Preventative maintenance is easy to forget about when you are focused on other areas of your life. But according to the National Roofing Contractors Association, you should check your roof once every six months, preferably in the fall and the spring, because heavy snow can burden a troubled roof in the winter, and you’ll want to save on cooling costs in the summer. Other ways that you can extend the life of your roof include:
- Trimming back tree branches that can scratch or puncture your shingles. If you notice branches getting too close to your roof, then they need to come down.
- Clean leaves and debris from your gutter system at least twice a year. You should also call us right away if you notice sagging or damaged gutters.
- Check your attic after a heavy storm for water stains, weak shingles, or leaks.
- Pay close attention to the color of the shingles on your roof. If they show signs of algae or fungus or are discolored, these are signs of trouble.
Your peace of mind is important to us, and being able to trust the roof over your head is vital. At Jackson Contracting, we understand that you do not have time to wait when you have a roofing emergency. That’s why we make ourselves available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Simply call us at 317-214-8124, and we can send a professional roofer out to you immediately. Your roof has multiple components that work together to keep your home safe, so we thoroughly explain the process and what is best for your individual needs.
What is the difference between roof repair and replacement?
Jackson Contracting recommends roof repairs if only a small portion of the roof is damaged, such as an isolated leak or missing or cracked shingles in a particular area of your roof. But a full replacement is recommended when a roof is nearing the end of its usable life and showing signs of wear-and-tear that cannot be fixed with simple repairs. A new roof over your home can last for decades, giving you peace of mind.
Our roofing contractors in Zionsville, IN can recommend high-quality roofing materials for your residential roofing project.
Metal roofing has many advantages, from energy savings to sustainability. The top reason most of our Zionsville clients choose metal roofs is that they are durable and long-lasting. A metal roof outlasts all other roofing materials by decades, some lasting up to 50 years! By contrast, an asphalt shingle roof may need to be replaced every 15 to 20 years. You could potentially never need to replace your roof for the entire time you live in your home! Metal roofs come in a variety of styles and colors, so there are many options available to you to match your home.
Metal roofing has been around for centuries because of its fire-resistant capabilities. Before modern fire departments were able to respond to emergency calls, metal roofs were seen as a smart roofing choice to protect property from fire.
Zionsville homeowners love asphalt shingles because they are not only the most affordable roofing material on the market, but they come in a variety of shapes, colors, and styles so you can create the look for your home that you want. They are waterproof and fireproof, adding extra protection to your home.
However, a disadvantage to using asphalt shingles is that they are highly susceptible to wind damage and moisture. When strong winds lift or tear shingles, water can get underneath them. Over time, excess moisture can lead to serious mold issues. Jackson Contracting understands that you may have questions about roofing services and materials that are best for your home, so we present the best options when conducting our free on-site consultation.
Tips Before Your Roof Repair or Replacement
Safety is our number one priority. We recommend staying away from the work area while we are working on your roof repair.
It’s not uncommon for debris to fly off a roof while our contractors are working. Therefore, our Zionsville roofing contractors recommend that all cars in the vicinity of the area of the roof that we will be working on be moved to a different location temporarily, such as parking your car in the street instead of your driveway. Our contractors will also need quick access to their trucks throughout your residential roofing project, so being able to park our trucks close will facilitate getting the job done. Additionally, you should move grills, patio furniture, and toys away from the work zone. It’s a good idea to place any outside items in a garage or a shed while your new roof is being installed.
A roof replacement or repair can also be very noisy directly underneath the work area. If you work from home, then you may want to spend the day working from another location. Hammering and other work on your roof can cause vibrations that travel through the walls of your home. As a precaution, we recommend that you remove wall decorations, knickknacks, and other precious items that are hanging from your ceiling or walls. We’d hate for important items to fall and break!
If you have kids, then it is helpful to explain to them that as exciting as it might be to watch workers from a safe distance, it is very unsafe for them and for pets to be nearby. We recommend visiting family or friends while your residential roof repair or replacement project is being completed.
