Routine Roof Maintenance Makes Good Financial Sense

Many home and business owners don’t think about their roofs until a problem develops.

Like an automobile, roofs and their related components such as chimneys, skylights, and eavestroughs need periodic checking and routine maintenance. Although easily over-looked, protecting the fifth wall of what for many, is their largest asset; it makes good financial sense.

Professional facility and property managers, and multi–property owners have concluded from their experience, that it is better to resolve small issues sooner, rather than later.

For homeowners, an annual visual inspection is recommended to include the roof, guttering system, the attic, exterior walls surfaces including the windows, foundation areas, and masonry areas such as chimneys, stone facades, or concrete window sills.

Safe access for many consumers is difficult and not suggested for steep slopes, or elevations above one storey. This assumes one knows what to look for. Call on the professionals at Avenue Road Roofing who can inspect and identify any issues of maintenance or repair. We provide comprehensive inspections, and will clearly explain, and demonstrate the items needing attention. Many clients are pleased to learn that all elements are in good order.

Where work is required, technicians provide written recommendations with pricing clearly detailed, and payment options available to suit most any budget.
