When homeowners think about damage to their roofs, what usually comes to mind are pretty obvious things that are hard to miss such as loose shingles or full-blown leaks. Unfortunately, many roofing issues are a little bit more subtle and it takes a well-trained eye to be able to spot them. In fact, to somebody without the proper training, the majority of roofing problems are virtually invisible. To help you avoid a huge roof repair bill, we give you three such examples.… Continue Reading
It’s important to take care of your roofing system since it’s one of the most important parts of your home. It protects you and your family from harmful elements, while keeping your home beautiful and energy-efficient. Also, roofing isn’t a DIY job, so it’s important to have it maintained, repaired or replaced by a professional for the best results. However, you can go one step further and work with a local roofing contractor. In today’s post, Pechacek’s General Contracting, a top roof repair company, shares why you should work with local roofers.
They Can Easily Reach Your Home
When you choose to work with a local roofing contractor, you’ll find a whole new world of convenience since their office is within your vicinity. This also means that your roofer can reach your home within minutes in case of a roofing emergency. You can also easily schedule a roofing job with them, or secure quotes since they can easily reach your location.
There’s also a high probability that your roofing contractor can supply you with a roofing quote if they’re already in your area. If there are any issues or mistakes that occur during the span of your roof replacement project, they can easily reach your area to rectify it.
Familiar With Local Permits and Regulations
When you’re working with a local roofer, you can rest assured that they know the ins and outs of the building permits and regulations. Keep in mind that these regulations can vary from state to state. This could be difficult when you’re working with an out-of-state roofer since they might not know all of the nuances of the permits and regulations. This isn’t the case with local roofers since they know these regulations like the back of their hand.

Finding the right roofing contractor following a storm can be challenging, especially if your roof suffered severe damage and requires an immediate repair or replacement. The urgency of the problem might make you feel impatient, but it is never a good idea to hire the first person you see. Most likely, this individual is a “storm chaser,” a roofer whose objective is to go door-to-door and offer inspections and repairs for free or even low rates, but leave with substandard roofing work—and your money.
Regular inspections and maintenance are vital to ensuring the long-term health and performance of your roofing system. By keeping it in good condition, you keep your home protected against the elements, particularly hail, ice and snow. If not, expect repairs to occur early in the roof’s lifespan, which can be costly.… Continue Reading

When choosing a color, the most important question to ask yourself is whether you should go for dark or light-colored shingles. In today’s article, roof and gutter installation expert Pechacek’s General Contracting explains the merits of both.… Continue Reading
