Getting a new roof is a perfect moment for a homeowner. It is the equivalent of enjoying a new car. Not only does a new roof look great, but it also means security and safety for your household. You know that you are prepared for the storms that come to the New Jersey area. Still, it would be wise to watch out for a few things to get the most out of your roofing system.
At Novalis Roofing and Siding, we want our clients to have many years of supreme roofing protection when we install a roof replacement. Following a few tips can extend the lifespan of your residential roof.
The Value of Regular Inspections
Even a year or two after a new roof, it is recommended to rely on frequent inspections to prevent significant problems. This is especially true after a big weather event such as snowstorms, strong winds, and heavy rainstorms. Homeowners can watch out for many things on their own, such as looking for damaged shingles or damage from tree limbs. However, hiring a professional not only prevents you from serious injuries but also provide you with numerous benefits, including:
- Safety for the homeowner
- Quality that comes with a trained eye
- Ability to catch problems early
- Confidence that the roof is in good shape
Any repairs will likely be minor and inexpensive within the first five years of a roof replacement installation. If you need repairs, check on your warranty to find out if the repairs are covered.
The Importance of Warranty and Insurance Information
With a new roof, you should understand the warranty and what benefits this gives you for the duration of your roof. A good understanding of your home insurance policy is also essential, as some weather events may be covered under your policy.
