Proper maintenance involves conducting bi-annual cleanings/inspections. These inspections/gutter cleanings are performed before and after every winter. It is also advisable to perform additional roof inspections after periods of severe weather.
Before any roof maintenance program is begun it is necessary to verify that the attic is properly ventilated. Such an oversight can only lead to unnecessarily premature damage to you roofing system. This inspection should always be performed by a licensed professional roofing contractor that is experienced with your roofing material of choice.
