It's the best time of the year to check up on your roof and attic, with the weather getting steadily milder. Spring's warmer weather has always made it possible for Raleigh residents to find the time to make their home improvement ideas a reality.
One thing that should be on every homeowner's task list this season is roof and attic inspection. This excerpt from a TimberHomeLiving.com article makes the whys crystal clear:
The National Roofing Contractors Association recommends homeowners conduct a simple roof checkup every fall and spring. Doing so now can help prepare your roof for the long, harsh winter that's just around the corner.
So we all know about roof inspections, but did you know that the amount of ventilation in your attic also has to be just right? The NRCA recommends hiring a reliable roofing contractor to inspect the state of your attic ventilation. Studies have shown that having the right balance can significantly lower indoor temperatures during hot weather—perfect preparation for the coming summer.
What's more, undergoing this process can also help conserve energy, not only during this season, but all year round. So that's peace of mind, comfort, and energy (and money) savings—not a bad tradeoff for an afternoon's worth of work. The NRCA further recommends taking extra care when choosing a local roofing contractor:
Be sure your contractor has a permanent place of business, telephone number and tax identification number.
In addition, check references from prior customers and ask for proof of insurance (liability and workers' compensation) and be sure to ask the contractor to explain material and workmanship warranties.
