Here are a few pointers on Roof Care. Following these will help insure your satisfaction.
- Keep gutters, downspouts and roof surfaces clear of fallen leaves, twigs and other litter so that water will drain freely and will not back up.
- Never allow water from a downspout to pour directly onto a roof below; keep the downspout connected to the gutter that drains the lower roof.
Keep trees trimmed to prevent scuffing by branches or damage by falling limbs. Keep climbing roses and vines trimmed back.
Do not walk on roofing or shingles more than necessary. When it is necessary for workmen to go on the roof, care should be taken to avoid damaging the shingles.
Do not allow a large amount snow or ice build accumulate up on the roof or the roofs edge. This can damage the roof or eaves from the sheer weight. The ice can back up under the shingles, or pull the eaves away from the home.
