Some Quick Roof Tips That Will Help Your Home

In terms of roofs, you may be somewhat lacking in expertise. If you do own a home, however, you really need to know a few things about this. Roof damage can eventually lead to serious damage to other parts of your home. The following advice about roofing will prove helpful.

Inspect your roof at least once yearly. The most common time of year for a roof to suffer from damage is during the winter and spring months. For this reason, these are the times to pay close attention to your own roof.

Never try to repair a leaky roof while it is still raining. Not only is there no way to quickly patch a leak, but your safety could be compromised on a slippery, wet roof. Wait until it stops raining and the roof is completely dry before attempting to repair it.

Make certain you are secured the right way when you venture on the roof. This is key, because you can easily lose your balance, which can result in serious injury or death.

Prior to putting your name on a contract, ask your roofer a few questions. If you are having shingle work done, ask the number of nails they typically use for each shingle. Usually, three nails are inadequate to the job. Ask them about what their methods are to see if the answer they give is satisfactory. If they do not, continue looking.

If you have already called a roofing contractor, but he is not scheduled to visit for a few days, you should try to provide yourself with a temporary fix for your leaking roof. You should purchase heavy plastic and nail it to the area. This isn’t the best way to manage leaks, but it can help you out in a pinch.

Only hire an experienced contractor. If you know anyone who recently had some work done on their roof, ask them for references. Hiring a contractor who is not properly licensed and experienced could cost you a lot.

Once your list of potential contractors is narrowed down you should see if any of them provide warranties. The warranty should last at least three years. Keep in mind that a longer warranty is always better. The warranty should deal with poor work and defective materials, and you should have manufacturer warranty copies too.

Roofing contractors you hire should have current credentials. Nearly every state insists that roofers be properly licensed, so inspect your contractor’s paperwork to ensure that they are fully compliant. Also, be sure they are currently holding good liability insurance and a worker’s compensation certificate.

When hiring a contractor, only hire someone who provides a copy of their license and insurance. If they can’t, don’t hire them. If you hire them, you could cost yourself a lot of money.

Most new homeowners don’t give their roof much thought until it causes problems. After reading this article, you should be confident in your ability to select a roofer or maintain and repair a roof on your own. Do not forget that your roof is there to protect your house and everyone underneath.
