Asphalt roofs are a popular option for their affordable price. However, they have a shorter life span than most other roofing materials. For this reason, you need to properly maintain your roof. With regular maintenance, you’ll be able to spot problems before they become expensive leaks. Check out these four tips for maintaining your asphalt roof.

1. Kill and Remove Moss

Plant matter may occasionally collect on your roof, but unless you have a lot of windstorms or overhanging branches, most of it is washed away with the rain.

It usually starts growing around the edges of shingles, but as the moss continues to thrive, it may lift the shingles, which exposes the roof to rot and leaks.
