4 Benefits of Having a Professional Roof Inspection After a Storm

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.

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.
