If you’re wondering whether you should coat your commercial roof, consider these 10 reasons, from GAF:
- Add reflectivity: Coating can extend the life of the roof membrane by protecting it from UV rays and reducing heat that causes thermal expansion and contraction. As long as the current roof is sound, coating can help. Expansion and contraction can lead to cracks, blisters, and split seams over time.
- Energy savings: Coating reduces heat transfer into the building, which reduces air conditioning costs. Dark roofs can reach 150°F, while a cool...

If you’re looking for a new gutter system or add-on gutter protection product, it is important to consider how the installation of the gutter product will affect your roof. Some add-on gutter guard products are installed on top of the roof shingles. This may require penetration of the shingle with a fastener. Products installed under the shingles may require removal and replacement of the shingles or lifting of the shingles in order to install the gutter guard. Both processes may void the existing roof warranty, which causes the homeowner unnecessary risk. Other gutter protection products are not compatible with certain roofing materials, such as metal. Make sure to ask your contractor how the product will affect your roof.

Once the weather in Northeast Ohio begins to reflect the fact that it is spring, it will be time to start performing some home maintenance. One such task is looking for issues with your roof. Snow and ice can be hard on the roof throughout the long winter. If you’re inspecting your roof this spring, look for these potential problems, according to GAF:
Make sure that no tree limbs are touching your roof. Trees or tree limbs that do touch the roof can easily scrape the shingles and loosen the protective granules. Trim trees close to the house to avoid any limbs touching the roof surface.
Leaves and pine needles
A few leaves or pine needles are fine, but if they collect and are deep enough to hold moisture, they should be removed. Anything that traps moisture will cause mildew to form, block gutters, or cause extra weight on the roof.
Cutting back trees and removing leaves will reduce moss growth by allowing more sunlight to hit shady areas whe...
