Homeowners It’s Time for A Residential Shingle Roof Tune-Up!

Homeowners It’s Time for A Residential Shingle Roof Tune-Up!

As the owner of a roofing company, it pains me every time I visit a customer’s home and find rampant problems with their shingle roof – all of which could have been prevented with routine flat roof maintenance. I know, I know – most homeowners think roof maintenance is a scam put on by roofers. What maintenance could a shingle roof possibly need after it’s installed? I’ve heard this for more than a decade from homeowners all over Chicagoland. And you know what? My answer is always exactly the same. It needs quite a bit of maintenance if you want it to last as advertised.

A shingle roof should be given a tune-up by licensed and insured professionals twice a year – or at least once a year of twice is out of the question. But why is it so important, you ask? That’s simple. Flat roofing is made up of panels joined together to firm a solid, cohesive system. If any seams, any joints, any part of the system breaks down and you’re in for a lot of issues. And those issues have high costs associated.
