6 Common Problems Affecting Metal Roofs

Metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular among homeowners for several reasons. The main reason is the longevity of metal roofs. With proper maintenance, this tough and durable roofing material can last up to 50 years or longer. Metal roofs are also very energy efficient, can prevent the spread of fire and the material is easily recyclable. However, as with any type of Lake of the Ozarks roof, they can be affected by the elements. While all roofs can suffer wear and tear, here are 6 common problems you can find with metal roofing.

1. Leaking. 

When not installed properly, your metal roof could have gaps, allowing water to seep through. Even if you find just a small leak, it can become a much bigger problem if you don't address it right away. If you notice a leak, contact a roofing professional right away. Ignoring the leak will only end up costing you more money for your metal roof repairs at the Lake of the Ozarks.

2. Punctures and Tears. 

Due to all the foot traffic, tears and punctures often occur during the construction of the roof. Caulking is often used as a temporary fix. The best way to reduce tears and punctures to your metal roof, is allowing only a roofing professional access to the roof.

3. Blow-Offs. 

Another problem that can occur from a metal roof not being installed properly is a blow-off. If the flashing isn't attached well, there can be open seams and gaps that result in parts of the roof blowing off. You should have regular roof inspections at the Lake of the Ozarks to make sure there are no problems.

4. Loose Seams. 

Depending on the weather, metal roofs will expand and contract. This movement can cause screws to loosen and seams to separate. If this problem isn't addressed right away, the roof's underlying structure could become damaged from condensation and water buildup around the stacks.

5. Water Collection. 

When water collects on a roof, it results in pressure. This can lead to leaks and other problems. You can avoid expensive roof repairs by checking your roof and clearing any pools and puddles you find.

6. Rust and Corrosion. 

If your metal roof has not been sealed with a non-corrosive agent, it could begin to rust. Rain, snow and sleet can cause severe corrosion. A waterproof coating can help you prevent dealing with a metal roof repair.

While there are numerous ways to avoid major roofing repairs, the most important thing you can do is have your roof inspected on a regular basis. Above & Beyond Roofing offers FREE roof inspections at the Lake of the Ozarks! As long as you take car of your metal roof, you'll be able to enjoy it for a very long time.

9 Unique Valentine's Day Date Ideas

Valentine's Day is just 2 days away! Do you have your plans yet? While dinner and roses may be your typically Valentine's Day celebration, consider mixing it up this year. Just like there are hundreds of gift options, there are endless date options as well. Above & Beyond Roofing brings you 9 great ideas for a unique Valentine's Day date!

1. Scavenger Hunt

Going on a scavenger hunt together can strengthen your bond. You'll be able to laugh and play together, so much more fun than that boring dinner you have every year. You could hunt for random things around town or make a plan of things you would need for the perfect Valentine's date. Work together to find the items and then enjoy the evening together with your findings.

2. Homemade Meal

The restaurants are going to be crowded, so why not stay in and prepare a meal for that special someone. A romantic candle lit dinner just the two of you will be much better than waiting forever in a busy, loud restaurant.

3. Plan a Getaway

While a vacation may take time to plan, a simple weekend getaway is something you can decide to do last minute. You don't have to go far, but just getting out of the house for awhile and spending some quality alone time can bring the two of you closer together.

4. Spa Retreat

Whether you choose to go to an actual spa or create a spa like atmosphere at home, everyone loves to be pampered. If paying for a trip to the spa isn't in your budget, you can easily have a spa day at home. Take turns giving each other massages. You can even do facials at home.

5. Picnic at Home

If you don't feel like cooking or going out for dinner, order from your favorite take-out restaurant. Then have a picnic on the living room floor. After dinner you can curl up and watch a movie together. Watching something together at home is much more romantic than going to a movie theater with a hundred other people.

6. Relive Your First Date

Take it back to where the romance started. Go to the same place you went on your first date, where the same types of clothes and talk about the same topics. This will be fun to see how each of you remember that first date.

7. Do a Craft Project

Make something together. You can buy a couple canvases and paint each other a picture. Or go to the local thrift shop and see if there is something you can renovate for your home. Do-It-Yourself projects are great for spending time together.

8. Breakfast in Bed 

There's no better way to start the day than with a delicious breakfast. Get up early and make your spouse a nice breakfast. You can curl up in bed and enjoy it together. If you don't have anything to do that day, you could even stay in bed all day!

9. Do Something Out of the Ordinary

Is there something you've been wanting to try, maybe ice skating, rock climbing or salsa dancing. Choose something you both can enjoy together and wouldn't normally do on a regular day. Make the date special.

6 Steps to Animal Proof Your Roof and Home

When was the last time you inspected your home for deteriorated trim and fascia boards, holes in the attic vents or an open chimney on your Lake of the Ozarks roof? All these areas present an opportunity for wildlife to get into your home! Wildlife experts at the Humane Society recommend assessing the condition of your home a couple times a year to keep wildlife intrusions and other problems at bay. A few simple steps can help keep unwanted visitors out of your home!

1. From the Ground Up Check the Foundation. 

Check the foundation for any openings and signs of animal activity where pipes, vents and cables exit the home. Look at places where different types of building materials come together. Window wells, dryer exhaust vents, thresholds and gaps in brick or siding can all provide possible entryways. If you find holes smaller than a few inches, those can easily be caulked, stuffed with copper mesh or filled with expandable foam. Larger openings, however, should be repaired to original condition.

2. Check the Roof, Siding and Trim Board. 

From the outside or from a ladder, look for loose vent screens, warped siding, trim board that is deteriorated and pulled away from the wall or roof holes. If you think you've found some spots on your roof that need repaired, contact your Lake of the Ozarks roofer for a FREE inspection.

3. Inspect the Attic Thoroughly. 

Inspect attics with a flashlight for any signs of animals. Look for droppings, signs of chewing and nesting material. Pay attention to the intersection of roof and trim, and any gable or exhaust vents. Often times, these are covered with light bug screens that won't stand up to squirrels and raccoons. If a hole is found, assume that an animal is present and do not seal it up! You want to make sure that all animals are gone first. Turn off attic lights and look for outside light leaking in, which will lead you to possible entry points.

4. Test for Animals. 

As mentioned above, don't seal any holes until you know there are no creatures present. You can test an opening by stuffing the hole loosely with a paper towel and waiting to see if it gets moved. After three days of mild weather, if they paper hasn't moved, you should be safe to go ahead and seal it up. If the weather is inclement, beware of animals that may not come and go in those conditions. You may need to extend your test if the weather is bad. If there's a possibility of bats, use caution because they won't push through the paper and they are hard to see. You may consider calling an animal control specialist if you suspect an animal in your attic.

5. Check Around the Chimney. 

Start by checking inside by shining a light up the flue, looking for animal signs on the damper and smoke shelf. Check the chimney flue from the roof to make sure no animals are present. You may want to call a chimney sweep to do this for you. Once all is clear, you should install an animal-proof chimney cap.

6. Trim Trees and Brush. 

Keep your branches trimmed six feet away from your house to not only limit access to wildlife, but to prevent damage to the roof that may allow animal entry in the future. If you suspect that damage may have already been done to the roof, contact Above & Beyond Roofing to check it out for you.

By following these steps now, you can prevent costly Lake of the Ozarks roof repairs. Even if you do need some repairs, you may not have to replace the entire roof. Above & Beyond Roofing, your locally owned residential and commercial roofing specialist, can come inspect your roof for free and let you know what the repairs will entail. The company has more than 100 years' experience so you'll know you're in good hands!
