Roofing Tips...
Northern Counties Roofing Systems ImagesIf you own or rent your house you know just how hard it is keeping everything functioning and fixed in a timely manner. A lot of people have turned into DIY project experts which is great. There is a certain level of pride you get when you are able to fix things on your own. For others, time and patients keep the DIY projects in the distance. There is no right or wrong way to be as long as you are being proactive about your home maintenance. As a Corning roofer, we see people spending so much time on the interior that they forget about the exterior problems. Thus, often leading to a lot of money spent on reroof projects that could have been saved if you got a roof inspection years ago. With that said, we are here to shed some light on some things about your roof.

First, your roof will not last forever. You may think this does not need to be said, but if you know things don't last forever you may be inclined to think about it once and awhile. Depending on where you live and the weather condition your area gets your roof should last between 20-30 years. I know your thinking Why would I think about something that will last so long?. Well, like a car, your roof needs maintenance in order to last long too. A car will
only go as long as you keep it up. That's the same with your roof.

Next, your shingles...Your shingles tell the story about how well your roof is performing or not performing. If you were to look up at your shingles, minus a little dust/dirt there should be a nice consistent pattern with no shingles being out of place or out of alignment. That is something the non-DIY person can do. If you see raised shingles or missing shingles that is the time you should call your roofer. On the other hand, if everything looks good to you, it does not mean your roof is safe. You most often cant see the full scope of your roof from the ground level and if you are not a trained roofing expert you may not know what to look for if you got on top of it either.

Lastly, research local roofers in your area and keep the contact info handy. Storm and wind damage can happen in a blink of an eye and its often at the worst of times. You dont want to be researching best local roofers when there is a gaping hole in the ceiling during the winter. Of course, we are always here to help in your time of need. Not to toot our own horns, but we have an A+ rating for many years and a whole lot of happy clients since we started. If you need an Asphalt roof, Metal roof or eagle tile we got you covered.

Hopefully, you learned a little more about your roof and are going to take the proactive approach and schedule a roof inspection as you might have roof damage as we speak.
