Let's Make Your Dream Home Project A Reality:

We all appreciate a good roof over our heads, but we probably don’t give the roof much thought on a daily basis. However, if you are considering selling your home, the roof becomes a very important issue. Buyers can quickly be turned off by an old or damaged roof. This is not to say you should only pay attention to your roof if you are selling. Keeping your home’s roof in good repair will save you money in the long run by preventing other damage.

If your roof is not that old, it perhaps has some small damaged areas due to storms or other causes. Small repairs of an existing roof that is in otherwise good condition can be very cost effective and extend the life of the entire roof. The roof should be inspected by a contractor periodically, with repairs to damaged shingles, renewed caulking around roof vents and other protrusions to prevent water leaks, and checks of all trim and flashing.

Sooner or later a roof will need to be replaced, and homeowners will often delay this beyond the point where other home damage occurs. If you have extensive damage or water leaking into your home, now is the time to replace the roof. Some roofs will last longer if they are cleaned, but check with a roofing contractor first to determine if your roof should be cleaned. A power washer can damage some types of roofs, so don’t let a roof cleaner convince you their equipment won’t do any harm. Do your homework before cleaning any roof for the first time.

We have access to a wide range of roofing materials, and can make other recommendations such as replacing old and damaged gutters at the same time.
