 “Get Your Post-Winter Roof Checkup”

This winter hasn’t just been hard on us personally—it’s also been hard on a lot of roofs. As a contractor, we hate to see it happen. We’ve had record low temperatures and above average snowfall. When you combine those two things, it can wreak havoc on a roof. The great news is, Bakeris Roofing makes it easy for homeowners to have a sense of security again.


Little critters might decide to use the overhang on your roof as warm shelter from the cold weather. They might get hungry and decide to nibble on your home (or take refuge inside your attic). Late at night while you’re lying in bed, maybe you heard little noises and thought it was just your imagination or a dream. It might be a friendly animal hanging out in your attic.


There’s nothing like a spring inspection to make sure your roof and attic are critter-free. Don’t forget, we have the Overhead Care Club program. It’s an easy process—all you have to do is call the office at (515) 967-8199 and we’ll get one of our service technicians to come out and do an inspection. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your roof, gutters, and overhangs are intact and safe from critters that are anxious to chew them up.


In the meantime, I recommend that all homeowners take a look around the house exterior. Start from the ground and go up to the gutter. If you have a pair of binoculars, use them to get a better view. There might be something up there you’ll catch that you hadn’t noticed during the winter season. That’s why spring inspections after a strong winter are so important. Your roof is out there working hard all year long. Any problems need to be taken care of before rainy season comes. The ice and snow might not have made it through, but you don’t want rain to leak inside and cause water damage.


You can think of the roof inspection as a very inexpensive insurance policy, similar to the one you might have on your cell phone. You might pay $50 a year to keep your phone insured for damage. If you’re a care club member at Bakeris Roofing, it’s only $189 a year, which includes cleaning your gutters and doing the full roof/attic inspection. That is a great value, especially if it prevents bigger problems down the line.


Not only will we get up on your roof, but we’ll also go into the attic to make sure no animals have taken up residence there. If there is anything that needs to be taken care of, we will give you straightforward pricing. You’ll know exactly how much it will cost to get the repairs done. Remember, your roof system is covering one of your most important investments: your home.


If you would like to learn more, call us at (515) 967-8199 or schedule routine maintenance today.
