Check for Damages Periodically
More homeowners need to take ownership of their roof’s health. Checking your roof goes a long way towards getting the most out of it. If you live in an area known for inclement weather, Regions recommends that you check your roof after every big storm in your area.
Even if you don’t have hail and snowstorms, the Sun’s UV radiation damages your roof’s tiles over time. So, always be on the lookout for what’s going on up there. Whether you’re going up on the roof yourself or inspecting it from below with binoculars, we’ll tell you what you need to look out for to ensure your roof stays healthy.
Follow Up Your Roof Check with a Professional Inspection
Want to know what else keeps your roof in tip-top shape? Professional help! Checking for roof damage by yourself could uncover a lot of issues. However, experienced and fully licensed roofers can easily spot problems that would go unnoticed by you and most homeowners nationwide.
In addition to spotting these “hidden” issues, a professional inspection helps you address your roof’s problems early on. Nipping roofing concerns in the bud is far better than letting them turn into bigger, more expensive problems down the line. If you’re in dire need of an inspection, click this link.

Only Use Licensed, Qualified Roofers
To extend your roof’s longevity, you should only let experts care for it. We’ve already told you what to look for in a good roofer. So, it’s time to put it to use. Working with quality roofers is usually a safe bet. However, there are a few things you’ve got to do.
Make sure you always ask your prospective roofers for proof of insurance. Also, ask if they have any customer testimonials that you can view. If your roofer does a lot of business in your area, ask around to hear what their customers have to say about them.
In addition to those things. Always go for a roofer who is communicative and transparent. Are they honest enough to admit they don’t know something? Do they get back to you quickly with the information you’ve requested? When it’s all said and done, you want a clear line of communication with a competent roofer who cares about your roof and your concerns.

Clean Your Gutters
At Regions, we tell our customers, “You’re not taking care of your roof if you’re not taking care of your gutters.” We say this for several reasons. One of the biggest threats to your roof’s longevity is moisture buildup.
If your roof’s gutters are blocked, it means that water that should be drained stays on the roof. This water then seeps into your home and compromises your roof but your home’s walls, ceilings, and insulation. So, always clean out your gutters and remove other objects on your roof that trap moisture like leaves.
Take care of your attic
Did you know that proper attic insulation does more than lower your power bill? In fact, it can help preserve your roof as well. Poorly ventilated attics can overheat. Over time, the excess heat increases the rate at which your roof’s shingles decay.
In addition to having enough insulation, your attic needs to be well ventilated. Make sure that all of your attic’s vents that lead to outside are clear! Blocked vents contribute to moisture buildup which leads to roof damage. As licensed full-service contractors, you can trust Regions to take a lot at your attic any time.
