Best Times to Schedule Exterior Home Improvement

With 2020 in our rearview, it’s time for a fresh start and what better way to begin than with exterior home improvements? Most people have spent the past year showing the interior of their home some TLC, thanks to the pandemic. But now it’s time to look at what needs improvement outside our home. Living […]

Preventing Storm Damage in Chicago

In the Chicago area, last month was a rough one in terms of storm damage. Most home exteriors took a beating, from shingles to siding, windows to gutters.

Here are some steps you can take to minimize storm damage to your home. Taking these precautionary measures can mean the difference between a costly home repair and no repair at all.

Roof Hail Damage and the Insurance Company’s Role

Spring has finally sprung and with it, the threat of roof hail damage. Especially here in the Midwest, a brutal winter full of ice, snow, and dangerous temperatures is followed by a volatile Spring/Summer, giving our roofs quite a beating. Most homeowners have homeowner’s insurance but whether or not their policy covers roof hail damage is another matter.

Tear Offs vs. Second Roof Layers

When contemplating a new roof, many people hope to have second layer shingles installed instead of an entire new roof. Why? Second roof layers are cheaper, cleaner, and have a faster installation time. While those are enticing reasons to choose second roof layers, it is not always the smartest decision. Installing a second roof layer is like sweeping dust under the rug or putting a band aid over a deep wound that needs more attention.

Finding a Trustworthy Roofer

One of the biggest obstacles homeowners face is finding a trustworthy roofer, especially when it’s important to act quickly to minimize damage to your home. Although it may be tempting to pick the first contractor that pops up on Google, it is important to know they are reputable. You wouldn’t pick a mechanic for your car using the eeny, meaney, miney, mow method. Why should your roofing contractor be any different? Look for these qualities to make sure your roofer is trustworthy.

How to Help Your Roof Withstand the Weather

Here in the Midwest, we get our share of bad weather throughout four very different, highly volatile seasons. From wild tornados and thunderstorms in spring/summer to merciless ice storms and blizzards in winter, a well-installed roof is responsible for keeping you safe no matter what happens.

A newer shingle on the market is specifically designed to survive the tough weather. It’s the shingles available from Malarkey Roofing Products, which Pro-Home Services is now proud to be offering customers.
