The issues fall into two different categories: Environmental Impact Risk Prevention.

Environmental Impact

According to the National Roofing Contractor's Association residential and commercial buildings account for 30-40 percent of the US carbon emissions. This has created more demand for green roofs and materials with next generation insulation systems. It's also increased the demand for roofing systems that qualify for environmentally friendly tax credits! At C.H.I. we can help our customers get an ecologically advanced roof system if that is what they need. Call 513-731-ROOF if you'd like to learn more about how we can be good to the environment and to your building!  

Risk Prevention

By nature, roofs are meant to handle the great outdoors. The roofing industry is evolving to handle the more extreme weather patterns that have been hitting North America in the last few years. If the precipitation increases in your area, your roof can feel it. You'll want to spend mor time paying attention to your roof, your attic, and the interior of your home. If you see any leaks or precipitation inside your roofing system, its time to call 513-731-ROOF for a free consultation!
