Roofing Services You May Not Know Your Contractor Offers

When you think of roofing services, you likely think of repairs or installation. The truth is, there are several services roofing contractors offer that you may not be aware of. Here are a few of those services and what you should know about each one. Keep in mind, many of these services benefit homeowners throughout the year and can offer assistance that allows you to avoid a do-it-yourself project. 

Gutter Installation

Gutters are something that many property owners have in place. However, your gutters may be old. They may also be sagging or causing damage to your roofing. In most cases, homeowners will try to handle the removal and replacement of the gutters on their own because some of the gutter companies appear to have easy-to-follow instructions. The truth is, if you do not have the right background or experience, you may end up damaging your roof or causing problems that will damage the roof later. A roofing contractor can offer gutter installation services. They can install the gutter as well as the accessories that help prevent water damage to shingles on corners. 

Exhaust Fan Installation

Having the right exhaust fan for your attic space is vital. This is especially true when you live in an area that has high humidity and high temperatures. There are several styles of exhaust fans, and each has a basic installation step in common. They need to be placed in an open area of the roof that is cut to fit the fan. Once placed, the fan needs to be sealed. This seal not only helps secure the fan in place but also helps reduce the chances of water leaking around the fan. A roofing contractor can offer this service and can ensure your roof and shingles are not damaged during the installation. 

Skylight Installation

You may decide you want a skylight for your bedroom or another area of your home. Skylights are ideal for bringing natural light into areas that may not be able to achieve this otherwise. You may think installing a skylight is a job for a window contractor. Though a window contractor can handle this type of service, a roofing contractor can as well. A roofing contractor can also ensure the skylight is placed properly, not damaging your roof trusses, and not damaging the shingles surrounding the skylight. 

These are just a few of the roofing services your roofing contractor may offer. If you believe you could benefit from any of these services, contact the contractor of your choice. They can inspect your property, answer questions, and make suggestions for upgrades or renovations you may not consider right away. They can also discuss other roofing points with you, including a routine inspection and maintenance plan that works for your specific roof.
