Homeowners may need different types of roofing services throughout their lifetime. Whether it is about cleaning, repairing or restoring, it is important that you, as a homeowner, work with a professional to help you in safely and properly maintain the efficiency of your roof. Your roof is your home’s primary protection from severe and unexpected weather conditions and other environmental occurrences.
The roofing services that you will need are generally divided it into two categories: new roof services and roof repair.
New Roof Services
There are different reasons why you may be in need of a new roof. Primarily, your roof may have reached the end of its lifespan or the damage is too severe or extensive to ensure proper repair of your roof. MB Roofing Pros provides installation services along with a full inspection to help verify your need for a new roof. According to roofing experts, the installation of a new roof is generally divided into three main processes – roof preparation, installation, and cleaning.
- Roof preparation
This basically includes removing of the old and damaged roof and inspecting the wood sheathing and looking for signs of damage such as cracking or rotting. This will help determine whether or not you will have to replace the sheathing as well. This process also includes inspection of the attic to determine the need for ventilation. Keep in mind that your roof needs proper ventilation to prevent easily damaging your roof.
Once everything is set and prepared, your new roof will now be installed along with the flashings and underlayment. Additional ventilation and skylights may also be installed if needed.
This process generally includes cleaning and disposing of the debris that has accumulated from preparing the roof and installation of your new roof. Your roofing company or home builder should have a specific process for properly disposing of all the debris.
Roof Repair Services
Homeowners seek professional roof repair services for several reasons such as damages from a recent storm or problems caused by improper maintenance or cleaning. Here are some of the repairs you may need to help keep your roof in proper working condition.
Your gutters will need to be repaired if they are crooked or leaking. It is important that you have your gutters repaired immediately as soon as you notice signs of leakage. Otherwise, you will have a bigger leak problem to deal with. Aside from being time-consuming, postponing necessary gutter repairs can also get costly.
Aside from your gutters, leaks can also appear in other parts of your roof. And like gutter repairs, you need to immediately have these leaks repaired by a professional service contractor as soon as you notice them. Leaks can quickly develop into bigger, more severe and more costly problems affecting other areas of your house.
To prevent this from happening, what you should do is conduct an annual inspection of your roof and ceiling. You are looking for signs of leaks, which include water stains on your walls and ceilings and mold growth.
Your roof shingles can become missing or chipped or cracked due to severe weather conditions. Should this happen, you will need to have them repaired immediately to prevent other problems from arising. When you leave your shingles loose or missing for a long time, water may seep through your shingles causing the underlying wood frame to rot. As a result, your roof frame will gradually weaken; thus, reducing the lifespan of your roof.
Another roof service you may want to consider is regular inspections of your roof. A professional will conduct an overall inspection of your roof in order to identify potential problems and need for repair before they develop into more severe and costly problems.
Regular roof inspections can be done once a year. Hire a licensed and trained professional like MB Roofing Pros to inspect your roof and identify potential problems.
