How often should I have maintenance work done on my roof?
You should have your roof checked every year. Annual inspections are free on roofs that Doyle Roof Master installs. On average most roofs will require some minor sealing to the walls and penetrations every two years or so.
It is by far less expensive to do seasonal maintenance on your roof, than to prematurely replace your roof.
Is there anything I can do to prolong the life of my roof?
Cleaning gutters of leaves and keeping branches off of your roof will help. Doyle Roof Masters has years of experience maintaining roofs and will be happy to advise you on what you can do.
What can I do to minimize leak damage?
You can minimize water damage by making some small holes in the sheetrock in the leaking area. Use a small screw driver, ice pick or knife. This will let the water pass through and help keep it from soaking in. **Only make holes where there is actually water coming through. Don’t do it if your ceiling is only stained.
Take care this area is not near any electrical lines, lights, etc. We do not recommend this method if the ceilings are wood or plaster.
