Whether you’ve inherited an old roof that hasn’t been maintained, or a heavy rainstorm has done a number on your roof this year, all good roofs need repairs from time to time.
No matter the type of roof repair you need, it is critical that you address repairs as soon as you notice them. Neglecting minor issues like roof leak repairs, can lead to major problems in the future.

In order to save money, and avoid a total roof replacement before it’s necessary, we always recommend that our clients address roof repairs as soon as possible.

Preventative Roof Repair
Even the most well cared for roof is going to need a repair from time to time, but the good news is there are steps homeowners can take to keep their roof in great shape for years to come.
1. Keep Nearby Branches Trimmed
Overhanging branches are no friend of your roof.
During high winds, branches can scratch and damage your roof and even pull shingles off entirely. In extreme cases, large branches may even fall on your roof and cause severe damage, leaks, and even injury.
In addition to the damage an actual large branch can cause, overhanging foliage can also cause rotting leaves, moss, and even mold to build up on your roof.
And to make matters worse, branches can become an access point for small rodents to nest and invade your roofing components.
By simply keeping tree branches trimmed so they don’t hang over your home, you can prevent a multitude of roofing issues.
2. Clean Your Gutters
When leaves build up in your gutters, the overflow of water has nowhere to go and can end up pooling on your rooftop.
This backup of moisture can lead to roofing damage and leaks.
Luckily, the solution is simple enough. Keep your gutters clean so that they can do their job properly, and replace old cracked gutters as needed.
A gutter installation or replacement is significantly cheaper than replacing a whole roof!
3. Remove Leaves And Moss
If leaves and moss have built up on top of your home, it’s important to clean them off throughout the year.
Leaves trap moisture as they decompose and can lead to leaks and even weed growth on your roof top.
Similarly, moss also traps moisture. If you catch moss and leaves early enough, you can simply rake or sweep the debris away.
If leaves and moss have been allowed to sit for a long time, you may need to pressure wash or use chemicals to kill the moss growth.
4. Take Action As Soon As You Notice An Issue
If you notice minor damage of any kind, the best thing you can do is address it quickly.
Whether a few missing shingles, a crack in your sheathing, or sun damaged seals, calling for minor repairs will ensure that your roof doesn’t develop large, costly problems down the road.
5. Schedule Regular Inspections
Even if your roof appears to be in good shape, there are a host of problems that can be missed by the untrained eye.
That’s why at Hollister Roofing, we recommend our customers schedule annual roof repair inspections.
