How to Preserve Your Roof’s Charm

By Stacy Mellete

As one of the most noticeable features of your home, your roof needs to remain intact and aesthetically appealing. This exterior component is also an important design element that can make or break your home’s look. Pay attention to your roof to avoid compromising curb appeal.

Affordable Roofing Systems, a premier residential commercial roofing contractor in the area, shares some tips on keeping your roof aesthetically appealing.

Common Aesthetic Problems

Your roof is a prominent part of your home, which makes it harder to hide its defects. Missing, loose and damaged shingles, for instance, are highly visible even from the ground. This won’t only detract from your home’s beauty; it can cause leaks, which can cause structural damage.

Apart from shingle damage, black molds and streaks can also affect your roof’s appearance. This a cosmetic issue that homeowners with asphalt roofing shingles often have to address right away.


To keep your residential roofing system in good shape, schedule residential roof repairs with your local contractor. They will conduct a thorough inspection to detect issues that affect your roof’s appearance and performance. They will also replace damaged shingles, patch holes and address other aesthetic concerns.

Note, however, that some roofing problems can’t be fixed by mere repair. Your roofer may suggest a replacement to avoid more issues.


A few missing shingles aren’t a big deal since your roofer can easily replace them, but when the system starts to look like a checkerboard, you may want to consider a replacement.

Tearing off your old roofing materials may also be necessary if there’s chronic curling of shingles. Remember to choose a new roofing system that can match your home’s overall theme.

Its color and design should seamlessly complement your entire exterior to create a harmonious design.
