Roof maintenance is essential to the optimal performance and longevity of your roofing system. However, it needs to be done properly in order to ensure your roof is receiving the care it requires. Unfortunately, some misconceptions about roof maintenance are still common among homeowners.
In this article, Frame Restoration Roofing and Construction discusses the facts behind some of the most common roof maintenance myths.
A Roof Warranty Covers All Roofing Issues
Some warranties may offer comprehensive coverage for roof systems. However, even these premium types of roofing warranties do not cover 100% of the materials used in the entire roof installation process. Typically, material warranties can only cover material defects from manufacturing. If your roof developed issues due to poor installation, severe weather or lack of maintenance, its manufacturer warranty wonít be able to cover such damage. Make sure to read the fine print of your roofing warranty so that youíll know what to expect and when and how you can use it.
A New Roof Wonít Require Maintenance for the First Few Years
A newly installed roof still needs proper maintenance even though itís unlikely to have any significant issues anytime soon. With proper upkeep, you can prevent premature breakdowns and ensure all roof components and penetrations are working and properly sealed.
No Visible Damage Means No Problem
Some roofing issues are not immediately apparent, and you may fail to spot them during a quick visual inspection from the ground. That is why itís important to have your roof professionally inspected at least twice a year. Roof inspections can alert you to problems that could potentially result in serious damage later on, thus giving you the chance to fix the issue even before it gets worse and costlier to repair.
