If your roof is on the older side, then you may be looking for ways to give it a bit of its old luster. “As long as your roof isn’t leaking water into your home, you can often spruce it up without the expense of major repairs or roof replacement.” With this in mind, consider some of the following ideas to get your roof looking like new!
Bring Your Roof Back to Life
Obviously, your roof suffers a lot of ‘abuse.’ Weather and debris fall onto it all the time and cause minor damage. It also gets very dirty from these and other causes (think about birds and animals, too, that climb over its surface). In order to clean off some of that grime, give it a good wash every once in a while, or have a professional company take care of it. You’d be surprised how easy it is to make it look years ‘younger!’
“Did you know that your attic impacts the service life of your roof?” That is, you can give your roof a cleaning ‘from the inside out’ if you head up into the attic and do a little maintenance in there. Improper ventilation often leads to excess heat, which can do damage to the shingles and “invite mold growth and wood decay.” In the winter, too, the roofing surface can be at risk based on what the state of your attic is. This can actually lead to ice dams, so make sure that your attic space is well-ventilated to avoid such issues in any season.
Your roof may have a tired appearance if the shingles are older, broken, damaged, or simply faded. Having some or all of them replaced can not only increase the value and appeal of your home, but also protect it from water and other damage.
