4 Tips for a Longer Lasting Roof

4 Tips for a Longer Lasting Roof

Purchasing a new roof can be a daunting task and with roofs being so pricy are you prepared for that financial burden?

The tips above will help keep your roof last longer, but it won’t save it from damage caused by an act of nature.


1.Don’t forcefully wash your shingles. Get a broom to clean off your roof or have a professional come take care of it. Power-washing your roof yourself could cause damage that will not be covered.

2. Insulate Properly. Insulating your house properly especially where the walls meet the roof will help prevent the buildup of ice dams which leads to leaks.

3. Correctly place ventilation systems in your home. Condensation can occur on the plywood that supports your shingles from poorly placed exhaust fans and vents in your home.

4. Clean your gutters! Cleaning your gutters can prevent them from eroding and can stop the buildup of water which could lead to leaks.
