While the number of residential and commercial fires has gone down recently, fires are still a big problem. There are more than 356,000 residential fires annually in the United States, which cause an estimated $7.26 billion in damages.
House fires vary in size and severity depending on the circumstances and the type of house. However, no matter how small or large the fire is, the roof always takes the brunt of it. The smoke and heat of the fire rises and usually damages the roof enough that your Houston roof may need to be replaced.
If you suffered a home fire, you need to consider a few things before you hire a Houston roofer to repair or replace the roof. Your roof works hard to protect your home, but it also adds its own aesthetic beauty. If you are going to replace it, you should think about the following.
- What type of roofing materials you would like for your new roof
- The benefits and drawbacks of different roofing materials
- What kind of roof design or style you desire
- How energy efficient your new roof will be
