Roof Replacement Part 2

When having a new roof installed its always a good idea to remove the old shingles or roll roofing. Here are a couple reasons why, check condition of exiting roof sheathing make repairs as needed,check condition of roof flashing make repairs as needed. When installing new roofing materials its a good idea to have a solid deck to prevent blow offs from strong gusts of wind. I was in Ewing Twp N J 08628 yesterday to check a leaky roof, what I found was  a patch of missing roof shingles . I believe its a wise decision to have your roof inspected  and gutters cleaned twice a year by a qualified roofing specialist,the reason I say this is you pay to have the gutters cleaned and while the roofer is up on the roof they can check the roof take pictures if they find problems. Problems can be repaired quickly before damage escalates .The home owner is getting the roof inspected for free,while the contractor is servicing the gutters win win situation for all.
