Home is one of the most important places in our lives. It’s where many of our biggest moments take place and where we relax and unwind. Because of its significance and value in our lives, it’s important we take care of the roof over our heads.
As important as it is, the roof is sometimes overlooked. To keep it in top shape, it’s important to have frequent inspections. Expert roofing company, AMDG Exterior Contracting, repairs and replaces roofs across the Main Line.
Owner Jason Campuzano has over 20 years of experience in the industry, in both commercial and residential projects. When a homeowner reaches out, the process is swift. One of their home improvement consultants is in touch, typically the same day. During a consultation, the consultant documents damage and then makes a recommendation. In cases where a roof needs to be replaced, the consultant takes photos of the damage to show the homeowner. “People can’t see what’s going on on their roof, so they rely on a trusted roofer to give them accurate information. We’ll go over that with the customer so they can see the condition of the roof,” explains Campuzano.

AMDG has experience with all roof types, including the popular shingle and flat roofs, having installed and repaired thousands of them. Shingle roofs have a life expectancy of about 25-40 years depending on the type of shingle used and how well it is ventilated. Campuzano recommends homeowners have pitched roofs inspected every five years. Those with flat roofs should have them inspected every three years. By taking these preventative measures, it can decrease costly repairs or replacements in the future. Having a roof inspected also allows for damage to caulking, flashing and neoprene pipe collars to be caught early and fixed.
Spring is the perfect time to have a roof inspection done and to consider undergoing maintenance or repairs. “Winter takes its tolls on our roofs. The change of the seasons causes a lot of expansion and contraction in the roof system, which causes seams to open up and flashing and caulking to crack, so after winter is a great time to do the inspection,” says Campuzano.
