In winter, you need a roofer more than ever

Roofer in Charlotte, NCThe roof in winter

The thing about snow is that it does the most damage in the places where it is least expected. In Lubbock earlier this month, a number of roofs collapsed due to snow accumulation. If snow can do that much damage in Texas, it can do it in North Carolina. Particularly vulnerable are car port roofs and the flat roofs of some businesses, or any roof where snow piles up rather than sliding off. A professional roofer can inspect your roof and let you know how vulnerable it is to snow and other forms of damage.

In case your roof is damaged, they can provide an estimate of the cost for the benefit of your insurance company. When the time comes to do the repairs, the roofer can tell you how much work is needed, how long it will take and what the best materials are. Then they can do the repair work, replacing tiles, shingles or metal roofing, providing or repairing chimney caps and making sure the gutters are clean and unobstructed. If you are replacing the roof completely, then the first step in roof installation is for your roofer to remove the old one. A good roofer will do this in one to three days, without leaving any bits of old roofing materials around the home or yard.

In addition to repair work, a good roofer can take a lot of the pain out of building a new home or business location. The first thing they will do is talk with you and help you figure out what you want — whether you need a roof that can be installed quickly and cheaply right now, whether you are willing to pay extra for a roof that will last for decades to come, and what style of roof you would consider most appropriate. The next step is to set a schedule. The work should be complete when you need it to be done, but you will also want it to be done well. Choosing a roofer is one of the most important decisions you can make for your home. Look for a company that offers free estimates, has a reputation for quality work and is committed to customer satisfaction.
