How to Express Your Essence Through Your Roof
Hitting an economic slump can make finding the money for advertising investments, especially in the construction industry, difficult. If you are facing a loss of business or decline of clients from economic issues, you may be wondering how you can reach out to new clients who need roofing upgrades or other commercial roofing services. If this sounds like you and your roofing company, here are three ways to promote your commercial roofing business and bring in more clients.
If you have been experiencing dripping water from your home's ceilings, you will want to work quickly to find the source of the moisture. Sometimes it takes longer finding where a roof leak is occurring than it does to do the actual repair. Here are some tips to use to help you pinpoint exactly where water is sliding in underneath your shingles.
Start In Your Attic
Go to your attic to look for areas of moisture on the ceiling.
Have you ever wondered why the wood shakes used for roofing always seem to be made specifically from cedar? Perhaps you've pondered how wood, a material that is usually known for being prone to rot and for attracting insects, could be a viable roofing material at all.
The answer to these quandaries lies in one simple fact: cedar has unique properties that make it an excellent choice – a better choice than other woods – as a roofing material.
It is easy to focus on maintaining your roofing material whether it be asphalt shingles, clay tiles, or metal panels. A less obvious repair arises when you have damaged flashing. In order to avoid leaks, you need to understand what flashing is, how it fails, and how to make repairs.
What Is Flashing?
Your roofing material—whatever it is— is designed to guide precipitation that falls on your roof down the roof surface, but what happens with water that falls on vent pipes, dormers, or chimneys.
If you notice that your roof is missing more than a few shingles after the most recent summer storm, you need to take action right away to address the problem. Here is what you should do:
Clean Up Any Debris Created By The Storm
Wait for the storm to leave your area. After the storm has left the area, walk outside and do a quick cleanup. Pick up any branches that the storm broke off your trees.
A couple of years after moving into my first home, I decided I needed a new roof. When I told the roofer that I wanted to express my essence, he asked if I wanted shingles or metal. However, I knew the idea could go deeper than that. For example, gardeners can put plants on their roofs, fashion gurus can match their roof to their home, those who crave extra space can make a roof patio, you can take cues from your favorite country, and there are thousands of other ways to express your essence. If this idea piques your interest, get comfortable and start reading. The posts in this blog are designed to inform you and hopefully guide you toward the perfect roof for you, your personality, your home and your family. My name is Kat. Thanks for reading!
