Find Out If Your Local Roofing Contractor Can Perform These Tasks

When you've recently had your home's roof repaired or replaced by a professional roofing service and you're happy with the quality of the work, you'll likely want to use this company again. However, given that the job will have been done properly, it's unlikely that you'll need to have the roof repaired again in the immediate future. However, you may be able to hire the company for other jobs if its crews can perform other roof-related services beyond roof repair and replacement. Many roofing companies offer many different roof-related services, including the following.

Gutter Cleaning

Although some contractors exclusively focus on gutter cleaning, many roofing companies can do this work, too. Keeping your gutters clean plays a role in the health of your home's roof, so it's worthwhile to see if your favorite roofing company can tackle this job. Depending on where you live, this might be a job that needs attention multiple times a year, or it may be something that occurs less frequently. Whatever the case, your roofing contractor will be able to assess the factors that dictate the gutters' cleaning schedule — namely, how many trees you have in your yard — and suggest a suitable cleaning schedule for you to follow.

Snow Removal

If your typical winters involve plenty of snow, it may be necessary to hire a professional to remove the buildup of snow from your roof. Many roofing services take on such jobs during the winter, given that the average customer isn't having his or her roof repaired or replaced at this time of the year. A contractor or crew will arrive at your home and remove the snow safely. If you live in a single-level home, this work may be possible from the ground. For a two-level home, the roofers will actually climb onto your roof to take care of the snow.

Chimney Repair

Over time, your home's chimney may begin to deteriorate. The mortar between the individual bricks can disintegrate, harming the overall integrity of the chimney, or the flashing at the base of the chimney where it meets your roof may lift as a result of ice damage. Although some contractors specialize in chimney repair, some larger roofing companies offer this service, too. It's handy to hire a roofer to work on your chimney because he or she can also assess the condition of the roof and gutters while working on the chimney.
