A Rhode Island Roofer Helps to Enhance your Home

Many people don't think about the importance of a solid roof until it's too late, except your professional Rhode Island Roofer. They know, first-hand, how absolutely essential it is to have a secure, leak-free, sturdy and reliable roof on your home.

Your home is one of the most important investments you will ever make, and your Rhode Island Roofer knows that. You have to make sure that you minimize the damage that your house has taken over many years. A lot of people look at their home with great pride and they want to keep it in mint condition for as long as possible. Still others are interested in making their home as cost effective and efficient as possible. All of these people can turn to skilled Rhode Island Roofer, because your roof, more than any other part of your home, is integral to each of these aspects of homeownership.

Rhode Island Roofer; Types of Roofing Materials

You can find asphalt shingles, steel or metal sheeting, fiberglass, slate and terra cotta tiles or rubber roofing.

Each different type of roof covering comes with its own set of problems, all of which the Rhode Island Roofer will know how to fix. Roof problems need to be identified and solved early or else they might become too expensive or dangerous. An expert Rhode Island Roofer will be happy to look over your roof and let you know about any issues they find as well as potential problems you may need to deal with in the near future.

Rhode Island Roofer - Building a Stronger Home

The exteriors of your house, especially the roof and gutters, have to withstand harsh weather year after year. You may need to paint, repair, clean, or replace the gutters completely. Chances are, when your gutters are showing signs of trouble, your roof needs attention too. Your local Rhode Island Roofer can examine and diagnose roofing problems minutely and suggest a cure for them.

Frequently clogged gutters or leaking walls (both interior and exterior) indicates the pile up of debris on the roof. Damage to the roof can be caused by loose branches, piles of leaves, and other light objects that are swept onto your roof during a storm. Your Rhode Island Roofer will tell you that they have found birds, mice, and other types of vermin nesting in the debris that piles up on rooftop. These nests, made of piles of leaves and twigs, can trap moisture, leading to loose shingles, mold, indoor leaks, and even vermin infestation. An experienced Rhode Island Roofer will recommend making sure your roof is clear of any debris or damage after storms.

Turning Back the Clock with a Rhode Island Roofer

Even an excellent roof wears down over time. Although shingles may be referred to as "25 year" or "30 year" shingles, those numbers refer to the manufacturer's warranty, and they typically only last about three-quarters that amount. So realistically you can expect "25 year" shingles to actually last from fifteen to twenty years. If you live in an area prone to storms or heavy winds, your shingles (or entire roof) may need to be replaced every decade. With a Rhode Island Roofer, this doesn't have to be an extreme cost, however.

A Rhode Island Roofer can be there to help when you notice lost, damaged, or broken shingles. In the event of any shingle problems, they can expose the substrate of the roof to the natural elements, causing indoor leaks. Loose or broken shingles could easily slip off the roof, causing injury to someone standing below. Areas where shingles are missing will allow rain, wind, and debris to build up under nearby shingles, ultimately creating a "domino effect" where many other shingles become loose or broken as a result. If you know or suspect that the shingles on your roof are loose or missing, contact your local Rhode Island Roofer today for an investigation.

An inexpensive and often effective way to avoid the high cost of replacing the entire roof is called "building up". Speak to your Rhode Island Roofer to find out what they feel is a viable option. Some roofs may not be in good enough condition to simply add new shingles, so in many cases, completely replacing the roof is the best solution. The Rhode Island Roofer can talk with you about your roofing options and help you to make the best decision for your home and your budget.

Improve Your Home's Efficiency with a Rhode Island Roofer

Your roof is the first line of defense your home has against storms, sleet, and hail. By providing adequate ventilation, your roof protects your home from overheating, and by holding in the heat, it keeps your home warm. It is therefore imperative that you make sure your roof is prepared, both indoors and out, for any sort of weather emergency. A professional Rhode Island Roofer can help.

First of all, you should thoroughly check your roof for damage at the start of each new season. Make sure the gutters are clear, there is no debris piled on or trapped under shingles, the eaves and attic aren't sheltering homes for squirrels or birds, and the roof is structurally sound. That last step might require help from your Rhode Island Roofer. Climbing up onto the roof of any home can be very dangerous. The contractor from Rhode Island Roofer will check to make sure your roof is solid, the shingles are secure, and the entire roof structure is functioning as it's meant to. While they're up there, they can probably point out problem areas to keep an eye on, or any issues you might not have noticed.

You will need all the help you can get from the Rhode Island Roofer. You can help your roof by installing a gutter guard or leaf cover to help prevent debris from forming in your gutters. The additional weight of debris prevents the gutters from draining and can even tear them down. Check the fasteners on your gutters, and tighten any that need it. Replace worn screws and brackets. If your home has a chimney, check the mortar and brick for any signs of wear. Your Rhode Island Roofer can probably recommend a mason to make any needed repairs.
