Clear the drains and book roofing experts to clear them free and ensure no blockage.
Roof Inspection after storms
Summers or rains can see heavy storms or winds blowing across the plains. Check for microburst or damage to the roods during this time. Regular inspection and touch up helps in keeping the roofs in good condition even after storms.
If you have been considering re-roof for your building, summer is the right time! You have plenty of sunshine and mostly, non-slippery roof surface to perform re-roofing. You can also get roofing professionals easily and for a longer task at hand during the summers. Re-roofing is possible on all types of roofs.
