Protecting your largest investment
by: Kirsten Land on February 21st, 2017 about Roofing Advice
For most families, their home is their largest single investment. What’s the best way to protect that investment? Taking care of the small issues before they become humongous (and expensive).
But as far as roofs go, we know homeowners worry whether or not a roofing company will even come out for a small repair.
When it comes to small roof repairs, many people assume roofing companies won’t take their job because it’s just too small. While it’s true that many roofing companies operate this way and only do roof replacements, there are many, including Land Roofing, that happily take on repairs of all sizes. To protect your roof and everything underneath it, every repair is important, no matter how small.
What do we mean by “small roof repair”?
If you have any issue with your roof, call us to check it out. For example, we’ve come out to repair a single shingle on a roof. We’ve also repaired tiny leaks on skylights and vulnerable spots around fireplace flashing.
Consider a maintenance program
If getting to a small issue before it becomes a bigger issue is good, imagine getting to a teeny-tiny issue before it becomes even a small issue. That’s even better.
Having a maintenance program is a bit like having roof-radar. Experienced professionals will be your eyes in the sky looking for any existing or potential issues. This regular maintenance extends the overall life of your roof.
What should you look for in a maintenance program?
When you’re choosing your roofer, ask if they have a maintenance program. If they do, make sure the program offers:
- Bi-annual inspections
- Cleaning and removing debris from gutters
- Inspection of all rubber plumbing boots
- Checking for buckled roof decking
- Inspection of all attic vents for cracking, flaking, and rusting
- Looking for animal damage or roof penetration
- Examination of shingles for curling, cupping, flaking, tearing, splitting, and blistering
Our roof maintenance program covers all these points and even qualifies you for discounts on repairs.
We know that small problems can turn into large problems if they aren’t addressed quickly. If you’d like to request a small roof repair or have questions about our maintenance program, give us a call.
