It’s time to get your roof ready for winter storms!

Lopez Ventura Inc. will be the first to advise you that getting your roof ready for cold weather is one of the most important steps to take in preparing your home for winter.

Many homeowners wait for a leak to develop before addressing overdue roof maintenance issues. This saves money in the short run, but can lead to expensive repairs including damage to the home’s interior and even toxic mold!

Re-Roofing Strategies

The final line of defense in your home’s ice-dam prevention system is called a Waterproof Shingle Underlayment (WSU). This is a special kind of self-sealing asphalt/polymer sheet placed on the roof before shingles are installed. Unlike standard roofing felt or tar paper, this membrane remains waterproof even when nails are hammered through it. Any time you have a new roof put on, ask for this material to be installed at the gutter edge of the roof and along the valleys where two surfaces of the roof meet. Should an ice dam occur in one of these areas, the WSU should prevent the water from getting into the home.

Shingles

Professional installers have long preferred the rugged, dependable performance that only a timberline roof can offer. That’s why timberline shingles with advanced protection technology are the #1-selling shingles in all of north america. But performance is only half the story. Since your roof can represent 40% or more of your home’s curb appeal, you can improve its resale value with timberline natural shadow shingles from gaf. They’ll give you the upscale, architectural look you want, at a price you can afford.

Our Fall 2018 tips to prep your home for winter

Landscaping

Fall is not all about raking the leaves. While you’re in your yard, you need to prepare the shrubs, flowers, and grass for winter.

The first tip is to pick up all the leaves. If you let them sit through the winter, they’ll decompose and get into the root system of your grass.
The end result will be grass that doesn’t grow.
If you want to seed the yard, it’s alright to over-seed but make sure it’s all down by October 15th.

Gutters

You need to make sure the fall leaves and spring seeds are removed from your gutter.
All this material clogs them, and doesn’t allow water to flow.

While it’s still warm, make sure your gutters are working properly.

“They need to be inspecting their gutter system. Most older gutters have spike and ferrets which are those big long nails. A lot of time the gutters are loose they pulled away from the house the spikes have come out.

What to Do About Basement Flooding

basement flooding

Basement Flooding

Flooding in basements can be a problem. Basements are primarily used for storage and are often left unattended for days. This gives water an opportunity to get in and go unnoticed for stretches of time. It’s during this time that many possessions are getting damaged by water. Basements can flood for many reasons. Water can enter through cracks in basement walls. This happens most often when there are high amounts of water seeping into the ground outside during periods of raining and snow melting. There are home improvements that can be made to the outside of the house, such as replacing or adding gutters to draw the rain away from the basement. Some may want to consider options such as sump pumps or other products that can be used to seal off any potential problem areas. Getting professional help for the situation is also an option.
