MORE FROM GAF ROOF VIEWS
Storm season can span the entire year, which means that roofs need the strength to protect families and homes from extreme weather events. Scheduling regular professional roof inspections and roof maintenance can help keep your roof storm-ready.
Buying a home is the biggest financial investment many people will make. In a hot real estate market, homebuyers may be tempted to remove any conditions from their offer to purchase—including a roof inspection—so their bid wins the house.
Every roof is different, and that's especially true when comparing commercial vs residential roofing, also known as low-slope vs steep-slope roofing. Many roofing contractors start out installing residential roofs because they have a low cost of entry. The process requires minimal specialized equipment—most roofers are able to start out with a truck, a ladder, a nail gun, a compressor, and safety gear.
Roofers, are you ready? Here's your chance to help protect veterans who have protected our country. As a roofer, you know that a reliable roof protects what matters most. You're also uniquely qualified to support our troops by ensuring their homes and families are covered.
Winter weather isn't always the most friendly to a roof. This means that spring is the perfect time to inspect your roofing system and ensure everything remains in stable condition after a harsh winter.
Women in roofing are estimated to make up just about .5% of the entire roofing workforce in America. This figure is stark—and it shines a light on the tremendous opportunity within the industry to recruit talented women.
