When shingles from your roof fall from their adhesive backing or nails give out, they leave the insulating and adhesive layers open to the elements. The exposure can cause lots of problems that you’ll want to prevent.
There are many reasons why a homeowner may have a leaking chimney. Here are a few of the possible issues and what can be done to resolve them.
The materials and techniques companies use today in roof replacement and everyday residential roofing resulted from historic advances made since the beginning of civilization. Before we were able to mass produce shingles, humans had to build roofs out of whatever they could find.
Ja-Mar Roofing & Sheet Metal would like to take a second to go a little in-depth into each one of these historic types of roofs that led to the modern roof. Know a bit of history behind all of these different styles to see how far roofing has come.
A roof rat is a black rat that climbs that live in your attic. A standard roof rat’s size is 13 to 18 inches long. Some roof rats can also weigh up to 9 ounces.
They are excellent climbers and can get in through any opening. That includes any damaged roofs that may have open holes in the shingles.
If you find a roof rat, act fast. More roof problems could happen by more rats infiltrating buildings. Shingles, tiling, and more could be eliminated by this type of pest.
Over the years, Ja-Mar has dealt with many different roofing shingles types. Each shingle serves the same function of protection your home from the elements. However, they do it in vastly different ways.
Here are just a few of the types we have seen while in the field.
Your roof is locked in a constant battle with the sun. While rain, snow, and hail damage can wreck your roof, the one element that is always wearing your roof away is the sun. The heat and radiation cause the roof to fall apart over time. Without the proper knowledge, summer maintenance of your roof can feel like an uphill battle.
If you’re in the market for a brand new roof, you are probably a careful shopper. Looking around, getting estimates, checking records, reading reviews; getting the right kind of roof repair is crucial, especially when plunking down so much for an investment. When you get your roof fixed, it’s worth it.
