Helpful tips and advice for home maintenance from your roof to your porch.
Hurricane season is going strong. What are you doing to prepare your roof or home?
Weather such as heavy snowfall, high winds, and sustained rainfall, certainly cause problems in coastal cities like Washington DC, however, the greatest roofing threat comes from hurricanes. Roofing professionals like Boyd Construction Co are in higher demand in coastal cities like Washington DC rather than landlocked regions where snug roofs that hold tight in a squalling Nor'easter aren't as crucial.
Washington DC residents may go years or even decades without having to weather a major storm , but when a hurricane does hit, the results can be catastrophic to homeowners, even if it was not as severe as some of the super storms that have hit the U.S. in the past few years. For those who live near the coast, it is a big mistake to leave a roof in a deteriorating state. It will turn out to be very costly.
