Preparing:

Equipter and tarp protect your home | Cleveland, Ohio | West Side RoofingRoof replacement or repair is an invasive project. Your home is technically a construction site for the time that we are there. There can be multiple hazards such as nails or debris falling from the roof. This is why we take every precaution to ensure you know, and our team knows how to be safe during the process. 

When we come in, we set up tarps around the site and sometimes even inside the home. We do warn the customer ahead of time that particle debris can drop into the attic depending on how your roof decking is set up. So, the tarps act as an extra layer of protection to you and your home.

Keeping a Clean Workspace:

During and after the project, we come in with our equipter, which is a mobile trash unit that collects all of the debris from the site.

In addition, we use giant rolling magnates. These pick up any missed nails or other metal parts like that. We run the magnates about three times a day to make sure we are keeping you and our team safe!

We are constantly checking the weather to make sure that we have good weather for the project. We weeks before, days before, and even the morning and day of, every three hours to make sure we won't be interrupted by weather. 

If we do run into inclement weather, we always keep you informed and work with you to reschedule as soon as possible.

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof

August 16, 2019 Category: Roofing

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof One of the first things we look at when we go to repair or replace any roof is to take a look at the attic. The attic is the foundation of the roof, and if it has any issues, the longevity of your roof is at stake. The Importance of Proper Attic Ventilation Attic ventilation is a crucial component of any roofing job. Without adequate ventilation, your roof is at risk for mold, and no one wants mold in their house. The first step when we meet with the homeowner is to go up in their attic space and determine whether the situation is agreeable or if it needs some work. While in the attic, we also look at the condition of the wood. If the wood itself is in poor condition, we may have to make some repairs there as well. For example, a rotting attic ceiling is not a good foundation for any roof, new or old. It can be hard for some homeowners to hearthat they have mold in their attic, but it is important to know if it is there because it is unhealthy

Do You Have aLeaking Chimney orAnother Chimney Issue? Is a Leaking Chimney a Roofing Issue? One of the most frequent calls that we get here at West Side Roofing is about chimneys. It is not uncommon that over time a chimney will begin to leak, especially brick chimneys. Because a chimney is part of the roof, people will assume that we are equipped to fix that leak. Though this leakage is usually attributed to a masonry issue, we can still help identify and inform you about why this happens. We speak the masonry language, but we are not equipped to make those repairs. What is Chimney Flashing? However, sometimes there is a chimney issue that we can help you with, and that is with the flashing along the bottom of the chimney where it meets the roof. In the first example in the video, you can see that there were some pretty large cracks in the actual brick of the chimney which we recommended the owner have a mason come out and fix that. But their flashing was also coming apart as
