Natural disasters can bring out the best and the worst in people. Dealing with the aftermath of a severe weather event can be a devastating experience. If your roofing system happens to fall victim to hail damage, hurricane winds or other acts of God, it seems obvious to immediately get it fixed. Shelter during storm season is without a doubt priority number one.
There’s a reason why clay and concrete tiles are popular among roofers and homeowners alike in New Mexico.

If you’ve called around asking for quotes from multiple roofers before, then you know just how expensive getting a brand new roofing installation can be. Repair and maintenance go a long way to extending the lifespan of any roof, but the more years you put on that roof, the harder and harder it becomes to maintain. Leaks become more frequent. Some parts begin to sag. It starts to look faded and worn. These are only a few of the symptoms of a roof entering the final years of its service.
