Aside from cleaning out gutters and clearing off dirt and debris other roof maintenance should be done regularly to ensure the roof function and longevity remain intact. Roof walks and regular inspections should be done to check for damage or natural wear. If a roof surface is worn out or torn a leak will likely form. Older elements of your roof system may dry out or wear down and need replacing. Maintenance checks should be done after equipment installations that impact the roof and after major storms.
