Due to the cost of installing a new roof, and because your roof is your home’s first line of defense against the elements, it’s important to hire the best roofing company possible. Here are a few ground rules to help you find the best pro for your home. Search Now 1. Talk to Several Contractors Speak with several roofing companies to establish your price range. It’s also important to note that the winning bid should be relative to the overall price of your job.

Restor | It’s Important to Have Your Home Inspected Following a Severe Storm

Brian Southard Emergency Restoration, Water Damage

Have you experienced bad storms recently? If so, your home may be in need of possible restoration services. Severe thunderstorms are most common in the spring or summer months and usually involve a strong winds, hail, and a lot of rain. If your property has experienced a severe thunderstorm, it’s always best to have the property inspected to determine if you’ve sustained storm damage. We’ve all heard the expression, “take care of your body and your body will take care of you.” As a business owner or homeowner, you should apply this same wisdom to your commercial or residential building and the premises around it. While it’s easy to see physical damage that can be caused by large storms, Mother Nature also slowly and consistently breaks down your building’s defenses against future weather conditions. The specific weather conditions your building is exposed to, coupled with your maintenance plan, play a large part in the strength and longevity of your building and your resulting bottom line.  Here are a few examples of severe weather conditions that can damage  properties: Expansion and contraction due to seasonal temperature swings and daily temperature fluctuations can create leaks in sealants, gaskets, and other building materials.  UV exposure from sun, as well as snow, rain, drought, hail and smog, can degrade roots and wall systems. Salt sprays in coastal locations can corrode various metals, while acid rain in Northern locations can also eat away at some metals. Repeated windstorm exposure can cause fatigue on metal and wooden components making them more prone to failure in the next big storm. RESTOR is a full service …
