Roofing Inspections 101
Getting the most out of your existing or new asphalt shingle roof starts with having a roof inspection performed on your Rothesay, NB roof at least twice a year by a crew of professional roofers who specialize in roof leak trouble shooting. Don’t settle for just the average roofer to inspect your shingle roof. Many times a conventional roofer will overlook minor damages and request that you need a complete roof replacement. This is because it’s much easier and the roofer will get more money for the job. If you use an experienced roof repair trouble shooter, you can be sure that minor roofing problems are identified and repaired right away to prevent future roof repairs as well as ensure your existing shingles last as long as possible before the inevitable and expensive total shingle replacement is necessary.
Never climb on a roof without the proper training and safety equipment. You can easily spot the majority of costly roofing troubles safely from the ground. If you notice any of the following roofing problems on your Rothesay, New Brunswick home or business; don’t let damages get more expensive than they already are.

With the right maintenance plan in place, the occasional roof repair and complete roofing inspecting each year, you can prevent costly roof leaks before they have a chance to happen. A roof leak is going to cause a lot more than just a headache. Roof leaks leave stains on ceilings, puddles on floors and soaking wet drywall wherever water ends up. But that’s just the start. A leaking roof that has been left “as is” for more than 36 hours can easily begin to develop dangerous black mold, smelly mildew and wood rotting fungus right away. These problems are going to cost you a fortune in repairs as well as cause serious health risks inside of your Rothesay home or business. Whether you have the occasional drip from your ceiling or buckets of water are pouring into your structure, having an immediate roof repair performed is the only way to prevent expensive roof damages.

Look for the following signs of roofing troubles on your home or businesses roof. While it’s never a good idea to climb on a ladder yourself, it’s never a bad idea to keep your eyes peeled for any of these signs of roof disrepair as your walking or driving around the perimeter of your Rothesay, New Brunswick home or business. If you see any of these roofing troubles, don’t try to repair them yourself. Call a licensed, insured and experienced roofing contractor today to make the repairs.

Roof Leaks can be Hazardous to your Health
Rotting wood fungus, stinky mildew troubles and deadly black mold can all form inside of attic spaces, on drywall ceilings and behind walls. Within just 36 hours after water has infiltrated the structure, your indoor air quality can be ruined forever—or at least until the affected materials are removed and replaced with new ones. White wood fungus can destroy your structural components in just months. Mildew stains can bring smelly and musty odors into the home for good. If black mold is allowed to form, spores that are released into the air can cause serious respiratory problems and is a health hazard to those living or working within the structure. Black mold can grow on all wet surfaces, and can only be removed by replacing the affected materials.
