6 Benefits of Hiring a Professional Roof Repair Contractor

Posted on May 22nd, 2017 by Applied Roofing Services

The past decade has created a whole new age of DIY (do it yourself). All you have to do is open up Google, ask the DIY genie about the specific task you want to do and you have step by step instructions about the task you’ve searched for. You might have saved hundreds or thousands of dollars in many cases but pulling out your ladders and climbing multistory buildings for roof inspection and repair is definitely not a DIY job.

Your roof is the most important part of your house as it protects the rest of the structure along with your family and possessions. Repairs related to your roof should be considered very seriously because you may miss out on precise signs of damage that a roof repair or replacement expert would never miss out. It’s always advised to look for a roof repair professional to handle these types of works as there are many advantages of working with a professional roof repair contractor.

Roof Repair Contractor

Here are some of the major benefits of hiring a professional roof repair contractor:

  1. Cost Effective
    Hiring professional roof repair contractors to fix up your damaged roof is really cost-effective. This is because these professional roofers get the roofing materials at lower costs than you can and they have the right tools to work with according to the situation. If you calculate the expense of buying the required tools, your expense would increase rapidly.

  2. Quality Material
    This is the main benefit of hiring professional repairing experts because they provide the best quality material to ensure that your repair lasts for a long time. They know which materials are of the best quality and best fit for your specific roof and they even have access to high quality materials at wholesale costs. On the other hand, you only have access to materials that are available at home change stores.

  3. Expertise Service
    Professional roofers have been working on different types of roofing projects for a long time, which means they are bound to give you excellent service without any mistakes. Their main goal is to ensure that your roof remains undamaged and safe for a long time once they have finished their work and they will perform this task with perfection using suitable approaches and products.

  4. Efficiency
    Professional roof repair contractors know the perfect way to inspect your roof and identify the cause of the issue as well as recognize other problems that can lead to future roof damage. They have the right tools, technology and equipment that will help them recognize what needs to be done in the most efficient and effective manner.

  5. Safety
    Accidents related to roof repairs are very common. Therefore professional roof repair contractors have invested their resources on safety gear to ensure the safety of their roofers. It’s advised to hire a professional roofer rather than purchasing specific safety equipment to repair the roof yourself.

  6. Provides Warranty
    Professional roofers provide warranty both on labor and the material they’ve used. This gives you peace of mind that the repair has been protected no matter what happens after the work is complete. If there are problems with your roof within the time frame, they will have it inspected and resolved without any extra charges.

Hiring a professional roof repair or replacement expert is much more beneficial than doing it yourself. They not only have the access to the right equipment, materials and supplies but they are also able to overcome any sudden challenge or issue which may be detected only after a detailed roof inspection.

9 Roof Remodeling Tips to Know Before Starting Renovation

Posted on February 8th, 2017 by Applied Roofing Services

The roof is the first thing people notice when they look at your house. There are chances that your roof can get damaged if you do not take proper care of it. You should always take care of your roof by keeping it in a good condition. A remodeling of your roof could be the best possible option to keep it going for years.

Normally, before you go for a roof remodeling, you have certain questions on your mind like-

  • How much budget will be required?
  • What materials are required?
  • Who can do the remodeling job better?

Roof Remodeling Tips

Here are 9 roof remodeling tips which you must know before starting the renovation work:

  1. Look and Style
    When you plan a remodeling of your roof, the look and style of the roof has to be impressive considering the average roof comprises 40 percent of a home’s visible exterior. A good looking roof simply increases the charm of your house.

  2. Inspection
    Inspect your roof using binoculars from a safe vantage point. Look for curling, cracking, missing shingles and areas which lack granular covering. You can observe your roof from inside as well. Use a flashlight to look for water stains that indicate a growing roof leak.

  3. Municipal Check
    You should check with your local municipal building department to check how many times it is possible to re-cover the existing roof with another layer of same materials. Some communities do allow more than two layers of roofing material but previous layer should be removed before installing the new one.

  4. Take a Picture
    Your contractor can take a digital picture of your house and show you the various renderings with different roofing materials.

  5. Detailed Proposal
    Your roofing contractor must send you a detailed proposal in which every small detail should be included such as the material type and its color, other materials to be used and the scope of work to be done, along with the deadlines for the project.

  6. Ventilation
    Go for attic ventilation to ensure a long and functional life for your roof. The ventilation requirement varies from place to place, the National Roofing Contractors Association normally recommends 1 square foot of free vent area for each 150 square feet of attic floor.

  7. Consider Roof an Annual Cost
    It will be better to consult three to four reputed contractors in your area for roof remodeling services and ask for an estimate and do not choose the lowest bidder. A roof is an important investment. Take annual roofing cost into consideration by dividing the total cost of the new roof by the life expectancy of the selected roofing material in years.

  8. Squares
    Roofing professionals often talk about squares which means the amount of shingles required to cover 100 square feet.

  9. Get Online Info
    Refer to the website of National Roofing Contractors Association which offers some useful resources to the homeowners such as roof check-up checklist, how to find quality roofing contractors and a database of contractors who can be searched through a ZIP code.

Follow these tips for a successful roof remodeling project and increase the value of your property.

Insulation Basics of Spray Foam Roofing You Should Know

Posted on September 14th, 2016 by Applied Roofing Services

Spray polyurethane foam is one of the most popular forms of insulation when it comes to roofing and protecting one’s home from the elements. It is easily applied, sets up quickly and will remain in place for long periods of time without deteriorating or breaking down.

Spray Foam Roofing

How Spray Foam Works
Spray foam is produced by blending two chemicals and then forcing the mixture through a heated hose directly onto the surface where the insulation is to be applied. The chemical reaction creates a liquid that is turned into expanding foam when it comes in contact with heat. As it passes through the hose, the foam expands and spreads out to cover the surface of the area to be protected.

Two Types of Spray Foam
There are two primary types of spray foam. The first type is extremely light and does not cover as much surface as stronger types of foam. This is known as open-cell foam. Closed-cell foam is dense, spreads more thoroughly and is much stronger than open-cell foam. This type of foam is more rigid and extremely durable. It is also more expensive.

Protects Against Interior Damage
Spray foam roofing and insulation is capable of controlling even the smallest of leaks. If the foam is applied correctly, it will prevent water, debris and wind from working its way through to the interior of the home. As the foam expands, it creates a protective coating that effectively seals any creases or weakened areas that may be present.

Spray foam roofing and insulation is effective at protecting both the interior and exterior of the home if it is applied correctly. While many people may want to do it themselves, hiring a professional is always the best option when dealing with strong chemicals.
