This regular roof inspection will keep shingles from leaking and insulation from being damaged.
When it does become time for you to replace your roof, you want to be sure that you do it before the leaking and insulation wet problems occur. If your roof is over 20 years old or you see some problems in the shingles, you need to consult with us about Evergreen Construction Solutions to plan for when the best roof replacement time would be. If the issue is not a pressing thing like a leak or wet insulation, there are certain times of year that are better times to replace a roof.
Many contractors prefer to install a roof in the fall because it ensures that the roof will be strong during the winter weather. It must not be too cold, or the shingle adherents will not dry properly. You will want to make sure this is scheduled so that you protect your roof’s structure to prevent it from leaking and in order to protect what is under your roof – your insulation, your storage items, and… yourself!
