If you live in Midwestern or northern states, you know all too well how bad weather can impact your commercial or residential property. Over the summer, we experienced heavy flooding, and soon, winter will be upon us, bringing with it snowstorms, freezing rain, and ice. All of these elements can wreak havoc on your house or business, including your roof. Once your roof has been hit hard by these things, it will likely need repair. Roofing repairs and maintenance are essential to helping keep your property value high and your safety at a maximum. A reputable roofing contractor uses materials that are industry regulated and approved for use on both residential or commercial properties.
It is a good idea to have your property meticulously inspected on the interior and exterior of your home or office roof, checking for missing shingles, water damage, wear and tear, ice damage, leaks, wind damage, faulty ventilation, poor insulation, and inferior flashing. Once your issues have been determined, a certified roofing company can perform any necessary repairs and/or recommend you install a new one, depending on your situation. Look for a roofing contractor that specializes in roof replacement, repair, ice dam removal, snow removal, tear-offs, re-roofing, re-deck, and installation.
Any reputable roofing company will offer:
1. A no-leak guarantee, with roofs that are sealed airtight to deter snow, rain, wind, hail, and ice.
2. A lifetime guarantee on all materials and labor.
3. An owner that is always on site, on every commercial and residential project.
4. Roofs completed in one day.
5. Free estimates and inspections.
During the winter, many roofs are susceptible to snow damage and ice dams, which can pose serious hazards to you and your loved ones’ safety. That’s why it makes sense to call highly skilled roofing professionals to remove these ice dams permanently from your property. Climbing a ladder on your own is not advisable — you need to have specialized equipment and protective gear to de-ice your roof and eliminate any snow, water, or ice dams. If you don’t have the proper skill and safety protection, you could be seriously injured and end up out of work for weeks. Why risk all of that if you don’t have to? A credible roofing company will be licensed and insured, and responsible for any accidents or injuries that may occur, so you can remain worry-free, with zero liabilities or hassles to think about.
