Are you paying enough attention to your roof? Roof maintenance is the last item on some homeowners’ list as they only consider the condition of the roof once it has been damaged. Your roof is an investment and like anything you value, it should be prioritized. Regular maintenance can increase the lifespan of your roof and save you money in the long run.

Here we take a look at the maintenance requirements for different types of roofing by asking three questions to help make your roof maintenance more effective.

What Type Of Roof Do I Have?

When it comes to roof maintenance, one size does not fit all. To determine which kind of maintenance your roof requires, it is a good idea to start by identifying the roofing material you have.

Tile Roofs

Tile roofs are available in clay or concrete and are beneficial because of their fire, rain, and high wind resistance. They are considered an investment as they can last up to 50 years with regular maintenance. However, some tiles can be more fragile than other roofing systems as they can break or crack when stepped on.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingle roofs are the preferred option for many homeowners because of their durability and their price-point. As the name suggests, the roofing makes use of asphalt for waterproofing and is available in organic or fiberglass. When maintained properly, an asphalt shingle roof can last up to 20 years. A basic maintenance requirement is that the shingles are checked regularly to replace or repair pieces that are loose or damaged.

Flat Roofs

Flat roofs are almost completely level and are typically coated with layers of bitumen sheets, a single-ply membrane, or rubber. Flat roofs can last up to 20 years before they need replacement. They should be inspected at least twice a year to prevent everyday wear and tear. During hurricane season in South Florida, flat roofs should be inspected after every storm. (Continued)
