Foam roofs, though not new, are becoming increasingly popular. With rising energy costs and increased efforts to “go green,” homeowners are always looking for ways to save money and make their homes more efficient. Foam roofs can certainly help this. Whether you’re an owner of a foam roof or researching getting one, read on as we discuss a few tips to best maintain your foam roof to have it last the long haul.
4 Tips for Maintaining Your Foam Roof
Though this list is just a start, here are four tips to help maintain your foam roof for a long time:
Regularly Inspect It for Damage
It is a good idea to check your home’s roof for damage at least twice a year. This is best done in the spring and fall when visibility is best. In addition, these times of year prepare the home for winter or help you to see the damage that occurred during the winter months. Be careful when inspecting the roof and be sure to call a professional for any difficult or very high roofs.
Treat Discoloration Immediately
Be sure to treat any discoloration of your roof immediately. This is unfortunately often a sign of a bigger problem, caused many times by unwanted substances on your roof. Act by calling your local roofing contractor immediately upon seeing this.
Keep It Clear
Be sure to remove any debris or extra machinery, such as air conditioning units, from your foam roof, as all of this can cause unnecessary and premature aging to the roof.
It’s a good idea to clean your foam roof regularly, especially after a large storm. This will help ensure fallen leaves, twigs, nests, and other debris cannot harm the foam roof and compromise its structure. If there are no large storms in your area, it might be good to still clean it by sweeping and inspecting it once a year.
