Benefits to Hiring a Local Roofing Contractor

Here are some benefits to hiring a local roofing contractor that you may not have thought of.

Verifying License, Insurance, and References, is Easier

Obtaining a contractor’s license and insurance information, as well as contacts for references, is easier when you work with a local contractor. In addition, you might be able to visit homes in the area that your roofer has worked on and examine their handiwork.

Lower Chance of Issues with Non-Compliance

Local contractors are more familiar with local building codes, which means you won’t have to worry about your new roof having compliance issues.

Have a Local Contact in Case of Roofing Emergencies

Having a local roofing contractor’s number in your contacts list can be helpful if you need assistance after a storm or for any type of roofing emergency. They can also better handle insurance documentation since they work regularly with local insurance agents and understand weather damages in their areas.

Receive Full Attention

Local roofers tend to be better at providing full attention to their customers, on a compliance level as well as communication with home owners for the success of the roofing project. Being a smaller team, the owner and managers are knowledgeable about roofing work and take a hands-on approach to each project.

Part of the Community

Local roofers are not just business, they are part of the community. They usually give back to the local community in some way through groups and charities such as St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway.

Common Causes of Roof Leaks

A leaking roof causes damage to your attic insulation and roof deck causing mold and mildew growth and reduced energy efficiency. Roof leaks have several causes, all of which require the assistance of a professional Roofing Contractor. Here are some common causes of a roof leak:

Loose, Cracked or Rotting Shingles

The biggest cause for roof leaks. If your roof is older, you may see signs of cracking or rotting in the shingles. Also, shingles may come loose and go missing. A weakened outer layer will expose your home to the elements, which wears on the under layers and eventually cause leaks to form. If your roof is in such a condition, you need to have it inspected.

Roofing Nails Backing Out

Apart from roofing shingles, roofing nails can sometimes back out. This leaves small holes that water can easily penetrate, and leave your shingles unstable. Such little holes are typically unnoticeable to an untrained eye, however, a good roofing inspector is trained to see the signs of nails backing out.

Damaged or Dislodged Flashing

Flashing is a piece of metal that protects the areas of your roof where it meets a vertical surface (i.e. walls). If flashing is damaged or dislodged by strong winds, this could leave those areas of the roof exposed. A perfect way for rainwater to get in.

Cracked Rubber Boots

Plumbing vents and anything that protrudes from the roof require a rubber “boot,” which works like flashing by protecting the area where it meets the roof. Continued exposure to outside conditions will eventually crack or dislodge the rubber boot.

 

Are you seeing these signs on your roof? Catching these issues early help you prevent bigger repair expenses or even a premature roof replacement!

Fall is Here – Time to Winterize Your Roof!

Fall weather has hit Colorado! It is time to winterize your roof before the inevitable cold, wet, and snowy months. Here is a general checklist for any homeowner to follow. Feel confident your roof will last the cold season!

Gutters

Your gutters play a vital role in the integrity of your roofing system. Clogged, rusty and damaged gutters allows water to penetrate the roof and siding of your home. Repair any damaged sections of your gutters.

Roof

Weak spots in your roof will surely lead to problems. The most common damages to look for are: curling shingles, cracks, excessive dark patches, dents, missing shingles, leaks, paint bubbling around gutters and rotting eves.

Siding

As with your roof, weak spots in the siding of your house needs to be addressed before the colder elements make the problem worse. Look for cracks, curling, soft and rotten spots, and discoloration. Siding usually lasts about 30 yrs if it is properly taken care of. Siding repainting is needed every 7-15 years.

If you have vinyl siding, also look for any holes, discoloration on different sides of your house, and vinyl pieces hanging loose. Lifetime of Vinyl siding is about 20 years.

Cutback Tree Limbs

Do you have tree limbs, healthy or not, over your roof or gutters? Consider having them trimmed back so that wet and heavy snow won’t snap the branches and bring it crashing down onto your roof!

Check Attic Insulation

Insulation keeps your home warmer in winter months, and cooler during summer months, check your attic to see if your insulation looks in good condition. Any insulation look damp or moldy? Replace it. Attic insulation should also cover your eaves, but all vents should remain clear for air flow.

A Professional Roof Inspection is Always a Good Idea!

If you suspect any damage to your roof, siding, or gutters, or have not had a roofing inspection in recent years, call for a professional roofing inspection as soon as possible! K&P Exteriors provides roofing and siding services to the Colorado Front Range. We deliver uncompromising customer service that has made us a trusted name in the roofing industry.

Hail Damage – Attention Home Owners – Did you Know?

Here in Colorado, hail damage is relatively common. When hail hits, it can damage the roof or covering of your home, and ignoring that damage can have major implications. So, even if you think your roof looks okay after a storm, home owners, get your roof inspected!

Roof Damage Quick Facts:

  • The shingles on your roof have protective granules that may “shed” after a storm.
  • The loss of these protective granules allows the shingles to become exposed to harsh UV rays from the sun, making them weaker.
  • Weaker shingles are more susceptible to further damage by weather changes such as; snow, high winds, and rain. Further impacting the integrity of your roof.
  • This can impact the drainage around your house, and causes leakage, or flooding issues!
  • Roof warranties may become void, or decreased, if roof repairs are not addressed as soon as possible and completed by a professional roofing company.

 

In addition, water damage is persistent. Mold can spread subtly into your ceilings and walls. Certain molds can compromise your health, and eat away at your home’s foundation.

We are coming up on the colder, and wetter months of the year. Before winter is here, if you suspect hail damage or other damage to your roof, it’s better to err on the side of caution and get it checked out quick!
