5 Steps to Keep a Strong Roof Over Your Head

Hopefully, keeping a strong roof over your head is not something you have to worry about too much. But with spring weather in Mid-Missouri, it’s important to take this phrase literally. In one day, we can experience severe wind, rain, and hail. Those unpredictable patterns are not ideal for your home, especially your roof.

5 steps to keep-a strong roof over your head

Having a strong roof can help you avoid headaches and pain from leaks that can cause interior damage to your drywall, carpet, paint, and belongings. When interior damage does occur due to a roof leak, the cost can be expensive and typically can’t be handled until the roof leak is fixed. That is why we encourage our customers to not wait until the problem occurs. Here are some steps you can take if you are worried about your roof holding up this spring.

Step One: Get Your Roof Inspected

How often do you think about your roof? Probably not too often, until it starts failing you. Roofs don’t last forever, and they’re the first line of defense to the elements. For example, last year there was a massive hailstorm that caused roof damage all across the Columbia and Jefferson City areas, causing several homeowners to begin the search for a new roof.

If you have an old roof or there’s been a recent storm, have us come out to give you a free evaluation and peace of mind. We might find that your roof is strong and doesn’t need any repairs, alternatively, it might be time for a roof replacement. We will only recommend what you need.

Step Two: Choose the Best Product

A lot of factors come into play when searching for the right roof, with curb appeal and quality being the top two. If you are researching roofing products, make sure you look for one that has the quality and track-record to last. We carry superior products like Owens Corning with their innovative SureNail Technology which has superior nail pull-through strength to ensure your shingles stay on your roof where they belong. We also provide different roofing options, from shingle roofing, metal roofing, flat roofing, and even commercial roofing.

Step Three: Find an Experienced Roofing Specialist

You’re making a big investment in your home and you want to be sure a team of experienced professionals installs strong roof. One of the best ways to find a roofing specialist that you can trust is to read reviews.

“Had the CoMo team come out and make some repairs. They went on the roof and showed me exactly what the issues were and repaired it quickly. The communication was excellent along with the customer service. I can’t thank the CoMo team enough for their excellent service.” Brandon B., Google review)

Our team of specialists have years of experience in all types of roofing. When we come out to your home our goal is to give you a fair assessment of your roof and the problems we see. If your home does not need a new roof, we will tell you that. If your roof has hail damage, we will help explain and walk you through the insurance claims process and meet the adjusters on site when they come. Our goal is to be honest and trustworthy in every interaction with homeowners, insurance adjusters, insurance agents, and realtors. By doing so we have built a reputation trusted throughout Mid-Missouri.

Step Four: Choose a Local Company

One of the most important considerations is to select someone who is local. Although every company will offer you a workmanship warranty, the companies outside of Mid-Missouri are not very likely to drive 2 hours to honor any warranty issues you may have. As a local company with 11 years of experience, CoMo honors its warranties and understands that mistakes can happen. The difference with us is simple – when there is a problem, we believe in being accountable and solving that problem. While problems are rare, they happen in every company, the difference is how they are handled.

Step Five: Figure Out Your Finances

While purchasing a new roof can feel unexpected, the reality is it may be necessary. A new strong roof is going to protect you from the elements, and it will look great when it’s finished. When you are making a much-needed investment like this, saving money and having options to finance is important. When gathering information, be sure to look for financing options. CoMo can offer competitive rates from the largest home remodeling financing companies in the country. Best yet our financing options are not secured against your home.
