We’re prepared to help when you need us most.
Common Roofing Issues
We use premium residential roofing products from respected manufacturers like Owens Corning. But even these products can become damaged. The number of causes is great, but there are a few common reasons we are called for roof repair services. Whether you have an obvious leak or suspect you have damage, contact us today for a free inspection.
Storm Damage – Not every storm is powerful enough to cause damage to roofing materials. But when one that is passes through your neighborhood, there is little you can do to prevent destruction. Depending on the materials you have on your surface and the type of weather that has passed through, your issue can vary. We’re equipped to handle it all.
Asphalt roofing is incredibly popular because it is lightweight, durable and affordable. When you combine how lightweight it is with how the shingles are installed in overlapping rows, you have a surface that is vulnerable to high winds. When a gust gets under the edge of the shingles, it can peel them back and leave exposed underlayment. The nails that were holding down the shingles can come up as well, tearing the underlayment and exposing your wood decking. This is an emergency roof repair situation that cannot wait.
Age – All roofs have a lifespan. Whether it is 20 or 75 years, it will deteriorate and weaken over time. You can extend the life of your surface by maintaining it well, but it will inevitably need roof repair or replacement.
Poor Installation – When it comes to new roof installation, you should always leave it to the pros. Our years of experience and training allow us to install materials according to manufacturer’s instructions. If this is not done properly, not only can you void the manufacturer’s warranty, you can leave your home vulnerable to damage that will require frequent roof repair and possibly early replacement.
Poor Maintenance – When you invest in a new surface that is designed to protect your home, it is critical to maintain it properly. Low-hanging tree branches can scrape against asphalt shingles and remove protective mineral granules that block the sun’s harmful UV rays. These bald spots allow the shingles to become brittle, crack and leak. Leaving piles of leaves and other debris on the rooftop or in the gutters can hold water against the surface and create leaks and mold issues. Roof repair can fix minor issues, but if it gets out of hand, you may be looking at full replacement.
