After making the investment in cedar
re-roofing, you’ll want to have a roofer perform regular preventative maintenance
and corrective maintenance for your new roof. Preventative maintenance
will prolong the life of your cedar roof, and reduce your risks of roof
damage, leaks, and costly repairs. Here is a look at the essentials of
preventative maintenance of cedar roofs.
Clean Your Roof and Gutters Regularly
You must clean your gutters regularly, preferably in the spring and fall.
To prevent roof damage, your roof’s downspouts should flow directly
into the ground or a gutter below, and should never empty onto a lower
roof surface. Because cedar roofs need to breathe, you must keep the roof
clean. Remove leaves, branches, and other debris regularly as part of
your preventative maintenance, and to reduce the risk of minor roof damage.
Ensure the Roof Has Proper Ventilation
Your roof should be ventilated, and any louvers and vents should be kept
clear. With adequate ventilation, you can prevent heat and moisture from
building up. You can also prevent water from pooling up on the roof and
then freezing, resulting in roof damage and a leaky roof. A roofing contractor
can help you identify potential problem roof areas and give you proper
preventative maintenance tips. He can also perform minor roof repairs
and corrective maintenance that will prevent more serious problems.
Schedule a Roof Analysis to Check for Roof Damage
A roofer can perform a roof analysis to check for potential problem roof
areas, identify minor roof damage, and provide corrective maintenance.
