All the ghosts and goblins are nestled away as the holiday season is quickly approaching. The fall is a great time for a roof inspection before the cold weather and snow start to fall. Prevention is a great way to save money on your roofing needs if you fix the small problems fast before they lead to bigger harms and leaks. The cost can be substantially smaller for a roof repair than to get a new roofing system installed on your home. If your shingles are cracked, blown off, curled up, or even just damaged ice dams can easily damage your roof more allowing water to melt into your home.

If you are unaware of what an ice dam is it is when your attic temperature is above freezing this causes your roofing system such as shingle heat up and melt the snow. Once the water reaches the cooler eves it will freeze again, as the roof heats up more and the cycle continues causing more and more water to pool. The pools of water may then back up into your shingles leaking into your attic, down exterior walls causing damage to your insulation.

  • Fall is also a great time to take advantage of the end of the year manufactures rebates that may be offered by Weathershield Roofing and GAF shingles to help you save money on protecting your biggest investment, your home. Taking advantage of those GAF manufacture rebates also gives you peace of mind that your family will be safe and warm for the holiday season because if your roof is bad, it is less effective on keeping the heat in your home, poor insulation is one of the main causes of that. Give yourself some peace of mind and call Weathershield Roofing at (402) 766-3776, tell them your issue, and ask for some advice. It’s free!
