Santa's Landing Pad: A Roofing Blog

Why do you need a strong roof on your home? To support Santa's sleigh, of course! In a more realistic sense, however, a strong roof is important for your home's protection. It keeps the wind and rain outside, and it also insulates your home against the chill of winter and the heat of summer. Most people think of roofs as being made from shingles, but roofers can make a strong roof from slate, tile, metal, or an array of other materials, too. We hope that as you read this roofing blog, you gain a lot of knowledge about the profession and about roofs in general.

The Roofing Contractor's Guide To Help Repairs, Renovations, And Improvements

When it comes time to do repairs to roofing, you may want to plan completely renovating the roof. The problem may begin with you needing roof repairs, but then, you discover you are going to need a replacement soon. This is a good opportunity to invest in renovations and improvements to the roof design. The following roofing contractor's guide to repair, renovations and improvements will help you with your project:

Addressing Issues With Wear and Damage

There are a lot of areas where poor roof design and features can cause excessive wear. This is common in areas like eaves and valleys where the roofing is vulnerable to problems like ice dams. Talk to your roofing contractor about problem areas that need to be repaired and improvements that will help to prevent future damage due to wear.

Energy-Efficient Roof Improvements

When you install a new roof on your home, there are also a lot of things that can be done to reduce energy loss. First, you may want to consider premium materials that improve the thermal barrier of the roof. There are also options like cool roof systems, which are white or lighter-colored materials. Cool roofs reflect UV radiation from the sun to help keep your home cool during the summer months.

Adding Attractive Roof Details

There are a lot of attractive details that can be added to your home with a new roof. You may want to consider remodeling features like a covered porch area, or changes to the roof structure to give your home a more attractive design. You can talk to the roofing contractor about changes that they can do to make the design of your home more attractive with the right features. If you want, you can take a picture of the existing roof, and print it on white paper to draw some of the features you are considering. Drawing the features will help you visualize what these details will look like.

Additional Improvements for Roof Renovations

There are also many other improvements that you may want to consider for your home during the renovations. First, you may want to consider improvements like installing better roof vents and improvements to the attic insulation. You may also want additional improvements with your new roof, such as adding gutters with rain collection. Talk to your roofing contractor about the extra work they can do for you when installing the new roof on your home.

When it is time to do major roof repairs, consider these options for renovations and improvements with a roof replacement. If you need help with renovations to your roof, contact a roofing contractor and talk to them about some of these solutions.
