Every single day we live right under the most important component of our home, and we ignore it for years at a time. Our roof is there to protect our home, family and almost everything we own. Yet the neglect most people show it would be considered appalling by almost any standard. It's one of those things we like to take for granted, and tend to only pay attention to when it has a problem. There is a better way.
Much like your teeth, a roof's life can be extended by having routine checkups and a little maintenance done here and there. If your roof is visible from the ground, take a close look at it occasionally to see if any debris (leaves, limbs, etc.) is building up in the valleys or gutters. These backups cause leaks and degrade shingle roofs until they leak.
Every few years you should call Concord to come out and take a look at your roof and give you a thorough inspection. Also, if your roof is two story and/or steep, definitely use a professional who is used to working on such surfaces. Falls from roofs are a real danger and these types of inspections should only be left to professionals.
If you feel like your roof needs an inspection, please don't hesitate to call and let us take a look at it. Get that little extra confidence that your roof is up there doing its job properly, and sleep better tonight.
