You shouldn’t wait for stormy weather to replace your roof

Your roof is your home’s first defense against the elements and often receives the toughest beating.  Repairing or replacing your roof can be a big investment. It is important to have your roof inspected and replaced regularly so that it can withstand stormy weather. No one wants to have to deal with roof repairs as an emergency situation. Guardian Roofing is here for you to make sure that you are covered all year long.

The importance of replacing your roof early

The National Roofing Contractors Association recommends that your roof be extensively inspected annually- if conducted correctly an inspection and regular maintenance program will not only add years to the life of the roof, but it will detect minor problems before the damage is widespread and costly. Over time, normal weathering, moss and tree leaves can cause damage to the flashing and the shingles themselves. Shingles can crack or break and allow water into the roof layers underneath and eventually leak into the home or business. There are other benefits to regular maintenance, other than leak prevention:

Save Energy

Everyone wants to save money and having a good roof is one way to do that. Although it can be expensive to replace your roof, a good roof actually reduces the energy cost of your home. With today’s roofing technology, the temperature of your house can be better regulated to make your home more comfortable and help out your wallet. 

Emergency Preparation

There is nothing worse than having an emergency situation at your home. Not only is it stressful for everyone, but it will almost always cost you a lot of money. If you have a bad roof during a storm, that can not only cause roof damage but possibly damage other parts of your home. It is important to have regular roof inspections and repairs so that when bad weather does come, you can have peace of mind knowing that you are protected.

Health and safety

Staying healthy is more important than ever, and that starts in your home. If your roof is old or has not been inspected in a long time you run the risk of having unwanted hazards such as mold and mildew. These often go unnoticed by homeowners until it is too late and can be harmful to the health of you and your family. Having your roof inspected and replaced will catch these problems before they get out of hand. 

Peace of mind

In the event of a storm or bad weather, there are so many things that you can be stressed about so don’t let your roof be one of them. By having regular inspections and replacements, you can feel confident that your roof will keep you and your family protected. If there is a storm coming, try to plan ahead and be proactive if you do have roof issues. We have a variety of services that can help if you think there may be a problem coming.
