Winter Roofing Tips from BACK Construction

Is it time for roof repair? Snow, ice, and accumulating slush… these are just three of the dangers your roof can face this wintry season. Older buildings can see extensive damage, or even collapse, due to snow and ice.

Roof Repair Steps

There are a lot of steps professionals go through when they’re checking out a roof, to determine whether or not you’re due for a roof repair. Here are a few:

[bs_well size=”sm”]

  • Get up there! Get a closer look at your roof, rather than a look from ground level. When completing roof repair, you need to know what you’re working with.
  • The roofing professionals at BACK will check for missing, cracked, or broken shingles. Over time, damaged shingles result in leaks, which can cause even more structural damage to your house. If you catch the issue early, you can save yourself time and money.
  • Check metal areas of your roof for warps, holes, or tears. The metal areas are referred to as ‘flashing,’ and are there to prevent leaks at roof joints, vent pipes, and around chimneys.
  • If there are trees near your roof, trim them back. When weighed down with ice and snow, they could add extra, unneeded weight to your roof. Each year, roofs are damaged by branches breaking from trees.
  • Removal of debris, including dirt and dead leaves. If left alone, the dead leaves will rot, and mold will begin to grow. This is incredibly damaging to roofs.
  • Clean out the rain gutters. If the gutters are clogged up, water can back up onto the roof and freeze. This will, in turn, damage the roof.
  • Check for pest damage. Raccoons, bats, squirrels, and more can get into your attic through the roof, and damage it in the process. Flying insects, such as wasps, can also damage your roof.
  • Inspect the chimney and areas around it. It’s important that it’s unobstructed and in good shape – chimney fires can destroy roofs.

Enjoy Peace of Mind
 They removed some hardy board siding that had been exposed to lots of water and was rotten...Took old out, replaced with new, primed, caulked and painted all in one morning. Schon Holman was magnificent. He knew what he was doing, came dressed suiting the quality of work I expected, did a thorough, perfect job, left site immaculate and was professional in his conversation and demeanor. Would definitely use Schon and BACK again. 
 Today concludes my home updating experience with Back Construction. It is with gratitude and satisfaction I review Shohn and my kitchen transformation. There were many just in time process changes that needed Shohns' expertise and patient consideration. He approached them through an experienced eye and one by one sought a solution , never an excuse. This is a testimony to.his professionalism and attention to detail. Thanks Back Construction for choosing top quality staff. Thank you Shohn for taking care of me like you would your family. 
 Back Construction helped turn my rental property from the ugliest house on the street to one of the best-looking by designing and building a super-custom open gable porch roof to replace an outdated awning. The project was complicated by the need to work with multiple residents and me, the owner, but clear communication from start to finish made the process easier. They were conscientious about my budget without cutting corners on the quality, appearance, or service. 
 I was very pleased with Schon Holman who repaired a faucet incorrectly installed and repaired cabinet damaged by water. Back was quickly responsive to my request and adjusted original estimate when work was done. I would highly recommend Back. 
 Highly recommend Back Construction! They screened in part of our deck and built a pergola. The project went smooth from beginning to end. The sales manager and project manager were easy to work with and took everything into consideration. The work crew were very professional, on time and cleaned up daily. Our screened in porch has become our favorite part of the house! We will definitely be using Back Construction again. 
 I couldn't speak more fondly on my experience with Back Construction. We had the columns on our front porch repaired and we are extremely pleased with the workmanship. Schon Holman and Tom Gebhart were very professional.The Home was built in the 1800s and with the original columns still standing, the team took extra care in the repair and their preservation. They also were able to lift the porch and level out the roof which seemed like quite a task. Im very happy with the outcome. They even gave advice and information on the products they used for future reference. Thank you very much Back Construction. I will be recommending your work to others.
