Johnson Roofing Strongly Advises Seattle Residents to Consider Spring Inspections and Cleaning Following Extreme Winter

Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) March 29, 2012

Wet winter and spring months in the Pacific Northwest usually blur together into a consistently grey and rainy season. This year however, the Seattle metro area was treated to distinctly winter-like conditions for a couple of weeks, and the experts at Johnson Roofing, a Seattle roofing company, are ready for it.

Many believe that fall is the crucial season for inspecting and cleaning roof tiles, downspouts and gutters because of falling leaves and the impending wet weather.

This is no less true in spring, particularly after a prolonged period of cold and snowy weather.

Instead of leaves we find that blossoms and other fallen debris can cause problems if not removed. Gutters and downspouts can also be damaged from heavy snow and ice buildup, hampering their ability to move water safely away from the house’s foundation.

That is why it’s important to thoroughly inspect and clean your roof before serious problems occur and this checklist from Johnson Roofing should help:

First Things First, Ladder Inspection

To inspect your roof, unless you live underground, you’re going to need a ladder. It is important to make sure that while the ladder was stored no damage came to it. Check its structural integrity carefully by inspecting rungs and joints. And don’t forget when positioning the ladder to stay away from water-logged soil.

Look For Tile Damage

The cold and snowy weather could have done a number on your tiles. Extra weight on tree limbs and branches surely brought some of them down, with the ones positioned over your roof being the chief concern. Not only can the impact of falling cause damage but the accumulation of branches, snow and ice can pool water into areas not equipped to deal with large amounts of moisture. Check entire roof for missing or loose tiles.

Sweep off Debris and Moss

Not all roofs are designed to be walked on, but common composite tiles are tough and resilient. As long as your roof isn’t too pitched, wait for a dry spell and bust out the broom to sweep off debris from trees, tiles and moss. But be careful to keep fall just a season that is several months away. Oh, and stay away from pressure washers…they can actually damage your roof.

Clear Debris from Gutters and Downspout Openings

Some of the smaller debris has surely found its way into your gutters and downspouts. Carefully clear it out so water can be directed away from your house. Bring a bag up with you for debris because dropping it on the ground creates another unnecessary step.

Flush Downspouts and Gutters

Run a hose up and flush out the gutter system. It will take more pressure clearing out downspouts, so feed the hose into the opening. When clearing gutters, be sure to notice if water pools. It may suggest damage to the gutter resulting in an inability to use gravity to move water. Ice and snow buildup can bend gutters easily and change their specifically designed angle.

If you find any damage, be sure you contact a trusted Seattle roofer for repairs, preferably one with lots of experience, good reviews and some kind of warranty on their work. Johnson Roofing offers a 10 year limited warranty on materials and labor.

OLYN Roofing Chosen to Preserve Historic Willard House and Clock Museum

Grafton, MA (PRWEB) March 22, 2012

OLYN Roofing, New Englands premiere roofing specialist, has been hired to install a new synthetic cedar shake roof at the Willard House and Clock Museum in Grafton, whose priceless collection of colonial-era clocks was threatened by water damage.

It is a story about time; and the beauty of the instruments we measure it by.

Its about how the technology of a bygone era is intersecting with todays state-of-the-art building techniques to safeguard the legacy of a famed New England clockmaker.

In the sleepy town of Grafton, Massachusetts, stands the Willard House and Clock Museum, home to over 80 Willard clocks, timeless treasures that are all the creations of Simon Willard and his family of famous clockmakers. This is the oldest clock factory in the country, and a visit here is literally a step back in time.

The Willard House celebrates the work of Simon Willard along with his four brothers and their father Benjamin, who pioneered the clock industry in colonial America. By the end of the 18th century, Simon had become the premiere clockmaker of his time, even working directly with President Thomas Jefferson. His clocks were so prized that even during his own lifetime, they were copied and counterfeited.

Some of Simon’s notable surviving clocks reside in the Old State House in Boston, the gallery clock in Old Supreme Court Chamber in Washington, DC, as well as the Roxbury tall clock in the Oval Office of the White House. Such priceless timepieces need to be preserved and protected from damage.

The clocks were not fully protected, though, after a 2011 winter storm and the ravages of time combined to cause the cedar shake roof to leak at the Willard House and Clock Museum, threatening the precious collection inside. Museum Director, Patrick Keenan, recalls discovering the leak:

Our building restorer, Ron Votta, and I were showing the museum to Ludvig Oechslin, Director of Switzerlands Mus

Can you get a roofing tax rebate and a window rebate?

Question by lalewicz: Can you get a roofing tax rebate and a window rebate?
Is the government tax rebate for energy efficient replacement of roofs and windows a one time slush pile, or can you qualify for $ 1500 for roofing and $ 1500 for windows?
One person mentioned $ 6000 which I found confusing. Another said must owe $ 1500 in taxes to qualify. I am assuming that means you have already paid in more than $ 1500 in federal tax money for the year to qualify to get up to $ 1500 of it back. If that is the case I surely do qualify in spades.

Best answer:

Answer by Wayne Z

The total credit for all qualified energy improvements is limited to $ 1500 total.

What kind of job can a person with roofing contractor experience find?

Question by Windstar: What kind of job can a person with roofing contractor experience find?
My brother is a roofing contractor. He has more than 20 years of experience in this field. He used to have his own roofing business which was successful up until now (because of economy crisis). Now he is without job. He has been trying to find a job with a large roofing companies. However, he has an experience in residential roofing rather than commercial. I was wondering if there is possibly a quick course that he could take at home to be able to do something else. It could be roofing related or something else. Please advise. He has lots of pride and all that really brings him down. Thank you!

Best answer:

Answer by Mike
How about a Roofing/Building Material wholesale company? Outside sales position? His experience would really be beneficial to his customers. Or a technical support or trainer for a roofing manufacturer try the Metal & Asphalt Shingle manufacturers, if he was in the business he hopefully should have some contacts to reach out to. My best advice would be to network within the industry, and to be patient. Something should come along; but not without his local “industry” knowing he is out there and looking for an opportunity.
