Watch Out for These 4 Areas of Your Roof

Posted by on Oct 23, 2014 in Blog, Commercial Roofing, Residential Roofing | 0 comments

When it comes to roof leaks and weak spots, a few areas tend to be more susceptible to damage than others. To avoid a huge headache, property damage, and a lot of expenses, you should work casual inspections of these areas into your normal housekeeping schedule. You don’t have to check your fascia and soffit every week, but doing a visual inspection of these areas, along with your chimney and ventilation flashing, as well as a few other vulnerable areas, once a month and any time you have severe weather is just smart preventative maintenance....

What Are Seamless Rain Gutters?

Seamless gutter systems, also known as, “continuous rain gutters,” are a popular choice for residential homes and commercial buildings. You probably are more familiar with the common sectional gutters, which come in 10 or 20 foot lengths. Each such section must be joined to the adjacent one to cover longer runs. Thus, a typical house will require dozens of such joints that are connected by slip fittings and a gutter seal. Consequently, there are also dozens of potential leak sites that may well need attention as time goes on. Until the 1960s,...

Advantages of a Metal Roof

Most homeowners have for many years selected asphalt roofing shingles, whether for a new house or for re-roofing an existing house. As the name implies, these shingles are a petroleum product and, as such, thus adds to our dependence on fossil fuels. Their lifetime is about 15-20 years, resulting in some 10 million tons of waste per year in the US. While these shingles are recyclable, it involves numerous steps since they are contaminated with pieces of wood, nails and other material that must be separated. In addition to being unfriendly to...

Common Issues with Commercial Roofing

Unlike most residential roofs, many commercial roofs often have low slopes, which can lead to standing water from different sources. As time goes by, this can lead to deteriorating roofing material and underlying structures. Standing water from rainfall is common unless proper drainage measures were taken during construction. In general, if water is still standing on the roof 48 hours after rainfall, then there likely is a problem with slope and/or drainage. Often puddling may originate around the HVAC units installed on the roof because they...
