Maintaining Your Roof For Maximum Lifespan


Your roof protects your family and your home from the elements. Over time, this exposure can cause your roof to wear and deteriorate.

Increasing the lifespan of your roof should be a top priority because roof repairs can be costly. With proper roof maintenance, you can avoid this expense and keep your roof looking sharp for years to come.

The lifespan of your roof depends on the material it’s made from, the quality of its construction, its age, and the climate of the area where you live. However, there are some simple things you can do to maintain your roof and increase its longevity.

Inspect your roof

It’s a good idea to get your roof inspected regularly. This will help you to identify any problem areas before they become major issues. If you live in Brisbane, we recommend getting your roof inspected at the end of the summer storm season.


Prune your trees

Another way to help protect your roof is to take care of your trees. Prune back any overhanging branches and make sure your trees aren’t too close to your house.

It’s also important to regularly clean out your gutters and remove debris from your roof. This can help to prevent leaks during a storm.

Paint your roof

Painting your roof can help to prevent it from rusting and so increase its lifespan. Make sure you choose a quality waterproof paint to provide adequate protection. Adding a layer of paint can also help to drastically improve the look of your roof.

Do quality repairs

If your roof needs repairing, make sure you use the highest quality materials as this will help to ensure your repairs last for a long time. You should also choose a reliable roofing company to do your repairs, to ensure quality workmanship.
