If you are concerned about the state of your roof, an inspection is the first step toward finding a solution. During a roof inspection, a certified technician assesses the quality of your current roof then makes suggestions for what improvements they can make. Expect the technician to check the following areas:
- A complete evaluation of the attic’s ventilation
- A search for roof leaks or interior water stains
- A review of the roof’s decking
- An assessment of the roof’s vents
- An evaluation of your roof shingles
- A check of any roof penetrations, like skylights and pipes
- A search and inspection of the chimney
- A check on your gutters
- An assessment of any roof flashing
A reputable roofing contractor will always inspect all of these areas before offering you solutions. If you invite someone to inspect your roof and they don’t check all of these areas, give Pro-Line Contractors a call instead. We’ll make sure that every element of your roof is secure and in good condition.
Why you shouldn’t wait?
A damaged roof can cause many serious problems to your property. If your roof is compromised by holes, decomposition, cracks, water can easily enter your home. Water, along with snow, ice, and even animals that permeate a compromised roof will eventually compromise the inside of your home. Your ceiling, insulation, walls, foundation, and much more are at risk for serious damage when the roof covering it all isn’t doing it’s job. Aside from structural damage to your home a damaged roof that isn’t performing as it should puts you at risk for paying higher utility bills, and can even put your health at risk by housing mold. Its a wise decision to have your roof checked regularly, especially after harsh weather.

Benefits Of Roof Restoration vs Replacement
Some people aren’t exactly sure why roof restoration can be a better option then full replacements. Here are some reasons you should consider roof restoration vs. roof replacement.
A full roof replacement can cost anywhere between $5 and $20 per square foot. Restoration, which provides all of the same advantages, costs a fraction of that. This is because roof restoration requires far less labor and material than a tear-off and replace job. With Pro-Line roofing services, you can expect to pay as much as 50% less for roof restoration vs roof replacement.
Roof restoration coatings fully adhere to roof surfaces. This provides a protective, watertight layer that can stop leaks and increase performance. The need for maintenance and repairs is also reduced by roof restoration.
Reduced energy costs
The reflective and emissive qualities of roof restoration coatings are great. That means you’ll have vastly improved energy efficiency after receiving our restoration roofing services. Unlike traditional roofing materials, restoration systems can reflect up to 90% of the sun’s UV radiation, lowering the amount of heat transferred to your property. This lowers ambient temperatures and decreases energy costs.
Less disruptive roofing services
Having your roof restored is a lot less disruptive than a full replacement. Rather than tearing apart your entire roof, our technicians will simply apply a coating to what’s already there. This process is faster and less intrusive in most cases.
Roofing Services: Roof Maintenance
Sometimes, it isn’t necessary to restore or replace your roof. Instead, you can just perform routine maintenance to ensure that no leaks occur. The types of maintenance that should be performed on your roof include replacing missing shingles and repairing cracks. Pipe boots are one of the more common areas where cracks form.
If you are only missing a few shingles, a full restoration or replacement isn’t completely necessary. This is especially true if our roof is less than 15 years old. Make sure to ask your technician if they think a restoration or replacement may be a good idea.
Gutter maintenance is also an important aspect of roof maintenance. If your gutters are in a state of disrepair, Pro-Line also offers gutter replacement.
Ventilation system inspections are critical too. Pro-Line Contractors will check to see if condensation is being properly vented out of your attack, ensuring that your roof doesn’t become delaminated. This can prevent shingle blow-offs in the future as well.
Finally, consider adding roof damage prevention to your roofing services checklist. You can call Pro-Line to prevent ice dams from forming on your roof. We’ll also deal with ice dams that have already formed. In doing so, we prevent tons of avoidable damage.
Benefits Of Roof Maintenace
Roof maintenance prevents later issues, like shingle blow-offs or ceiling damage. It’s inexpensive to have a pipe boot repaired, but the damage caused by a ceiling leak can exceed $500. You can also ward off other expensive problems by acquiring roofing services like roof maintenance. Generally, roof maintenance will extend the life span of your roof significantly.

What Shingles Should I Use?
If you have interest in a roof replacement, you may not know what shingles to use. There are several types of shingles to choose from, including:
- Asphalt – The cheapest and most common shingle option. Asphalt shingles are extraordinarily lightweight but they don’t last long.
- Slatestone – This is the most durable roofing material, as slatestone shingles can last up to 80 years.
- Solar – These shingles improve home energy consumption costs and increase the value of your home. Most solar panel roofs can last up to 25 years.
- Wood shake – A more expensive, more aesthetically pleasing shingle option.
- Metal – High strength, durable roofing material that can last 40 to 60 years.
