New Roof


A new roof is designed to last for decades — but that doesn’t mean you should completely ignore it. According to Angie Hicks, founder of Angie’s List, the roof should be regularly inspected to avoid costly damage.

“Inspecting your roof regularly will help you determine if there are leaks from your roof,” she told the station “You want to be sure to check a leak and fix it as quickly as possible, because if you don’t, it can lead to structural damage in your home, and also mold.”

What are the four signs to look out for? Hicks suggests the following:

  • Curling shingles
  • Broken shingles
  • Missing Flashing (aluminum or galvanized steel)
  • Areas where water may be pooling

Experts recommend having an inspection of your roof at least every five years. You should also always enlist the services of a licensed professional.

The best advise to hiring your roofing contractor is to make sure they are licensed and insured. You can check to see if they have any complaints filed against their company . Make sure the licensed qualifier actually works with the company and is not selling their  license to an unlicensed roofer for profit. Check to see how many years they have been in business.  Ask for a certificate of insurance and call the company to be sure it is still active.  A qualified roofing contractor will have many references.  A contractor with great referrals is a good place to start.
