Reasons to Get Proactive About Roof Care
There are two main ways to take care of your roof: proactively and reactively. Both are similar in their ability to keep your roof in good health and protect your home and your loved ones. However, the two are drastically different in terms of quality, frustration, and effectiveness. The proactive approach is vastly superior and always the better option.
Your roof is the last place you want to procrastinate repairing, replacing, or otherwise resolving any issues. Sooner (rather than later) is always best in the roofing business. Proactive roof maintenance and routine inspections together help you spot and fix potential problems before minor damage becomes major.
A roof’s condition depends on how well you take care of it—and a little attention goes a long way. More than just keep problems small, proper and timely care can help extend the service life of your roof, saving you thousands of dollars along the way. Here are the best reasons to get proactive about roof care.
Proactive roof care.
Designed to keep your roof in good condition through regular inspections and minor repairs, proactive roof care helps prevent small problems from growing into larger, more expensive ones. Frequent and scheduled attention, focused on identifying, repairing, and resolving issues, ensures you get the most from your roof’s lifespan. In fact, a roof with proactive care can exceed its warranty by a decade or more.
Reactive roof care.
Most homeowners take the reactive approach to roof care. Mostly after severe weather causes serious damage—from roof leaks to blown-off tiles and shingles— reactive roof care aims to repair and resolve issues only as they arise. Homeowners that “react” to roof damage only call a professional when the roof needs an urgent fix.
Enjoy peace of mind.
Routine maintenance gives you the peace of mind of knowing your roof is in good condition. Staying on top of damage—rather than sitting and hoping no problems happen after a storm—can certainly help you sleep at night. Plus, adopting a long-term mindset beats the frustration of having to deal with urgent roofing matters.
Spend less money.
The financial balance of proactive roof care often means spending more up front but also saving more in the long run. In a business where the size of a leak equals the size of the price tag to fix it, and where turn-around times to fix a roof can take a few days to a few weeks, regular inspection helps keep your roofing problems simple and your financial burden small.
Stay one step ahead.
It pays to be one step ahead—and regular inspection does wonders for your investment. More than just make damage easier to identify, proactive roof care helps keep damage minimal. The inconvenience of reactive roof care surfaces when ignored problems negatively impact roofing performance. Fixing problems before they become serious ensures your roof performs at its best.
Recognize the value.
More than just a barrier to protect your home, a new roof is an investment in your property—one you should recognize long after you pay for the cost of the roof. A proactive approach to repairs—which prevents further damage from happening—shows you recognize the value.
Leaks, broken shingles, and other problems left to sit for too long force you to spend more to get the full value out of your roof. Proactive care plays a huge role in reducing the cost to maintain a top-performing roof.
A regular roof inspection also means you can confidently guarantee the condition of your roof to potential buyers when it comes time to sell your home. More than just save you money on repairs, proactive roof care can help you get a higher price from a buyer.
Preserve your home.
Proactive roof care also keeps your property well-protected from damage. A regular inspection prevents common problems including interior and exterior water damage, and preserves the strength and stability of your siding and foundation. A proactive approach to proper ventilation and insulation also preserves the overall comfort inside your home.
Protect your coverage.
Most homeowners insurance policies cover the cost to fix a damaged roof. However, the trick is to repair or replace your roof within the given time frame, before your coverage expires. Roof repairs and replacements are pricey projects without homeowners insurance coverage. A proactive approach to repairs helps make the most of your roof policy and investment.
Strengthen your weather defense.
Your roof’s primary function is to protect your home against the elements. Exposure to everyday weather can slowly deteriorate your roof, making your home more vulnerable to heavy rain, snow, and hail storms. Proactive roof care can sustain and even extend your roof’s performance, protecting your home from harsh weather conditions for years to come.
Turn back the clock.
Your roof can stand test of time, especially with proactive care and regular inspections from a trusted roofing contractor. Turning back the clock means helping your roof withstand decay, algae, mold, shingle damage, and any other problems which can compromise the strength, appearance, and longevity of your roof and home.
Reduce your risks.
Waiting for the next roof problem to happen is never a good idea. Proactive roof care alerts you to the immediate concerns to focus on and fix before those same concerns become more costly repairs. The process reduces your risk of a world of potential problems and expenses.
