But, he did more than that, my father left a legacy that I'm proud to accept.

Spring time is here! It is time to clean out those gutters and get protection on them.  Why you might ask? Because, uncovered gutters can cause  a number of problems. For example:

Backed up water from clogged gutters can make its way through your roof and cause cracking and leaking in you home.

Rotten fascia and soffit are also common problems caused by clogged gutters.

Over flowing gutters that do not drain properly allow the ground to become soaked and weaken possibly causing cracks in foundation. 

Difficulty cleaning gutters contribute to over 700,000 accidents from falling each year.

Midwest Roofing Services offers several different types of gutter protection. One type of gutter protection is a pliable gutter filtration. This type of gutter protection fills the entire gutter opening so that nothing but water can get in. When installed this product  allows rainwater to pass easily through the filter material and quickly flow to the downspout.  Leaves, pine needles, twigs, and other debris stay on top but does not impede the flow of water. Air flows both under and over the debris so it dries quickly and blows away on the next breezy day.  The filter material is invisible from the ground so no need to match gutter colors. The filtering material washes clean with every rainfall and is tough, absorbent and dries quickly.

Another option is a screen type gutter protection that handles large amounts of rainfall and keeps debris from ever entering the gutter. It is installed directly to the gutter lip so it does not move or shift over time. This type of guttering provides a clean and virtually invisible installation and it does more that just keep your gutter clean, it can help strengthen the gutter while providing superior water dispersion. 

We have a number of different types of gutter covers that also can be matched to your gutter as well.  So feel free to ask one of our professionals for what will better serve your gutter needs.

How to Maintain Your New Roof

Written by

All roofs should be checked periodically to be sure they are free of debris and drains are clear. A quarterly roof inspection will help to keep your roof maintained.  The best preventative maintenance is to inspect and identify problems as they occur.  Roofs get more abuse from the elements and preventative maintenance is a key element to saving money on your roof by providing a longer service life.

How to check and maintain your new roof.

*     Clean debris from the surface of the roof. This includes debris that has gathered behind HVAC units, pipes and pitch pans. Debris has a tendency to hold water, and water will advance roof deterioration, especially if the roof is asphalt based.

*     If your roof is starting to collect moss or algae, install some zinc or lead control strips. Keep all algae off the roof surface.

*     Check all flashings and make sure they are not deteriorated and there are no holes in them.

*     Replace any damaged shingles.

*      Keep all gutter free from debris. Make sure downspouts are draining properly by water testing them.

*     Trim back any overhanging tree branches.

*     Check all caulking and sealants. Scrape and remove any caulking that is weather cracked and damaged. Clean area before applying new polyurethane caulking.

*      Check the mortar on chimneys in between brick and on top.  If it is damaged or deteriorated, have it tuck pointed.  Any mason can perform this work.

 

Quarterly checking of your new roof will help to extend the lifetime of your roof.  Midwest Roofing Services is always here for any additional needs that may arise from wind damage to hail damage or anything in between.
