Keeping your roof updated and maintained is no easy task, but it’s a necessity for homeowners who want to ensure their home and the contents inside are protected from the elements. When roof leaks happen, your home could end up seeing extensive water damage if they are not quickly addressed.
That’s why when a Logan, WV homeowner came to us requesting a new roof, we hurried on over to install a new roof before their old, worn-out roof cost them more money.
The old roof had been on the home for quite a while and had recently seen some damage from a thunderstorm. Shingles on the roof looked like they were at the end of their life. In our area of West Virginia, we receive around 45 inches of rain per year and 28 inches of snow per year. That’s a lot of precipitation for an older roof to try and fight off, which is why we recommended a total roof replacement to be done for this Logan, WV homeowner.
For this particular project, we opted to install a metal roof. Metal roofing presents many perks over other available roofing materials. The perks of metal roofing include:
It is important to note that metal roofs do cost more than traditional shingle roofs, so make sure that is factored into your home improvement budget.
If metal roofing isn’t installed properly, it can lead to complications down the line. Metal contracts and expands in the heat and thus requires certain types of fasteners around it. There are also precautions that need to be taken to prevent leaks from getting through and certain ways to install the screws that attach panels to your home.
For these and many other reasons, it’s vital to hire an experienced contractor like True Builders of WV who can put the roof on correctly in order to best protect your investment in your roofing and your home.
