Quality Roofing is not a luxury

Leaky roofs mean leaky homes

The roof of a home is like a keystone – if it fails, the rest of the structure will soon follow.

Leaking is one of the most common problems with roofs, especially in New England. Leaking roofs allow water to reach other parts of the home where it’s not welcome – ceilings, insulation, and the joints that hold your home together are all susceptible to roof leaks.

The New England climate – with its extreme temperatures and frequent precipitation – wreak havoc on roofs throughout the region. That’s why having someone who knows the region is crucial to coming to a lasting roofing solution.

Avoid Expensive Leaking Roof Problems

Leaks are the most common problem, but for reasons beyond the leak.

A leaking roof allows water to get into the places it’s not supposed to be. When water is able to drip inside your walls, it can break down drywall and slate – this becomes a dangerous problem as it affects the structural integrity of your walls.

Leaking water also causes rot. Rotting wood in the framing of your home can lead to dangerous instability. That’s why maintaining your roof with the best professionals is crucial.

The repairs for drenched drywall and rotting wood frames is astronomical. Almost no family is prepared to take on the cost of rotting wood, but those costs can be avoided with proper roof maintenance and repairs done right.

Lower Your Utility Bills

Cracking holing, and separation from the walls is another common problem with roofs.

If a crack or hole allows air to flow in and out of your roof, that means air from your heater and air conditioning system are also flowing out. As can be expected, your home’s temperature systems will have to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature, which increases the cost of heating and cooling your home.

Increased Buyer’s Appeal 

A new or properly maintained roof is an asset to any homeowner – for the potential homeowner, it is a godsend.

When buyers are looking at homes, they always want to know whether or not there are major repairs that will need to be done after buying the house.

If a potential buyer learns that the roof has recently been replaced, they’ll see purchasing your house as a more sound investment. In some cases, the asking price of a house can be increased because of a fresh roof.
