Many of our best customers have realized the importance of having yearly home maintenance performed to protect the investment they’ve made in their roof. Think about it… when was the last time you had your roof serviced? During its lifetime, even the best roof is subject to a host of injustices.
The number one nemesis to a roof is climate change. Throughout a typical season in the Baltimore Metropolitan area, a roof will go through several rapid temperature changes. In the winter season, winter, snow, ice and sleet will pound your roof. Tree branches, made heavy by the freezing rains, will break off and come crashing down on your roof. The melting snow will begin to run through your gutters and downspouts, only to freeze again overnight, which may cause your gutter system to freeze and then burst apart.
And in the summer, the extreme heat generated from the sun’s rays will cause your roof to fade, dry out and become brittle. Heavy summer rains and afternoon thunderstorms will cause branches and leaves to fill and clog your gutters. Eventually they will overflow and the rainwater will run down the side of your home.
These extreme climate changes season after season test the limits of even the very best roof. And as each season passes, minor problems may develop. Left unaddressed, these minor problems can quickly deteriorate into major roofing problems.
We have several programs to help you identify and repair the little problems before it’s too late. Our programs provide you with the peace of mind of knowing you have a safe and secure roof system throughout all the seasons for years to come.
