Refurbishing or restoring your roof can be costly.
Spending a few minutes every six months looking thoughtfully at your roof can help you determine roof care opportunities that will help prevent costly repairs later.
It’s also important to periodically review your homeowner’s guarantee to ensure your policy provides for roof damage.
WHAT TO CONSIDER
It’s crucial that you inspect your roof every spring and fall. A great time to do this is when you’re cleaning your gutters.
If you notice any traces of leaking, like dark spots on the ceiling, or mold or dampness in your attic, take action promptly. Roof leaks become worse, not better, and it’s better to spend a few Rands on roof maintenance rather than a chance on a big repair.
