The old adage is “Out of sight, out of mind”, and that is particularly applicable when it comes to roofs. Our homes are one of our biggest investments and we go out of our way to make sure they are well-maintained, but the roof doesn’t usually get the attention it deserves. It is an integral part of your home’s structure and provides protection from the elements, but since we can’t see what condition it’s in, it doesn’t often cross our minds. All it takes is one small leak to start the process of weakening support beams, rendering insulation useless, and causing damage to ceilings. This is why it’s important to have experienced, professional roofers in Aurora, IL do a complete and thorough inspection of your roof on a regular basis. With the heavy rains and snows, wind, hail, heat, and cold, our part of the country experiences annually, roofs don’t last as long as they do in other areas. The earlier you can catch a potential roof problem, the easier it will be to repair, and the less that repair will cost.
If an inspection of your home’s roof reveals that there are issues that need to be addressed, a roofing expert will explain what they are, and how they can best be dealt with. He will also be able to give you an estimate of what the project will cost. If it’s just minor damage, a repair can be done relatively quickly and inexpensively. More serious damage might require a re-roof, where a new layer of roofing material is installed over the existing one. If your roof damage is severe, such as from a strong storm, your roofers in Aurora, IL may need to do a tear-off, where all of the old material is removed and replaced with a new roof, from the sheathing on up to the shingles and flashing.
