What Exactly is a Roof Maintenance Plan?
Simply put, a roof maintenance plan is a way to make sure that small problems don’t turn into big ones. Even if everything looks satisfactory from the street level, damage could be taking place without your knowledge. Things such as water or moisture infiltration, mold growth, even animal activity and insect infestations can go unnoticed until it becomes a serious issue.

If you have a commercial roof, another great benefit of regular roof maintenance is that it helps to keep your liability insurance costs under control.

At your home, regular roof maintenance is also a great idea.

Who Should Maintain My Roof?
Ideally, the company that first installed your roof is a great choice for roof maintenance. However, that’s not always a feasible choice. So that leaves two basic options. The first is to do the maintenance yourself. There are a few problems with this choice, including safety and time concerns. Also, insurance companies will rarely provide incentives for DIY roof maintenance. The second choice is to hire someone like Nunez Roofing to do the job.

This means that we have experience with local weather conditions, animal life, and potential sources of roof damage.

How Often Should You Do Maintenance on Your Roof?
Nunez Roofing recommends having a professional roof inspection at least once a year. This is especially important if you live in an area with severe weather conditions like high winds or heavy snowfall. During an inspection, a roofing contractor will check for any damage and make repairs as needed. They’ll also clear away any debris that could cause problems in the future.
In addition to yearly inspections, you should also have your roof cleaned on a regular basis. This helps to remove any dirt, leaves, or other debris that could clog drains and Gutters and lead to water damage. Most homeowners can handle roof cleaning themselves, but it’s always best to consult a professional if you’re not sure how to proceed.
