New Year’s Resolutions – Let’s Start at the TopBy
It’s that time of the year again when we all make those “over-the-top” resolutions, but let’s face it, we hardly ever stick to the plan. We make these resolutions to better ourselves but what about our foundations? No, I’m not talking about the foundations of our morals, but the foundations that make up your home.
Speaking of foundations, let’s start at the top with the roof. Normally, everyone forgets about the roof until that fateful night of stormy weather when you come home to find a huge leak and water pouring from your ceiling and walls. This damage could have been avoided if you had your roof inspected (and saved you from paying one hefty price, let alone avoiding mold from the water damage).
Winter in Phoenix is the perfect time to devote to the roof. The main reason?…the weather. Let’s face it, no one wants to go outside in this Arizona heat, especially on one’s roof. Trust me, I had to reroof a house last summer and the heat was unbearable times a thousand! Also, cooler weather leads to lower prices, which leads to happier customers.
So having your roof inspected before monsoons (or haboobs) might save you lots of money and agony. If your roof is not up to par, these conditions may lead to extensive damages. Make sure to keep an eye out for roofs 10 years and older as they should be inspected for damages or defects. For flat roofs and shingle roofs, check for wear and damage; and for tile roofs, check for cracked tiles and underlayment condition (that’s the tar paper for those who don’t know).
Leaking or not, this is the perfect time to get your roof inspected…the weather is ideal, it’s free, repair or replacement prices are cheaper, and you’ll be happier in the long run!
