Gutters Extend Roof Life Part 1: Proper Maintenance is Key

Your roofing in Dunedin FL (or if you’re living in any part of Pinellas County) probably needs some patching up after summer as the area experienced significant rainfall. The combination of hot temperatures in the morning and the frequent rain in the afternoon could significantly shorten your roof’s lifespan. This time is the perfect opportunity to get your roof repairs done.

The average lifespan of a roof is about 20 years. This may vary depending on the roofing materials used and regularity of maintenance. Certain metal materials, as well as clay and slate will last longer than your typical shingle roof.

Proper roof maintenance is the key. We recommend cleaning your roof at least once a year and inspecting twice a year for leaks and other damage.

Dunedin FL roofers at Arry’s Roofing, suggest to always keep your gutters clean. Your gutters carry rainwater away from your home so you should always keep them clean and clog-free. The frequency of cleaning gutters depends on your environment. If you live in an area that has grown trees, it is best to de-clog three or four times a year to keep your gutters free from debris.

In light of this, here are some tips on cleaning and repairing gutters.
