WNY Projects: Cape Cod Roof Replacement

House Roof under repair

We’ve been working hard to help as many homeowners as we can during our busy season! Recently we worked on a roofing job at a Cape Cod house in Cheektowaga. We thought this would be a typical roof job, but when we removed the old roof, it actually turned into something much bigger. Our amazing team was up for the challenge on this roof replacement project to get this home looking good as new!

All Around WNY: Working Hard In A Shortened Season

While this year’s roofing season has been shortened, we’ve been working hard to help as many WNY homeowners as possible! As we moved through the phases in WNY, we’ve been incredibly thankful to get back into the swing of things and resume what we do best.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve helped repair roofs, install new gutters, put on new siding, and even rebuild some vintage posts beneath a flat roof. Let’s take a look at a few projects we’ve been up to…

William C. Rott All Around WNY in Summer: Roofing, Siding, Soffits, & More

It may be hot out there, but our team has been outside working hard all summer long! We’ve been helping repair all of the damage from last winter and help shield homes all around Western New York for many more winters to come.

Installing new siding, roofing, or even just a soffit can transform a home in so many ways—not only from a protection standpoint, but aesthetically as well. Some of our siding jobs especially has made the home look brand new!

Let’s take a look at some of the recent projects we’ve been up to so far this summer…

Roof Repair In The Winter? It Can Be Done!

We have been in the business of roofing since 1909. With over 100-years of experience, we have learned that damage done by winter can also be fixed in the winter.

Yes, that’s right, we will do what many will not attempt, and we guarantee that it will be done well!

Why repair a roof in the winter and not wait until spring or summer? The answer is that there is a problem that needs to be fixed as soon as possible.

What Do Blood Blisters and Roofs Have In Common?

This past Saturday my daughter Angela, feeling sick, slept downstairs on the couch. In the morning, she informed me that our 6-month-old dog had bitten her foot—her big toe to be precise—during the night.

An initial inspection seemed to confirm, that indeed, some act of violence had been perpetrated against her person. Dried blood was smeared in the troubled area. She testified to having seen the dog’s mouth still upon her foot when she woke.

Except for what seemed like the most obvious evidence ever presented, with an eyewitness to boot, I would have not believed it.

I struggled to imagine why this very peaceful, loving pup would thus turn savage during the night past.

Well, you know what?  Turns out, things are not always as they seem. The evidence lied. What? Yes!

Upon cleaning the affected area, all that remained was a partially opened blood blister.

With the revised view of the situation, and a few moments of re-reflection, we surmised what really happened.

Turns out, my daughter had gained a blister the previous day at basketball. And as it had begun to open, our dog found it and began to lick the wound, administering the only healing balm she knew how.

That’s a lot like roofing.

As we open up roofs, we find types of blood blisters formed by previous bad roofing work.

And it seems like we are the cause and culprit when, in fact, we are only finding and addressing the injury to make it whole once again.

Who do you know that needs the medicine man of roofing industry to solve problems that surely exist, but will remain unknown and never properly addressed by others?

Have them call William C Rott to shield their home.
