Although where you live is your home, what provides you with shelter is mostly your roof.
A roof shields you and your family from harsh weather and insulates your home from the heat and cold. Arguably your roof is the most important structure of your home.

That being said, as with every aspect of a home, even the most diligent homeowner who religiously schedules regular inspections and maintenance will eventually have to repair or restore their roof.
When it comes to roof repair, the basics include cleaning, inspections and maintenance.
Your roof, just like your gutters, should be clear of debris. This is especially true if there are many tall trees surrounding your home. The collection of branches and leaves on your roof can potentially pose a major risk to your roof’s structural quality in addition to possibly degrading the roofing material as well.
When organic debris starts to decay, moisture starts to collect and this can cause your roofing structures to rot. Generally, experts recommend that in order to maintain your roof’s optimal life span, it should be cleaned at least twice a year. Likewise the buildup of mold, moss and mildew can negatively affect your roof, so to thoroughly clean your roof, you should contact an experienced roofing professional.
