4 Most Important Ways to Ensure Your Roof Lasts

Replacing a roof is an expensive enterprise that can run you tens of thousands of dollars, so keeping it in the best possible condition is crucial if you want your roof to last as long as possible. Having a regular roof maintenance schedule can go a long way in protecting your investment and stop you from having to replace it prematurely. Follow these four simple tips to make sure that your roof is always in tip-top shape.

Ensure Your Roof Lasts

1. Get Rid of Leaves and Other Organic Material

Do not let leaves accumulate on your roof. A pile of leaves can clump together and decompose, trapping moisture. If left alone, this moisture can damage your shingles and even create fertile ground for weeds or algae to grow on your roof.

2. Check for Signs of Shingle Damage

Perform a quick visual check, and watch out for any loose or cracked shingles. Being exposed to the elements 24/7, it is not uncommon for some shingles to be damaged. Replace damaged shingles right away to prevent water seepage and rot.

3. Trim Nearby Trees Regularly

Be sure to trim trees that grow too close to your home. Overhanging branches can puncture not only your roof, but also your siding and other parts of your home. During catastrophic weather events like hurricanes, trimming trees becomes even more important as large branches or even entire trees can get blown by strong winds and land on your roof.

4. Get a Professional to Do a Roof Inspection

A professional roof repair inspector can spot potential problems that an untrained homeowner might miss. They can recommend other maintenance tips and also give you a rough idea of how many more years your roof will last. As a general rule, you should have a professional roofer check out your roof every two years.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
