3 Reasons To Get Your Roof Checked During A Drought

Connecticut is currently in the grips of one of the longest-running droughts on record for the state. With the focus on water-efficiency, maintenance for your roof might have been moved to the back burner. However, there are three main reasons why it’s necessary to still check your roof during a drought.

3 Reasons To Get Your Roof Checked During A Drought | Roofing Specialist | CT | Landmark Exteriors |

Fire Risk. The most important reason to get your roof inspected during a drought is to ensure that your property is not at risk for any possible fires. This is the perfect time for you to upgrade your roofing or siding material to a product with a better fire protection rating.

Extra UV damage. More days without rain means more days without cloud coverage. This high level of UV ray exposure increases the chance of damage to your roofing materials. However, Cedar-Life products block the sun, protecting the natural color of your roof for years to come. Contact Landmark Exteriors Cedar-Life division for more information.

Preventing future leaks. It will rain eventually, and when it does, the last thing you want is for water to be leaking through your roof and damaging your property. By getting your roof inspected and repaired during a drought, you will minimize your chances of any leaks, caused by your dried-out roofing materials.

We’re all guilty of it – waiting until something becomes a problem before we take action. A leaky roof. Clogged gutters. Damaged siding. If you’re in Fairfield County CT or the surrounding areas, our team at the Home Care division has you covered!

How To Spend Mother’s Day In Connecticut

This Sunday, it’s all about the moms in our lives — grandmothers and great-grandmothers included! And Connecticut is the perfect place to help you celebrate the day with them.

Take mom for a meal. Get your mom out of the kitchen, and treat her to a Mother’s Day meal. Restaurants in Connecticut are helping you celebrate by offering prix fixe menus, special a la carte items, buffets, and more.

Enjoy the great outdoors. If your mother is a fitness junkie, take her on a hike — she can celebrate her special day while still getting her steps in! There are plenty of trails to explore in Connecticut, including Southford Falls, Bear Mountain, and Spruce Brook Ravine to name a few.

Sip on a drink — or two. There are plenty of wineries or breweries in Connecticut, and luckily, many of them are hosting budget-friendly special events for your loved ones. Litchfield Distillery is offering tours and free tastings of whiskey, bourbon, gin, and vodka. The vineyards will have live music, picnic options (for pre-order only), painting classes, and more.

Plan a day trip. Take your mom to the first renaissance fair of the season, a relaxing cruise along the Connecticut River in Haddam, or the Fairfield Dogwood Festival (featuring 200 flowering dogwood trees, music, and food). Check out Connecticut’s event calendar for your full list of options.

We hope you enjoy your Mother’s Day celebrations!
