Roofing Tips from Peerless Contracting
Maintaining a strong and sturdy roof will keep your home in great shape. However, a leaky roof with weak spots, gutters prone to ice dams and warping shingles will cause a homeowner endless headaches. At Peerless Contracting we offer the best professional roofing services in the state and can repair and replace almost any type of roof. A certified GAF brand installer, we offer customers the opportunity to get a roof that not only looks great but is designed to weather the elements.
Here are a few tips for keeping your roof in great shape.
Inspections: From inside the house it is hard to tell if the roof is damaged unless a leak is making it obvious. You should have a schedule for checking the roof, both from inside the attic and from on the roof. Even if you are not a contractor you will be able to see noticeable problems and catch damage before it gets worse. Pick a clear and mild day to go on the roof and always have someone with you to help in case an accident happens.
Keep Gutters Clean: Clogged gutters can cause water to build up during rain and melting snow. This leads to damage to the shingles and eventually the ceiling. Water will begin to drip through the roof because it has no other way of draining. Contact a professional gutter cleaner to have your system fully inspected and cleaned at least twice a year.
Check for Dry Rot: A lack of ventilation will cause what is known as dry rot. When this happens the roof will actually sag and cause the roof shingles to get brittle, crack and then leak. Often this can be prevented with the installation of a ridge vent. For more roofing tips visit Peerless Contracting.
