Extremely necessary but seldom thought of, roofs are one of the main health factors of a home. A roof should be regularly treated and maintained with care yet are often neglected until they fall into disrepair. To rectify the disconnect, the National Roofing Week was born.
This week-long event takes place every summer during the first full week of June. Each day features different activities designed to raise awareness and celebrate the roofing industry. Keep reading for more on National Roofing Week 2018 (June 3rd – June 9th.).
The Significance of Your Home’s Roof
The primary focus of National Roofing Week: to increase awareness regarding the significance of your home or business’ roof. The National Roofing Contractors Association organized the celebration as an effort to emphasize roof maintenance around the nation and promote being proactive. Home and business owners will often completely neglect their roof until it is damaged or causing issues. The key to preventing these issues is maintaining your roof’s structure.
The Good Deeds of The Industry
This industry holiday also seeks to recognize the contributions made by the roofing industry. Whether it’s superb customer service, pro bono roof repairs after a devastating storm, or roofing work that is actually done correctly, the NRCA seeks to shine a light on the good deeds done in the roofing industry. There are many roofing companies and many of them being family owned – like ours! When a family works together, good things happen.
Professional Roofing Contractors
The NRCA also sought to establish National Roofing Week to highlight the importance of hiring professional roofing contractors. These professionals are trained to make practical and informed decisions about roof repair, maintenance, and replacement. If you want an opinion you can trust, professional roofing contractors are who to go to.
