The new year means new opportunities which is why a lot of people create a New Year’s resolution in order to help them stay on track and achieve everything that they would like to over the next 365 days. With this said, it can often cause us to put important odd jobs that need doing to the back of our mind and when this comes down to things like our roof, it can have disastrous consequences. Here are a few roofing top tips for the new year….

 

Gutters

It is very important to ensure that your gutter is clean and cleared as a blockage will cause any excess rainwater to sit on top of your roof and this can result in the material weakening. After all, the last thing you want to deal with is a complete collapse of your roof down to irregular gutter maintenance and cleaning when it can be very easily avoided.

 

Pressure Washing

Having a clean roof is not always the first thing on most people’s mind however for some it is a necessity. With this said, you should never pressure wash your roof as it can cause the decay process to kick in, loosen the material and remove its protective surface layer and a weak roof is not going to protect your home or business building very well.

 

Maintenance 

Every so often throughout the year you will notice that your roof requires the odd job or professional assistance. Whilst it may not look like a big deal, it can be very important that you completely fix them sooner rather than later. This is because little problems can very easily become a big problem if you choose to ignore them.
