Ice Dams

Even though it might not look like it, the ice damming is not a roofing issue. It is a problem of an attic space. More precisely, it is caused by not adequate attic space insulation and / or ventilation. When attic gets too warm during the winter time it will generate damaging freeze and thaw cycle which causes the snow on the roof to melt first and then to refreeze. The destructive ice builds up and backs the water back up into the house. If you are one of the homeowners experiencing this issue it is important to let our representative know about it and ask him to inspect your attic and your ventilation. Very often the permanent fix to the problem can be done only during the full roof replacements. But sometimes we might be able to fix the problem quite easily.

Preventive Roof Maintenance

Many roof warranties require ongoing care. You might not realize that the warranties do not cover routine maintenance but put an obligation on the building owner to keep good maintenance program.
Also, if you want to extend your roof’s life, regular maintenance might be a must. A building is only as good as its roof. Your roof is as good as the care you provide for it. A good preventive program can help you save a lot in unnecessary, costly repairs. Regardless of who installed your roof we can help you keep it.
