    4 Steps You Can Take to Keep Your Roof in Good Repair

    Last updated 5 years ago

    You’ll get the most out of your roof when it’s in good repair. Your home will be better protected, your roof will last longer without having to be replaced, and you might even see some energy savings. Here are some simple steps you can take to keep your roof in good repair:

    1. Check It Out After Storms
    Detecting problems early is one of the best ways to keep your roof in good condition. That’s why it’s important to perform a quick inspection of your roof after events that may have damaged it. In the aftermath of a heavy rain, hailstorm, or windstorm, look for damaged shingles and downed tree branches that landed on your roof. If you notice damage, call a roofer to help you out.

    2. Have Problems Fixed Immediately
    Roofing problems become worse over time, so make sure you have any problems worked on as soon as you notice them. A patch of missing shingles or detached flashing can quickly lead to a roof leak, which can be a much more expensive repair to make than fixing shingles or flashing.

    3. Have Your Roof Professionally Inspected
    An annual inspection will extend the life of your roof. Professionals can detect early signs of problems and repair them before they become serious. A professional roofer can also provide suggestions and solutions for improving your roof’s energy efficiency.

    4. Mitigate Possible Sources of Damage
    It’s a good idea to remove branches hanging within striking distance of your roof. These can cause serious damage to your roofing system or windows under the right conditions.

    At Fortress Roofing, we’re here to help your roof do its job. Our reroofing, shingle replacement, and roof inspection services are designed to provide you with a roofing system that lasts year after year. Contact us at (385) 282-6976 for more information about our Salt Lake City services.

    Examining Different Roof Types

    Last updated 5 years ago

    Roofs perform differently under various weather conditions. For example, a gable roof is one of the most common types of roofs. This roof type consists of a basic rectangular shape that forms a peak at the center of the house. These A-shaped roofs need to be installed correctly in order to withstand high winds. Hip roofs, on the other hand, generally do a better job of resisting high winds and are characterized by several different peaks and planes. Watch this video for more information about these two roof types.

    Whichever type of roof you have, Fortress Roofing can help you maintain it. We offer roof and shingle repair and replacement services in Salt Lake City. Give us a call at (385) 282-6976 for more information.
