How to find a reputable roofing contractor

There are many ways to find a reputable roofing contractor in Philadelphia.  Many people prefer to use the “word of mouth” process when looking for a reliable, honest roofing contractor.  It is always a great way to find a company you can trust through another person’s experience with the same company. Referrals are great when it comes to many things such as good food, good movies and in our case finding a good service.

With unlimited access to the internet, there are several key resources that boast there own type of “referral service”.

Another popular service-refferal site, one can visit in search of a roofing contractor is Angie’s list at www.AngiesList.com .  Angie’s list also delivers a data base of local Philadelphia roofing companies with an A+ thru F rating.  What makes Angie’s list a little different is the reviews that are given by real Philadelphia roofing contractor customers.  They are given first hand by people who have dealt with the roofing company from start to finish.  Real roofing company customers can rate the company they have contacted in areas such as punctuality, responsiveness, price, and and overall rating.  Angie’s list members (which can now join for free) can also write a detailed review of their experience with the roofing company they chose or others that they have contacted and decided not to hire.

There are many other sites online that can point you in the direction of a great, honest, affordable and reliable roofing company.  Some others are Google plus, Yelp, Roofing Networks, etc.   But in my experience Angie’s list are the most thorough online data base in finding some exceptional roofing contractors to help with your roofing project!

Nor’Easter hits Philadelphia

On January 23rd 2017 a Nor’easter hit Philadelphia!  Though not as damaging as past storms, the high winds have caused heavy rains and extremely high winds.  Winds that have ripped tree limbs off while causing others to fall, have been seen throughout the Philadelphia area.

Nor’Easter’s tend to do significantly more damage along the shoreline but being a resident of the Philadelphia area, I can say that the amount of damage in our area is also high.  Soaking rains and high winds have done their job in destroying people’s roofs.  Roof damage, leads to water intrusion which in turn leads to interior damage.

Universal Roofing & Contracting will help the area get through the storm.  We have already received many phone calls or various problems resulting in the past few day’s weather.  Trees have fallen through roofs.  Shingle roofs are experiencing missing shingles while other people have lost more than ½ their roof.

Flat roofs, seen throughout the Philadelphia area, have been peeled back, leaving one’s home completely exposed to the elements.  While others are experiencing leaking due to heavy, pounding rains that eventually flood older roof systems leading to water leakage to the interior of one’s home.

Universal Roofing & Contracting is working diligently to help people in these emergency situations.  We offer emergency roof repairs.  In situations where a roof is blown off, Universal Roofing can help.  We provide emergency service to tarp exposed roof areas.  We provide emergency repairs on flat roofs such as sealing openings and holes.  We can temporarily repair your roof to keep your home safe, in the process of filing a claim with your homeowner’s insurance.  We can also provide customers with an estimated cost of repairing their existing roof or in dire cases replacing their entire existing roof system.  Roof repairs and roof replacements can be done in a timely manner to eliminate more damage that can occur by water to the interior of one’s home.

Here is a recent post from Planet Save

One of the best features of solar panels is that they emit no greenhouse gas emissions or other pollution. Additionally, the fuel is free and there’s no risk of it increasing in price over the coming years.

Adding solar panels to your roof will not only make your home more energy efficient, but will also help you to save a substantial amount. According to the STA, solar thermal heating can provide a family of four with 50-65% of their hot water needs per year.

Although solar panels may seem expensive when you first buy them, they are a great investment and offer great value for money. Regardless of the weather conditions, solar panels will stand the test of time and will help you to be more energy-efficient within the home. It many places now, you’ll get a very good return on your investment, with the solar panels paying for themselves within a handful of years, and then you “making money” on your electricity bill savings for many more, perhaps even for decades!
