April showers bring…storm damage. Heavy rain showers can wreak havoc on your home. Whether it comes in one big downpour or several small ones, rain can cause a lot of destruction, especially on the roof of your home. Other areas can be affected too, like your gutters and siding. If the damage isn’t corrected, a whole lot of problems can follow.
When hail comes down, your roof takes a beating. Hail can knock your shingles loose and even cause holes in the shingles or the entire roof. Siding, windows and gutters can suffer too. If your location has experienced a hail storm, it’s a good idea to have a professional out to assess your home for damage.
Wind can blow roof shingles off, cause shingles to curl and break, and can damage other areas of your home as well. Strong winds can blow objects onto your house and roof, like tree limbs and debris. Windows are often damaged by objects during wind storms, too.
Snow and Ice
Severe winter weather conditions can be grueling on your home. Snow can easily cause extra weight on your roof. Ice can break windows and clog gutters. Even when the snow melts, you’re not out of the woods yet. Melting ice and snow can cause erosion and also reveal the signs of any damage the winter season left behind.

The biggest issue with roof damage is often, you don’t even know it’s there. Most people don’t get up on their roofs very often. Even if you do go up to inspect, such as after a hail storm, a fair amount of roof problems cannot be found by inexperienced people. That’s where we come in. We’ll come inspect your roof as a complimentary service.
Here are some things we’ll be looking for:

Working on your own roof repairs puts you and your family at risk. A faulty roof poses dangers such as cave-ins, flooding, structural damage, mold issues, electrical fires and many other possibilities. Leave the dangerous work to the professionals. We are on top of your roofing needs.
The purpose of gutters is to protect your home from the elements, namely rain and other water sources. Run-offs from your roof can cause a wide array of problems. Even when you have gutters, they may fail to work due to a number of issues like:
- Clogs from dirt, debris and leaves.
- Ice blocks that stop them from draining properly.
- Severe weather damage
- Hail damage
- Heavy winds that often blow twigs, limbs and other objects into them.
- Normal wear and tear and aging that causes them to fail or need replacement.
- Improper installation, causing them to fail or function improperly.
- Low quality workmanship or faulty materials
- Ladders and other things placed against them, causing stress issues.Gutters that are in need of repair or replacement can cause a world of problems. When water cannot be channeled from your roof properly, your roof can actually cave in from the pressure. In addition, you may experience:
- Electrical damage due to wet wires and outlets
- Bowing of your roof
- Curling or cracked shingles
- Foundation issues
- Lawn and garden problems
- Mold and mildew
Not all gutter damage can be seen by those who don’t know what to look for. Especially if you have experienced severe weather lately, chances are your gutters may have suffered some damage.
Don’t get caught off-guard. We are gutter experts. Let us take a look at your gutter system and if you need repairs or a complete replacement, we’ll give you a free quote at no obligation.
Siding is a wonderful thing. It looks nice and requires little up-keep like painting and brick repair. But, sometimes siding gets damaged due to severe weather. Hail can take chunks out. Wind can blow limbs, even trees, into your siding. Cracking, chipping and breaking are the three most common siding problems.
Depending on the age of your home, it’s possible your siding is so aged, it needs to be replaced. Whatever your siding needs, we are here to help. We’ll make the process painless. We have professional, skilled workers and use top-quality products so we do siding right.
Don’t pay outrageous utility bills because your insulation is lacking. Keep the warm air in and the cold air out in the winter, and the cool air in and the hot air out in the summer. We work with a variety of insulation types to insure your comfort. We will even assess your insulation and make a recommendation based upon our findings. Some issues with insulation that may arise are:
- Water damage from leaks
- Aging material
- Cheap insulation that is not functioning properly
- Poor quality installation of the insulation
- Mold from water trapped in insulation batts
- Rust and corrosion when insulation is near metal
Insulation is something you don’t want to mess with yourself. It’s itchy and has to be disposed of in a secure manner too. Plus, if it isn’t installed properly, it will be a waste of time and money. You will need a professional to make sure the job gets done right. We are just a call away.
Often times when you have an issue, such as a roof leak, the inside of your home is damaged as well.
