The roofing on your home or business is designed to last for a number of years, as long as you take proper care of it. Here are some common roofing mistakes you need to avoid making if you want your roof to last for as long as possible.
- Using a Pressure Washer on Your Roof- When your roof starts to look dirty and old, you might think that the best way to make it look like new again is to give it a good cleaning with a pressure washer. However, doing this will ruin the granules on your shingles that are designed to protect your roof from leaks.
- Ripping Up Shingles – A leaky roof is every property owner’s worst nightmare. If you think that your roof has a leak, don’t go up on top of your roofing and start pulling up the shingles to find out where the leak is coming from. Doing this will only cause unnecessary damage to your shingles.
- Walking on Top of Your Roof- Even if you have good balance, walking on top of your roof is a recipe for disaster. If you think that there’s a problem with your roof, avoid the urge to pull out your ladder and go check up on it. Instead, leave the inspection up to a professional.
