  1. Befriend Your Roofing Contractor Before the Storms this Season

    Leave a Comment

    After the rough of winter, spring has finally started to blossom across the Midwest. Although the temperatures are growing nicer, damaging storms are still a relevant concern year round. A new report finds that heavy rainfall from storms are continually causing major flooding and tornado clusters are becoming much more frequent. Peak tornado season ranges from April-June and thunderstorms occur most commonly from June-August.

    So, before we head into that next weather cycle, take the time and make the effort to reach out to your roofing contractor. Developing a relationship early on can lead to a better roofing experience, overall. Customers that remain in steady contact often encounter less damage to the interior and exterior structures because their roofing issues are addressed ahead of time. This means taking the initiative to inspect your roofing system in between the seasons to ensure that last winter’s snow and ice didn’t leave any serious harm behind. Not only can contractors assist in fixing existing problems, but they can help to prevent future problems from occurring.

    Intense summer storms, many a time, blow into town leaving high winds, lightening, pouring rain, and the occasional hail in its path. A roof maintenance program, as mentioned in our November post, is a viable option that can help save time and money. By fixing smaller problems along the way, you might prevent a bigger problem that lies ahead. At Knickerbocker, we work with each of our clients to design a maintenance program that fits your needs and budget.

    We all know summer weather can be inconsistent and turn from a harmless storm into a raging disaster within a matter of minutes. Having a relationship with a trusted roofing contractor means that you know who to call when a serious problem does occur. Even with the best preparation, strong storms can be detrimental. Having a company you know will respond quickly in an emergency is having peace of mind. Knickerbockers 24-hr emergency service hotline is standing by to answer to commercial, industrial, and institutional clients who require help ASAP.

    When you take a moment to step back and think about the essential functions of a roof, it becomes clear that this is the barrier that protects our loved ones and most valued assets from harm’s way. With unpredictable and severe weather affecting us year round, roof repairs are becoming more and more common. Take the next step to prepare and remain in control of your property.

    As discussed in our October blog post, “Prevent This Year’s Roofing Leaks from Rain and Snow,” the snowfall this year is appearing to be one for the record books. Look to ready yourself for the winter months and prevent roof leaks at your facilities, every season of the year, with a roof maintenance program like the annual roof maintenance program we offer at Knickerbocker.

    In addition to preventing roof leaks, Knickerbocker’s roof maintenance programs are designed to fit our customers’ needs and budget. Note that, in the long run, an investment in an annual roof maintenance program can save you from spending a lot of time and money on repairs. Another benefit of a roof maintenance program is the peace-of-mind you’ll get from knowing that you’ve got everything covered, when it comes to roof maintenance.

    It’s easy to get started with a roof maintenance program with Knickerbocker right away!

    We begin all roof maintenance programs for industrial, commercial and institutional facilities with a routine roof inspection to survey the condition of all building roofs. After inspection, we provide a written report on each roof. The report includes photographed areas of the roof that need to be addressed, and also details work that should be performed. In addition to our annual roof maintenance programs, our Service Department also offers semi-annual programs, and small project roof repairs and replacements.

    Last, but not least, Knickerbocker always offers emergency roof leak repair service; however, with an annual roof maintenance program with us, you greatly reduce the need for emergency service!
