Your roof is one of the most important parts on your home. The roof works with insulation to keep heat from escaping in the winter. It also keeps your ceilings dry. The smallest leak can cause considerable damage to your plywood, interior sheetrock and insulation. Don’t wait until the damage is done, call Kevin’s Home Maintenance to discuss if it’s time for a new roof.

While manufacturers state most roof shingles will last 25 to 30 years, the harsh Vermont winters tend to age roofing materials more quickly. Expect to re-shingle your roof a minimum of every 15 years to prevent water damage to the plywood and tresses. Metal roofing lasts longer, but still needs periodic inspection.

Wind, heavy rain, snow and ice take a toll on a roof. You should check the condition of your roof yearly looking for loose, missing or damaged shingles. Also look for moss or lichen growth because they trap moisture causing the surface of a shingle to wear quickly. It’s important to remove moss from a roof without scraping off any of the granular surface of the shingle. A professional like Kevin gets the job done right.

Roofing is not a task every homeowner wishes to take on. You have to be comfortable on a roof, understand the correct way to lay singles and have the equipment available. Many districts have building codes that must be followed. When you need a new roof, hiring the professional services of Kevin’s Home Maintenance provides you with peace of mind in a job well done.
