Virtually every roof system
will at one time or another need maintenance
; whether shingles
, wood shakes
or flat roofs
. Many times, properly maintaining your roof will help prevent expensive repairs later on. Remember, your roof protects EVERYTHING under it; ceilings, flooring, and everything in between. Cracked, broken and slipped tile allow moisture to find a way under tile and can prematurely degrade the underlayment.
Issues such as plugged valleys on tile roofs if not addressed in a timely manner, can lead to costly repairs to the roof and damage to your home's interior. Missing shingles or wood shake-shingles need to be addressed as they too will compromise your roof system. Flat roof systems need timely maintenance in order to prevent leaks and prolong their life expectancy.
