Your home is one of the biggest investments you can make, so when it comes to protecting the value of that investment, you want to make sure your roof is in top condition. If your roof needs maintenance, repairs, or an inspection, you will need to seek out a trustworthy roofing contractor. When looking for a roofing contractor, it is important to know what the project will entail and whether or not the roofing company is well-suited for the job. Here is a look at some of the services a reputable roofing company may provide.
If you have a warranty on your roof, you may think you are totally covered. However, you shouldn’t skip routine roof maintenance on your commercial or residential roof. Maintenance on a commercial roof is especially critical. Commercial roofing is generally low-slope or flat and is covered in a membrane material to help with shedding water. If left unmaintained, debris can collect on the surface and prevent water from draining properly, causing more costly problems. Maintenance on a residential roof will also prevent little problems from becoming significant, expensive repairs.
A roof inspection is part of proper roof maintenance. It is generally recommended to have your roof inspected two times a year at minimum. But you should use your best judgment and keep in mind the guidelines of your roof’s warranty. If your area sees harsher weathers, drastic temperature changes, or large amounts of rainfall, it may be wise to schedule roofing inspections more frequently. Keep in mind that after a severe weather event, your roof can sustain unexpected damage and need to be inspected sooner. We do not recommend attempting to inspect your roof yourself as it is unsafe, and an untrained eye may not know what repairs need to be made.
Do you have a leaky roof? Did a storm come through and pelt your roof with hail? Is there fallen debris on your roof? These are scenarios we all wish to avoid, but we can’t control Mother Nature. Emergency repairs are often necessary after severe weather when you find your roof has been damaged. Being proactive in the maintenance of your roof can save you money and extend the life of your roof. By making maintenance repairs to small cracks, you can prevent a little problem from becoming a big one.
Roof Restoration or Replacement
Choosing to repair your roof may be the cheaper option, but it is important to know when it is best to do a roofing replacement or restoration, which can end up saving you more money in the long run. There are many factors to consider such as:
- Roof age – Is your roof more than 20 years old?
- Environment – Is your area impacted by frequent severe weather?
- Lack of maintenance – did the previous owners avoid roof maintenance?
- Poor workmanship – was the initial construction done poorly?
Having a knowledgable and trusted roofing expert evaluate your roof’s condition will help you determine the kind of attention your roof needs.
Roofing Insurance Claim Services
Protecting your roof can save you a lot of headaches and money in the event that your roof has been severely damaged. Roofing insurance claims are a very common financial component when it comes to roofing replacements. You will want to choose a roofing company who has good relationships with insurance companies and is experienced in working with them for roofing insurance claims.
