    "Thank you for a tremendous job. Through all three parts of the work I've had done this year, Reilly has come across as total classy organization. I appreciated the professionalism and courtesy of your entire crew, and of course your good humor added to the enjoyment of what could have been a real inconvenience. My neighbors are the kind of people who ask, and I'll tell them all--with a plethora of rapturous and ecstatic enthusiasm--that I couldn't have been more pleased."

  • Signs of a Bad Roof

    [caption id="attachment_2434" align="alignleft" width="200" caption="Roof Repair"]Roof[/caption]


    Summer is almost over, and after this great weather, we will be getting hit with a lot of wind, debris and a couple months down the road....SNOW! Summer is the perfect time to have someone inspect your roof to see if it's safe, sturdy and ready to handle the upcoming seasons. If you're looking for a company, Reilly Painting excels in repairing, inspecting and re-building new roofs. Here are some signs to tell if your roof is in need of repair.

    • Interior ceiling stains
    • Stained or rotted fascia board or soffits
    • Blistered, curled, or split shingles.
    • Loose or missing shingles or tiles.
    • Loose nails.
    • Exposed nails (can lead to leaks in the roof).
    • Dark patches on asphalt shingles and/or large amounts of granules in the rain gutters (the granular coating is wearing away).
    • Sagging either on the ridges or in the center of the roof.
    • Broken or loose shingles at the ridge lines and hip lines.
    • Rusty or corroded metal (flashing) and loose shingles in the valleys, plumbing vents, or near chimneys. It may be necessary to remove excess debris and leaves to inspect thoroughly (and lots of leaf debris can cause damage to these sensitive areas of the roof).
    • Rusty metal or loose shingles in locations where a vertical side of the house meets the roof
    • Overflowing gutters or excess water pooling near the foundation of the house.
    • For flat roofs, look for blisters (pop the blisters with a knife and coat them with roofing cement to prevent further damage), depressions near vent pipes (can also be filled with roofing cement), separations in flashing and clogged drains
