Winter Roofing Safety
As winter approaches, it is always useful to review safety precautions you may need to take with your roof and the winter elements. Over the last decade, OSHA has investigated 16 falls in which workers were working or removing snow from a roof in the snow. There are many more unreported cases in which residents or business owners fall from their roof or a ladder. All of these deaths and injuries are preventable. Many accidents occur as homeowners blow leaves from their gutters or put up Christmas lights.
In light of the recent warranty changes in the roofing industry I thought our home owners could use a little help understanding the new warranty system. Pre 2011 we used to refer to shingles as 30, 40 or 50 year (lifetime) shingles. As of 2011 the entire roofing industry shifted to a new warranty system called limited lifetime shingles. Now all laminated asphalt shingles are covered by a limited 50 year warranty. In this article I break down exactly what your getting when you select between the 3 basic types of roofing warranties.
Every building or home has unique needs for roofing. This is one area that is not a ‘one size/ type fits all’. People love roofs in different colors,
Repairs and reroofing projects are costly, albeit a noble investment since if done well with quality products the first time round, the roof may serve you for a lifetime. Warranties are a very important part of receiving any service since they cover you against any problems that may arise after project completion. Roofing constructors should offer warranty periods every time they carry out a project.
There are many types of materials that can be used to provide shelter to a structure. Many types have come up recently due to the improvement in technology and the diverse tastes that human beings have come to develop recently.
