Roof Replacement: Because Nobody Wants a Swimming Pool in Their Living Room

Let's be real, replacing your roof isn't the most thrilling purchase you'll ever make. But sometimes, it's an absolute must. You could have an old deteriorating roof or storm damage or both so you know you have to get a new roof or else you'll end up with bigger problems later. Your roof is your home's first line of defense against the elements, and when it starts to fail, it can lead to some pretty big problems. And nobody wants a swimming pool in their living room, right?

That's where the experts at TomKat Restoration come in. They'll give you an estimate and take care of the job for you, so you don't have to worry about a thing. Plus, when you get a new roof with TomKat Restoration, you're not just getting a boring old layer of shingles. Oh no, my friend. You're getting a whole new roofing system. That's right, we're talking the whole shebang.

This includes a detailed inspection of your ventilation system. And we're not just talking about the vents on your roof. We're talking about the soffits (intake) and the exhaust vents that make up the whole ventilation system, as well as the number and placement of exhaust vents. Trust us, you don't want two different systems working against each other up there. It's like having a party where half the guests hate each other. Not a good time.

And here's a pro-tip: having box vents or a ridge vent and an attic fan (which is very common) is a big no-no. In certain weather conditions, the attic fan can become the intake, which means your attic won't vent properly. And when your attic won't vent properly, it can lead to moisture buildup and damage to your roof and home. Yikes.

But fear not, because TomKat Restoration has got your back. We also perform an HVAC inspection to make sure that your bathroom and kitchen vents are properly vented outside and not into your attic. Unless you're trying to grow a secret mushroom garden up there, in which case we can't help you.

So while getting a new roof might not be the most exciting thing on your to-do list, it's necessary for protecting your home. And with TomKat Restoration you can rest easy knowing that you're getting a whole new roofing system that'll keep you and your belongings dry as a bone.
