Roofing in NH from Corriveau“You’re lucky to have a roof over your head!”

As a property owner, chances are you know how important your roof is. It’s the first line of defense against nature’s often harsh elements so must be thoroughly evaluated and maintained in order to keep you, your family, or your customers safe. And, at Corriveau Contracting, we’ve been roofing in NH for over fifteen years now so have intimate knowledge of just how important a property’s roof really is.

This is especially true around this time of year. New England winters can bring an onslaught of treacherous weather conditions that your roof has to bear the brunt of. And, whether you need a completely new roof, some roof maintenance, or a roof inspection, Corriveau Contracting is the company that you want to work with. Our GAF Certified roofing technicians can handle all the most important aspects of roofing in NH.

What to Look For

Two of the most important things to keep an eye on during this time of the year are proper attic ventilation and the removal of excess snow and ice dams. Ice dams occur when the heat in your home gathers and rises to the top, middle section of your roof, melts the snow and ice above it, and this melted snow and ice naturally falls down to the cold, freezing sides of your roof. Here, the extraneous snow and ice freezes and blocks the paths of gutters and soffits; where more snow and ice buildup – eventually causing ice to form in the cracks of your home’s roof and walls. This can lead to expensive structural damage if left unattended.

Proper attic ventilation is also something every property owner has to keep an eye on. A poorly ventilated attic can not only allow moisture to cause severe structural damage, but can also contribute to poor indoor air quality in your home. An attic without proper ventilation can soon become a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew – both of which can have detrimental effects to one’s health. Long-term exposure to mold spores can trigger asthma attacks and cause asthmatic type symptoms in otherwise healthy individuals. So, before your roof becomes a real problem, let Corriveau Contracting give it a look over to ensure the safety of your family, friends, co-workers, and customers.
