Keep Your Gutters Cleaned Out and Maintained this Fall.

Image
Fall is in full swing which means that it's time to start on your fall home maintenance checklist if you haven't already. The leaves will begin to change and start falling off the trees very soon. Maintaining your gutters during the fall when the leaves start falling is extremely important and can help extend the life of your Lake of the Ozarks roof. In today's blog, we'd like to share with you some tips for your fall gutter maintenance.


Cleaning Your Gutters
One of the most important fall home maintenance tasks is cleaning out your gutters. It's also one that could easily be overlooked.

Cleaning your gutters twice a year is one of the best things …

In today's blog, our owner/operator, Ben Krokson, would like to inform all homeowners of the dangers of some roofing companies that take advantage of homeowners through insurance claims. See what Ben Krokson has to say below!



 If you are in the market for a new roof due to any kind of storm damage, we advise that you be very careful when dealing with other Roofing Companies around the lake area. These other Roofing Companies are only giving bids if you have an Insurance Claim. They will hound you for your Insurance paperwork and if you don’t supply it to them they won’t provide you with a bid. 
The reason they do this, is because they don’t know how to bid a roof without the Insurance Company doing most of the work for them. Then if the roof isn’t bought they will claim that the Insurance Company is no…
