Learning About Roofing Maintenance and Repairs

Hello, I am Nina Johnston. Welcome to my website about roofing maintenance and repairs. My first home was in a dire state of disrepair when I purchased it. The roof was falling apart at the junctions and even started to allow rainwater into the attic. I knew that I had to act fast to keep the leaking water from ruining my home. As a result, I received a crash course in roofing maintenance and repairs. I created this site to share the knowledge I gained with my readers. I hope to help everyone understand how to best care for their roofing materials. Thanks.
