Quality service & workmanship on all roof replacements, roof repairs, siding, and seamless gutters in Nebraska.
If you live in Nebraska, part of your regular roof maintenance inevitably involves clearing off snow.
Allowing too much heavy snow and ice to accumulate without taking the trouble to remove it can be extremely damaging. In the best scenario, you’ll end up needing to get your roof repaired. Heavy snowfall combined with neglect can cause the whole structure to fail. If this happens, you will need a complete roof replacement.
Roof flashing is an essential component of your roof. It secures the joints and edges of your roof as well as places where water accumulates like valleys between roof sections. High-quality flashing that is properly installed will direct water away from the vulnerable roofing area and towards the water drainage system.
Roofs typically deteriorate over time because of their reliance on structural support and exposure to moisture and the elements. If you don’t maintain and care for your property’s roof, eventually, it will collapse.
A roof does not, however, collapse overnight. A collapsing roof is the result of multiple structural issues that develop over time. Long before a roof collapse, it will exhibit warning signs that indicate the need for a repair job. In this post, Nelson Contracting will be discussing the signs that you should look for before a roof collapse.
