Roofing Service and Installation
Is your roof missing tiles or have visible holes and gaps? Are the tiles warped and discolored? Is it looking more like a forest river bank with moss growing abundantly all over?
Can you see daylight when up in the loft or know water is seeping into the house?
Is your roof just passed its prime and sell by date? There comes a time in every home’s lifespan when the roof needs to be replaced.
New England’s extreme weather is a major factor in accelerating a roof’s decay. Ice dams in the winter along with a buildup and weight of multiple snow storms, can compromise a roof’s protection for your house. Even in the summer the hot sun beating on the tiles breaks down their repellent and other protection properties.
The fact is in New England the weather is always eroding that “layer of skin” on top of your home and small bits of the roof are flaking off even as we speak.
If you’re like most people then you’ve probably been putting off the decision to replace your roof for a while. It is a large and inconvenient cost and you may be finding it difficult to justify the expense, particularly if you’re considering selling in the next few years.
Whatever your circumstances don’t put it off any longer. Here’s why:
Damaged roofing can cause a number of problems in the house. It can leave the home exposed to pollutants, dirt and vermin. Rain or snow can seep through cracks and gaps in roofing and cause water damage in the ceiling, walls, flooring, and leading to structural damage.
Water damage can increase the risk of mold and mildew growth. In addition, moisture can cause gradual deterioration of the ceiling and walls.
Increased Home Value
A new roof can instantly transform the appearance of a home, giving its owner much needed leverage to keep its value at a high or competitive level.
Roofing is considered a major economic factor. If it is damaged, worn, poorly maintained and in bad need of repair and replacement, potential buyers will dismiss the house for viewing without even seeing what is inside. If roofing is well maintained, it points to a critical step in preventative maintenance.
In the buyer’s mind, a home that is well maintained is simply much more valuable than a home that has clearly seen better days.
To homeowners, their house is their sanctuary, a place to feel secure in. However, time takes its toll and it often gets its way. Over the years, exposure to the elements can fade, chip, peel and cause cracks to appear on an old roof.
Fortunately, modern research and manufacturing processes now provide a number of excellent roofing options that can last for as long as 50 years.
These roofing materials are built to withstand severe weather conditions, keeping their structural integrity in spite of exposure to heavy rain, strong winds, heavy snowfall and temperature extremes.

Here's What Paul Had To Say About My Services Which Included a New Roof...
"Mike and his crew did a great job about a year ago residing our house and installing new windows. In July, we were hit by a tornado! My wife and I were on vacation. One call to Mike and he had his crew at my house, hired a tree service to remove a large tree that had smashed through our roof, and had us buttoned up and weathertight with a professional shingling patch. Our neighbors are still dealing with blue tarp. Mike is now handling putting on a new roof, fixing the siding, and managing the interior repairs. I wouldn’t have enjoyed the rest of our vacation if Mike and his team were not on the job." - Paul Carey
