Local roofing company difference

in News

Just came across this good tip on Traveler’s Insurance website. They’re experts so they should know.

It stated… Always consider hiring local, licensed roofing contractors whenever possible. It is easier to deal with a local roofing contractor if problems develop. However, since it may not always be possible to work with a local roofing contractor, make sure to thoroughly check references. Be especially suspicious of door-to-door salespeople who make unrealistically low estimates, refuse to leave a contract overnight, or try to sell their services by playing on your emotions.

We’re a local roofing company in the Raleigh, Cary, Durham area – and that makes a big difference.  Glad to hear it from the experts!

What are roof nail pops?

in News

Roof nail pops on a roof can be caused by a variety of reasons. During climate changes, expansion and contraction can cause to the nail to pop up. When this happens, the roof shingles become loose and start to lift. Other causes of roof nail pops can be shingles that were not nailed tightly during the roof installation.   Additionally, the roof installers could have used nails that were too short.  It really is not uncommon to have a few roof nail pops, but left unattended, the roofing system will be compromised, and water will penetrate the wood causing roof leaks and interior damage.

There are lots of reasons why roof nail pops can occur, but the important thing is to take care of them as soon as you notice raised shingles. If the roof nail pops are dealt with immediately, a fix can be quite simple.  Removing and replacing the loose nails and sealing the roof shingles down will take care of the problem and will prevent other more expensive damages from occuring.

Winter Weather Can Damage to Your Roof

in News
Is your roof ready for this brutal winter? By now you should know that potholes are the result of the freeze/thaw. The rapid swings in temperature can wreak havoc on the asphalt roads and cause them to fail. Likewise, every time you see or don’t see and hit a pothole, think about your roof. It might be worth the preventive maintenance to have a professional roofer get up there and take a close look at your roof. The continual heating/cooling can cause ice dams which occur when accumulated snow on a sloping roof melts and flows down the roof until it reaches an area cold enough and then refreezes, typically at the eaves. The ice formed in such a way often grows and “backs-up” the roof pushing its way under the shingles and damaging everything in its path. This is a situation that you want to identify early. Schedule your FREE roof estimate so we can tell you if your roof is ready for this brutal winter ahead and remember to think about your roof every time you hit or avoid a pothole!
