“Brian did an excellent job of replacing the roof on my house. The crew cleaned everything up well, and I am very happy with the look of my new roof!” – Ridgeline Customer
By the time you are stacking buckets on the floor to catch the rain, you are way past the time that just replacing the roof will be your only repair. Water is coming in at the low point of the roof, even though tiny holes, but the actual leak may be somewhere else.
What we can be sure of is that if you are seeing water dripping or you see water stains on ceilings and walls, you are in the “fix your roof fast” group. And you may need more help with replacing and repairing insulation, drywall, paint, etc.
We hope that nobody’s roof gets to that point. It’s important to check for leaking roofs as they can cause significant damage to the structure of your home. Some signs to look out for are buckling/curling shingles, algae and mold, damaged flashing, granules in the gutter, roof rot, and water stains on the ceiling.
If any of these signs are noticeable, the issue has probably had time to fester and may be larger than you think. Ridgeline Roofing will fix the problem before the damage grows.
We’ll assess for ways to prevent it from happening again. Keeping your roof safe and leak-free is our pride.
You need a new roof if…..
- shingles have curled edges
- shingles are cracked
- neighbors are getting new roofs
- algae/moss are growing on the roof
- missing granules
- granules are clogging your gutters
- missing shingles – they just disappeared at some point
- chimney flashing is coming up
- you are hearing drips
- light is coming through in the attic
- dark stains and streaks appear on the shingles
Sometimes these signs don’t actually mean you should replace your entire roof. There is a chance all you need is a simple fix that a professional can do for you, and we are here to do it!
There are so many beautiful choices for roofing that can have a major impact on the curb appeal and the longevity of your new roof. For help in choosing the best roof shingles, contact Ridgeline Roofing.
We’ll walk you through a variety of options that are best for your home and your budget. Then, our team of experts will come and install them quickly and professionally with as little disruption to your family as possible.
Making the choice on your roof comes down to what it is made of and color.
Materials can range from asphalt, clay, slate, wood, metal and impact-resistant shingles, each with their own advantage. Asphalt shingles are the most common because they are easy to install and cost the least. Metal Roofs offer style, colors and longevity.
Shingle colors should depend on a couple of factors, including climate, resale value and neighborhood rules. If you live in very sunny, warm areas you may want to consider lighter shingles that reflect more light than they absorb. The opposite is true for colder climates, where dark shingles are good absorbers of light and heat.
You will also want to consider the style of your shingles and whether they will increase the value of your home. This will depend on the type of home, but generally, more neutral-colored shingles are safest.
It’s almost important to see how your house fits in with surrounding houses, and if your neighborhood association has any rules concerning house aesthetics.
Roof Inspections & Maintenance
The fact is that most people do not need to be climbing around on a roof to inspect it for routine damage or maintenance.
It is just dangerous work for people without the right equipment to be up there. It also means that unlike checking for dripping faucets or paint smudges, homeowners can’t see the damage or see the potential need for repairs. It’s a roof! And it is just up there!
Routine roof inspections, just like the twice a year maintenance on your heating and air systems, are a great way to properly maintain your roof and prevent large-scale damages.
Ridgeline Roofing Company can set you up for routine inspections and maintenance to catch damage after strong winds or heavy rain.
