Are You in Need of a Roof Repair or Replacement from Your Battle Creek Roofer?
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. In this post, we will discuss ways you can tell whether it’s time to contact your Battle Creek roofer, Sherriff-Goslin to repair or replace your roof.
First, you’ll need to perform a simple visual inspection of your roof. Are your roof and gutters free of debris? Are there any missing, curled, or cracked roof shingles? If so, these require immediate repair. Is there damaged flashing around vents, chimneys, eaves, and skylights? If so, this damage can allow water to penetrate your roof surface. If you suspect damaged flashing components, you should contact your Battle Creek roofer, Sherriff-Goslin, for a free roof inspection.
While regular repair and maintenance of your roof will help extend its life, a time will come where your roof will begin to fail and need to be replaced. If your roof is leaking or your shingles are showing extensive cracking or decay, a roof replacement is likely necessary. It’s extremely important not to wait to have your roof replaced, as extensive roof damage can result in water penetration that can lead to moisture and mold growth inside your home as well as increased heating and cooling costs.
When contacting a Battle Creek roofer, it’s important to be sure your bidding contractors are insured and licensed as required by local building codes. You should also be sure to ask for roofing estimates in a way that helps you perform an apples-to-apples comparison and that each roofer is offering you the same things. Consider not only the shingle warranty being offered but also ask you contractor what guarantee they provide on their workmanship.
