The Importance of Maintaining Good Roof Health

Posted by at 9:00 AM

If you're like most homeowners, you probably have a forever-long list of home improvement projects to work on. We're also homeowners so know what that's like.  We also know how easy it can be to put off the things that seem less important, like regular roof inspections. Yet maintaining good roof health plays a major role in the overall protection of your home. 

Many times roofing disasters can be avoided simply by prevention, that is, tending to your roof before it becomes a problem. Waiting to repair your roof until an emergency occurs can be very expensive and inconvenient. Consistent roof maintenance provides you with peace of mind as well as the assurance of the following 4 benefits:

A Safeguarded Investment 

A home is one of the biggest investments a person can make. Because of this, we all want maintain our homes the best we can. Home is the place where we live, raise our families, and perhaps even spend the rest of our lives. Regular roof maintenance by a MN roofing company is one of the best ways to ensure you’re doing your best to extend the life of your roof, thereby avoiding costly disasters to your home.

An Increased Home Value 

Are you looking to put your home on the market?  You may not know this, but a well-kept roof is an excellent selling point. Many potential home buyers pay attention to roofs: the condition and quality of the materials used. By consistently maintaining the health of your roof you can be certain you are increasing in the value of your home.

Prevention of Unseen Damage

Small roof leaks may not be as obvious as a downpour in the family room, but they can be just as devastating if not more so.  Because minor leaks can go undetected for years, you will likely not be aware of their presence until beams rot out or mold and mildew cause major health concerns.  All these problems can be avoided by having a licensed roofing contractor inspect your roof periodically.

Reduced Utility Costs

A healthy roof contains 2 major elements: proper ventilation and functioning insulation.  These 2 factors will help you eliminate wasted energy while heating and cooling your home.  Good insulation will ensure warmer winters and cooler summers for your interiors.  The proper ventilation design plus quality insulation will help your HVAC system function effectively.
