In our previous installment, we discussed the dangers of postponing roof repairs: the potential structural damage, health effects and how it can leave your home vulnerable in the event of a storm. Timely roof repairs conducted by professional roofing contractors do more than just avoid these problems. In this concluding blog, we take a closer look at the other end of the scale: its benefits.
It Can Save You Money
Scheduled maintenance and timely repairs address apparent roofing problems as well as spot potential ones. Conducting repairs at an early stage helps prevent these problems from getting bigger. More importantly, it costs only a small fraction of what it would have cost if you left such problems as is and wouldn’t be as disruptive. A well-kept roof also helps make your home more energy-efficient, resulting in energy savings.
It Can Help Maximize Roofing Performance
Roofing companies – including ourselves – recommend a preventive approach to roofing maintenance, instead of reactive one. We don’t recommend waiting for something to happen before having the roof problems addressed. As we discussed in our previous blog entry, the peace of mind that comes with a properly maintained roof is preferable over suffering through a storm and dealing with the damage afterwards.
It Keeps Your Warranty Intact
If you had your roofing recently installed, there’s a good chance that your roofing warranty will indicate that it requires regular maintenance and timely repairs, and neglect will result in voiding the warranty. With an expected life span of 20 to 30 years, the last thing you’d want is for your roof is to be left without a warranty when you need it the most. It can also have a favorable effect on your insurance premiums.
Roof repairs should always be entrusted to a roofing contractor that has the skills, training and certification: it’s safer, it’s less of a hassle, and it guarantees reliable results every time.
