Rain, snow, sleet, ice? We could be in for a challenging Winter! We in the Southeast haven’t experienced winter temps like these since 1917, likely long before your house was built. It’s true that the expansion and contraction of your roof’s materials caused by extreme temperatures can lend additional stress to your roof, and it’s this time of year when we see poorly constructed roofs show signs of faulty construction. Of course we can help you fix your roof even if someone else installed or repaired it.
Did you know that aside from roof repair, construction, and replacement we also specialize in making your home healthier and more energy efficient? Moisture and humidity generated in your home (through everyday events such as running showers, dishwashers, and dryers) that is not exhausted through your attic can lend to the buildup of mold and mildew in your attic space. Using a solar-powered attic fan, even in the winter, can lend to your home’s efficiency and energy savings. A properly installed attic fan works by preserving the integrity of your roof and your home’s air quality by reducing the opportunities for mold and mildew growth. Attic fans actually work to your advantage all year long, expelling humidity in the winter and pushing heat up and out of your house throughout the summer.
It’s a shame when we find attic fans that haven’t been installed properly and homeowners don’t experience the energy savings and household benefits behind their purchase. Just as you trust your medical doctor to look at the whole person to keep you in optimum health, you can trust Dr. Roof to assess your entire roof to make sure the cause of a leak or inefficient circulation isn’t part of a larger problem.
We know that experiencing a leaky roof or astronomical utility bills is no fun for anyone and we at Dr. Roof would like to make the process of engaging a contractor as pleasant for you as possible. I’d encourage you to check out our reviews and see just why we’ve been in business as long as we have. It’s by building lasting relationships and doing right by our customers over decades.
What questions can we answer for you about roof repair or attic ventilation systems? We’d be happy to help you.
Wishing you a safe and Happy New Year!
~Your friends and family at Dr. Roof
