    Fortunately I just found out from the Shaker Heights housing inspector that everything passed inspection and that all of the violations have been successfully corrected. David did an excellent job in coordinating and assuring high-quality work on all of the many projects that were done here. We will definitely use Reilly Painting again in the future for other projects.

  • Winter Roofing Problems: Ice Dams

    [caption id="attachment_5834" align="alignleft" width="192" caption="Roofing Problems: Ice Dams"]Dam[/caption]

    Do you have winter roofing problems? Looking for a Cleveland roofing company? Reilly Painting handles all major roofing problems, like Ice Dams:

    Ice dams form when snow and ice build up inside gutters and along roof ridges. This ice prevents additional water from draining properly, and as it pools, it may infiltrate shingles, underlayment, ceilings and walls. According to UMassAmherst’s Building and Construction Technology department, “Proper insulation and roof ventilation can stop ice dams from forming, prevent damage and lower energy bills.”

    Unfortunately, there is no way to completely prevent ice dams. Home and business owners can control this type of damage, though.

    First, it’s important to have your roof regularly inspected to ensure its integrity and confirm that water cannot seep underneath roofing materials. Second, it’s important that you have high-quality ceiling insulation, and an effective roof ventilation system. These precautions will help to maintain a constant roof temperature, lowering the chances of ice damming.

    1. Dealing with ice dams… it is definitely not a fun process. Improve your roof ventilation so you don’t have to worry about it.
