We’re On Top Of It
All roofs are vulnerable to problems that can lead to leaks. Extreme weather such as tornadoes, hail, snow, seasonal freezes and downed trees can damage your roof. By the time you start noticing ceiling stains and water damage inside of your property, the damage will have already occurred.
Water leakage compromises the structure of buildings, and it can even destroy equipment within your home. This is why you need professionals to repair your roof the right way.
Get Your Roof Repaired
The roof is one of the most important parts of a building. When it deteriorates over time or ends up damaged, the result can be serious damage to the interior structures of the building.
Your roof, soffits, gutter system, and related parts of the building should be regularly inspected and maintained. If a problem is found, the roof should be repaired as soon as possible.
Warm, dry weather is the best time for construction or building repair to occur. Some processes simply don’t set up well if they stay wet or get too cold. This is why spring and summer are the busy seasons for our industry.
When it is too humid, too rainy, or too cold, this can interfere with important chemical processes involved in paint drying, concrete hardening, adhesive attaching and so forth.
Although there are some products and processes that can adjust to extreme temperatures or excess moisture, it is simply easier and more reliable to tackle your roofing projects during warm weather.
But don’t hesitate to call us in the off-season if you find yourself in an emergency – if anything we’ll need to reschedule due to inclement weather.
SIGNS YOU NEED ROOF REPAIR
When it comes to roof repair, there are some signs that are difficult to spot without a trained eye. Helping you find those hidden problems is exactly why we offer free roof inspections.
However, some signs are relatively easy to spot, even if you aren’t a professional roofer. Here are some of the most common ones.
Cracked, curled, cupped, or missing shingles
One of the signs that your roof is in need of repair is shingle damage. Whether entire sections of shingles are missing or damaged, or you’re starting to see cupping (shingles lifting up in the middle) or curling (shingles lifting in the corners), water damage isn’t far off.
Leaks in your attic
Granules from asphalt shingles in the gutter
When asphalt shingles start to wear out, granules fall off and often collect in your gutters. If you notice this, it may be time to get a roof inspection and a professional opinion.
Higher energy bills
This one is a little more difficult to detect since there are so many factors (usage, company raising rates, etc.). But if you’re starting to see an increase in your electricity bill, poor ventilation could be the cause.
