Spring has almost upon us and we know exactly what that means: Daily rain showers and thunderstorms. Consider that with all the rain, hail, and everything mother nature has to offer along with building expansion and contraction; your roof must continue to keep water from entering your home or business.

The roof is your first line of defense protecting your property and everything inside of it against the elements. While every aspect of storm prep is vital, the roof is probably the most significant and most often overlooked. It’s so important to equip your roof with superior materials and a solid construction before the rainy season is here.

Here is why even the most questionable damage can cause huge problems.

A small hole in your roof, or a simple missing shingle can spell catastrophe for your roof and possibly your entire building when the rainy season hits. All it takes is a small exposure to the wood roof decking for a leak to happen. If a leak is left untreated, it can cause wood rot in the roof decking or water damage to the ceiling and attic. What started as a small hole in the roof and could have easily been repaired has now turned into an extremely costly roof repair due to the pouring rain.

At Reynolds Roofing, Exteriors & Coating we are here for the small maintenance work and if you are unfortunate enough, we can make the big roof repairs less stressful!
