Is Your Roof Ready for Winter?

Posted on September 13, 2013 in Uncategorized

Your home’s first line of defense against extreme weather is the roof. Have you looked at yours lately?

A roof is something you should be absolutely sure is in great shape.  If a professional thinks you should replace your roof instead of patching it, it’s likely you truly need the roof replaced.  Settling for a patch on a roof that needs to be replaced is simply asking for roof problems, and additional expenses, down the road.

Your first step to your new roof is to call a roofing professional.  A PJ Fitzpatrick, roofing is what we do.  In 2012 alone, we worked on over 1,400 homes.  We use the best roofing materials and stand behind our work for the life of your roof.

When we replace your roof, we don’t just tear off and replace shingles.  Our team leaders perform a thorough inspection of the site to ensure that the area around the home will not be damaged.  Then, after your old shingles are removed, our roofing specialists identify any issues that were hidden by the shingles.

These issues can include such things as:

  • Any place where water was trapped or leaked, which can cause wood damage and rot.
  • Anything that was not installed correctly by previous workmen, such as flashing, vents, or drip edges.
  • Inadequate roof tar
  • Areas of too little or too much ventilation

 

After all issues are resolved, the roofing crews complete the installation.  98% of our new roof installations are done the day we start installing, so you are inconvenienced as little as possible.

When you’re deciding on your new roof, you’ll have a lot of choices. You can choose to upgrade your shingle style to change the look of your home.  PJ Fitzpatrick offers several colors and styles of shingles.  We even offer cool roof technology shingles that qualify for an energy tax credit.

Other roof services that you may choose for installation or repair as part of your new roof include:

  • Roof leaks
  • Roof ventilation
  • Skylights and sun tunnels
