What a conundrum. Los Angeles roofers are raining business this year. Why? First of all, as of the beginning of February, downtown LA had gotten more rain in 2017 than the average norm in an entire year. This is pretty much the tale across Southern California.
Since December the rain stats have been almost two times the average throughout much of the state. According to the Western Regional Climate Center, the period from October 2016 to February 2017 was wetter in California than any other years since the records began in 1895.
KTLA reported: “The National Weather Service on Monday afternoon said the downtown weather station, which is at USC, had recorded 15.44 inches of rain as of 2 p.m. In a normal “water year,” the site gets 14.93 inches of rain.”
“This winter, after five years of drought, the state has seen heavy rain and snow. Statewide snowpack in the Sierra Nevada, a crucial source of drinking water, was at 173 percent of normal as of Monday. By the end of January, nearly half the state was out of drought, according to the federal U.S. Drought Monitor. A year earlier, more than 95 percent of the state was in drought.”
J and J Roofing, located near Silverlake and Los Feliz, has been flooded with calls and is raining business. (Yep, play on words.) Known for their quality and customer’s trust level – it was not surprising that when roofs began to leak they got under water with all those phone calls.
“People don’t even know they have a leak until it starts raining, usually.” Says John Glass, one of the owners. “We try to convince people to get a roof check every year or two, but you know – out of sight, out of mind. When the rains began we would get literally hundreds of calls a day.”
J and J Roofing, top Los Angeles roofers, had so many calls they had to stop accepting new clients until this month. So if you have some roof work you need done, now is the time to make an appointment.
