Roof Maintenance Extending Your Roofing Systems Life Every roof has an expected life span, with some lasting longer than others. Once it gets to the end of its life, even major repairs wont help much. While theres not a lot you can do with an old roof, professionalroofersknow proactive maintenance can make the roof last a long time. We take a closer look at how keeping a roof in good shape can extend its lifespan. Cleanliness Counts The most basic form of proactive roof maintenance is simply keeping the roof free of any debris buildup.

Whats The Perfect Color For Your Roofing? Your roofing contributes to around 40% of your homes frontage. The right color can really bring out the aesthetic appeal of your homes largest structure, so its important that you pick the right one. In this post, West Side Roofing Co. discusses how to pick the perfect color for your roof.

July 11, 2017 Category: Roof Repair

The Dangers of a Leaky Roofing System Leaks are arguably the most troublesome problems youll encounter with your roof. The risk actually stems from how deceptive they are; small leaks are difficult to spot and can quickly grow. Today, West Side Roofing Co. discusses the dangers of leaky roofing and how to address them properly. Small Leaks Need Immediate Repair As previously highlighted, a small leak can rapidly grown in size due to a combination of heat and existing moisture damage. Its even riskier if the leak is somewhere that you cant see on the surface level, such as when its located in the inner part of the roofing structure. It might seem like a waste spending money repairing a leak of insignificant size, but the cost of repairing a bigger leak is often triple that of preventive repair. Letting the leak grow in size encourages moisture to damage the structure of the roof. Our roofing contractors are skilled in identifying leaks and problem areas and addressing them before

Keep Your Roof Leak-Free: Reminders from Roofing Contractors Your roof is your primary protection from the elements. That means it should be structurally sound to prevent water from entering the house when it rains. If your roof has a leak, have it fixed as soon as possible to avoid bigger damage. Its even better if you can keep the roof leak-free. Roofers have some suggestions to do just that: Check for Broken Shingles. Broken shingles are one of the signs that your roof may be compromised. If you notice a piece of a shingle blown away from the roof, that means your roof may not be holding up well against strong winds and rain. This calls for a thorough inspection to check if you only need to replace the shingles or if you already have a leak problem underneath it. Contact us if a storm has just passed by your area, so we can inspect for storm damage and do the necessary repairs. Keep Gutters Clean. Gutters direct rainwater away from the roof to avoid ponding or pooling. If your

Solar Reflectance Index: The Guide to Choosing a Cool Roof Installing a cool roof can cut your energy costs while contributing toward a better environment. By lessening the demand for energy, it decreases carbon emissions that cause pollution. Furthermore, it doesnt store as much thermal energy as an ordinary roof.

Know Your Roof: All About Roofing Underlayment Your roofing system is your homes first line of protection against the elements, thats why its essential to maintain its best condition. To determine what your roof needs, it pays to understand the functions of its basic components. This includes the underlayment. The underlayment is a membrane installed on the roof deck. It acts as a secondary barrier to safeguard your roof from the elements while allowing the deck to release moisture. When water manages to seep through the shingles, this component prevents its infiltration to preserve your roofs integrity. Let West Side Roofing discuss its different types. Asphalt-Saturated Felt This is the most common type of underlayment applied on residential steep-slope applications. It is either made from organic or fiberglass substrate. It comes in two thicknesses, namely, 15- and 30-pound, with the latter more resistant to damage. Roofers secure the felt with staples, but in high-wind areas,

Creating Elegant Roofs With Laminated Shingles As a prominent part of your homes exterior, your roofing system can greatly influence curb appeal. It can either accentuate your homes style or give it an entirely different look. When aiming for a classy yet affordable design, consider choosing laminated shingles for your next roof replacement.

March 30, 2017 Category: Warranty

The Benefits of GAF Lifetime Limited Warranty Nearly every product in every industry has a warranty in one form or another, that lack of one is a cause for concern. When it comes to new roofing, however, having a warranty for the sake of having one isnt enough. In fact, the challenge is to provide exceptional, industry-leading roofing coverage to homeowners. As a GAF Master Elite contractor, West Side Roofing is among the few roofers who offer such, through the GAF Lifetime Limited Warranty. Types of Roofing Warranties The ideal roofing warranty should cover two parts: material and workmanship. Material or factory warranty covers problems that may arise from factory defects, with the manufacturer processing the claims. Workmanship or installation warranties cover problems from installation errors, with the contractor fulfilling warranty claims. Coverage varies depending on the contractor, but some dont even offer it at all. GAF Lifetime Limited Warranty GAF Lifetime Limited Warranty
