Your Fall Eaves trough Maintenance Checklist

 

There are other components to your roof besides the shingles that lay on top. Although they are the most integral part, it is essential that other parts of the roofing system are kept in just as good of shape. Without this, the shingles’ lifespan will be cut short. Why not save yourself some stress, and cash, by keeping up to date with your eaves trough maintenance?

The gutter system of a roof can arguably be almost as important as the shingles themselves. It plays a crucial role in directing water away from your home. Without a proper gutter system, water and snow that sits atop your roof will eventually make its way into your foundation. You’ll begin to see stains and cracks on the inside of your walls, and eventually, a flooded basement. What’s the best way to avoid this? Keep up with your eaves trough maintenance.

Although it may be a nuisance, maintaining your gutter system is important for every homeowner. Making sure they are properly connected, directed and cleaned every season will extend the overall life of your roof.

This blog entry will discuss the necessary steps of eaves trough maintenance that every homeowner should follow.

 

  1. Clean, Clean, Clean!

Frequently clearing your gutters of leaves, sticks and other debris will keep your gutter system in tip-top shape. Once there is enough debris build up, the water entering the gutters will not be able to drain properly. It will overflow, allowing the water to run down your exterior walls and eventually into your home.

To prevent any overflow, Professional Roofers recommends a proper eaves trough cleaning at least once a season. However, during the fall months, the more frequent you can get up there, the better. Not only does a regular cleaning keep the system working, but it makes the job easier for next time. A clean eaves trough also reduces the risk of mold or moss to be present.

This DIY task can be very simple with a helper – someone who will hold and secure the ladder for you. Once you remove the debris, have your helper hand you a hose. Running a stream of water through the system helps ensure everything has been removed. This will also show you if there are any holes that will need to be re-sealed.

If you don’t feel comfortable doing the job yourself, you can always contact one of Torontos roofing companies to assist you. Not only can they provide you with the maintenance you need, but their professional eye may catch any problems that are not obvious to you.

  1. Install New Gutter Guards

Properly installed and functioning gutter guards can make your life a lot easier in the future. Gutter guards act like filters that sit over your troughs. They guide leaves and other debris away so that water can properly drain from your roof.  This is not to say that you will no longer have to clean your eaves troughs – but it makes the process a lot easier for when you do.

Gutter guards are a worth-while investment when considering the time and money you will save in the future. Get in touch with a roofing company to see if gutters guards are a good fit for your home. It never hurts to ask.

 

  1. Re-secure Pieces

An extensive build-up of debris can become very heavy. In fact, this much weight can actually separate the gutters from the fascia of your home. This leaves room for water to seep between the two components and drip down the exterior of your home as if you had no eaves troughs to begin with. Not only will this cause damage the foundation, but also to the siding and brick exterior of your home.

Always ensure the sections of your gutter system are properly connected to allow maximum drainage. You’ll need this when the winter season arrives and the water begins to freeze. Water that is stuck in the trough or that has escaped down the wall will quickly turn to ice. This ice will quickly expand and cause significant damage. Neglecting your eaves trough maintenance just isn’t worth the amount of repairs you’ll need come the Spring time.

 

  1. Seal the Joints

If your gutters are leaking at the corners, you will need to re-seal the joints. This should be done periodically so that water can properly travel through the system and away from your home. This can be done with a silicone sealant around the joints and over any cracks. Once applied, ensure the sealant is flat and allows the water to flow through smoothly. You can also hire an eaves trough and aluminum expert to do the work for you seasonally. This is a simple maintenance task that will make all the difference!

 

Resealing the joints

 

If your eaves troughs are showing significant signs of aging or damage, it may be worth it just to replace the whole system. A failing gutter system is not something that you want to deal with in the chilly winter months.

Installing a new eaves trough and downspout system will divert water and snow a safe distance away from your homes foundation. This will prevent your yard from gathering ice, flooding and will protect your roof from water damage. It will also save you the headache of having to deal with it the following year.

Most companies will visit your property free of charge and provide you with a replacement quote. Book now and start planning your eaves trough maintenance while you still can.

Should I Replace My Shingles Before Winter?

Winter is coming!

As soon as November 1st comes around, everyone has winter on their minds. Homeowners begin to assess their property and decide what needs to be done before the snow starts falling. For most, roof maintenance becomes a top priority.  The integrity of your home depends on proper roof maintenance and keeping up to date with repairs and replacements.  It is important to assess your roof and have any necessary work done before the winter season hits – bringing the rain, snow and hail along for the ride.

Most homeowners find the process of maintaining their roof to be stressful, and well, a bit frightening. You want to make sure it is done right the first time and because most homeowners aren’t familiar with the process, the work is often put off until the following year.

This blog will outline and help homeowners understand the importance of a roofs condition during the winter season. It will also outline some potential problems that homeowners should be aware of and look out for.

 

Some projects can’t wait until Spring.

If you are thinking of delaying your roof repair or replacement until next spring, we always recommend doing it now to avoid any unpleasant surprises.

For example, a small water mark on your kitchen ceiling may seem small, but that water could be travelling across your home and slowly causing more damage in other areas. During the upcoming fall and winter months, these other weakened areas will begin to show signs of water damage as well. Inevitably, the more damage there is, the more expensive your spring project will be. So why not save yourself money and have some piece of mind in knowing your home is prepared for winter.

Replacing your roof before winter will help with numerous things:

  • Leaks: Prevents leaks from growing in size and causing damage to the interior of   your home
  • Energy Bills: A good quality roof will help trap the air and prevent heat from escaping. This will assist in reducing your heating and energy bills!
  • Winter conditions: Snow storms can do serious damage to your roof. Ensure it is in good shape to avoid any emergency repairs.

 

 

How can I tell if my shingles need to be replaced?

When you look at your roof from the ground, you can usually tell if any shingles are missing or have began to lift and curl. This is the most common sign that you should have your roof assessed. If you can see that much damage from the ground, there is usually more that you are unaware of.  Here are some warning signs that you need a new roof and other general red flags to look out for:

  • Missing Shingles: Be sure to repair any blown off shingles as this is the most common gateway for water into your home. Whether wind, wear and tare or animal damage is the cause, missing shingles should always be attended to as soon as possible.
  • Curling Shingles: As the years go by, shingles will slowly begin to deteriorate and curl when under direct sunlight. Depending on the position and location of your home, this may happen to one side of the roof faster than the other. Be sure to do a full walk around of your home when assessing the roof as some sides may appear in better condition than the others.
  • Missing Nails: While doing your own assessment, if you begin to find nails around the base of your home or in your eavestroughs, this means the shingles have began to deteriorate and are no longer strong enough to be held in place. The shingle will begin to crumble, eventually falling out from under the nail.
  • Shingle granules: During your regular eavestrough cleaning, if you begin to find pieces of shingles that have fallen from the roof and into your gutters, then they have begun to deteriorate.

 

Why it is Important to Make Sure Your Roof is Summer-Ready

 

Multiple layered shingles

Something our customers always ask is if they can put new shingles over the existing. The answer is yes! However, we do not recommend it for everyone. Shingles are relatively heavy material and they place a lot of weight on your roof. Depending on the age, construction and condition of your home, too much weight will begin to cause structural damage.

Make sure your roof has been inspected for damaged plywood and black mould underneath the first layer. Chances are that if you’ve ever found a leak, you’ll find one of these as well. You want to avoid these problems – especially if you’ve already installed and paid for a new layer. This is why we sometimes recommend having everything removed, inspected and then re-installed.

 

Beware the “fly-by-nighter”

The first and most important step is to do your research. Although it is very tempting, you don’t want to hire a “fly-by-nighter” just because they provided you with a fast, cheap quote. In most cases, the job is not done properly and only ensures the worker makes a quick buck. You are also more likely to find yourself paying for another repair in the upcoming months.

Be sure that anyone with the potential to work on your property is full licensed, insured and exudes professionalism. Have one of the top roofing companies in Toronto visit your home for a proper assessment. Schedule a day that works best for you, where you have time to sit down with the company and properly discuss their findings, recommendations and the quote provided. Be sure to ask questions about materials, warranty options, company history or anything you may be curious about. A professional will always take the time to thoroughly explain and make sure you are completely informed and comfortable with your decisions.

If you want to learn more about Professional Roofers or have any questions – just give us a call! We are always happy to visit the property and provide you with a free assessment and quote.

How to Properly Clean Your Roof During the Summer

Summer is the perfect time to work outside and around your home.  In fact, sometimes our to-do lists are so big that we forget all about the roof!

Some homeowners neglect their roof maintenance until it’s too late or sometimes just forget that cleaning is mandatory for a tip-top shape roof. Follow these tips to ensure your roof stays clean this summer and is in top shape for the winter months ahead.

 

  1. INSPECT

Loose or missing shingles are the beginning of a growing problem. Shingles need to be nailed down, secured and free of any rips or tears to prevent leakage. If you see something unusual on your roof, inspect and have it repaired IMMEDIATELY.

 

  1. CLEAR

It may not seem like much, but water, leaves and other debris can be very heavy while sitting in your gutters. As the weight accumulates, the gutters will be pulled downwards, possible separating from the roof of your house. Avoid this by consistently cleaning out your gutters and downspouts and ridding of any extra weight that may cause a problem. Professional Roofers recommends that you do this at least every other month.

 

  1. TRIM

It may seem unlikely, but it isn’t. Strong winds and thunderstorms can easily break branches or tear down trees that can end up puncturing your roof. . Be sure to trim all branches that are close to your home to avoid any falling damage. Doing so will also assist in keeping the squirrels and other tree dwellers away from your roof.

 

  1. SCHEDULE

A trained roofer will be able to detect any signs of damage or weak points on your roof.  It is important to have these areas fixed ASAP before an even larger repair is needed. Schedule a roof tune-up with Professional Roofers now and save yourself from future headaches.

Clean Autumn Debris From Your Roof Before Winter Hits!  

Autumn is a beautiful season in Toronto! As the leaves start to turn colour, every neighbourhood is transformed into a natural spectacle. Take a walk through any number of our city’s parks or tree-lined residential neighbourhoods to take in the scenery, and it seems like the city has brought out its brightest plumage for one last show before it is inevitably covered with snow in the coming months. Falling leaves may add a welcome degree of colour to a stroll through the city, but their charm wears thin for homeowners once they begin to accumulate as debris on your home’s roof, clogging up your eavestrough and deteriorating between your roof’s shingles and flashing.

 

As leaves collect on the roof, they soak up moisture from the elements and begin to rot. The shingles beneath are vulnerable to the damage from prolonged exposure this moisture and may clog from deteriorating debris, leaving the felt layers of underlayment and the decking underneath without its first line of defence against rainfall and water buildup. If left unaddressed, the deterioration can lead to internal leaks, water damage, fungus and wood rot, which is why it is prudent to conduct a thorough inspection every fall. Unfortunately, the initial stages of deteriorations are often difficult to spot during a visual inspection, so it is a good idea to consult a roofing repair expert in Toronto through Pro Roofers, to conduct a thorough assessment.

In addition to your gutters and shingles, fall debris can also wreak havoc on your roof’s flashings, vents and chimneys. Flashings are a sheeted metal covering the joints of your roof, used to prevent water from penetrating the surface. Flashing is used around chimneys, vents, dormer windows and skylights. A majority of leaks are the result of roof materials loosening from the flashing, as the result of clogging caused by deteriorating leaves and other debris. Clogging leads to damming responsible for water buildup on and under your roof’s surface. Since this is another problem difficult to spot during a visual inspection, it is best to contact professionals trained in expert roof repairs to conduct a thorough inspection of your roof.

 

Homes with flat roofs especially rely on the efficacy and good maintenance of their flashing. Due to the relatively subtle degree of a flat roof’s slope, effective draining systems are absolutely necessary and flashing is an integral component of diverting water off the roof’s surface. Without adequate draining systems, ponding can occur. Ponding on a flat roof can lead to persistent leaks, especially around the vents, skylights and chimneys. If this occurs, it is best to resolve the issue before the freeze and thaw cycle of the coming winter months has a chance to aggravate the problem. Consult trusted flat roof repair experts in Toronto to address any issues regarding water buildup on your flat roof.

 

Autumn can often come and go before you know it, so enjoy the natural splendor of the season and take time to prepare your home for the cold months ahead.

 

 

 

 

 

Is Your Flat Roof Ready For The Coming Winter?

From the Danforth to Etobicoke, from King St. to Sheppard Ave., flat roofs can be seen in just about every neighbourhood in Toronto. A mark of our city’s most historic buildings and an added subtle touch to some of the city’s most unique modern homes, flat roofs contribute to Toronto’s distinct urban aesthetic.  Homeowners in our city have made the best of their flat roofs: taking advantage of their affordability, installing solar panels to generate green energy, and using them as creative recreational spaces such as rooftop decks and gardens. But now that the season for decks and gardens is well over, it is important that homeowners the time to consult Toronto roofing experts, in order to prepare their flat roofs for the coming winter. Harsh winter conditions can exacerbate any existing issues, so the fall is a great time to prevent such common problems as:

 

Ponding the pooling of water on flat roofs after heavy rain or snowfall. This is not an issue inherent to flat roof homes, since even flat roofs are built to maintain a degree of slope in order to facilitate water drainage. Ponding water is usually a sign of poor drainage, which should be addressed in order to avoid the premature deterioration of your flat roof. Persistent ponding is most detrimental during the winter months, as ponding water can become trapped in a thaw-freeze cycle on and below the surface of your roof.

 

Damage Due to a Thaw-Freeze Cycle a particular hazard of ponding during the winter months. If ponding water solidifies into ice before it can effectively drain off the roof, it may be trapped in a thaw-freeze cycle, gradually penetrating below the surface of your roof. If seeps into cracks and crevices of your roof, the next drop in temperature will cause it to expand as it freezes, creating a wider channel for further seepage and water buildup. This cycle of deterioration can last the entire winter season, resulting in serious damage to your roof. In order to prevent this before it occurs, it is advisable that homeowners seek flat roof repair help in Toronto before winter is properly here.

Leaks the initial stages of leaks are difficult to detect. Unfortunately, once a leak has become obvious, significant damage to your roof, ceiling and walls has already been done. Even minor leaks can lead to costly repairs if not addressed early. Which is why it is important to hire a professional to inspect for early signs of leaking in your roof. By the winter arrives, the heavy snow and ice buildup can aggravate the leak, resulting in costly issues, such as internal water damage and even the bowing or caving of your roof.

 

In order to avoid these issues, it is advisable that homeowners in Toronto contact their local expects in flat roof repairs before winter arrives. Given proper maintenance, your flat roof will brave the cold months and keep you safe from the elements for seasons to come.

6 Important Questions To Ask A Prospective Roofing Contractor

When it comes time to install, repair or replace a roof, no homeowner wants to pay more than they have to in order to get the job done right. But affordability is only one of several criteria for choosing the right company for the job. One of the reasons that we’ve been able to develop such a strong reputation at Pro Roofers is that we check all of the below boxes. Here are 6 important questions we get a lot that every homeowner should ask before hiring a roofing contractor – or any kind of contractor:

 

  1. Can you provide references?

 

An expert roofing company that takes pride in its workmanship should not hesitate to provide you with reliable references. Positive feedback from past clients is a great first step towards verifying that your prospective contractor is right for the job.

 

  1. Are you licensed to install and repair roofs?

 

Roof repair, like most significant home renovations, is not a simple task and should never be left to the hands of an amateur. Any prospective contractor should be able to provide you with all the necessary documentation before work begins.

 

  1. Do you have business liability insurance and workman’s compensation?

 

It is equally important to confirm that a contractor is able to show proof of liability and workman’s compensation insurance. Business liability insurance protects homeowners from any potential damage caused by the workers, whereas workman’s compensation insurance safeguards the homeowner against any potential of liability in the event of a workplace injury. Do not risk hiring any contractor unable or unwilling to provide adequate evidence of business liability insurance and workplace safety certification.

 

  1. Are you accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB)?

 

While references may provide you with a sense of the contractor’s track record and their customers’ level satisfaction, it is also prudent to check a contractor’s Better Business Bureau accreditation and record. A satisfactory BBB record is further evidence of the company’s integrity and willingness to stand behind the quality of their work.

 

  1. Are you willing to provide a written contract?

               

Beware any contractor unwilling to commit all agreements and guarantees in writing. A written contract should detail the project specifications, negotiated start and completion dates, labor and material costs, and payment terms. A contract serves to define the terms and expectations of a proposed project and is in the best interest of both the homeowner and the contractor.

 

  1. What kind of warranty do you offer?

               

A warranty not only provides the homeowner with peace of mind but signifies that the contractor is willing to stand behind the quality of materials and workmanship they offer. While companies usually provide a labor warranty, their warranty may not always include materials or the task of tear off and disposal. When considering the services of roof repair experts in Toronto, ask about whether their warranty covers materials, labor, tear off and disposal.

 

So, whether you’re looking to install, repair or replace your existing roof, give us a call and find out why we’re a cut above. With many different roofing companies to choose from in Toronto and the GTA, it is important to know that you’re choosing experts for the job. We hope that you call us for roof repair help when you need some work done – our employees are seasoned pros who really care!

Toronto’s Ongoing Construction Boom

As a company that offers flat roof repairs and roof installation, we are lucky to live in a city that is teeming with progress and construction. The city of Toronto is set to absorb 100,000 new citizens a year for the foreseeable future, and while a lot of those folks will end up living in high rises and condominiums, the demand for fully detached houses in the GTA is booming more than ever. In many cases, developers are keen to buy old, withering houses for a price, and then flip them into sleek new homes – at this point, a property anywhere near the downtown core is often more valuable than the house that sits on top of it.

 

As a result, we’ve been lucky enough to install many, many roofs on brand new houses, ensuring that they look great and are well protected from the elements. Another happy coincidence is that many developers building new homes in Toronto cater to the market by building houses with a modern aesthetic, sleek, clean lines, lots of shiny windows and – the pièce de résistance – the flat roof.

 

People know to call Professional Roofers when they need flat roof installation or flat roof repair help in Toronto and the GTA because we have a sterling reputation for specializing in flat roof work. A flat roof looks great on any home, and because a flat roof is made up of large, weatherproof membranes, there’s less of a chance of sustaining a leak than if your house is made up of smaller shingles, which are less resistant to precipitation.

At the end of the summer, with autumn and winter on the horizon, contractors are hustling their tails off to finish the job before the cold weather hits so they can get tenants or prospective buyers in there as soon as possible. Because of this rush, sometimes companies will cut corners in order to get the job done and make the property profitable. At Professional Roofers, we think this type of shoddy workmanship is reprehensible: a house is meant to keep you and your family safe and warm – lesser craftsmanship screws up your quality of life and may lead to repair costs down the road that should have been avoided.

 

When we install a roof, we make sure that the job is done right so that you won’t need serious roof work done for a long time. Yearly inspections are always a good idea, but a roof should last between twenty and thirty years and serious repairs shouldn’t really be necessary unless there’s a major storm or a tree falls on your house.

 

Whether you’re looking for workers to install a roof, or you’re having problems with your skylight or shingled roof, you can always feel free to call our Toronto roofing experts for some guidance. We started a roofing company because we love roofs, architecture and helping people. If you’re unsure of a roofing company you’re considering, you can always call us for a second opinion. When it comes to the roof over your house, never settle for less, get Pro Roofers on the job.

 

Spotlight on Moore Park

Roofing Style Guide: Spotlight On Moore Park

As you may have noticed over the past year, once in a while here on the blog we like to take a ramble through one of Toronto’s many neighbourhoods and talk about architecture, culture and sight-seeing. Obviously, we make mention of a few of the neighbourhood’s roofs as well. As a company specializing in roof repairs Toronto and the GTA, we get the opportunity to travel all over, meeting people from all walks of life and observing a wide variety of architectural styles throughout the city. Today we’re going to take a look at a tucked away, high-class gem of a neighbourhood called Moore Park.

 

Even if you’re from Toronto, you may have never heard of Moore Park, and there’s a reason: it’s tucked away at the east end of St. Clair, and basically dead-ends onto the Rosedale Ravine. It’s an incredibly desirable neighbourhood to live in because there is zero through-traffic – you can’t get anywhere by passing through the neighbourhood.

 

Most people will recognize the name of the neighbourhood to the south, an area that was featured on our expert roof repairs blog a few months ago: Rosedale. While Rosedale boasts over the top houses of millionaires that and a small strip of little boutiques and markets, Moore Park is a bit more understated and contains not even a single commercial enterprise: it’s purely residential.

One thing that we’ve noticed on our repeat visits to Moore Park to install and perform maintenance on roofs, is that many of the houses are new, however, the aesthetic is a tasteful blend of modern and traditional. Rather than seeing behemoth, ivory-covered mansions alongside space-age looking cubes – as is often the case in Rosedale – residents of Moore Park seem to have embraced old and new all at once. Many of the neighbourhood’s houses have flat, three-story facades and roofs that slant out on a slight gradient (vertically), but are completely flat on top (horizontally). In some of the older houses, we’ve seen decay and mold due to stagnant air – a good reminder to improve your attic ventilation as necessary.

 

As cheerleaders of flat-roof culture, we absolutely love this style – it shows that you can build a house with a traditional aesthetic while still making use of flat roofs and enjoy all the benefits that come along with them. The benefits, which we’ve listed many times here on the blog, are more room for higher ceilings or storage, higher resistance to precipitation and the potential for a green roof with a lovely garden.

In addition to some really nice architecture, Moore Park is simply a quaint, isolated neighbourhood with huge trees and lots of nice people walking their dogs. At Christmastime, the residents of Inglewood Avenue each erect a giant inflatable Santa, which has turned it into something of a seasonal tourist attraction – one almost doubts that other residents appreciate the extra attention to the sleepy neighbourhood.

 

Another great feature of Moore Park is that you can access the scenic Rosedale Ravine through it, which will lead you to the lush nature preserve at the Evergreen Brickworks and the jogging, cycling and hiking paths beyond!

 

Whether you live in Moore Park, Parkdale, Junction Triangle or Upper Beaches, our local roofing company can help with any of your roofing needs – Pro Roofers offers quality craftsmanship at a reasonable price!

 

 

Back To School Means Fix That Roof!

Sometimes, there’s a simple synchronicity to life that you wouldn’t necessarily expect. For example: summer is a time for vacation and socializing, especially here in our fair city of Toronto. Even if you do have to go to work in July and August, chances  are you cash in some of your sick days and cut out early as often as possible to go have fun in the sun. One thing that people in Canada do not typically think about in the summer – unless their roof is in truly terrible shape – is roofing maintenance. Save the pesky home maintenance for September or October, seems to be the general attitude in the Big Smoke.

 

When September rolls around, however, it’s time for the kids to go back to school, to roll up your leaves and dig in a work for one of the busiest seasons of the year. People tend to use the momentum of the season to take care of more practical issues as well, tying everything up in a neat little bundle, and here’s where the synchronicity comes in: by the end of a summer replete with storms, sweltering heat and high winds, you will surely require roofing help in Toronto and the GTA.

Shingle Repairs

Here at Professional Roofers, we specialize in flat roofs for many different reasons. For one, they are reasonably affordable to install, secondly, they provide more space for higher ceilings and thirdly, it’s easy for you to get up to do a bit of light maintenance, or for us to get up there and do the more serious work. Our flat roof repair experts can install a roof with such care and expert and craftsmanship that it probably won’t even need much maintenance for many years. When we do come around to fix your roof, we’ll know exactly what we’re looking for, since we installed it ourselves.

 

Because there’s a tendency for people to book roofing maintenance for September, it’s often a good idea to book ahead to make sure we’re not fully booked. This summer, Toronto saw extremely heavy windstorms, with the potential to bring down large branches on roofs and peel shingles off of houses. While this type of damage may go unnoticed for a while, the next time there’s a serious storm you may end up in hot soup.

 

It’s much better to make use of roof repair services in Toronto in the autumn before the harsh winter hits; the last thing you want is a winter storm puncturing your roof and allowing the freezing cold to enter your house.

 

So book in your annual roof maintenance now, otherwise, you’ll be rolling the dice on a matter that is not at all trivial. Once we’ve come and gone, you may want to follow up by cleaning out your spouts and gutters when the leaves all fall off the trees, otherwise, you could end up with pooling water and debris stuck in your gutters.

 

Also consider the question of ventilation going into winter – without ventilation ice dams are much more likely to occur, putting tremendous weight and pressure on your home and doing serious structural damage.

In this scenario, everyone wins!

Beware The Opportunists and Impostors

Here in the city of Toronto, we’ve had some pretty serious wind and rain storms this spring and summer, which means that a lot of branches have come down, damaging rooftops and electrical wires. Due to this unfortunate fact, there has been a high demand for expert roof repairs in the city, often coming from folks who’ve never thought twice about the state of their roof. In these types of emergency situations, it’s easy to get roped in by the first responders on the scene who claim they have the skills to quickly fix your damaged property. Beware these opportunists, they’ll often charge you an arm and a leg for shoddy work that will fall apart the next time the winds kick up.

 

 

The Importance of Maintenance and Consultation

 For the very reason stated above, it’s important to build a relationship with a trusted local roofing company before emergency strikes. Even if you don’t need work done immediately, we’re still happy to talk to you and let you know the price range for various services. After a particularly harsh winter, or a summer season of violent storms, it’s always a very good idea to have our roofing experts come and take a quick look and patch any holes or shingles that have been damaged.
