Residential Roof Maintenance

Roof maintenance isn’t just about keeping your old roof alive. It’s about addressing issues before they become problems to stretch the lifespan of your roof long into the future.

Roof Maintenance

Why is roof maintenance such a big deal? Your roof is under warranty, right? Look no farther than the fine print of your warranty to find your reason: extreme weather, the impact of tradesmen working up there, and pests are not covered. The workmanship of installation and the materials that make up your roof are warrantied, not everything else that quietly happens to it over the years.

Whether or not you can tell from the ground looking up, your roof is gradually impacted by the stresses it endures. And every component that isn’t disposable requires maintenance on schedule to perform its duty for as long as possible until eventual replacement.


Roof maintenance is about grabbing the bull by the horns and managing the changes that occur to your roof over time before they develop into problems. The first step is establishing awareness of what needs to be maintained and when. Professional inspection is the best tool to do that.

17 Point Inspection — $139 ($119 if prepaid)

Perfect for homeowners and soon-to-be home sellers who want to get the lay of the land from an expert point of view. Typically a one-hour site visit, an expedient analysis leaves you with the insight needed to make important decisions for your home.

Comprehensive Inspection — $259

If you think there’s a problem with your roof, or it’s recently received work performed of questionable quality, it might be time to dig into the details and build an understanding of your roof from the inside out. Whether narrowly focused on a specific problem or broadly encompassing all of the elements of your roof as a system, a comprehensive inspection begins with a statement of purpose, works through a list of components that pertain to it, and ends with photographs, notes and specific solutions that address the discovery. Typically a 1-2 hour process on-site, and the same in the office to produce the report.
