When was the last time your roof underwent proper maintenance? Chances are, you weren’t even aware that your roof should be — and, for many reasons, needs to be — maintained on a regular basis. Just like water pipes and electrical systems, your roof is a vital component of your house that’s susceptible to wear and tear; in this case, from the sun and the elements.
If your roof has sprung a leak or if the shingles have started to crack, it cannot do its job correctly — leaving your home vulnerable to water damage and other similar issues. Having your roof inspected and maintained by our team at International Construction Services, Inc. once or twice a year or after a storm will help you mitigate problems and address issues before they grow even bigger.
Imagine you’re on vacation in Myrtle Beach with your family, but back home, a strong wind storm moves through Charleston, pulling a few hard-to-see shingles off your roof as it blows through. The missing shingles expose part of your roof and allow rain to seep in where it shouldn’t be. You come home to find a shingle near the fence line, but assume it came from your neighbor’s house and dispose of it without a second thought.
With each passing storm, more and more water is leaking into your home until one day, a few months later, you get home from work to find your couch and living room rug are soaked, and a huge leak in the ceiling above.
You file a homeowner’s insurance claim and contact your roof manufacturer about their warranty, but get the same response from both: coverage is dependent on regular roof maintenance, which you didn’t take care of. You need to replace everything, repair the ceiling, and schedule roof repair to fix the damage – and now you’re footing the bill for all of it. All this trouble came from a small problem that a professional would have caught immediately on an inspection.
This is exactly why it’s so important to schedule regular roof maintenance for your home. Investing in preventive roof maintenance doesn’t only help you enjoy a sturdy roof for many years; it also helps you save on huge, unnecessary costs in the long run.
