Spring is a great time to, dare we say it, spring clean, but it’s not just inside that needs extra attention. It’s outside too and not just at ground level. Your roof can also benefit greatly from regular cleaning and maintenance, so let’s see the types of things you should be doing.
When most people think about roof cleaning they only consider the gutters. It’s somewhat understandable, because gutters full of leaves, mud or other debris, or downpipes that are blocked, can cause major damage. So a great way to start your spring roof cleaning is by cleaning your gutters and downpipes and inspecting them for any damage. This is such an important job that we recommend it’s done twice a year, so make a note in your calendar to revisit the job in autumn.
Don’t like the idea of cleaning your gutters and downpipes twice a year? We can’t blame you. The easiest way to say goodbye to this job is to have mesh gutter guards installed to divert leaves and rubbish away from your gutters.
Roof cleaning isn’t just about gutters and downpipes. You can extend the life of your roof and increase its street appeal by regularly cleaning the rest of your roof. This process will remove the dirt, algae and moss that can accumulate and which can lead to bigger, more expensive problems down the track.
If you clean your roof, gutters and downpipes regularly, chances are you won’t need to worry about roof maintenance all that often. But there will come a day when maintenance will need to be carried out on your roof.
Inspect your roof for any signs of damage that needs fixing. This may include loose or broken tiles, tile cement that is cracked or displaced, metal or polycarbonate sheeting that is lifting, flashing that is starting to rust, valley gutters that have corrosion and damage to fascias or other timber components. Get any issues you see fixed immediately, before they become a big issue.
Inspecting your roof regularly as part of an ongoing program of roof cleaning and maintenance can save you from major expenses in the long run.
