Clogged gutters can create leaking into your home. Below are some examples of how water can get backed up, go behind the gutter, and into your home.
Best way to fix this issue:
Last week on Tuesday 21st of April 2015 we had a hail storm that hit certain cities in the Upstate, SC area. The three main areas that were hit by hail that was big enough to cause damage to your property is Northern Greenville, Greer and Travelers Rest.
This is important for home owners to know because hail damage to your roof voids not only your workmanship warranty with the contractor who installed your roof but also the manufacturer warranty. Hail damage at about an inch or larger can cut the life of your roof in half and can lead to leaks a few years down the road.
Most people don't file claims with their insurance because they don't want their rates to go up. What they don't realize is that the insurance company can raise everyones rates in the area that got hit with a storm and you could be the only one paying for everyone else's damage except yours.
We suggest that you find a local contractor to inspect your roof or even the contractor that may have recently replaced your roof to come out and make sure your investment didn't get damaged. Feel free to fill out a form for any questions and ES Roof is glad to help.

Roof replacement & Skylight installation competed by ES roof
This customers had their roof replaced by ES roof and they went with the Certainteed Landmark Moire Black Architectural Lifetime Shingles. They also had us install two Velux venting skylights for better ventilation and more natural lighting.
Some of the benefits of skylights extend beyond our environment and personal well-being. The increase in natural light that skylights provide have a variety of physical and psychological benefits. Skylights can help not only bring new life and energy to a room, but also improve our health and happiness.
Why Install Skylights?
You might be wondering which location of the house would benefit you when installing a skylight?
Es Roof completed a roof replacement in Travelers Rest, SC. The Customer originally had a metal roof that was installed improperly and was leaking. After removing the metal roof, ES Roof installed a limited Lifetime warranty Landmark Certainteed Hunter Green Architectural Shingles on the new replacement. The customer is happy with his brand new roof and no longer has any leaks.
Es roof removed shingles on a flat roof
The roof pitch in the area of the house where the porch is, was not engineered to have asphalt shingles installed there. The minimum recommended roof pitch of 4 in 12 is required for asphalt shingles to be installed.
Most composite shingle manufacturers base their warranties around the base minimum recommended pitch of 4 in 12 pitch. If you don't know how to understand the pitch number of your roof here's on way to envision it. For every 12 inches you travel on your ceiling the roof should rise 4 inches in height.
To fix the leaking roof ES Roof removed two leaking skylights on the screen porch roof and covered the openings with plywood. After fixing all the rotten and damaged areas and removing it down to plywood Es Roof installed Polyglass rolled roofing. First the bass roll and then the Polyglass top roll.
The customer is very happy and now can have their breakfast on their porch even when it rains because they no longer have any leaks in their porch.
The home owners in Greer, SC chose to replace their roof with the CertainTeed Landmark Moire Black AR Laminate Shingles. Many home owners are unsure whether they should choose laminated architectural shingles or 3-tab composition asphalt shingles when they go for a roof replacement.
Architectural (also known as dimensional, laminated or composite shingles) are constructed with a heavier base mat which multiple layers of material are adhered to. This gives the shingles a three dimensional look. Whereas the standard 3 tab shingles contains a flat layer with no dimensional "thickness" to it. Typically architectural shingles weigh almost 50% more than the standard 3 tab shingles. Dimensional shingles were developed in the 70's for the high end home market. Home owner's were looking for an asphalt shingle product that had the architectural appearance of cedar shingles while providing the performance of asphalt.
Architectural shingles typically have a minimum of 30 to 40 compared to 3 tab shingles of 15 to 20 years lifetime warranty depending on the manufacturer. Because of the heavier construction they are less likely to warp and they provide a much better wind resistance. Standard 3 tab shingles are typically rated for 60 mph winds while most architectural shingles are rated for 80 up to 120 mph.
Today laminated shingles are available in many different lifetime warranty lengths from 30 to 50 years. Typically, the cost of an architectural is 10-20% more than the traditional 3 tab shingles. Some of the higher end 50 year products can be as much as twice the cost. Keep in mind prices vary depending on the supplier and if it's peak season the prices do fluctuate. Nonetheless, many people consider a shingle upgrade as an investment that can increase their home's value and curb appeal. Architectural are preferred enough in some communities that homeowners associations will require them.
