When it comes to home maintenance tips, there are plenty. However, very few are as important as those pertaining to the maintenance of your roof. Your roof protects your home’s interior and your belongings from the elements and helps to maintain the integrity of your home’s structure. For this reason, you want to ensure it is in tip-top shape year-round.
Fortunately, you need only to inspect your roof on an annual basis, ideally once the bad weather has passed. It’s after the rainy and windy seasons that you’ll gain the most accurate assessment of the state of your roof. You may need to make repairs every couple of years, but you shouldn’t have to replace your roof until it is 10 to 20 years old, depending on the material of which it’s made.
