Bixby Roofers- Lending a Helping Hand

Bixby Roofers- Old age wisdom teaches us what we have before we embark on the journey we call life. We have to have a good foundation. The statement is true enough in regards to life, sports and even building with blocks, but when it comes to homes they don’t say “well at least you have floor underneath you.” Instead they tell someone “at least you have a roof over your head.”


Anyone who has lived in a house with a leaky roof, monitoring buckets, and the color change on their ceiling can confirm a good roof is a cornerstone to happy living.


With a bad foundation, an old and deteriorating roof is a devastating and critical problem that could get the dominoes falling on the inevitable destruction of house and home. It can also take a toll on the family living inside.


Some people look at a leaky roof as a minor inconvenience, something that a few pots, pans, and towels can fix. However, much like medicines that treat the symptoms and do not fix the root of the problems can lead to false fixes.


A leaky roof can lead to mold and mildew. There are signs of these problems, but can also be odorless and naked to the human eye. Mold can lead to several problems including respiratory issues, illness, and even death. A consistent leaky roof can easily lead to an increase in mold and spores throughout a house. Water can also lead to rot. The rot can start in a roof which is dangerous enough, but a leaky roof can lead to water buildup in the walls and floor, as well as deep within the foundation. A leaky roof can easily lead to a family walking on thin ice where the slightest step could lead to a collapsing roof or floor.


The best way to guarantee your family’s safety is to hire some Bixby roofers. A homeowner should look for a company that wants to give back to their community and stress safety within the home.


Roofscapes Exteriors showcases their recent work on residential and commercial buildings in their portfolio in order to see what can be accomplished. If you’re seeking out roof repairs or renovation, customer reviews are also a great area to go to see the variety of comments and recommendations.


Construction, especially on homes, should have heart. Home is not only where the heart is, but it’s where the heart goes. Nothing seems to bring tears to the eyes of people like seeing someone who desperately needs a home or roof, but due to circumstances is not able to afford it. A roofing company should give back to their community by supplying the homes with stable, durable, and long lasting roofing systems.


If you’re in the need of a new roofing system or repairs, give Roofscapes Exteriors a call!

Caution: Ice Dams

An ice dam is a ridge of ice that can build up and form at the edge of your roof. When snow builds up on your roof, the snow underneath will start to melt from the heat your house is creating. This meltwater will then run down to the eaves, and because eaves tend to be the coldest point on the roof, it freezes. Once this happens, meltwater will continue to run down the roof, and the ice will continue to grow due to the initial ice that froze in the eave of the roof. As the meltwater continues to drip with nowhere to go, a water backup will occur.

Standing water and your roof are never a happy mix. If you see this happening contact us right away for a free inspection.
