1. Your roof is at least 20 years old. Experts say that typical roofs most commonly last between 20 and 25 years. There are many factors that go into this, such as the age of your home, the condition of your ventilation, and how many layers of shingles have been installed. Check your records to see if you or the previous homeowners have documented the last time the roof was replaced or repaired. Even though your home might be older, roof work may have been done recentl…

Roof Color Questions

Choosing a color for your new roof at the Lake of the Ozarks is not only a necessary, but an exciting element to add to your new home. There are several things to keep in mind when choosing a color for your roof, and Above & Beyond Roofing is here to help. We’ve put together a checklist of questions to ask yourself before you settle on your new roof’s color.

Also consider whether your home is positioned in the shade, in the sun, or both. The color of your roof will look d…

4 Benefits of Having a Professional Roof Inspection After a Storm

Image
It's that time of year where thunderstorms are frequent in mid-Missouri. Between heavy rain, hail and wind, severe weather can easily impact your roof. In today's blog, we discuss some of the benefits of a professional roof inspection at the Lake of the Ozarks following a storm.

1. To Find Damages You Can't See from the Ground. 
Storm damage to your roof isn't always visible to the naked eye, and especially from the ground. Getting up on a ladder and walking around your roof is quite dangerous, and it's best to leave the roof inspections to the professionals. They have the experience and expertise, knowing what to look for and how to properly walk on your roof without causing more damage.

2. To Save You Money in the Long Run. 
After a storm, it's easy to neglect seemingly minor repairs, but those issues can easily grow into bigger problems if not addressed. Not only can a timely inspection after severe weather catch storm damage, but it can also catch pre-exist…

While getting a new roof at the Lake of the Ozarks can be an exciting experience, it also means some changes for your family. Once the roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks arrives, your home becomes a work zone. Use the tips below to help prepare your home for their arrival.

1. Consider Your Family.

In addition, work zones are unsafe for children and pets. Be sure to let your children know what areas of the home or yard will be off-limits until the roof replacement is complete. You may even feel more comfortable sending the kids to grandma and grandpa's for they day while construction is underway.

2. Move Your Vehicles. 
Many of us are used to just parking in the driveway, but if you have a garage, be sure to pull your vehicles into it before the roof construction begins. You don't want dust and debris falling on yo…
