Because of its unconventional design, a low-slope roofing system comes with a set of maintenance requirements that are markedly different from its steeper counterparts. Once you understand them, keeping your low-slope roof in good shape becomes easier. The premier roof maintenance and storm damage repair company, Summit Roofing & Restoration, Inc. shares a few dos and don’ts to get you started.
- DO inspect your roof regularly. Low-slope roofing is more prone to debris buildup and drainage issues because it’s not as effective at shedding them compared to a steep-pitched system. For this reason, it’s important that you inspect it once every season. Make sure to watch out for evidence of ponding water, debris accumulation, obvious holes, blisters, cracks, and tears, and weak sections appearing near the edges of the flashing.
- DON’T put off repairs. Should you discover any, or all, of the warning signs stated above, promptly call your trusted roofing company, Summit Roofing & Restoration, Inc. You can count on us to restore your system to rights and prolong its performance. Never overlook roof repair–otherwise, you’ll be leaving the system vulnerable to further damage, which in turn, allows for costlier and more extensive restoration work. In fact, when the damage is serious enough, an early roof replacement becomes more than a possibility.
- DO keep the drains clog-free. You’ll know your low-slope roof has clogged drains when its gutters are overflowing. To avoid leaks and other issues, have the blockages cleared immediately.
- DON’T forget to trim any overhanging tree branches. By cutting them back, you’re not just preventing congestion in the roof’s drainage areas–you’re also keeping your system protected against possible impact damage. Those branches may not seem like much right now, but you’ll be surprised at the damage they can do to a roof during a storm.
