Keep your roof clean

Clean leaves, debris, and garbage off your roof at least twice a year. Removing these objects on a regular basis will ensure that water doesn’t accumulate and lead to deterioration of the asphalt shingles.

Check for Algae and Moss

Algae and moss formations can lead to the deterioration of asphalt shingles. Algae and moss must be promptly removed and shingles should be sprayed to discourage the return of this growth in the future.

Inspect your roof for loose shingles

Over time, roof shingles can become loose. If you find loose shingles, secure them by applying a small quantity of cement to the underside of the shingles and by using nails to secure them. Damaged and missing shingles should be repaired or replaced as quickly as possible.

Keep your gutters clean

Keeping your gutters free of debris is essential to ensure that water flows properly off your roof. You should check both the gutters and the downspouts to ensure that all potential blockage is removed.

Inspect your roof for overgrown tree branches

Look for tree branches that may have grown onto the roof and might be creating unnecessary wear on your roof as the branches are blown by the wind. Any branches that are scraping your roof need to be removed.
