3 Expert Roofing Tips To Make Your Residential Roof Last Longer

 

Repairing issues for your roof here and there can be affordable but constantly having to repair it can dig quite a bit into your pockets. Replacing the roof of your home isn’t exactly the most affordable project, it is often something that one would have to save up for or hope that your insurance comes through to save the day. All in all, roofing work isn’t cheap. You want a residential roof that will last you a long time without having to invest major sums of money just to keep it in working order.

We, at Home Genius Exteriors, have been tending to the roofing of homeowners across the Pittsburgh area for years. We know and understand how to keep your roof looking great for years without breaking the bank.

 

These are some of our expert roofing tips on how to make your roof last longer:

Inspections

The best and easiest way to make your roof last longer is by conducting an inspection on your roof. There are two ways that you can do this, either by having a go at inspecting the roof yourself or by hiring a trusted roofing company to inspect your roof for you. When inspecting your roof yourself, you’ll be able to notice major, visible damages to your roof. But you might miss certain issues that are only visible to the trained eye. Trained roofing professionals know what to look for and know when something minor has the potential to turn into a major problem. At Home Genius Exteriors, we perform professional and efficient roofing inspections so that should there be any problems, we can get to work on fixing the problem immediately.

 

Repair Issues Quickly

If you or your roofing inspector notice that there is in fact some repair work that needs to be done to your roof, it is best to get to work on it immediately. What might look like a minor issue now can quite possibly turn into a major roofing issue in the future, one that can compromise the integrity of your roofing structures or even your home. Also, be sure to work with a professional team of roofers because asking someone with no roofing experience will most likely make the situation much worse.

 

Avoid Power Washing Shingles

Power washing your roof might sound like a quick and easy way to get rid of dirt and debris on your roof but what’s easy isn’t always the best option. Power washing your roof can remove the protective granules from your asphalt shingle roof, it can loosen shakes and shingles as well as remove the top coatings of many roofing materials. To clean your roof, rather use something like a leaf blower, broom or you can opt to manually remove the dirt and debris from your roof.

“I’m very impressed with Home Genius Exteriors. From the sales opportunity, to ordering, and finally execution everything was smooth sailing. Rob, who sold us our roof, was educated on the product and process. He answered all my detailed questions with patience. A special comment must be left for our Project Manager, Mike, who went above and beyond in every way. He was always available, answers all our questions, thoroughly reviewed the work was done, and even let us know that he is available after the project with any questions. You can tell he truly takes pride in his work. I have worked with others, and so has my family, and I’ll tell you right now we’re sticking with Home Genius Exteriors for all future projects due to Mike’s customer service. Highly recommended company to work with! Our roof is gorgeous.”

The crew that represent the company ( Buddy, Alex, Tim, Pablo, and the crew) are the greatest persons I've met. Very professional, pleasant, respectful, and they show up on time, they all take their time to explain all my questions/concerns and show me every step of the project.

“Home Genius Exteriors replaced my entire roof and they were absolutely amazing. They were professional, did quality work, and had great customer service. We had missing shingles and Home Genius was able to complete our roof in less than a week from the estimate! Melissa did the estimate and was very knowledgeable and helped us make the best decision for our home. Casey was the project manager and she communicated all the information we needed, was on top of everything with the project, and was even helping clean up after the work was complete to make sure the yard was safe for my kids. Would definitely recommend Home Genius 10/10 they went the extra mile!”

“Excellent service from start to finish! The inspector was highly knowledgeable about roofing and other specialties. They were able to provide multiple quotes for my roof, gutters, windows, and siding almost instantly after the inspection. The communication from the project manager and others were superb during the job. Quality and service worth every penny! As a contractor myself, I highly recommend this company.”

“Casey is amazing and totally sold me on my new roof. She covered all bases with her knowledge of each aspect of the job and really made me feel at ease. The crew worked quickly and got the job done over two days. Minor cosmetic concerns were promptly dealt with. All in all I can’t really complain and they will see more business from me in the future!”
