A Better Rain Gutter

Sure, the rainy season is over … presumably. But advance preparation is still a good idea. Sturdy rain gutters, of course, are the cornerstone of said preparation. You simply can’t be careless when it comes to these crucial drainage channels. Because, you never know when the next cloudburst will erupt.  Given this unpredictability, a rain gutter inspection could prove advantageous. If you don’t feel up to task, a qualified Orange County roofing company can tackle the assignment. These professionals will muster up finely-honed skills to uncover rust, corrosion, and other signs of wear and tear. If these tarnishes turn up, gutter replacement may necessary.

If you’re facing gutter replacement, an Orange County roofing contractor can offer a choice of materials. Nowadays, you’re not limited to metal. In fact, one of the most popular of the current gutter materials is vinyl. Gutters constructed of this sturdy plastic offer several advantages. One advantage is their proven resistance to dents, corrosion, and rust. You’ll just never see these problems with vinyl gutters.

What about scratches and scrapes? Are vinyl gutters susceptible to these defects? Yes, these can happen to the plastic variety. But when they do, they’re not nearly as visible as those marring metal gutters. For all practical purposes, scratches and scrapes are not a factor with vinyl construction.

Plastic rain gutters also offer a cost advantage. Because these drainage channels are lightweight, they’re easier to carry and handle. Thus, an Orange County roofing company generally can install them at a cost substantially lower than that of metal.

Roofing Contractor Selection - 5 Tips

Whether you’re looking to replace your roof, do some minor repairs, or subcontract the roof of your new-build home, you need to take some specific steps to find a great contractor. The contractor who does your job can make all the difference in the world. A great Orange County roofing contractor can make for a smooth, easy process of getting your job complete. But a bad contractor can result in not only headaches along the way, but shoddy workmanship that costs more in the long run.

So before you rush into signing a contract, follow these five tips for finding an excellent roofing contractor:

1.Go local

Your best bet when it comes to hiring a contractor is to go local. Local contractors, more than large companies or even installation crews from big chain hardware stores, understand the local markets. They’re more likely to understand what materials and techniques work best in your area. Plus, they’ll follow the current trends, so you can be sure that your roof looks up-to-date if you’re going for a replacement.

Also, local contractors are more likely to offer personalized, in-person service. This can make the whole process of getting your roofing project completed much easier.

2.Check for licensing and insurance

In Southern California, roofing contractors should be licensed by the state. They should be able to provide you with a license number, and you can cross reference that with the state database to ensure that the license is up to date. While not all licensed contractors are necessarily excellent, this is a good baseline to begin with.

Wooden Shingles Could Be Just What You’re Looking For

An Orange County roofing company can install roofs made of many different materials. One of the most overlooked of these materials is wood. Asphalt and other types of shingles seem to be getting the lion’s share of attention. You may, however, want to consider wood shingles when requesting an installation from an Orange County roofing contractor. There are many advantages to going this route. 
 
One of the main advantages of wood is its durability. Take care of it, and it will take care of you. Once an Orange County roofing company installs a roof made of wooden shingles, it can last up to thirty years. Provided, of course, that you properly maintain it. 
 
Here’s what a commercial roofing contractor would advise you to consider. Perhaps you have a home in Aliso Viejo that requires a new roof. You like the look of wood and decide this will be the material. So you hire an Aliso Viejo roofing contractor to do the job. You love the results. But is the job over? No, because once that roof is up, you must take care of it from time to time. A little maintenance is all it takes to make these shingles last for decades. In fact, a well-maintained wood roof likely will outlast most if not all of the cheaper types. Therefore, in the long run wood actually is less expensive than the bargain materials. You simply won’t have to replace wooden shingles as often.  
 
Another advantage of wooden shingles is their appearance. An Orange County roofing company that installs a wood roof is satisfying a certain aesthetic sense shared by many people. In the eyes of these individuals, a wooden roof has a distinctive look that sets it apart. And that alone makes it extremely desirable.   
 
If you have any questions about wooden shingles, be sure to reach out to Luke Roofing. A long-established Orange County roofing company, we provide prompt, reliable expertise for every need and situation. Whether you need roofing services in Aliso Viejo, Fountain Valley or anywhere else in OC, you can definitely count on Luke Roofing.
