4 Things New Homeowners Should Know About Their Roof

Many new homeowners assume that because their home passed inspection during the sale process, the roof is fine and doesn’t need any further attention. This may or may not be true. But it’s always important to know as much as you can about your roof to ensure peak performance.

New homeowners should follow these tips to get ready in the event that problems arise with the roof.

Have your roof inspected

The home inspector doesn’t always climb up to inspect the roof closely, so potential problems may be overlooked. The wisest course of action is to purchase Mr. Moose’s Roof Maintenance Plan, formerly our Extended Service Plan from the experienced Columbus roofing contractors at Muth & Company Roofing. They will take a closer look at your roof and advise you of any roof repairs or upgrades that you should do.

Enroll in a care and maintenance program

Taking care of problems when they are small will keep those problems from becoming big. For a very reasonable annual fee, Muth & Company offers Mr. Moose’s Roof Maintenance Plan. Every year, we will contact you to schedule a complete roof inspection and check-up. What better way to start off life in your new home than with the peace of mind that comes from knowing your home and belongings are protected?

Understand all shingles are not created equal

Basic 3-tab roof shingles work well if you are on a budget, but they are not your only option. Designer shingles combine style and function. And the design of specialty shingles is for a specific purpose, such as impact resistance or energy efficiency. Educate yourself on the different types of roofing materials available so you’ll be able to pick the right one for you.

Be able to know trouble spots

There are certain points on a roof that are more apt to leak, such as around flashings, gutters and skylights. Your trusted Columbus roofer will teach you what to keep an eye out for to prevent those leaks.
