Residential or commercial, a roof serves a number of purposes; it’s an integral part of the structure, providing support and strength; it provides a building’s contents with protection from the elements; it provides another layer of insulation; and can be a decorative element of a building, adding to its curb appeal. Generally, when we think about roofs and roofing, these things don’t cross our minds. That’s why roofs are often neglected until they develop problems. They aren’t exactly at eye-level where we could notice if they are showing signs of damage or age. An experienced roofing contractor in Franklin can do an inspection of your roof and let you know if there are any potential trouble spots, or damage. If your roof needs attention, he will explain the situation, how he intends to remedy it, and what will be entailed in the process.
Although roofs usually have a long life, nature often takes a hand in shortening their life span. Heat, cold, heavy rains, wind, and hail can all work to cause a faster-than-usual deterioration of even the best roofs. An inspection will determine if there is damage to your roof, what kind of damage, and its extent. If you have some missing or broken shingles, or some damage to flashing, a simple roof repair will take care of your issues. If the damage is more severe, you may need a re-roof done. If your roof has sustained heavy storm damage, or if it has been neglected for some time, your roofing contractor in Franklin may recommend a complete tear-off of the old roof and a brand new roof installation.
Although a new roof can be a costly proposition, it can also come with some benefits; with the development of new roofing materials, the roof you install will almost certainly be more energy-efficient than your old one and will save you noticeably on your heating and cooling costs. This will also be an opportunity for you to select a style of roofing that will better complement your home. Metal, slate, shingles, even copper can be used in roofing and you will get to choose which one will add the most curb appeal to your home.
