According to the CDC, more than 150,000 Americans every year need to be medically treated because of injuries from roofing accidents. 97% of these accidents happen at home, often because people try to install roofs or repair them even if they aren’t qualified. Sometimes, it’s because they ignored issues like leaks for too long, turning their roof into a safety hazard.
To improve your roof’s safety, you need to check its exterior and interior areas periodically. It is best to inspect for any penetrations, drainage issues and more. Once you identify these problems, you can address them quickly so they don’t get worse. Thus, your roof will stay in its best shape for longer!
In this week’s featured project, our client needed some help with their roof and its maintenance. Let’s see what happened.
Installing New Shingles and Gutter Guards for Canby Homeowner
Our cars need to be maintained regularly, whether you need to get your oil changed or your tires rotated. The same applies to our roofs. Unfortunately, 80% of all roofs need to be replaced before their life span ends because of lack of maintenance. Ray, a homeowner in Canby, didn’t want to be part of that 80%, so he reached out to us!
Ray understood the importance of yearly roof maintenance, but he didn’t always have the time to do so. To help him, our team installed roof upgrades that will cut down the time he would spend on yearly maintenance!
First, we installed brand new TruDefinition Duration Shingles from Owens Corning. These shingles come with a breakthrough design that give them more strength, durability, and gripping power compared to regular shingles. These shingles were also algae-resistant (to prevent any unsightly streaks from algae growth) and wind-resistant (so they won’t be easily blown off the roof deck). To top it all off, these come with a limited lifetime warranty.
Next, our team installed new gutter guards. While his gutter system collects water that falls onto his roof, the gutter guards help maintain the system by preventing any debris from ending up inside the gutters. This way, he doesn’t need to spend a lot of time removing leaves, twigs, and more that can get stuck in the gutters.
We transformed his roof from this…
With these in place, Ray’s roof is much easier to maintain. He can enjoy peace of mind with a well-maintained roof that will last for years to come.
