Learn the Life Expectancy of Your Roof
Replacing a roof is one of the larger expenses of home ownership. While it’s tempting to put off, replacing an old roof can save you a lot of grief in the long run. Keeping the water out of your home is a necessity to maintaining the integrity of the overall structure. Plan to re-shingle your roof every 20 to 25 years (Rogers, 2015). Consult the roofing experts at Masterworks Painting & Remodeling for an estimate on replacement needs, timelines, and costs. It is important to have realistic expectations of the life span of your roof. Planning ahead helps you stick to your home improvement goals and timelines.

Perform Routine Roof Maintenance
It’s important to regularly inspect your roof to keep ahead of problems leading to long term damage. Look for missing and damaged shingles along with roof valleys and shingle debris in the gutters (Rogers, 2015). Complete your inspection by looking at the interior side of your roof from the attic or crawl space. Light shining through roof boards and moisture in insulation indicate a leaking roof (Rogers, 2015). Inspect your gutters each season, and remove debris to ensure properly functioning gutters. Prune low-hanging tree branches that come in contact with your roof.
