The 10 Most Common Residential And Commercial Roof Repairs, And Their Origins

Always remember the value of quality sealants around flashings, skylights, chimneys, vents, and other roof protrusions. Without airtight sealants, water can seep through cracks. Incorrect sealant application or insufficient surface preparation may create future problems. When evaluating a roof’s condition, we analyze the sealants to determine if they need replacement. We also prep the surface area to ensure appropriate adhesion.

A roof is much more than the shingles or tiles lying on top of it. A roof incorporates several layers beneath the surface. Roof decking rests below the visible roofing material. Some type of water barrier, or waterproofing layer, provides protection. Many times, a synthetic underlayment provides additional moisture resistance and mold blocking. If any of these layers become compromised, they require repair or, in some cases, replacement by a qualified roofer.

Poor roof ventilation results from a variety of potential factors. Unfortunately, insufficient roof ventilation creates interior issues, including excess energy consumption and moisture intrusion, which may produce mold and mildew. A reputable roofing contractor will guarantee your roofing system remains watertight and airtight to ensure proper roof venting. They also will assess the existing roof venting to determine if changes are needed.

Naturally, you expect a roofing company to take care of every detail responsibly when installing a roof. However, many roofing installers lack the knowledge and experience to attach flashing correctly. Additionally, flashing is susceptible to corroding, rusting, and denting. Unfortunately, damaged flashing creates an avenue for moisture intrusion. Repairing flashing as soon as possible eliminates further harm to a building’s interior.

We live in a world where the do-it-yourselfer (DIYer) is celebrated for addressing a home improvement or repair project without needing a professional. Television programs glorify this self-starting approach. Unfortunately, roofing systems are increasingly complex. Many of the best roofers have years of classroom education, on-the-job training, and professional experience working with roof repairs. Trust them to know what to do over the DIY method.

Typically, a home or building owner becomes aware of an issue when they observe signs of a leaky roof. For example, they may spot fresh water spots on the ceiling. A leaky roof means moisture has found one or more points of entry through the roof. Often, it can be challenging to identify the origin of leaks. An experienced roofing professional possesses the tools and equipment, as well as knowledge to investigate and locate problem spots.

Water should never pool on a roof. Water collecting on a roof deteriorates the underlying roofing materials and weakens the structure beneath the roof surface. In fact, pooling  or standing water eventually will seep through the roof and cause substantial interior damage. A trained roofing contractor knows how to assess the situation and identify the root cause of the roofing problem. They also can offer solutions to eradicate it.

The adage, “You get what you pay for,” rings true with roof installations. Most cut-rate and fly-by-night roofers will over-promise and under-deliver. Unfortunately, you might not observe problems with your roof installation for several years. We fix issues caused by those “pros” who “cut corners.”

Shingles can become damaged in a myriad of ways. Aging. Deterioration. Lightning strike. Hail. Rain. Sun exposure, Debris accumulation. Algae formation. Often, shingles will go bald, shedding granules. In many cases, they blister from heat, split from temperature changes, shrink from weathering, lift from windy conditions, break from violent storms, or pit from hailstones. If you observe problem shingles, address the issue right away, before the problem mushrooms into additional issues.

A catastrophic storm blows through your area, throwing you into dealing with destruction to your home. Your roof sustains substantial damage. In the immediate aftermath, you are not sure where to turn. Should you contact your insurance company? Do you need to find a reputable roofing company? Who can assist you in your hour of greatest need? Storm damage restoration requires a steady hand from a knowledgeable, experienced roofing company.
