Do you Need to Undertake Roofing Maintenance?

When the weekend rolls around, it’s probably unlikely that roofing maintenance makes it to the top of your activity list. With rickety ladders, sopping wet leaves and dangerous heights, roofing maintenance finds it very hard indeed to compete for a prized spot on your weekend plan.

It can be helpful, therefore, to be reminded of all the horrors that neglecting your roof's maintenance can inflict. So let's try to imagine what might happen if we choose to disregard our roof’s health.


It Will Start Raining in Your Living Room

You will probably be settling in for a cozy winter evening in front of the television with your nearest and dearest when a very unwelcome dripping will start from the roof. You’ll scream in vain at your children to fetch buckets and towels to prevent further damage, but deep down you know that the real damage has already been done. The water has made its way through your ill-maintained roof and likely caused thousands of dollars of damage.

You Will Become Poorer

Carrying out basic roofing maintenance will likely reduce your overall wealth. Roof repairs and replacement roofs are expensive – far more costly than the costs associated with regular upkeep. Not only are new roofs costly for your bank balance but they can affect your overall wealth too. Having a haggard old roof can wipe a significant chunk of money off the value of your property, not just because they look unappealing with all their stains and moss, but also because poorly maintained roofing undermines the structural integrity of your home. Nobody wants to buy a home with a roof that is nearing the end of its life.

You Will Open a Vermin Hotel

Ill-maintained roofing can lead to damage and decay, debris can start to pile up, and water drainage may become less efficient than it should. The warm conditions of your attic and ample supply of stagnant water make your home the ideal accommodation for rats, termites, spiders, squirrels, cockroaches and other unwelcome guests that may even start to venture further into your house, perhaps taking up residence in your bedroom.

So, Is Roofing Maintenance Necessary?

If you don’t like the idea of rain in your living room, the thought of slashing the value of your home and the notion of becoming a host to a range of offensive pests, then you probably should devote some time to looking after your roofing. If you don’t feel that you’re up to the task of looking after your roof, don’t despair! Several professionals are willing to do it for you!

So, before booking a table at your favourite restaurant this weekend, why not give us a call today and see how we can help you with your roofing maintenance? It could just be the most important phone call you make all year!
