OK, that’s a rhetorical question. However, many businesses and homeowners will let this opportunity pass without action. Many will regret it later when missing shingles and cracked caulking allows melting snow and ice to drip down into the attic.
Winters, particularly in Minnesota and other Great Lake areas, can be brutal on roofs. Please consider that your roof is what protects everything underneath it from the elements.
Melted ice and snow leaking into your attic can cause support beams to crack and loadbearing supports to shift without even a hint of what is going on until spring or later after a lot of the damage is done.
A simple roof inspection could prevent many of the seemingly insignificant problems from becoming expensive repairs. Our roofing technicians could spot potential problems and apply a simple fix. That’s priceless. What’s more, the inspection is free, and many repairs are inexpensive procedures.
Accumulated snow and ice on your roof do not appear to be a problem, and in most cases, it’s not. However, when the sun comes out and those melt, the water seeps down through cracks and holes left by missing shingles or roof sealant, then problems start.
Those leaks left unattended start the growth of mold and mildew, which could lead to respiratory illness for your family.
Some wind damage to your roof cannot be predicted or prevented, but a roof inspection could locate possible moss growth problems and limbs extended over the rooftop. A little preventive maintenance and corrective measures will ensure some minor issues don’t become major problems. A healthy roof is weather-resistant and energy-efficient. The professionals at Van Horn Construction are your source of peace of mind during the winter storms.
