Every homeowner wants their roof to last as long as possible. Unfortunately, there are some common mistakes homeowners make that can shorten the lifespan of the roof. Read on as Gutter Helmet® Systems of Alabama, premier gutter company and recipient of rave Gutter Helmet® reviews, highlights these errors.

1. Not Trimming Nearby Trees. Large tree branches that grow too close to your roof can scratch and even crash against your roof during a storm, leaving dents where rainwater can leak in. To keep your roof in good shape and protect your home from extensive water damage, make sure to prune any encroaching trees.

2. Lack of Regular Maintenance. Make sure to schedule regular inspection and maintenance services from a trusted local contractor. This way, you can effectively head off possible issues that could negatively affect the lifespan and performance of your roof.

3. Poor Ventilation. Insufficient venting in the attic can result in high levels of humidity, which not only encourage mold and rot in the roof structure, but can also damage the shingles above. Deal with poor ventilation promptly to help your roof last as long as possible.

4. Not Investing in Gutter Protection. Gutters support your roofing system by diverting rainwater that lands on the roof safely away from your home. Leaves and other loose debris that land in your gutters can cause congestion. When water backs up inside the system due to this blockage, it may end up flowing back under the shingles, creating leaks. The best and easiest way to prevent this is to invest in quality gutter protection like Gutter Helmet. This innovative product features a patented nose-forward design that ensures only water enters the gutters–everything else, such as leaves, pine needles and other loose debris is filtered out. By preventing clogs, Gutter Helmet helps extend the lifespan of your roof.
