Roofing Contractor in Clinton MI Advises Homeowners to Ensure Their Roofs Are Ready for Winter

Miller's Home Improvement, a roofing contractor based in Clinton Township, MI, has recently published a blog post advising homeowners to make sure that their roofs are ready for the coming winter. Despite the current pandemic, roofing contractors are now able to offer their services across the country so that homeowners with roofing problems can have them fixed because the snow will likely cause such problems to worsen.

There are several possible major causes of roof damages due to snow. These include the aggravation of current insulation problems and the formation of ice dams. Because the heater will be working at maximum, the snow that gets inside the damaged insulation will melt into water that will aggravate the situation and cause more damage to the area. Meanwhile, ice dams will occur when not enough heating is provided for the roof. Because there is not enough heat, snow will tend to accumulate on the roof, thus resulting in a blockage that traps more snow, which may become heavy enough to damage the roof and cause water to enter.

Miller's Home Improvement provides both residential and commercial roofing. For residential roofing, they offer roof repair, roof recovers, roof tear-offs and replacements; attic ventilation; and hail damage insurance assistance.

They also provide advice through their website like the above-mentioned Miller's Home Improvement blog post. In another blog post, they provided advice for people to be careful when doing their shopping online. According to them, despite the many roofing product suppliers and hardware stores that have online platforms allowing the customer to browse their listings and make purchases, not all of them can be trusted. Miller's Home Improvement urges homeowners to buy only from well-known sellers. The problem with online buying is that pictures are not enough to be able to assess the quality of a product and how long it will last. It is possible to make some adjustments to digital photos that can be deceiving and there are also a lot of fake reviews.

For commercial roofing, they offer roof inspections, repairs, and new installations and replacements. For inspections, their team evaluates the client’s roofing structure and find out the level of damage. They will determine whether new roofing material can be accommodated. They will inspect not just the rooftop but also the interior roofing and all of the inspections are provided for free.

They will provide repairs for commercial roofing leaks, standing water, blisters, holes, and more. Property owners who notice the presence of moisture damage on the walls and ceiling and unusually high energy expenses for the building are advised to contact a roofing contractor like Miller's Home Improvement.

And for those who are establishing a new commercial building, they can provide the needed new roofing installations and replacements. They can install EPDM, TPO, or torch-down roofing. They usually recommend ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) flat roofing. Such rubber roofing is considered to be a great property investment as it remains durable and can last for a long time. EPDM roofs that have been properly installed may last for up to 50 years. Furthermore, EPDM flat roofing will need minimal maintenance because it won’t need additional coating and recoating for a relatively long time.

Thermoplastic olefin (TPO), a synthetic flat roofing material, is another great commercial roofing option. This is because it is eco-friendly as it is completely recyclable; is easy to install and repair as it just requires a single-ply membrane; is energy-efficient because it reflects the sun’s radiation; offers resistance to ultraviolet radiation; and is available in various colors.

Meanwhile, torch-down roofing is a cost-effective roofing material for commercial buildings. It has other advantages, such as its durability, the fact that it is impermeable to water, and the fact that it can last up to 20 years or even more.
