Prevent Moss Growth With Zinc Strips
Zinc strips are often used to protect roofs from the growth of algae, moss, and mildew. This protection is primarily achieved through a process called galvanic or sacrificial protection.
Zinc strips are typically installed near the roof's ridge, usually under the cap shingles or just below them. They are spaced evenly across the roof's surface, running vertically along the roof.
The key principle behind this protection is the sacrificial nature of zinc. Zinc corrodes and releases ions into the environment, and these ions are what provide the protection. The zinc strips slowly release these ions over time, continuously inhibiting the growth of algae, moss, and mildew on the roof.
It's important to note that the effectiveness of zinc strips may vary depending on factors such as the amount of rainfall in your area, the roof's slope, and the local climate. Additionally, zinc strips are not a solution for existing algae or moss problems; they are more of a preventive measure. If your roof already has significant algae or moss growth, it should be cleaned first, then consider installing zinc strips to prevent future growth.

Prevent Gutter Clogs With Leaf Guard Installation
Leaf guards, also known as gutter guards or gutter screens, are protective devices designed to cover or line rain gutters. They serve several important functions, primarily aimed at preventing debris, such as leaves, twigs, and other debris, from clogging up your gutters.
There are a couple different types of leaf guards and gutter screens available what are specifically designed based on the trees and debris falling from trees around your home. The micro mesh leaf guards are best for pine needles and small debris falling, while a looser mesh is designed specifically for falling leaves.
Arrow Point Roofing will work with you to identify the optimal gutter protection solution for your home.
The main reasons to add leaf guards to rain gutters:
Prevents Clogs: When leaves, twigs, and other debris accumulate in your gutters, they can block the flow of rainwater. This can lead to overflowing gutters, water damage to your home's exterior, and even basement flooding.
Reduces Maintenance: Without leaf guards, you would need to regularly clean out your gutters to remove debris.
Extends Gutter Lifespan: Clogged gutters can lead to water damage and corrosion over time.
Protects Home Exterior: When gutters overflow due to clogs, water can run down the side of your home, causing damage to the siding, paint, and foundation.
In summary, adding leaf guards to rain gutters is a practical and cost-effective way to protect your home from water damage, reduce maintenance, and prolong the life of your gutter system. They are particularly beneficial in areas with a high volume of leaves and debris, but they can also be advantageous in preventing clogs and damage in any location.

Prevent Ice Dams with Heat Tape Installation
Heat tape, also known as roof and gutter de-icing cable or heating cable, is a product designed to protect roofs from ice dams and the damage they can cause. Ice dams form when snow on the roof melts and then refreezes near the edge of the roof, creating a barrier that prevents proper drainage. This trapped water can leak into your home, causing water damage to ceilings, walls, and insulation. Heat tape helps prevent ice dams and protect your roof.
It's important to note that heat tape is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and its effectiveness depends on proper installation and usage. Here are some considerations:
Proper Installation: Heat tape should be installed according to the manufacturer's instructions by a qualified professional. Incorrect installation may not provide adequate protection.
Temperature Monitoring: Some heat tape systems come with temperature sensors or thermostats that automatically turn the cable on and off based on temperature conditions. This helps optimize energy usage and ensures the cable operates when needed.
Energy Efficiency: Using heat tape continuously can be expensive. It's essential to balance the need for ice dam prevention with energy efficiency. Some systems have controls that allow you to adjust the heat output.

Our caulking and exposed nails service provides several, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality. Here are some of the key advantages:
Weatherproofing: Caulking around exposed nails helps create a waterproof seal. This prevents moisture from infiltrating the nail holes, which can lead to water damage, rot, and deterioration of the surrounding materials. Properly sealed nails can extend the lifespan of your home's exterior surfaces.
Enhanced Aesthetics: Exposed nails can be unsightly, especially if they rust or corrode over time. Caulking over them provides a smooth, uniform surface, improving the appearance of your home's siding, trim, or other exterior features.
Improved Insulation: Caulk acts as an additional barrier against air infiltration. By sealing nail holes, you reduce drafts and improve the overall insulation of your home, which can result in energy savings and increased comfort.
Pest Prevention: Small gaps around exposed nails can serve as entry points for insects and pests. Caulking these gaps helps keep unwanted critters out of your home, protecting your property from potential infestations.
Long-Term Savings: By preventing moisture damage and reducing the need for repairs, caulking exposed nails can save you money in the long run. It can also help preserve the value of your home.
Overall Durability: Caulking exposed nails is a proactive step in maintaining the structural integrity of your home. It helps protect against common issues such as wood rot, which can compromise the stability of your home's exterior.
