Spring is finally here which means it's time to start thinking about tackling those spring maintenance projects for your home and this includes your roof!

Strong winds can wreak havoc on your roof and it's important to always check your roof for damage after a storm occurs. Today, our roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks has a few things for you to consider after a bad storm!

If you notice that your roof is missing any shingles don't wait to call your trusted roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks because leaving your roof exposed to the elements can cause serious damage to the interior of your home.
