  • Why a Spring Roof Inspection is Important

    With the harsh Pennsylvania winter fading and spring starting to show itself, it's easy to forget about home maintenance. However, one of the best things you can do for your home is to get a spring roof inspection -- it can save you tons of trouble, time and money in the long-run.

    Each winter, your roof takes a beating. With constant temperature fluctuations, heavy snow and lots of rain, your roof is often exposed to the worst of the worst during the winter months. Therefore, there's a chance that a problem may exist on your roof -- whether it's the result of an ice dam, black algae or a roof/skylight leak -- and although the problem may be small now, it should be caught ASAP. A small problem now can lead to a giant problem later.

  • Skylight Roof Leak Repairs

    One of the most common sources of roof leaks is a skylight.

    Although aesthetically beautiful, skylight roof leaks aren't uncommon. Thankfully, they are usually a quick and inexpensive fix.

    As LGC roofing points out, most skylight occur in the flashing -- the area between the skylight in the roof. Often, if you have a factory-made skylight, new flashing is available from the manufacturer. If you are comfortable with doing your own roof repairs, you can order it from them and install it.

    However, if you're not comfortable with roof repairs, or have a custom skylight, a roofing contractor may be needed.
