Generally roofs last around 15-20 years but not without proper maintenance by a professional Mangonia Park roofing company. Read on to know more about how to take proper care of your roof.
Roofing and weather are very much interconnected when to climb up and what material to use. Like you are in a dry climate then using a clay roof will keep your home cool. Clay tiles on a roof in a wet area will deteriorate fast. You can take suggestion from the contractor regarding the best material to use it for your roof.
If you are planning to climb up the roof to inspect a leak, make sure to go up with safety gears in place. Roof is some place where it is difficult to hold balance as it’s slippery. But if you are having a tough luck to find the exact location of the hole, take your garden hose and aim it at your roof. This is a great way to see if there’s a leak and you can also see where the leak is coming from.
And again, if you have decided it’s better that a professional do the job then ask for earlier work references from the shortlisted contractors. Give a call and get a review of the work done. If the roofing contractor cannot provide references then move on to another one. You may also move on to another, if he cannot answer to your basic questions like how many nails per shingle they use and what procedure they follow. For best results it should be more than 3 nails per shingle.
Before finalising, get copies of the warranties on offer, estimates for the cost of the project in writing, license and insurance so that there is no disagreement about the terms later on. See to it the contractor gives you a typed bid for the job, it proves his professionalism and the will finish on time. Before the completion of the roofing work, don’t pay the full amount. Give only an advance token amount. Also check that they are part of any industry associations or not.
Your home is one of your assets and when you will want to sell the place, it should worth more. Therefore, you can use architectural shingles that are great alternative roofing material. These types of shingles are much more aesthetically pleasing, and they also last longer too.
Be careful when the job is being done. Inspect every material before, during and after the work is done. Shingles tend to crack up when they are nailed in and it may lead to costly repairs later on.
As said earlier, it is very important to maintain the roof to last his entire lifespan. Keep these in mind to take care properly.
