Roof Protection is needed but should be done right!

Over time the roof over your home will erode. Snow, wind, rain, sunlight etc., all act in an erosive way. You need to make sure that you are maintaining your roof, which does require proper roof protection. Keep in mind that the wrong maintenance on your roof could hurt it more than help it. If you are choosing to go the DIY route, here are a few things that you should think about before you do: 

Gutters and Drains: Need cleaned Properly

If you do not clean your gutters and drains, you will find a buildup of materials that can cause pooling in the gutter. Having these types of clogs can cause damage to the structural integrity over time. 

If you are not trimming the trees that stretch over your roof surface, you need to! 

Trees can make a real mess when left overhanging a roof. Branches, leaves, bird droppings, etc. can fall on your roof and should be cleaned off the roof at least twice a year. 

DIY Roof Protection: Repair and Installation- Avoid unless you know exactly what you are doing

The do it yourself approach with installation or repair only makes sense if you know exactly what you are doing. If you do not really know what you are doing, you could end up causing more harm than good. It is best to contact a professional.
