gutters regularly
  • Remove debris from your roof’s surface
  • Clear your downspouts
  • Search for dark stains (which could indicate a leak)
  • Get periodic inspections from a professional roofing company
