A roof has to perform two very important functions.
First - Your home needs to be protected from all of the varied types of weather that come along. From the extreme cold
and icy weather of a Maine winter to the hot baking sun in the summer. A good roof will prevent water from coming inside and ruining
ceilings, walls and the structural integrity of your home.
In addition to different weather, a roof needs to perform well in high winds, hail and other extreme weather events.
Second - A nice roof will make your home look beautiful. A roof needs to complement and enhance the look of the house.
With a house design like a cape, the roof can be the dominant feature of the exterior of the house.
DIY? Although some simple roofs can be done by a skilled do-it-yourselfer, in most cases it is better to hire a competent
professional roofer to do the job. Roofing can be heavy, bulky and hard to handle. A good professional roofer will have all the safety
equipment, training, experience and insurance coverage to do a good job.
