Let's Talk Leaky Roofs
When it comes to fixing your home, you always want to go with quality over cheaper work. If you're paying your hard-earned money on something, you want it to last, right? You need to hire someone reputable and will do the job right.
Stop going with the cheapest option
Sadly, too often, we see a roof that wasn't installed properly and ultimately failed because too much moisture got in. U.S. building owners spend more than $12 billion annually on repairing, recovering, or reroofing. That's not okay. Due to improper installations, on average a roof will only last about half of its lifetime. Moreover, many roofs will start to develop leaks after only two years. Usually, these issues can be an easy fix, but with how busy life can be, our roof isn't something that we think about all the time, and it tends to go neglected until the leak appears.
Know how to pinpoint your problems
A lot of the time, a roof's issues will go neglected because the homeowner doesn't know what to investigate. Sometimes the item can be something as small as a few shingles needing repair, but it's essential to have a professional take a peek as it may be a more in-depth problem. Taking this action will also save you from having to do a total roof replacement later on down the road. We previously published another article about some problems to watch for with your roof, if you would like to read that you can click here.
Once you fix the problem – don’t forget about maintenance
A reputable company will offer you a warranty for your roof. A company with a lower price won't provide you one because they know that their work is cheap and won't last. At New Look Roofing, we not only do a free consultation but a warranty as well to ensure that you're pleased with our work. After you invest in your roof, it's so important to make sure that it's working correctly.
If you notice water discoloration on the walls in your home, you probably have a leak in your roof. If your roof wasn't appropriately placed or damaged in a storm, it could result in a ventilation issue. If there's a ventilation issue in your attic, not only will your heat bill will spike, but moisture can enter your home as can bugs.
Ultimately, it saves you so much money to have a professional come out and take a look.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
