roofing It’s no exaggeration that the roof is one of the most important parts of the home.  It’s literally the thing that covers you.  But roof problems can happen.  From mold to leaks to structural problems there are a lot of aspects to a roof that need maintaining and fixing throughout the life of the home. If you find that your roof needs repairing or just some maintenance needs to be taken care of, contact Mario Brothers Home Improvement to see how we can help you keep the integrity of your roof intact. Maintenance:

  • Gutters – By having clean gutters, this will allow the water to flow freely off your roof and away from the home. With clogged gutters you risk stagnant water which can cause mold and mildew to ice buildup which can cause structural damage or leaks from the roof.
  • Inspection – Checking on the roof to make sure there isn’t any ponding water or broken shingles can help keep your roof lasting a long time if dealt with early. Fixing a minor problem can go a long way to avoiding costly repairs in the future.

Repairs: Perhaps the biggest issue will be roof leakage.  Here are the major spots where roof leakage can occur:

  • Joints – Joints between the roof and the chimney or where two sloping spots meet are common places where leaks may begin.
  • Shingles – Broken or cracked shingles are prime spots for causing leaks. Sometimes really bad weather or just the wear-and-tear over the years can affect the shingles.
  • Flashing – These are components used to seal roof edges, perimeters, walls, drains and other areas where the roof covering stops. These can be spots where leaks can come through or, depending on the size, a rodent can sneak into the home.

If you want to have your roof checked out, contact the professionals at Mario Brothers Home Improvement.  We will be able to inspect your roof and the attic to ensure proper insulation and that no leaks go unnoticed.  Leaks that you don’t see can cause major damage such as wood rot or mold. From minor fixes to complete roof replacement, Mario Brothers Home Improvement can take care of your roofing needs in a timely and cost-effective manner so that you have a dependable roof over your head.
