When you are choosing a roofing company to complete work on your home, you are finding someone to work on one of the most important parts of your home. Your roof determines influences your utility bills, the look and value of your home, and protects your family and possessions from the weather. In our last blog, we went over how Tim Leeper is the roofer to choose because of our dedication to honesty, integrity, and customer service. In this week’s article, we will look at how the details that pay attention to are also a compelling reason to choose Tim Leeper roofer for your residential or commercial roofing repairs or replacements.
When it comes to choosing a roofer, you should pick one who pays close attention to details, and this means choosing Tim Leeper Roofing. We know that the small things add up to a job well done.
Nails are a great example. When we remove the old roof, we make sure to pull each one out—we don’t just hammer them down. Hammering them down makes for a bumpy surface over which to install the new roof. People who don’t know roofs might not notice any difference, but we do, so we don’t do it.
Ice Dams are a wintertime problem in the Nashville area, and so we make sure we use ice and water shields in the valleys of roofs. These shields protect your roof from water getting into small crevices, which then freezes and causes damage to the structure of your roof. Water tends to accumulate in the valleys and where the roof meets a vertical wall, and so it is especially important to protect these areas with an ice and water shield, and that is precisely what we do.
Ventilation is another detail that can be overlooked by roofing companies not dedicated to the best work, but not by Tim Leeper Roofing. We make sure all the roofs we work on have good ventilation. Without proper ventilation, your roof can’t do its job completely. A roof should help increase energy efficiency. When the attic isn’t ventilated properly, the house will be sitting under a hot blanket all summer and a cooling blanket in the winter, increasing energy bills, and not lowering them. Improper ventilation also allows moisture to accumulate in the roof deck and this can lead to rotting wood.
The cleanup part of the roofing process is not what some people consider a detail, but we’ll group it here because when it’s not done properly, it’s the detail of a single nail that punctured a tire that is important. When we finish any job, we make sure we leave your home looking great. We blow off the roof and gutters, walkways, decks, and anywhere else debris has collected. We use metal detectors to find every last roofing nail so that it can be removed.
