Roof Damage & Roofing Repairs In Hanover, PA
Roof damage is a fact of life. However, major damage can be prevented through regular roof maintenance and repairs. It is highly recommended that you have your roof checked at least two times a year for damage. Once after the winter months have subsided and then once again after the summer months. The harsh temperatures, heavy precipitation and other foreign contaminates that come with these seasons can really play havoc on your roof.
After your inspection, making sure to repair the problem areas that have been identified will ensure that a single shingle being damaged does not turn into a major patch job, or even worse, having to replace the entire roof! If gone untreated that one shingle can cause the materials used under the shingles to endure elements they were not intended to face. This in turn will effect the structural integrity of the other materials near the damaged shingle causing more damage and possible leaks. Leaks are all the way around bad because of the possibility of water damage and mold inside the home!
