The last thing you probably expect to hear from a contractor is to how to avoid spending money with them, but we'd rather help you avoid problems like a leaky roof so you can afford to have us install that new kitchen for you instead!

All kidding aside, nowadays most leaking roofs are caused by one thing - ice dams.  Modern shingles are better at resisting damage from wind and sun, but ice dams act like a pry bar to lift shingles right off the roof, allowing water to seep through the unprotected roof decking.  These leaks damage ceilings and walls, get into insulation and wiring, and contribute to the growth of mold.  The last thing any family wants is an emergency roof repair in the middle of winter, so we've put together a guide for you to learn how to prevent ice dams.  To get your copy of the guide, click below, enter your name and email address, and we'll send the link to you for the free download.

And if you do happen to need emergency repairs or are considering a new roof, please consider Pillar General Contracting.  We're licensed, bonded and insured and are based in Bucks County.  We're a full-time, year round business and offer 24/7 help if you spring a leak.  All of our new roofs are installed with premium ice and water shielding, which can prevent or significantly reduce damage from ice dams in the future.
