Roof Safety

Let’s turn our eye on roof safety and the impact on safety in a home. 

Julian De La Torre, founder of Julian Construction, a general construction company in Southern California, says “Roofs are designed to protect a structure from the elements, especially water. They can be built using various types of materials such as slate, rubber slate, wood shake, asphalt and metal. Whatever materials are used, a roof will eventually wear out over time and need repair or replacing. Evidence of roof problems can include missing, loose, warped or buckled shingles and tiles, which leave the underlying roofing materials unprotected. Roof leaks are especially serious and should be immediately addressed to prevent dry rot and mold.”

The procedure for fixing a roof is very easy if you are trained for it.  We suggest talking with a reputable contractor if you have a problem. The best ones will have references you can check; and you should.  -mike
