Roof and leak repairs could be as simple as replacing a shingle or putting a bead of silicone on a problem area. While onsite, Horch Roofing's experienced crew can inspect your roof's overall performance and make the necessary repairs or recommendations. For any repair needs please contact our office at 207-273-1111 for roof maintenance.
Gutters on your home are useless unless they function properly. Keeping your gutters clean and the downspouts flowing is very important and relatively easy to do. Cleaning the debris out your gutters once a year will help you avoid an overflow, which can lead to leaking, water damage, and costly trim/siding repairs.
The Horch Roofing crew will rid your roof of lichens, mold, and moss using a pressure washer and mild chemical solution. The solution can harm plants and flowers, so if your home has no gutters, we would not recommend the solution. However, a pressure washer in conjunction with zinc strips is also effective. Zinc strips are small metal strips applied to the top course of shingles so that when rainwater falls, the water reacts with the zinc to inhibit moss and lichen growth. Most modern shingle granules are treated with zinc and copper; however, zinc strips can be helpful in extreme problem areas, such as heavy tree cover and damp areas. **We do not recommend roof washing in all scenarios. In many cases roof washing is not recommended by Horch Roofing, due to the age of the roof/current condition of the shingles. For further information please contact our Sales office, and speak with a Sales Representative.
Don't hesitate to call when snow buildup becomes a problem. Winters in Maine can wreak havoc on your roof. Not only can this lead to leaks, but the weight of snow and ice can become an issue on lower pitch roofs. Our expertise on snow and ice removal makes us the go-to roofers in Midcoast Maine.
For eaves that habitually build up ice due to heat loss, constant shading, and other factors, we can apply heat tape to eaves and gutters. Simply plug in the heat tape, and snow and ice will slowly melt off your eaves. Heat tape is also useful in valleys that gather large amounts of snowfall. **Heat tape is not a permanent solution to ice dam issues on your roof. The majority of ice dam issues we see are due to a lack of insulation or bad ventilation in a given area. A building scientist or energy auditor can assist building owners with inspecting the root of the ice dam problems.

It may sound rude, but it's true! Here at Horch Roofing, we don't want to see you again. Don't worry, it's not you. It's us.
Every home needs a long-lasting and leak-free roof, but the process of roof replacement or repair can be daunting. You need time to research what roofing material and color to choose, evaluate your budget, and to determine how to pay for the work.
Many consumers believe that waiting to schedule their roof installation or repair during the "slow season" is the best way to ensure their project gets done quickly and affordably. Not true! With the recent housing boom and warmer winters, there are no "slow seasons", sales and installation crews are busy year round, and pricing is the same no matter the season!
