Today when we talk about solar energy, what comes to mind is typically the photovoltaic panel, otherwise known as a PV panel. The PV panel works by converting light particles into electricity at an atomic level. Small units, known as cells, are linked together into larger panels. These are what you see on Napa roofing systems and other areas around the country. If you are like so many other California residents, renewable energy is a matter near and dear to your heart. If you have been considering solar power, you may have been wondering if your home is suitable and how effective it will be for your individual needs.

As a consumer, you know to get at least two or three estimates for any large services. But when you are researching contractors for Napa roof repairs or replacement, how do you decide between very different estimates? Roofing estimates can vary greatly from one company to another. So how do you know how to make a valid comparison?

As one of your largest investments, a new roof should be carefully considered as well as the company you hire for that installation. When you get multiple proposals, you want to be able to be assured that you are comparing apples to apples. The best way to do a comparison is to get an in-depth breakdown of all charges and services.

In light of our recent wildfire disaster, we are soon to see contractors coming in to offset our contractor and labor shortage and to help us rebuild our community. Times such as these often open the doors to predatory companies wanting to take advantage of our circumstances. You do not want to entrust the rebuilding of your home and roofing system to any company that may be exploiting our situation. That is why you will want to take great care before hiring building contractors and roofers to rebuild your Napa home. In times such as these, it may not be possible to find local contractors and you will need to find ways to vet your contractors so you can be assured they are trustworthy. Trust is an important component when it comes to a professional you are entrusting to repair or replace the structure of your home. How can you have peace of mind in times like these?

As we begin the monumental task of cleaning up after this month’s wildfires, we ask patience of all homeowners struggling to rebuild their homes and lives. These efforts will no doubt take years and we are already seeing a shortage of Napa roofing companies and building professionals and laborers to meet this need. Homeowners should follow their insurance company’s protocol and take special care when hiring contractors to help rebuild their homes after this disaster. As the labor shortage already existed before the fires began, it will no doubt prove to only get worse in the months ahead.

Your roof is always the first line of defense against the elements and can be damaged by any number of weather related issues. Strong winds, storms, and heavy rain can affect the integrity of your roof and mean emergency roof repairs in Napa.

Is Your Roof Causing A Mold Problem?

Tuesday, 19 September 2017 by

Is it possible that a small roof leak can create a problem to your family’s health while being undetected? Napa roofing contractors know that any water that can find a way into your home can also be absorbed by porous materials in your home’s structure. When this happens, mold growth can occur completely undetected and can create a health and safety risk for you and your family.

If you know you need a new roof, you have been diligently doing your homework and getting multiple quotes from local roofing companies. But now you have several quotes, have talked to more than your share of Napa roofers, and feel more confused than ever.

While cost is always an important factor in hiring a roofing contractor, it should not be your only consideration. Don’t make the mistake of hiring a company just because it has quoted the cheapest installation, only to be disappointed and dissatisfied with the results. Here are some other very important considerations when hiring a Napa roofing contractor for such a large investment.

The Importance Of Attic Ventilation

Thursday, 07 September 2017 by

The proper installation of a roofing system relies on more than just hanging shingles. Regardless of weather, appropriate attic ventilation plays an important role in the longevity of your roof. Napa roofing companies know why proper attic ventilation is important for a home’s roof and how it can prevent expensive issues from occurring.

Healthy Gutters, Healthy Roof!

Your gutter system may not be something you normally think about, but consider this: if the water drainage from your roof gets caught in your gutter system and has nowhere to go, you may be setting yourself up for a roof leak, say professionals at local Napa roofing companies.

A healthy roof system includes a healthy gutter system. Your roof relies on proper drainage and your gutter provides the passage of all that water away from your home. Your gutters give rain and runoff safe drainage to prevent pooling, leaks, and water damage. They provide moisture protection for the siding, fascia, and foundation of your home. Keeping your gutter system clear of debris is important to ensure that the water draining from your roof gets carried away expeditiously.

A large storm can threaten the longevity of your roof. Winds, hail, and torrential rains can rip away shingles and cause severe damage to the integrity of your roof system. That is why many Napa roofers suggest that you get an assessment by a professional after a significant storm.

As a homeowner, you will be able to inspect for the obvious damage, but a professional will be able to detect damage that the average homeowner will not. An assessment by a professional will ensure that a comprehensive inspection has been done and the remedies needed will be detailed.
