The Importance of Addresssing Roof Leaks Quickly

The principle job of your roof is to protect your home from water and other weather. However, in some instances, water can still leak through.

Addressing Roof Leaks 
Roofing problems can be present long before you see any leaks. By the time a roof leak occurs, major roofing problems may already be developing.

4 Qualities to Look For in a Roofer Before Hiring

Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home; it protects everything inside from the elements. Therefore, hiring the right company to handle your roofing needs is important. Here are a few qualities to look for when choosing a roofing contractor at the Lake of the Ozarks to hire:

What is Roof Pitch? 
Roof pitch is a term that refers to the steepness (angle, slope or slant) of a roof. While some roofs are very steep, others are nearly flat. The slope of a roof is generally measured in fractions. The numerator refers to the height and the denominator refers to the width. For example, a roof slope measured at 5/12 means that there is a 5 foot rise in height for every 12 feet of width. For roofing purposes, the denominator will always be 12; you won't reduce it like you would a regular fraction. Average roof pitch will range from 4/12 to 8/12.
