“You should treat your roof like you treat your car. You (or someone) changes the oil, the fluids, the filters, the tires and so on, so your car serve you well. Waiting for the engine to blow or the transmission to quit, then fix it, is way more expensive than a little preventative maintenance.

Your roof is similar to your car. Every part of your home or business receives wear and tear every day – your carpets, doors, faucets, toilets, crawlspaces, attic and roof. But because you use your carpets, faucets and like items every day, you know when they need repair. Items you don’t use hands-on every day, like your roof, are still receiving wear and tear and should be inspected every six months

• Start with the inside of your house or business. Go through every room and look for water spots on the ceilings and walls. Take a flashlight and look inside closets and behind furniture for water damage or mold. And remember, there is no harmless watermark. You need to figure out where the dripping is coming from. If it’s a roof problem, that small watermark could eventually lead to dry rot, mold or pest infestation. Better to fix this small problem now, before it comes a budget busting problem.

• Inspect your attic. Be careful where you walk so you don’t bust through the ceiling. Take a flashlight and inspect the ridge beams, rafters and sheathing for water damage. Mark any spots you see with chalk to determine if they’re growing. If so, determine exactly where the water is leaking through the roof and repair it.”

Taken from the article:
“Ukraine-based Alex Obraztsov completed the design of a contemporary penthouse in Kiev’s city center. The concept behind the High Lounge project— “Life is wisely thrifty: all new things are made of old ones”— is inspired by a poem belonging to Russian writer Konstantin Forfanov.

Discovered on site, the original arch roofing system was exposed and adds function to the space — aside from extending the living areas, it works as a space divider as well. The steel beam structures complement the plywood panels for a bold, modern look. The newly added terrace has ample space for outdoor relaxation with breathtaking views of the city.”

5 Tips for Finding the Right Roofing Contractor

There is nothing worse than a roof that leaks, not only does it cause untold damage to other parts of your home, but it causes severe aggravation, because, regardless if it was due to severe weather or poor workmanship, the fact remains that you are going to have to call in a roofing contractor.

On investigation, you find out that there is certainly no shortage of people out there claiming proficiency as a roofing contractor. This can be a huge problem. So how do you go about sorting out the chancers from the true professionals to avoid the being in the same predicament again and again?

Well as luck would have it, there are ways of doing just that. Read on…

1. Experience

Experience is a wonderful thing. It cannot be bought and has to be learned, sometimes the hard way. The more experience a contractor has the better the job he should be able to do, although at times it can be a relative thing.

2. Free estimates

Most contractors offer free estimates, but before you ask a contractor to come and give you a quote. The expected outcome is that you will be able to compare quotes without any added costs.

3. Warranty on repairs

Check if the work is warranted. A good contractor is proud of his work and the warranty will back that up.

4. Certifications and memberships

Checking on what certifications have been awarded to the contractor will boost your confidence in them. A body that is willing to associate itself with a certain contractor means that the contractor has met certain standards prescribed by them.

5. Testimonials

Testimonials and lots of them, not just a few from previous clients, means the contractor is consistently delivering on his promises. Of course an independent forum will also inform you if he is not. That being said a request to the client to complete a survey on completion of the work also indicates that the roofing contractor is confident in the quality of the work they deliver.
