Home damaged by Hurrican Ike in Dublin, Ohio in 2008

With a total damage price tag that reached over $1 billion, Hurricane Ike was one of the costliest storms to ever hit Ohio. Unlike most storms that are localized, Hurricane Ike was so widespread that most of the state suffered severe damage. Ask anyone who lived in Ohio at the time and you’ll hear horror stories of down trees, massive hail damage, and never ending power outages. Most people will probably start their story with I remember it like it was yesterday. Some could probably even point you to spots where you can still see the damage caused by debris flying through the air.

Newman Roofing was right there alongside their neighbors helping to restore order, repair damaged homes, and replace roofs. They assisted numerous customers in getting their lives back to normal. Unfortunately, as clear as the memories of the storm are in everyone’s mind, the devastating hurricane occurred 10 years ago. For numerous residents in Dublin, as well as the rest of the state, this means it’s time for a close inspection of their roof.

The average roof has a lifespan of 10-15 years. The 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Ike serves as a reminder that it is time for thousands of neighborhood roofs due to be replaced. Just like they were during that devastating time, Newman Roofing is here to help with all your roofing needs.

Is it time to repair or replace your roof?

A 10-15 year lifespan can be quite a difference, so how does one know if it’s time to replace their roof or just do a few repairs to keep it in good working order? It can be difficult to determine, but Newman Roofing performs roof inspection every day for this very reason. Some of the things a qualified roofing specialist looks for are:

  • Severely worn or missing shingles
  • Leaks in the roof
  • Stains along the home’s exterior walls
  • Mold on the roof
  • Sagging or staining on the underside of the roof.

If your home is showing one or more of these symptoms, it may be time to replace your roof. Newman roofing will do a thorough assessment to determine if repairs can be done to extend the life of your roof or if it needs to be replaced entirely.

Why choose asphalt shingles for your new roof?

Asphalt shingles are America’s number one roofing choice for good reason. They are affordable and easy to install. Available in a variety of colors and textures, homeowners can choose the perfect style to match their home and personality. If wood or slate is more your style, many asphalt shingles are available that mimic the look at a fraction of the cost and today’s asphalt shingles can last anywhere from 15-30 years.
