Your Home’s First Line of Defense

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013 | Uncategorized | No Comments

ETMVBy Brian C. Smith

Your home’s roof is its first line of defense against the searing sun, rain, wind, hail, ice, and snow. It’s exposed to more potentially damaging elements than nearly any other area of your home’s exterior. For this reason, the best way to protect your home is to keep your roof in good, sound condition at all times.

Make a point of visually inspecting your home’s roof periodically. If you observe something that’s questionable, it’s best to contact a licensed roofing contractor who can make a thorough evaluation of your roof.

A trained professional will evaluate the following areas:
• Roof structure
• Existing roof materials
• Roof flashings
• Roof valleys
• Vent pipes
• Loose or rusting fasteners

They will also check for leaks that may be occurring inside your attic.

The best time to take corrective action is at the first sign of a problem, before it becomes an even bigger problem that’s more expensive to repair and might damage your home’s interior. The best way to avoid future problems is to have your home roofed or re-roofed correctly the first time. Unfortunately, many problems homeowners experience are a direct result of poor materials and workmanship. Sadly, it’s not always easy to tell the difference between a roof that’s been installed properly and one that’s been installed poorly.

The best way to avoid problems is to select an experienced and qualified, licensed, and insured roofing contractor. Request references and check them. Contact the Better Business Bureau as well.

As owner of All Dry Roofing, I personally meet with every homeowner. I conduct a thorough evaluation of your home’s roof and make recommendations and discuss possible alternatives.

At All Dry Roofing, every roof we install is not only backed up by a guarantee, but all work is performed in a manner to ensure the roofing manufacturer’s warranty isn’t voided by failure to adhere to required specifications. We also protect your home by using roofing materials such as ice and water barriers and lifetime warrantied roof vent boots at no additional charge. These added safeguards are standard features we provide at no added cost, unlike many competitors who provide them as expensive upgrades.

Whether your home needs a repair or a new roof, I invite you to call me and discover the All Dry Roofing experience: roofs done right the first time.
