All About Danielsville, GA
As the seat of Madison County, Georgia, Danielsville is a quaint small town with a lot to offer folks who want to visit as well as local homeowners. The village was founded way back in 1821 and named for General Allen Daniel, a leader in the Georgia Militia. Though rich in history dating back to that era, Danielsville remains a small town with a population of under one thousand. There are many nearby attractions that make this a lovely visit in the greater Athens, GA area.
The Sandbar is a fun recreational center on the Broad River offering kayaking and other water attractions such as swimming and picnicking. You can also enjoy the beautiful natural scenery from an inner tube in a river at Slow Water or Watson Mill Bridge State Park. This area of the Peach State has many waterways and places to explore natural beauty, but visitors and locals alike get to enjoy the vibrant nightlife and shopping experiences in nearby Athens, GA as well. With over 75 bars in the University of Georgia area and countless local cafes, Athens has a lot of fun experiences available. For unique interactive fun, there’s escape rooms and even a horror/comedy experience at Zombie Farms!
We were recently called out to Danielsville GA to help a local homeowner with their dormer gable roof, which was leaking and worn. While most homeowners think roof repairs are cheaper, sometimes it’s best to fully remove and replace an older roof. If there’s damage to the roof’s underlayer and multiple problems in different areas, leading to repeated leaks, then replacing the roof really is the most cost-effective roofing solution.
After a thorough roof inspection, we determined that this Danielsville GA brick home needed a roof replacement. After a consultation, the homeowner had picked a cost-effective but durable architectural shingle roof in colonial slate color to match their brick home. The roof had a somewhat complex look, with a peaked main roof with gables and two dormer windows, resulting in various seams and angles for our team to cover, including roof vents.
The trained MLW roofers were up for the task and quickly got to work. First we fully removed the existing work, hauling it away and making sure the property was respected. Next, we installed ice and water shield and a new synthetic underlay to protect the home from moisture. We also installed Landmark Architectural Shingles in colonial gray, then finished the roof with a ridge vent to improve energy efficiency, as well as pipe boots with collars. Finally, we installed a new drip edge to ensure proper water flow.
The customer loved our superior service and were impressed by our fast response to their call. MLW All Phase Construction & Roofing became Danielsville GA’s trusted roofers by always treating our clients with utmost integrity and respect. Contact us today for your a roof inspection.
These 3 steps can help you minimize water damage to your home while you wait for a roof replacement or roof repair.
No time is ever a good time for your roof to begin failing. As an Athens-Clarke County homeowner, roof problems are often the cause of major headache. Whether your roof is getting moldy, springing a leak, has lost or curling shingles or is letting unwanted visitors inside, a roof with problems warrants professional help. But sometimes your roofing contractor is not able to get to your roofing problem right away, perhaps because they are booked or it is a holiday. In some cases, you may need to perform a temporary roof repair yourself until your roofers can get to your job.
1) Cover Your Roof with a Tarp
One of the quickest and most inexpensive ways you can temporarily repair your roof in an emergency is to cover the area that is involved with a plastic tarp. Find one that is intended for outdoor use and is large enough to cover the whole area that is affected. Pull the edges of the tight down tightly, smoothing it out. Nail the edges down, covering the nail heads with roofing cement to keep rain from leaking into your home.
If nailing your tarp to your roof is not something you are comfortable with, many tarps come with grommets around the edge, which can be used to tie it in place. Use strong twine or rope to tie the grommet to a sturdy location.
Also remember that it is not advisable to use bricks or weights around the edges of a tarp. It can be a hazard – especially if one falls down from the roof onto a person below.
2) Fix Loose, Curling or Missing Shingles
If you have loose, curling or missing shingles, you can temporarily adhere them back to your roof. Remember this fix is not permanent and will only last for a short time. Follow the following steps to perform this temporary repair:
Straighten out curling shingles by using a heat gun to soften them. Glue them down with roofing cement.
Loose shingles can be slid back under the bottom edge of the above row of shingles. Then you can nail them down with 6d galvanized nails. Cover nail heads with roofing cement.
Any cracked or worn looking joints can also use an application of roofing cement.
3) Contact a trusted local roofing contractor
Remember that the first two tips are only temporary and that reaching out to a trusted roofing contractor, like MLW Construction & Roofing, is the best way to prevent thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home.
