What NOT To Do On Your Roof

It might seem obvious to most but here are a couple things involving your roof to most definitely avoid:

  • Using your roof as a diving board for a pool or trampoline
  • Using your roof as a launching pad for skateboards or rockets

While these activities might seem like fun, they can be exponentially dangerous and cause extreme bodily harm.

Here are some things to avoid that might not be as obvious:

  • Pressure washing your roof. While this may seem like a good idea at the time, during a semi-annual inspection, you may notice a lot of grime and dirt coating your roof - DON'T DO IT! When you pressure wash roof shingles, the powerful spray actually blasts away all the granules that help protect your roof from leaks.
  • Lifting roof shingles to look for leaks. This will only cause more damage and create leaks where there were none before.
  • Walking around on the roof. Roofs are generally sloped and the shingles can get very slippery especially when wet. Besides the obvious threat of falling off, you can do a lot of damage to the shingles themselves simply by walking on them. This may remove the granules on the shingles, loosen the shingles, and create leaks.

Should you Replace Your Roof or Just Patch It?

This is an important question to consider because it can save or cost you a lot of money. If a replacement is necessary, will you need a partial or complete reroofing job? Also, will you build over your existing roof or remove the old one completely? If the damage is only affecting a few shingles then you are most likely better off just replacing those certain shingles with similarly coloured ones. Or, if the damage is isolated to mostly one side or area, a reroof might be possible simply in that area. If you are planning to stay in your home for many years to come it might be wise to consider an entire roof rebuild even if only parts of it are damaged, especially if it's nearing the end of its lifespan.
