Winter Is Coming: Tips For Maintaining Your Rooftop

Prevent Exposure to Moisture

Moisture is like roof cancer. If your roof has any shady areas or there is an overhead water tank on your roof then make sure that the space under that tank is dry. You could either ask a roofing expert to add a layer of tar coal or any other water repellent below that part. Also, make sure that there is a proper sewage system to avoid any stagnant water on the roof.

Make sure there are no Debris/Granular Issues

Small debris and twigs on the roof are the symptoms of decay. It is the gateway that leads to the wear of roofing material. So if you wish to safeguard the integrity of your roof make sure to have a quick scan of your roof for debris and twigs. It is also a healthy habit to trim the trees in your compound. Not only it helps in their growth but also gives an attractive look to your backyard.


If your roof has a window for ventilation, you need to take a closer look around the area. If you feel that there is an issue with the ventilation system, or in the flow of air through the ventilation system, then check the roof. The area around the roof accumulates a lot of moisture that rots the wood and metal around the area. This is not healthy for you. Firstly, the air quality is compromised and secondly, it deteriorates the frame of the air ventilation on the roof.

All these tips ensure that your rooftop remains to the best of its health and stay that way for long.
