Home generally means “a roof over your head.” The roof is crucial to the home, literally and figuratively. The following advice will help protect your roof and keep water out of vital use to you.
Don’t try to fix your roof in inclement weather. A slippery or wet roof can cause you to fall; this may result in a bad injury or worse. If you want to handle roofing projects on your own, only work when conditions are sunny and dry.
Consider the climate when thinking about roofing.Clay roofs are great in dry climates and can help to keep the home cool. Clay tiles should not be used in wet climates as they will cause your roof to deteriorate quickly. If you aren’t sure, ask a pro.
