Before Hiring a Maine roofing contractor, make sure they are Licensed and Insured
Maine roofing contractors have some of the most diverse roof repair issues of any across the United States. Your state has all the wild beauty that attracts visitors from around the world. The tourism created by the natural environment has a different effect on a house. It challenges home owners in providing a warm and dry environment for your families. And the sea, with its salt laden air has an impact on your roofing materials.
Maine’s east coast exposure attracts plenty of tourists, painters and salt. Salt laden air has a complicated effect on your roofing materials. As the winds drive the moisture in to the eaves, vents and roofing materials, the salt air causes a far more rapid deterioration of nails, flashing, vents and other metal components. This weakens the roofing tiles and shingles, which translates to leaks in the roof and blown off shingles during the gale force winds your state is known for.
Winter brings its own challenges to the homeowners with snow burden, ice buildup and salt retention. Salt will eat away at the asphalt roofing tiles so their lifespan is shortened, especially in combination with exposure to UV rays. Applying salt to ice dams and to melt ice buildup in general has drawbacks because once your winter gets cold enough salt water freezes over anyway so you have even more salt eating away at your roof.
The sunshine of summer is welcome, but the number of warm sunny days you enjoy is far less than those of your southern and western neighbors. Drying out your house and combating the mildew, rot and mold you risk by owning a home in a humid climate is top priority. You need top notch attic ventilation to keep the air moving. You may require additional roof vents to combat the dampness. Regular roof inspections really help you keep on top of your roof repair issues. Don’t wait until your roof needs a major renovation or replacement to have it checked out. Ask for a free estimate from your local Maine roofing contractors – they know what to do for you.
