4 Easy Ways to Maintain Your Roof in Reno

Living in Reno, NV helps you avoid some of the hassles that homeowners in other regions face. While you don’t need to worry about snow and ice, you do need to opt for routine maintenance, especially as the seasons change. Learn some of the easy things you can do and when to call Joe’s Roofing for maintenance help.

1. Take Care of Trees

The Reno area has quite a few trees that can affect your roof. Apricot mellow and coffeeberry trees are some types that might be growing in your yard right now. The leaves they shed can easily form clogs in your gutters. When the water has nowhere to go, it spills over the sides and onto the roof, which can cause water damage. Trimming back your trees will also reduce the risk of branches breaking during winter storms and hitting your roof.

2. Replace Damaged Shingles

Damaged shingles are a bigger problem than you might think. They allow moisture and debris to get under your other shingles and can eventually cause the entire roof to come off piece by piece. You might see a few shingles sitting in your yard after a storm or notice that some are missing from the roof. As the problem worsens, it can lead to interior leaks. Call a professional to replace your damaged shingles and do whatever other roof repairs are needed to fix the problem.

3. Get Rid of Moss

When you see moss growing on your roof, don’t assume that you can let it be for a few weeks. Moss is potentially dangerous because it can pull the shingles off your roof. It can also grow over your roof and down the walls of your home in less time than you thought was possible. Another risk is that moss can weaken the integrity of your roof. At the first sign of moss, get help removing it.

4. Clean Your Gutters

Cleaning your gutters is the best way to ensure that you don’t have any problems this fall or winter. Your gutters keep standing water away from your roof and carry it far enough away that it won’t damage your foundation. Fall is a good time to inspect your gutters and see if you need to replace the gutters or downspouts. It’s helpful to hire a professional for the job because you can easily slip and fall off a ladder while inspecting and cleaning your gutters.

Keep Your Roof in Great Shape

Depending on the type of roof you have, it can last for just a decade or longer than 20 years. Maintaining your roof is the best way to make sure it’s in great shape and that you don’t need any expensive repairs. Contact Joe’s Roofing today to get help with any maintenance your Reno, NV roof needs.

Joe promptly answered our call for assistance, even though it was the day before Thanksgiving. Joe went out of his way to complete a roof inspection within a very tight time frame and provided the information we needed. He took the time to answer our questions and was polite and punctual as well.
