With proper maintenance, your roof will protect your home for a long time.
Why it matters: The protection is only as strong as your roof’s weakest parts.
- Roofers use silicone as a final step during install to seal pipes and exposed nails.
- Silicone can break down in 3-5 years.
⏳ Over time nails can work their way out of the decking and tear a small hole in the shingle.
- These “nail pops” can be the source of leaks.
⚙️ A roof tune up involves resealing pipes, finding and sealing nail pops and addressing any vulnerable areas on your roof.
✅ For your Smart Homeowner list
- If your roof is over 3 years old, consider getting a tune up before the rainy season.
