The phrase “putting a roof over your head” is rarely taken literally but for homeowners, it can be quite relevant. After all, the right roofing system can save money on energy costs and protect a house from weather damage, while also reducing its environmental footprint.

Any change in season is a good time to evaluate a roof’s performance and repair needs. Making an assessment in late summer or early fall means there is time to tackle projects before the winter weather arrives, and optimal visibility thanks to more sunshine and longer days.

A shingled roof can last more than 20 years, but ensuring its longevity involves maintenance and repair. Keep in mind, spending a few hundred dollars to repair a roof can prolong its life and help avoid bigger repairs down the road. It’s also important to remember when replacing roofing shingles that the material is recyclable. Each year, millions of tons of recyclable shingles are removed in the U.S. and many are sent to landfills.

Here are some tips and tools for a successful and eco-minded roof repair.
