If you maintain your roof diligently, you will see over time the importance of maintenance. At J&K Roofing, Inc., we perform several roofing maintenance procedures that many homeowners attempt to do on their own. If you do decide to tackle roof maintenance yourself, we’ve included information about the proper ways to take care of these issues. If you’re considering performing your own roofing maintenance in Hollywood, FL, be sure to consider the following:
- Cleaning Gutters: When your gutters are clean, they let water flow off of your roof, through the gutters and out from your home towards a space that won’t affect your foundation. When you neglect to clean your gutters, this can cause roofing problems and even issues with your foundation. With a secure ladder and spotter, you can climb up to your gutters and use gloves, a garden hose and even a garden towel to safely clean your gutters.
- Fixing Broken Shingles or Tiles: Shingles and tiles are not something you should take on fixing yourself. Most commercial and residential roofing in Hollywood is laid in complex patterns, and to lift the broken tile or shingle requires a delicate approach to keep this specialized pattern intact. A roofing expert from J&K Roofing, Inc. can take care of any cracked, broken or missing tiles and shingles on your roof.
- Cleaning a Dirty Roof: It’s actually not so simple to keep a roof clean. Climbing on your slanted roof is dangerous enough, but if it’s also wet, that can be incredibly dangerous for you. One wrong step can cause major roofing damage, or cause you damage as well. Additionally, applying the wrong pressure in the wrong places can harm your roof. The professionals at J&K Roofing can navigate the tricky steps needed to pressure clean your roof.
