Is Your Roof Ready for Rain?

Posted on

Is your roof ready for rain? We recommend checking early to ensure there are available Salem roofing contractors to take on your project.

Salem roofers get overwhelmed with estimate requests in fall and winter. We recommend any home or business owners in the area with concerns about the health of their roofs reach out to a qualified roofing contractor in Salem as soon as possible to beat the rush and get any potential projects on the books before it’s too late.

We recommend taking a walk around your roof while the weather is still nice and looking not only at the condition your roofing material is in (moss, algae, uplift, missing shingles, etc.), but also looking for signs of rot or wear in the fascia. We know roofing can be a loud, expensive, and obtrusive process, but these negatives are all significantly amplified if you push your roof to the limits and it springs a leak (or worse). If you are interested in learning more about how a roof can go bad, read this article.

If you can’t get a good view from the ground and want to take a closer look at your roof to inspect its health, be very safe and test each step you take before trusting your full weight in any given spot. Follow the advice we gave previously, as it pertains to inspecting your roof.
