Basic Preventive Measures for Your Roof Maintenance
Tip 1: Clean Your Gutters
Removing the built-up Debris
You may not think about your gutters being a factor in the health of your roof, but the system that drains water away from your home is a crucial part of your home. Leaving major debris to collect can clog your gutters and cause problems with drainage, leading to complications in situations involving rain or snow.
Having an obstructed gutter system during a rainstorm can cause water to pool on your roof, leading to a leaky roof, and, given enough time and exposure, rot can even begin to set in. As with so many things, small problems can quickly escalate into major repair or even replacement costs and are completely avoidable with proper precautions.
Tip 2: Trim trees or bushes around your house
Keep Roof Rubbing To a Minimum
You may not think of your landscaping as a major threat to your roof. All plants, however, have the ability to rub and scratch against the roof surface. Over time, this rubbing can create weak spots in your roof, making it easier for water to get in and heat to escape. You may not even know that this is happening until you are faced with the consequences.
Don’t let this happen to you. Connect with your landscaper to see if they can help mitigate any noticeable rubbing. If you fear that your roof may already be compromised, please don’t hesitate to contact our Austin roof specialists at Reliable Roofing.

Tip 3: Ensure The Attic is Properly Insulated
Maintaining Internal Home Temperatures
Did you know that heat tends to rise to the highest point available? It will if your roof has a significant gap where heat can escape. That means that your internal heating and cooling system will have to work harder to maintain a stable temperature. For you, the homeowner, this translates into increasing electricity bills. You may not even know why your electricity bill is increasing, when in fact it’s your roof’s insulation.
