A metal roof can be both beautiful and functional, but it won’t stay perfect forever. Only regular maintenance can prolong its service life and preserve its beauty. Sprague Roofing and Restoration, your leading roof repair company, shares three tips for keeping metal roofs around longer.
Maintain Proper Ventilation
Ventilation is just as important as insulation for metal roofs. Along with poor ventilation comes a host of problems like heat build up, moisture damage and compromised insulation. And in winter, inadequate ventilation could also contribute to the formation of ice dams at the edge of your roof.
You can avoid costly and time-consuming damage and repairs by continuously improving roof ventilation in order to better regulate the temperature of your roof.
Keep Your Gutters Clean
A well-functioning gutter system is essential to a healthy roof. When the gutters are doing their job and working properly, the chances of water damage and roof deterioration are greatly lessened, even when there’s heavy rainfall. This applies to roofs made of other materials, too. When your gutter system is kept clean and free of clogs, it will be able to effectively drain rainwater away from the house immediately after a storm.
When you spot leaks or cracks in your gutters, you should call in the gutter repair experts at Sprague Roofing and Restoration to get them it back into shape.
Schedule Regular Inspections
It’s highly recommended to have an expert keep a close eye on your metal roof by performing regular inspections of it. The practice of scheduling inspections regularly pays off by helping you be more aware, prepared and ready to face any damage forming on your metal roofing system.
