7 Ways Mother Nature Can Impact Your Roof 🌎

Image
A typical roof should last anywhere from 15-30  years depending on your choice of roofing material. However, sometimes mother nature has other plans and can impact your roof and cause the life of your roof to lessen. Read on to find out how mother nature can impact your roof!  1. Hail Even the smallest hailstones can damage your roofing shingles. Every strike from hail results in weakened shingles and granule loss. While it may not destroy all your shingles at once, it will gradually cause problems with each storm that hits. Weak or missing granules can lead to roof leaks. 2. Trees Whether a dying tree falls onto your roof or a storm causes branches to fly into your home, trees are a common culprit in roof damages. You'll want to be sure to trim back and branches that are close to your home and remove any dead tree limbs. 3. Moisture From water leaks to humidity, excess moisture on your roof can weaken it and cause problems. Mold can spread quickly on both the inside and outside of

Winter Roof Prep! ❄️

We know fall has just arrived, but the fall season is when you should start thinking about getting your roof ready for winter before it gets too cold! Yearly maintenance on your roof is one of the best ways to ensure your roof lasts for many years. Read on to get a few tips for prepping your roof for winter!    Winterizing Your Roof Eliminate any low-hanging tree branches and other vegetation near your roof.  Ice and snow can accumulate on trees and branches, weighing them down until they snap.  Save yourself some stress by trimming back your branches before a Winter storm hits. Check your roof for signs of pest infestation and check for weak spots that an animal might exploit in order to stay warm.  Mice, squirrels, and raccoons might see your home as a shelter from the cold winter weather and they can cause major damage if they get inside.  Remove leaves and other fallen debris from your roof and gutters.  During the Fall season, your roof can quickly become covered in leaves, acorns

Questions to Ask Yourself When Choosing a Roof Color

Image
When it comes time to replace your roof, one of the decisions you will have to make is your roofing color. A new roof can last anywhere from 12-30+ years depending on what type of material you choose for your new roof construction. When you put on a long-lasting roof, it's important to choose a color you will love for years to come. An easy way to choose your new roofing color is by asking yourself these questions below!  1. What is the climate like where I live? This may seem like an off-topic question, but it can be a major factor when it comes to choosing a roofing color. Temperatures during the summer months at the Lake of the Ozarks can soar, and you’ll want to keep this in mind. Certain colors can retain heat very well and end up heating up your attic and raising your HVAC bill. It’s been proven that the wood of your home underneath black shingles can get up to 10 degrees hotter than the wood under white shingles. That’s hot! Also consider whether your home is positioned in

What to Do About These 3 Common Roofing Issues

Image
 Storms, debris, excessive heat, and even normal wear and tear can cause issues with your roof. When you notice a roofing issue, knowing what you should do to fix them may not be obvious. Today, our roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks would like to go over a few common roofing issues you may encounter and what to do about them!  Punctures & Holes  There are a variety of things that can puncture your roof. Hail can cause punctures in your roofing material and wind can blow debris onto your roof, which can also puncture the roof. Wildlife could also be a source of damage to your roof. While storm damage could be highly visible, hail damage typically is not that noticeable. If left alone, continued wear and tear to that damaged spot can lead to bigger problems. From small punctures to big holes, roof punctures leave your roof and home vulnerable to the elements, which can lead to a variety of other issues. Be sure to have even the smallest of issues addressed as soon as possibl

4 Reasons to Install a Metal Roof!

Image
 When it comes time to replace your roof, one of the first things you will need to decide is which type of material you would like to have put on. You've got a few options for material, all of which have their pros and cons. This week would like to share with you a few of the benefits of installing a metal roof!  1. Metal Lasts a Lifetime.  When comparing roofing materials, metal wins on the longevity front. Most metal roofs will last a lifetime, even though they are usually warrantied for 50 years. Asphalt shingles typically need to be replaced every 25-30 years or so. While metal roofing is a larger expense upfront than asphalt shingles, when you spread the cost over the life of the material, a metal roof could end up being less expensive in the long run. 2. Metal is Extremely Durable.  When it comes to durability, you can trust a metal roof to hold up. Metal roofing can withstand harsh weather conditions better than other types of roofing material. Some metal roofs can sustain w
