What causes damage on the roof?
Most commonly, high winds can rip and even pull off shingles, leaving the roof deck, underlayment or old shingles from a previous roof all exposed to rain, hail, and wind.
Heavy winds can also curl and lift shingles by breaking the seal that bonds them together, leaving your roof extremely vulnerable to weather damage.
A hail storm can leave dents and divots in shingles, destroying the protective granules that preserve against rain and sun damage.

Why the name Covering?
After years in the roofing, construction and home service industry we have seen a big need for simplicity and quality service. Instead of starting with margins and profit, we wanted to take a whole new approach to how we service customers. We started with people in mind, and built from there.
