Hey there, homeowner! Ever heard that a brand-new roof doesn't need maintenance, or that you can just blast away dirt with a pressure washer? Well, grab your tool belt and join me as we climb the ladder of roofing wisdom. We're about to hammer down some myths and nail the truth, just like we do with those shingles!
Fact: Hold on, cowboy! That pressure washer might blast away the grime, but it can also blast away the granules that are important on an asphalt shingled roof. Pressure washing can work great in certain situations and with certain pressures for certain areas. See how many times I used “certain” well that's because it depends on, so if you have growth or other issues with your shingles, feel free to get an inspection because it could be part of a bigger problem.
Fact: More is merrier, right? Not always! Over-insulating can lead to moisture issues and decreased ventilation. Learn more about proper insulation in our insulation guide.
Fact: A new roof is like a new car; it still requires regular check-ups. Refer to our maintenance guide.\
Fact: Waiting for a leak is like waiting for your cake to bake without preheating the oven. Learn about the early signs of a leaky roof.
