I want to focus on some helpful tips now that fall has arrived. The heat of the summer is gone, BUT I cannot stress enough the importance of a little maintenance this time of year when it comes to your roof!
It’s possible that you could have buckled shingles, dried out caulking, or leaking roof penetrations. The wind may have lifted and moved shingles or blown debris onto your roof. Seams on flat roofs may have failed or drains may have become clogged. With fall and winter approaching, they bring cold weather, higher winds, and blowing leaves and other debris, thereby exposing your roof to additional harm.
As your roof continues to be exposed to nature’s elements, your roof integrity can degrade resulting in damage that can go undetected until it becomes a serious problem. It is good to remember that your roof is protecting one of your most valuable assets-your home or commercial building.
We all have learned that preventive maintenance on our cars and trucks can save us money and make them last longer and the same is also true of our roofs which protect an asset which is far more costly than our vehicles.
I have said it before, but I will again. I recommend having a roof looked at every couple of years and even more if you have one that is exposed to a lot of leaves and debris that can clog drains or otherwise inhibit water removal.
Some of you are able to get up on your roof and do the kind of inspection that can save you a lot of money. Others may be more comfortable having a professional do it. For all you roofing needs, I look forward to hearing from you so please call:
