Roof Replacement Pros
Amateur roofing contractors may seem like a more affordable option, but will never provide the same quality of work, and the roofs that they install may have immediate issues that aren’t noticeable until they have become more serious problems. We have seen fallout from step flashing installed incorrectly which leads to water running down into the attic, improper roof ventilation which can lead to energy efficiency problems, as well as potential moisture buildup inside the attic. These and other problems may arise after homeowners choose to hire a roofing amateur. A professional will provide an extensive inspection to understand everything from the structural integrity of your roof, to the effectiveness of each gutter. Professional roofing contractors are able to spot small problems before they become a more expensive issue and provide you with a breakdown of what is crucial to fix immediately. Our goal as a local Columbus roofing company is to provide our community with assessments and information necessary for them to make the best decision for their own homes.
Roof Replacement & Maintenance
We always recommend homeowners contact a roofing company for an inspection if one hasn’t been done in over a year. If you want to avoid a premature roof replacement it is important to keep a regular roof repair schedule so the roof does not deteriorate faster than it is expected. Avoiding any roof repair work will only result in the roof degrading and allowing small issues to grow into something that will require more time and money. Having local roofing contractors service your roof regularly will help with the longevity of your roof and increase the time between each roof replacement. While a roof replacement is something that only occurs once or twice in someone’s lifetime, it can be a large financial expense, so maintaining longevity with your home’s roof is an important part of being a homeowner.
Maintaining Your New Roof
While it depends on the materials used and the quality of installation, generally speaking a roof should have a lifespan of several decades, and with some maintenance it be able to protect your home from the outdoor elements and provide energy efficiency for whatever climate you live in. We provide regular maintenance to properties across Columbus to keep these roofs in top condition so their lifespan is not cut short due to damaged shingles, leaks, and other issues that can cause rapid degradation. We encourage all homeowners, especially ones that are having a new roof installed to have a plan in place for maintenance as it will help to maintain the value of your investment. We can cover everything from shingle replacement, to ventilation and gutter repairs in order to keep your roof in the best possible condition.
Knowing Roof Material Options
While there are a lot of great resources online to determine what materials are best suited for your roof replacement, experts at our roofing company have experience with most types of roofing materials and can help you narrow down which materials will work best for your roof. As long time residents of Central Ohio we have experienced all sides of what extreme weather Columbus has to offer and will provide you with what we believe to be the best roofing material options for your specific home and then professionally install the roof from start to finish.
Asphalt Roof Installation in Columbus Ohio
The options for roofing materials have expanded a great deal and can sometimes be overwhelming for homeowners that have never had to decide what materials to use for their replacement. While there are a lot of factors like affordability, durability, expected lifespan, and more, our company believes that Asphalt roofing is a great investment for a modern roof replacement. The affordability alone sets Asphalt shingles apart, and it remains a durable option that can last decades, which often makes it an obvious choice for its cost-effectiveness. Asphalt shingles are also made to be environmentally friendly as they are made from recyclable materials; when comparing all roofing types, Asphalt is one of the most environmentally friendly options. We work with homeowners and commercial property managers to create a plan designed for their particular budget and needs. If you have Asphalt or any other materials in mind for your upcoming roof replacement call us today to speak with one of our company team members about what roofing materials are best for your home.
Knowing When to Replace
Owning a home can require an unexpected amount of maintenance and roof repair projects throughout each year and it can sometimes be a daunting experience, especially to homeowners who put off roof repairs or any other necessary service. While keeping to a regular roofing maintenance schedule may seem daunting, the alternative of letting damage and wear and tear continue to accrue will result in a more extensive roof repair or even roof replacement. We believe homeowners should absolutely educate themselves about common indicators that point towards roof repair, maintenance, or replacement, but always utilize the professional opinion of a Columbus roofing company like Whitt Roofing & Restoration to be certain your roof is getting the proper care it needs to continue protecting your home.
Signs Contractors Look for During Inspections
A very simple indicator that a roof replacement may be necessary is your energy bills increasing. While it may seem overly simple, higher than normal energy bills can mean your roof isn’t providing the insulation and ventilation that it is supposed to in order to keep outside elements out and maintain a normal attic temperature. If your roof is in need of a replacement this increase in your energy bill will only continue to get worse. If shingles appear to be missing from your roof this may be an indicator that they are beginning to age and have dried up from long term sun exposure. This is a normal part of an aging roof as the shingles become brittle over time and are more susceptible to damage. The unfortunate truth is that unless you have someone replace these shingles it may lead to more widespread issues including leaks that can cause water damage. While missing shingles often result in leaks, if leaking occurs even without missing shingles this may be another indicator it is time to have a professional roofing company send someone out to perform an estimate. As local Ohio roof repair and replacement experts we can provide a thorough estimate and get the replacement of your home roof on our schedule. We proudly work with commercial and residential properties all across Columbus Ohio and believe the quality of each service that we offer speaks for itself.
Utilizing Professional Roofing Contractors
Even with regular service work and maintenance all roofs will need replacement at some point. These warning signs may not always present themselves so obviously, but as a family owned company we know keeping your home safe is a priority will provide a free estimate so you can be certain a new roof is necessary for your home. Utilizing the expertise and knowledge of professional roofing contractors to provide a thorough inspection of your roof is the best way to know when the roof is too old or damaged to continue repairing. Our roofing experts can give you a breakdown of the state of your roof from the insulation to the structural integrity so you’re fully informed to make the right decision for your home.
