Rain, Rain, Go Away — Now!

rainingSoggy and saturated. That’s a good description of the type of weather many areas of our country have seen so far in 2020. Especially those suffering from rain and flooding in Mississippi and other areas in the southeast.

From record rainfall figures to some of the wettest winters on record, it’s been a very wet year so far. As a result, many homeowners are chanting the “Rain, Rain, Go Away” song every day.

Evaluate Your Roof

Heavy rains mean heavy headaches for many people. The roof overhead that they thought was in good shape turns out to be the cause of water dripping inside the house. Or, the weight of all the significant snowfalls has damaged their existing roof tiles.

Either way, the results of rainy weather can be a sign that now is the time to take action. The team at DaVinci Roofscapes encourages homeowners to forget about playing ostrich. Take your head out of the sand. Start by contacting a professional roofer to evaluate the overall condition of your roof. This way you can receive a variety of options especially designed for your home.

Ask a Pro

“A professional roofer can safely get on your roof, evaluate your shingles and make recommendations if a replacement roof is needed,” says Zach Stopyro, manager of technical services and installation at DaVinci Roofscapes. “Getting an evaluation now, as the Spring weather arrives, is a smart idea.

“Roofers can catch — and oftentimes fix — a leak problem before it spirals out of control. Plus your roofer can give you a feeling for how much ‘life’ is left in your roof. And, if it’s time for a new roof, they can make recommendations that fit your budget and home’s style.”

If you find yourself in the position of needing a new roof this year, think about investing in a roof for the long-term. At DaVinci, our composite slate and shake roof products have a lifetime limited warranty.

These easy-care tiles are impact- and fire-resistant. They also stand up to severe weather and winds up to 110 mph, which can be a good thing when Mother Nature decides to rain down upon you!
