Don't Make these 5 Roofing Mistakes

Your Lake of the Ozarks roof is a long term investment and you'll want to ensure that you take your roofing maintenance seriously. With that being said, it's easy to make mistakes when it comes to caring for your roof. If you have a brand new roof especially, caring for your roof should be a top priority. Today, our Lake of the Ozarks roofing company has 5 common mistakes that people make when it comes to their roof. 

Mistake #1: Power Washing Your Roof

Keeping your roof clean is an important part of roof maintenance. It's important to keep your roof free of debris, algae, moss, etc., as these things can cause damage to your roof. Unfortunately, power washing isn't the best way to accomplish that. Too high of a water pressure can actually cause damage to your roof, forcing water up under the shingles that can then make its way into your home.

Mistake #2: Walking on Your Roof 

Walking on your roof is an easy way to damage your roof. Lake of the Ozarks roofing professionals know how to properly work on your roof without causing damage, but the average Joe usually does not. Not only is climbing on your roof dangerous but when attempting to look for damage, you're likely to create other problems or issues.

Mistake #3: Lifting Shingles to Check for Damage 

When it comes to roof damage, it's best to leave it to the professionals. Getting on your roof to look for damage yourself can cause the problem to become worse. Lifting shingles to look for damage under them is one of the worst things you can do. You're likely to damage those shingles by moving them, which can create another entry spot for water to infiltrate your home.

Mistake #4: Not Cleaning Gutters

While it may not take a professional to clean out your gutters, it does take diligence. One of the biggest mistakes people make in regard to their roof is failing to clean out the gutters regularly. Clogged gutters can lead to a variety of roofing problems. The simple act of regularly cleaning out your gutters can prevent major roofing issues from affecting your home.

Mistake #5: Not Trimming Trees

Whether you choose to hire a professional tree trimmer or you do it yourself, it's important to trim back your trees. Falling branches and other debris can easily damage your roof. Gutter cleaning and tree trimming are two of the easiest things you can do to protect your roof from possible damage. Preventing damage is much less costly than repairing damage to your roof.
