clean out your gutters
One simple way to take care of your roof is to clean out the gutters with each season. Open gutters channel water away from your roof, protecting it from pooled water after a heavy rain or storm. Gutters clogged with leaves, sticks, and other debris don't operate as effectively and may result in standing water and a pesky leak. Unfortunately, one a roof leak festers, it is extremely difficult to reverse the damage. Therefore, regular gutter maintenance is a must-do. Gutter specialists can help keep the gutters cleaned out, but you can also do it yourself if you feel confident on a ladder!
check ventilation routes
Good ventilation routes release extra heat and moisture and allow fresh air and sunlight to filter inside. Without adequate ventilation, your rooftop can develop cool, damp areas - a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Bonfe Exteriors can help you identify any gaps in your ventilation system so you can protect your rooftop and extend your roof's lifespan.
