  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis

    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.

Two-Part Blog: Maximizing Roof Life Expectancy

In the first part of our two-part blog, we discussed the factors that affect your roofing system’s life expectancy. These include things like inclement weather, poor installation, and subpar attic ventilation. Now, we’ll talk about simple strategies you can adopt to maximize your roof’s service life:

Regular Inspections

Performing regular inspections allows you to catch minor issues before they escalate into major, costly problems. Leaks, for example, can grow in only a couple of weeks. That small leak you ignored? That could cause major water damage in a few weeks if you don’t attend to it promptly.

This is why we recommend investing in professional inspections. At Universal Roofing and Siding, our experience allows us to identify problems that an untrained eye cannot detect.

Immediate Roof Repair

Once you’ve spotted a problem on your roof, it’s important to arrange for prompt roof repair. Let’s take the small leak problem as an example. While it might seem unnecessary to repair a small and insignificant-looking leak, it’s more economical to repair it when it’s less of a threat. The cost of repairing a minor leak is relatively small compared to the amount of money you’ll have to shell out when it worsens and causes widespread damage in your home.

Gutter Cleaning

Your gutters play a big role in protecting your roof because they are responsible for redirecting water to the downspouts. A clogged gutter can cause water damage to the lower deck board or fascia and to your home’s exterior. Clogged gutters also put unnecessary weight on the deck, which can physically damage the roof structure and loosen the shingles.

At Universal Roofing and Siding, we offer professional residential and commercial roofing services. We’ll make sure the repairs and maintenance work we do result in a maximized lifespan for your roof. Give us a call at (317) 257-0779 for more information on our services. We offer complete roofing services throughout Fishers, Indianapolis, and Zionsville, IN.
