Maintaining a house of worship takes a special person. Your efforts make it all possible for the rest of us to have a place to pray, and for that, we thank you. I am going to do my part and share with you some easy church roof maintenance tips to remember for this winter season.
1. The first thing you need to do when maintaining your church’s roof is to ensure that there is a regular church roof maintenance plan in place. After any significant snowfalls this season, at the very least, do a visual inspection of the interior and exterior of the roof.
2. Don’t let small issues become big ones if you see a cracked tile on your churches roof or even a tiny leak, address it right away to make sure that small problem does not become a more significant issue because you can bet they will. Church roofs, in particular, are famous for minor issues becoming very large pretty quickly, usually because of the unique nature and slope of their roofs. It is so important to take care of any problems your church’s roof has right away. You do not want to be one of those churches that have to call an emergency roof repair company on Saturday night so that churchgoers on Sunday don’t get rained on during the sermon!
3. Keep your gutters clean! Cluttered gutters will cause the build-up of water or snowmelt, which will increase the strain of your gutter system against your church’s roof. This strain will inevitably lead to the system pulling away from the church’s roof, which is an awful way to jeopardize the integrity of your church’s roof. This will also cause rainwater to flow into the holes opened by the pulling gutter system, which can cause damaging leaks in your church’s roof.
