A properly installed roofing system should last for many years. Unfortunately, there are many contractors who perform substandard work, causing even a newly installed roof to fail early. Today, Exterior Source, the area’s trusted home improvement contractor, discusses why some roofs fail early and how we can help homeowners:
The underlayment is the layer between the roofing shingles and the roof deck. Its main purpose is to act as a waterproof barrier and to protect the roof deck from damage.

Strong winds, heavy rain and flying debris from a storm can easily damage your roofing system. That’s why you should conduct a thorough roof inspection after any storm passes to determine if you’ll need a new roofing system. Read on as Exterior Source, the area’s home improvement expert, discusses a few things you should know about storm damage restoration:
Fall is one of the most charming seasons filled with apple-picking, pumpkin spice-flavored everything, and gorgeous autumn scenery. It’s also one of the best seasons for tackling home improvement projects. With the humidity and hot weather of summer tapering off, now is the perfect time to get
outside and work on the exterior of your home. Besides the favorable weather, fall is also a good time to hire a contractor for home improvements, as they typically aren’t as busy during this time of year.
While the gutters may appear to be an auxiliary part of your home, they actually play a key role in protecting the entire home from water damage. Despite this, it’s one of your home’s most vulnerable structures, as it can easily get filled with dirt and debris that can clog and outright damage it.
