Inspecting your roof, picking a roofing company

Roofing company in Charlotte, NCLooking over your roof

August has begun. This is one of the two months in which precipitation is highest in the Charlotte and Concord, NC area, with just over four inches of rain on average. (The other one is March, so we won’t have to worry about it for a while.) This area is blessed with a fairly non-destructive climate once you get away from the coast and its hurricanes — according to, homeowner’s insurance rates in Charlotte and Concord, NC are both below the state average. All the same, if there’s a defect in your roof, you need to know about it now.

Some signs of roof damage are obvious, while others are more subtle. If you think there might be a problem with your roof, but you can’t see any sign of it, look for spots in your yard around the edges of your roof that are wetter than the rest of the yard. These are a sign of clogged gutters. Check the attic for water damage. On a sunny day, look for sunlight coming in through cracks in the roof, and if it’s hot outside, check the temperature of the attic inside — too hot an attic can warp shingles from below. If you’re really worried, get a Charlotte or Concord, NC roofing company to do a real inspection.

Choosing the right roofing company for your home

To avoid a fraudulent company, look for a company that has been in business for a long time — ten years or more is enough. Less than one tenth of one percent of roofing companies are able to stay in business for this long. The Better Business Bureau will have a list of accredited roofing companies in your area, and will also have ratings of them. Check their web site, and ask people you know in the area for recommendations. Also, check companies for licenses, permits and insurance, and see if the company is a member of a professional association. Look for a company that has a good reputation with many satisfied customers in the area. Free estimates are a particularly desirable feature, since you’ll want to get estimates from several companies.  Look for ratings from Angie’s List and Owens Corning.
