Are you in need fo quality roof repair?

Water You Talking About?

Living in Louisiana, water is second nature to us. But the same doesn’t go for our homes. Eventually, water can wear down your roof and cause some serious damage. Especially when there’s a storm. And, of course, storms can happen both in and out of hurricane season, so we must always be ready. 

That being said, what does water damage look like? Of course, one great way is to see moisture or dripping actively happening. But it’s not always easy to see this. Take a look at your walls and look around for any mold or mildew. After all, water damage isn’t always quick. Sometimes, it’s a slow process that builds over days, months, or even years. If you see any indication of water inside your roof, it’s time to give us a call.

On the other hand, storms can also cause damage with debris or even falling trees. If it hasn’t happened yet, we suggest you remove any trees that could threaten your home, especially if they are dead or damaged. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Even worse, the damages caused by debris and trees could even warrant an entire roof repair if the damage is too extensive. 

Age Isn’t Just a Number

Another big factor is simply the age of the roof. Many roofs can last decades as strong, protective barriers. However, if you live in an older home that hasn’t seen any repairs in a while, it may be time for a visit from our specialists. With wood, rot can set in and possibly spread to other parts of your home. On the other hand, the sands of time could also affect your shingles, pressing the need for new ones as your roof is now receiving damage from the outside world. There are many signs that show it’s the proper time for roof repair. But it’s up to you to call in the specialists. 

Of course, with age as a factor, it may just be time for a full roof replacement. Give us a call and our specialists can discuss the next steps with you.
