Roofing – Prevention
When it comes to your roof, prevention is always the best strategy. Roofing problems can happen suddenly and unexpectedly when you’re not ready for them and unfortunately, they’re not cheap. Since your roofing system is integral to your home and building’s structural support, problems can be dangerous and lead to more extensive issues with your foundation and support. That’s why, at Bison Builders, we believe that prevention is the best course of action.
Preventing problems is always better, easier, and cheaper than fixing them, especially when it comes to your residential or commercial roof. Complete roof replacements are not cheap, so make sure that you’re covered by taking the proper preventative care with ongoing roof maintenance. Since roofing systems are well known to be one of the most vulnerable parts of your home or business’ exterior, Bison Builders offers preventative plans to make sure that rain, hail, snow, sleet, wind, and excessive sun exposure don’t wreak havoc on your roof.
Our preventative roofing strategies take into account your roof’s design, the type of materials used, how your roof was installed, and a tried-and-true maintenance program. Bison Builders uses preferred roofing systems that encourage longevity and durability, but even if your roof was installed by another company, it can still be salvaged with proper preventative care.
Need to know how much your cost?
While we recommend saving your roofing maintenance and prevention work for the professionals, there are things that you can do to make sure problems don’t spread. For strong roof prevention against common problems, make sure that you regularly clean your gutters and keep an open, unobstructed downspout. Clogged gutters can create thousands of dollars in damage that could have otherwise been easily avoided. If you’re uncomfortable getting on ladders to clean the gutters, don’t worry. Roofing prevention can extend to your gutters and should be completed once in the fall and once in the spring—more if there are severe storms or you have a lot of trees or shrubbery surrounding your roof.
We also recommend making visual inspections regularly in between your professionally scheduled roofing inspections. This will allow you to see any problems that may require more immediate attention. Whenever you’re walking around your home, make it a habit to look up and visually inspect the areas of your roof that you can see, especially after a particularly bad storm. If you notice anything that seems out of the ordinary, contact Bison Builders for a more thorough inspection.
Damage prevention for your roof also includes regular landscaping, removing any leaves or moss, and making sure that your roof is well ventilated. Poorly ventilated roofs lead to the formation of ice dams, which are extremely dangerous and can cause substantial damage to your home.
