Before You Open Your Wallet …

 
When you’re a dedicated Orange County roofer, you have a great appreciation for the quality of a home’s rooftop. It’s integrity, structure, material composition, and reliability all take center stage in the eyes of professionals.

You don’t have to be an Orange County roofer, however, to take a deep and abiding interest in rooftops. A healthy interest is particularly important if you’re a homebuyer. As such, you’ve likely had your eye on the finer details of all prospective properties. You’ve looked at the walls, the sinks, the paint, the landscaping, and a million other details.

During this process, you’ll also want to give rooftops the attention they deserve. After all, they have an extremely vital role to play in the protection and comfort of your living space.

Given the importance of your roof, home shoppers must make certain theirs is in passable shape. Therefore, before opening your wallet to make a purchase, buyers should inspect their prospective home’s rooftop. Enlisting a residential roofer is advisable if you feel out of your element. By the way, the same holds true if you’re buying a business property. If inspections are beyond your capacity, get the help of a qualified commercial roofer.

During a roof inspection, many criteria come into play. Three of the most important are:

Roof Composition – Determine the material composition of shingles. Some are more durable than others.

Roof Age – Depending on its material, roofs will become less effective over the years. Bear in mind, however, that durability varies among different materials.

Current Condition – A professional Orange County roofer can detect obvious as well as hidden problems.

When Should You Call an Orange County Roofer?

If you live in an Orange County city, for example Laguna Hills, you probably want to maximize the beauty of your home. Frequently, home improvements will be part of the beautification program. If your own program includes roof improvements, you may be considering a Laguna Hills roofer to provide assistance. Is there a good time to seek the help of an Orange County roofer?

While the time to summons a commercial roofer can vary, a good rule of thumb is to start with a roof inspection. You needn’t call in a professional Orange County roofer for a first glance. This is a task you can do yourself. A personal roof inspection should be carried out at least twice a year – more if you’ve got a wide open schedule. Yeah, right.

When conducting a self-inspection of your roof, be on the lookout for obvious signs of wear and tear. These include moisture streaks on shingles, curled or buckled shingles, missing granules, or rusted flashings. If you notice any of these tell-tale signs, by all means call in an Orange County roofer for an assessment of the situation.

You’ll also want to conduct an inspection of your attic. If the ceiling or walls are marred by water stains, mold, or moss, you can bet your bottom dollar that moisture has entered the region … very likely unwanted moisture sneaking in through a roof leak. Often this obvious evidence will be accompanied by higher-than-normal energy bills. Should you notice any of these giveaways, absolutely seek the opinion of reputable commercial roofer.

If you have any questions about when to seek the help of an Orange County roofer, be sure to reach out to Luke Roofing. Among the long-established Orange County roofing companies, we provide prompt, reliable expertise for every need and situation. Whether you need roofing services in Laguna Niguel or anywhere else in OC, you can definitely count on Luke Roofing.

Is Your Roof Ready for El Nino 2016?

Being an Orange County roofer, Luke Roofing deals with countless issues facing homeowners. One of the issues almost certain to crop up this year is the predicted El Nino conditions. According to forecasters, the formidable El Nino will bring heavy storms and above-average rainfall. Many a roof will not be ready. And neither will some Orange County homeowners. That means plenty of repair work for those providing roofing services in Laguna Niguel or anywhere else in Orange County. 
 
We Orange County roofers definitely have seen our share of water damage resulting from roof leakage. Rainwater penetrating a home can lead to warped dry wall, bulging ceilings, mold, soaked artwork, soggy rugs, and more. Not a good thing.
 
One Good Way to Get Ready
 
One of the best protections against storm damage is a clean rain gutter. To ensure proper water flow, inspect your gutter for leaves and other debris. If up to the task, you can grab a handy ladder and do this yourself. If you’d rather leave it in someone else’s hands, summons a professional roofing contractor to conduct the needed inspection. 
 
Either way, gutters must cleansed of leaves and other debris, as these can cause tremendous water buildup. Once water accumulates, it may be too late -- moisture easily can leak into walls and damage all property in its path. Don’t wait for this crucial moment. 
 
If you have questions about preparing your roof for rain, be sure to reach out to Luke Roofing. A long-established commercial roofing contractor, we provide prompt, reliable expertise for every need and situation. Whether you need roofing services in Laguna Niguel, Sunset Beach or anywhere else in OC, Luke Roofing is your trusted Orange County roofer.

Have the Coolest Roof in Town

The recent heat waves remind all of us that hot weather is a year-round fact of life in Southern California. Which means most of us will be looking for ways to keep cool during those hot stretches, even during Fall and Winter.  In our experience as an Orange County Roofer, one of the best places to start is above – your roof.  That’s right. Certain kinds of roofs actually contribute to cooler indoor temperatures.  
 
Metal roofs, for instance, are excellent temperature controllers. That’s because they have a natural tendency to remain cool. The secret of metal roofs is their ability to reflect sunlight, thereby sending solar heat away from your home. With less heat penetrating your home, the interior temperatures invariably drop. 
 
While metal roofs are often pricier than those made of other materials, they offer tremendous long term benefits in the form of lower energy bills. They’re also more durable than average, meaning you won’t be replacing them so often. 
 
Roof color has a similar impact on domestic temperature control. White or light color materials are by far the optimal choice. As with metal roofs, these shades best reflect sunlight and thereby dramatically reduce surface temperatures. For this reason, lighter shade roofs are known as ‘cool roofs’.   
 
Many a commercial roofer also favors shingles or tiles for keeping roof temperatures cool. It’s not that these materials are naturally low temperature. It’s the special factory coating applied to shingles and tiles. The coating reflects sunlight in a similar way that metal and light colored materials do.  
 
If you have questions about keeping rooftops cool or are considering roof repairs or upgrades, be sure to reach out to Luke Roofing. A long-established commercial roofer, we provide prompt, reliable expertise for every need and situation. Offering roofing services from Laguna Niguel to Anaheim and beyond, Luke Roofing is your trusted Orange County roofing contractor.
