You can contact Odds & Ends Home Improvement if you would like to learn more about what we have to offer, but our roofing services are outlined below.
Asphalt Shingle Installation
Asphalt shingles are by far the most common roofing material in the country, and for good reason. They are easy to install, they require little maintenance, and they provide excellent protection. They are also far less expensive than other roofing options while being aesthetically pleasing. Our team will be able to easily install these shingles on your roof and make it look like new.
Metal Roofing Installation
Metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular with homeowners across the country for its durability, energy efficiency and weather resistance. It is more expensive than asphalt shingles, but many homeowners agree that the benefits far outweigh the costs. Odds & Ends Home Improvement has metal roofing in a variety of styles and colors, and we can install a metal roofing system over your existing roof with little hassle.
Storm Damage to Roofs and Insurance Claims
When your roof is damaged by severe weather, you need a reliable contractor to assess the damage and make repairs as quickly as possible. Water can enter your home through a severely damaged roof, and in the worst cases your home’s structural integrity could be in jeopardy. Even a roof that appears to have suffered no damage in a storm could have issues that might not be immediately apparent.
If you’ve recently experienced severe weather, Odds & Ends Home Improvement can accurately assess any damage. If your roof was severely damaged and is in need of repair, we can absolutely help you with that. Contact us as soon as possible after a storm to ask how we can help you.
Many homeowners will ignore a minor leak in their roof and assume it will somehow go away or never be anything more than a small nuisance. This is a bad idea. Even a “minor” leak can do thousands of dollars worth of damage if it goes unchecked. Aside from the obvious water damage from a leaky roof, the moisture that is seeping into your home can be a breeding ground for mold and other health hazards. There’s also the fact that most leaks will get worse if they aren’t repaired.
Simply put, a leak in your roof is a serious problem that needs to be addressed as quickly as possible. Odds & Ends Home Improvement can provide quick and efficient leak repairs that will stop a leak before it gets out of hand as long as you contact us as soon as you notice the problem.
Odds & Ends Home Improvement provides roof replacement services to its Farmville, VA clients. A good roof will last for decades, but it will need to be replaced eventually. Some of the signs that you need a new roof include cracked, curling or missing shingles, streaks along your home’s exterior walls, excessive mold growth on the roof surface, numerous leaks, and sagging on the underside of the roof decking.
Copper and Zinc Strips to Prevent Moss & Mold on Roofs
One technique for preventing growth of moss and mold on a roof is to install strips of copper or zinc under the roof tiles. These metals will kill algae on your roof and help keep it clean. You can read more about how this works here. This is something you can do yourself if you know what you are doing, but we’d recommend having us come out and do it for you just to make sure it gets done correctly.
Softwashing Technique for Keeping Your Roof Clean
One relatively new technique for keeping both your roof and the sides of your house clean is softwashing. In this alternative to power washing or pressure washing, special environmentally-friendly chemicals are used to kill mold, bacteria, algae, and fungus growing on the roof and sides of a building. The treatment is based on similar treatments used to clean plants, so it avoids all the high-pressure blasting used in power washing so that no damage is caused to the building. Odds & Ends Home Improvement can use the softwashing technique on your roof or your entire house–call today for an estimate.
People tend to wait until the last possible minute to call a roofing contractor to fix their roof, usually when they start to notice puddles on their floor. By the time you notice these issues, it’s usually too late. A new roof will take care of just about any roof-related problem you may have, but it is also expensive and time-consuming. As the top-rated roofing contractor in Farmville, Odds & Ends Home Improvement will always work closely with you to ensure that you are receiving the best possible service at affordable rates, but it is always recommended that you contact us before your small problems turn into larger and more expensive ones.
