Repair My Roof

Ruthie Ann needed roof repair
She looked for her husband, but he was not there
She figured she’d go look in the phone book
She couldn’t find it, no matter how hard she looked

So, she asked her toddler, did she perhaps know
A roof repair expert that knew what to do

Her daughter replied, “No momma,” and sniffed
Saying “no” was her common word gift

But when she asked her, “Where’s mommy’s cell phone?”
The little one knew, she knew it alone
She pointed to cushions on the couch
Her mother kneeled, and then she crouched

And sure enough found her cell phone
Looked up roof repair contractor, and that alone
After a call, thirty minutes and that alone
An expert came, bringing tools and expertise
He walked beside her, quiet as a thief

She showed him the holes, the missing shingles and all
She was glad right away that she’d made that call
To work he went, cleaning and earning every cent
His bill, when he was all due
Was to the housewife a dream come true

All of her troubles with leaks and drafts
Was over and done, big difference before and aft
So, her husband came home and she told him what she’d done
He gave her high five and said he’d had fun

Because he knew he could trust her
To find just the right ones
And that they would take care of things
And have it over and done

So, their roof was fine
And the neighbors turned green
They needed repairs too
You know what I mean

So referrals they gave, testimonies too
Professionals well certified, licensed and great
Perhaps the very best in the whole state
They were both best price roofing and best value roofing

What Are The Little Rock Granules In My Gutter?

When shingles are manufactured, there are mineral granules pressed into the hot asphalt. These granules create the color of your shingles and protect them from UV rays, as well as make them fire resistant and more durable. As your shingles are exposed to the elements, it is not uncommon for small numbers of granules to come off and get washed down into your gutters. They will look like little rocks and you might see them here or there as your roof ages.

If you are seeing huge numbers of granules, to the point where it looks like there is gravel in your gutters or coming out of your downspouts, your roof might be nearing the end of its useful lifespan. However, there are other factors that can cause granule loss, such as heavy rain, hail, or damage from foot traffic. It is normal to see some granules loss on these occasions and does not necessarily mean your roof is failing.

If you are seeing a large number of granules on a regular basis, and you start to notice that your shingles look spotty or bare in areas, you should call a roofing professional to take a look before you have a leak.

 

Clean Those Gutters!

We all know that we’re supposed to clean and maintain our gutters, but do we know why?

Clean gutters quickly channel rain water from your roof, through the down spouts, and safely out away from your home and foundation. When leaves, twigs, and other debris begin to build up in your gutters, water flow begins to slow down, sometimes stopping all together.

When the rain comes, gutters begin to overflow, dumping rain water down the side of your home and right onto your foundation. This can lead to basement leaks, dampness, and mold. Water could also travel down behind your siding and leak in through the wall.

Clean gutters also help in the winter. When gutters are full of debris they hold standing water. In the winter, this freezes over, allowing ice to build up. Just the sheer weight of the ice can rip gutters and siding off the side of the house. Even worse, ice can back up under the shingles, causing leaks and interior damage.

So the moral of the story? Clean your gutters! Don’t want to do it yourself? Don’t worry, we can do it for you. Call us now to schedule your appointment!
