The only time to be concerned about a roof is when one finds out that there is a roof-related leak in the house or when some real damage has already been done to the roof. An inspection on the roof before the winter season might reveal signs of roof problems, like cracked or missing shingles, peeling wallpaper, or loose seams. When this happens, contacting a roofing contractor offering residential and commercial roof repair / roof installation service would be the right thing to do says Chris Szymkiewicz, owner of Total Roofing & Siding New Jersey roofing contractor. All roofing contractors usually offer four types of roofing services that can be done on all kinds of roofs, especially residential and commercial roofs.

Roof Replacement

This is not to be taken lightly but it’s a piece of cake for roofers. From a customer’s point of view, this is a very serious work but for someone who does it every day it’s just another roof to be done. However, there are some rules to follow before re-roofing your house. The roofing company has to inspect the roof and give special attention to some details. They need to check the roof for any rotted plywood below the shingles and any missing parts of the roof that need to be replaced. Another thing that the roofer must consider is the amount of time, and inconvenience of the process. The company has to make sure that they are able to get the job done in a relatively short period of time and under good weather conditions.

Roof Inspections

Homeowners should hire a roofing contractor to make a professional roof inspection minimum once a year. The roofing contractor should examine the roof and give some recommendations for any improvements and modifications needed. The roofer should also provide the customer with a report of the inspection, and approximate time to the next roof repair or inspection. Many customers request roof maintenance over internet. “80% of my customers visit my website and fill out the contact form; this is the easiest way to schedule a roof inspection” says Total Roofing & Siding.

Roof Maintenance

Roof maintenance should be done twice a year, especially before the rain season and after every heavy weather condition. Have your roof inspected for any damage to prevent future problems! If you get your roof maintenance done often, it will add to longevity, which will be also cost efficient and help you save money.

Roof Repair

Be aware of roofers who want to put on some tar or just cover up the holes with another shingle says Chris Szymkiewicz; “Most repairs should not be solved like this because this would only temporary help and that solution could fail during the first heavy weather condition causing a lot of damages to inside of your house”. Sometimes new roof installation is a better idea that solves the problems.
