As your roofing contractors will tell you, it’s important that you conduct proper maintenance on your roof. After all, it’s one of your home’s first line of defense so keeping it in shape can benefit you and your home in the long run. With that in mind, you can perform either reactive and proactive maintenance. Some homeowners make the mistake of thinking reactive is better than proactive. However, there are actually reasons why the opposite is true.
Typically, reactive maintenance means that unexpected work will be performed only when a critical defect is discovered. Some homeowners prefer to go this route, only calling roof repair contractors when the immediate threat of water intrusion is apparent. While there’s nothing bad about reactive maintenance, it’s just that a sudden repair can cost you a significant amount that you weren’t prepared to pay.
Proactive maintenance, on the other hand, involves managing your roof with periodic inspections and scheduled repairs. This will allow you to anticipate problems that can occur in your roofing system and compromise your home’s interior. The slightest delay in roof repairs can cost you a significant amount to rectify and can also cause mold and mildew problems that can be hazardous to your household’s health. Aside from that, it can also net you higher energy costs. Therefore, proactive maintenance can give you an estimated time on when you should get your roof repaired or replaced, which in turn prevents any sudden surprises when it comes to your roof.
