People are more likely to neglect their roof more than any other home maintenance. It may be because it’s not something they look at every single day. Some people never look at their roof until it starts to leak or someone brings attention to it. What’s a shame is that most of the problems that occur with roofs can be solved way before they cause huge issues. Keep reading to find out how you can save a lot of money now and for many years to come.
An Example You Need to Know About
Let’s take the situation of algae – gloeocapsa magma. Algae often starts to appear on the north side of a roof because it’s the perfect area without a lot of sun and just a bit of moisture. As the algae grows without removal, it takes over the whole roof. This algae seeps into the shingles and deteriorates them. As the shingles deteriorate, so does the integrity of your roof. Regular roof cleanings, which is only about $300 to $400 depending on the size of the roof, can help you avoid major damage caused by algea.
This is not the only problem that can go from small repair costs to being totally unaffordable. Many other problems can arise that could quickly deplete your bank accounts. The average cost of an asphalt shingle roof installation in Boise, Idaho is $212.10 per 100 square foot. For a tile roof, it’s $984.75 per square foot. The cost continues to increase as you get into metal and slate. This is why regular roof maintenance is essential and inspections to repair any roof problems is crucial.
