The Holidays and Your Roof… What’s the Connection?

First of all… Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all who read this blog!

First… Didn’t you know that Santa and his reindeer-powered-sleigh land on your rooftop every year? This can cause minor damage to any roof, whether Tile, Shingle or even Metal! This is a perfect time of year to inspect, while things are dry and cool – the perfect time of year to look things over! We can even clean up after those pesky reindeer!

But seriously… Did you, like many people, hang lights from the edges of your roof? Did you hang lights from your gutters? Did you put Decorations on the roof top? Maybe, just maybe, you went as far as pulling a Clark Griswold and decided to install lights all over the roof surface?! If you did any of the above, make sure you have us come out and look things over after the season ends!  We need to insure that no damage was done. We’ll even do it free of charge if you ask nicely! Consider this our Christmas Present to you – a complimentary roof inspection report! It is the least we can do for anyone who takes the time to read our blog site.

 Let us know if we can help you in any way – we are SW Florida’s premier Problem Solvers!
