Most commercial property owners and residential property owners focus on roof leaks when they happen. They don’t realize that the best way to prevent roof leaks is through the regular inspection and maintenance of the roof.
When you do not maintain your roof, it can present with a leak when you least expect it. Roof leaks can be quite problematic. First of all, finding the leak can be an exhaustive experience, even for professional roofers. And when the leak is discovered, it is usually quite expensive to fix.
The costs of a roof replacement are not trivial and can range from $5,000-$15,000 depending on the size and extent of the leak. It is thus important to ensure that the roof is well maintained and regularly inspected. The cost for maintenance usually turns out to be much less than what you would pay to restore or replace the roof.
Here are some tips on how you can prevent roof leaks:
Since most homeowners may not even own a ladder, the best way to check the roof is with the help of a roofing professional. One can enroll in a maintenance plan where the professional contractor comes twice a year and performs a thorough check of the interior and exterior of the home for a leaking roof. These maintenance plans are the best way to increase the shelf life of your roof and protect your home.
