Learn about the importance of a roof tune up and what contractors look for when conducting an inspection. 

Roofs work hard to protect your home from damaging storms, winds, hail, the heat of the sun and the freezing temperatures of winter. You might want to consider a roof tune up to ensure that your roof is performing at the highest level. Here is what will be checked during your roof tune up. 

1 – Shingle deterioration 

Shingles are long lasting and durable, but they are going to get old and worn out eventually. Your tune up includes a thorough shingle inspection where inspectors will look for curling, splitting, torn, or lifted shingles. Some of these things can be fixed before they become a bigger problem. 

2 – Tree placement  

It’s nice to have trees around your home so you don’t have to worry about as much sunlight in the house. It’s also great to have shade around your home for family outdoor living. But tree branches that encroach upon your home can scratch the roof, gouge materials and place a lot of leaves and debris on top of your home. The inspector will take a look at trees that might be overhanging your house and suggest that you cut certain branches back. Leaves lying on the roof could even cause gutter blockage, mold and other damage. 

3 – Gutter inspection 

Gutters are an integral part of the way your home operates during a rainstorm. They move the water away from your home and its foundation and keep your house safe. If they are blocked, peeling away from the house, or not working in another way, they’re a danger to permanent damage. The inspection will carefully take a look at every gutter to ensure proper function. 

It’s always nice to have a roof in good shape, but after years of use, things are bound to go wrong. Contact Go Roof Tune Up to get a full inspection of your roof to ensure it’s ready for another year in the sun. It’s easier to take care of small repairs now than it is to wait and have major leaks or other issues pop up later. Go Roof Tune Up will do a thorough inspection with high experience to catch big or small potential problems on your roofing system.
