How much do you think a new roof for your home would cost? If you have been through the experience, you probably shudder at the thought. For your average size home, the cost can range between 8,000 and 21,000 depending on what type of roofing material you choose, so that should be a great incentive to take good care of the roof you have. While a roof in good repair might not be as cool as a car that costs about the same, the investment is still the same. Protecting your roof is going to focus mainly on keeping it clean and easing the impact the elements have on it.

Branches and leaves that collect on your roof are going to encourage mold growth as well as many other water-related issues. It is in your best interest to make sure that your roof is cleaned off regularly. You should also make sure that your gutters and downspouts work correctly so that you won’t have water backing up from a blocked gutter.
