With the snow and ice of winter almost behind us and spring just around the corner, it’s a great time to start scheduling home maintenance projects, like roof repairs from the premier Battle Creek roofing contractor, Sherriff-Goslin.
It’s no secret that your roof provides necessary protection for you home from the elements and will require maintenance over time as damage or normal aging and wear and tear occur. In this post, we will look at three signs that it is time to hire Sherriff-Goslin.
Being a homeowner has many perks, however, home maintenance and the critical task of repairing or replacing your roof as its needed, is not one of them. While it’s safe and acceptable to put off certain household maintenance and projects, your roof is not one of them.
When shingle cupping begins on an asphalt shingle roof, it can turn your home into an eyesore, as well as weakening its overall performance by loosening the seal on the shingle. Cupping occurs when the shingle becomes concave in the middle and the corners or sides loosen up and their edges raise.
Algae themselves don’t actually cause physical damage to a roof’s surface. They just sit there and alter the roof appearance over time, causing black streaks and stains that make a roof look worn and poorly maintained.
There are good reasons that asphalt shingles have become the most popular residential roofing material on the market. Asphalt shingles are relatively inexpensive to manufacture and purchase, and the installation is systematic and straightforward.
Two years ago, Sherriff-Goslin performed a free roof inspection on a house that had a small chimney leak. The home was 13 years old and located in Gull Lake, Michigan. The initial roof inspection revealed a small leak caused by shingles that needed replacing and chimneys that needed to be rebuilt.
Each year, thousands of homeowners lose their roofs to hail and wind damage because their roof is not durable enough. This can be prevented. A roof built with quality construction materials including durable shingles and installed by Sherriff-Goslin, your Battle Creek roofing company.
When it’s time to have a new roof installed by your local Battle Creek roofing contractor, you’ll need to decide on the type of material to use. It’s an important decision that will affect your home’s performance and value for decades to come.
