4 Reasons to Phone an Ankeny Roofer
Its now winter and the holidays are almost over which means things tend to hit the back burner a bit. However, there are some things that shouldnt be overlooked in 2019such as your home. Im not talking about picking up and doing the normal chores like vacuuming and cleaning the bathroom. Those things are important for your weekly tasks, but an Ankeny Roofer says you should pay close attention to your roof this year. Changing weather conditions have caused a lot of damage in the past and its on its way.
Here are some reasons to call an Ankeny roofing contractor.
If you are not afraid of heights and feel comfortable on a ladder you can check for:
- Shingles that are buckling, curling, or blistering.
- Missing or broken shingles.
- Cracked and worn rubber boots around vent pipes and/or damaged flashing.
- Missing or damaged chimney cap.
These things are very vital for the safety and integrity of your roof. If any of these things are missing or damaged in any way they will need to be repaired ASAP by an Ankeny Roofing specialist.
For some, your roof may be less than 10 years old, and you may be thinking everything is fine and its not old enough to sustain such damage. This is true and false. Ankeny roof repair experts report that major storms can lift and damage shingles quickly and easily. Taking into account that hurricane winds and rain can be extremely strong even the most stable structure cant withstand it. Also, if you are near wooded areas trees and tree branches can easily break off and cause roof damage. Remember, roof damage is not just a big hole in the ceiling, although that would be very bad too. Any of the above conditions can lead to roof leaks, whichlead to roof-rot, and then a HUGE headache and a lot of money in the end.
