Myrtle Beach Roofer: Healthy You, Healthy Roof

By definition, a resolution is a firm decision to do or not to do something. The most common resolution is self-health. Whether you plan on eating better, going to the gym more, drinking less alcohol or getting more exercise, the goal is the same. You should also shoot for a similar goal with your roof. While it may sound weird to talk about the health of an inanimate object, your roof is arguably the most important part of your home. It literally protects everything inside of it, including the lives of those you love and care about. As your trusted Myrtle Beach roofer, Carolina Custom Contractors is here to provide you with a few tips on how to improve the health of your roof in 2019.

Investigate & Repair Leaks

While this may seem like a no-brainer, most of us are procrastinators. We see visible water damage, but either try to pretend like it doesn’t exist or forget to call somebody to come take a look. Other times we may not have the funds for someone to come fix the issue, or maybe not even know who to call. When you see water damage, it’s most likely due to holes in your roof and you should take care of it right away. Stagnant water behind your walls can damage electrical wires and cause mold spores to grow in the insulation. Take care of that now to prevent a larger repair later.

Clean Your Roof

Spring cleaning will be here before we know it, but why wait until then to clean your roof? We live in the Myrtle Beach area, which hardly ever gets snow or icy weather. If you have a ladder and a will to clean off your roof, give it a shot! By removing old branches, leaves and other debris, you are helping to ensure a better water flow off of your roof. Standing water can cause serious damage. The manufacturer of your roof should have roof-cleaning guidelines, so be sure to check out out. And as always, if you do not feel comfortable doing this, call a professional Myrtle Beach roofer like Carolina Custom Contractors.

Plan For A Replacement

Even if you take immaculate care of your roof for years, the time is eventually going to come to replace it. That’s just how it is. If you have an older roofer and you are noticing more and more issues with it, we recommend starting to put money aside for a roof replacement. Roofs are not cheap, however, there are companies like ourselves that offers financing. We do what we can to get you what you need when you need it!
