Roof Repairs

A roof makes up around one-third of a building’s total exterior. Any damage can seriously compromise the integrity of your home. Roof repair is when you remove all the existing roof material down to the decking.

This is done to achieve two things:

• To find wet or water stained wood guarantees that the problem is corrected.
• To replace rotted or water damaged wood helps in the restoration of the roof.

If your roof is more than 20 years old and most of the shingles are damaged or badly worn, it's time to repair or maybe even replace it.

Common Roof Problems

Flawed Flashing - Usually the flashing is made of heavy rubber or metals to prevent leaks in the pipes and at walls. Since it acts as the first line of defense from outside leaks, it is mandatory that you take enough time to install the flashing properly.

Gutter Buildup - Places surrounded with gutter buildup on your roof are ideal for the growth of mold and mildew. Make sure to have gutter cleaning done at least once a year.

Shingle Damage - Shingles cover and protect the roof deck and keep the moisture away from it. Any damage to this protection can invite leaks and other related problems.

Damaged Soffits - Soffits are a good hideaway place for birds and other such creatures, squirrels in particular, to rest. Monitor soffits and do repairs whenever required to be sure that there are no enough spaces for birds, or other animals, to nestle in the cracks.

Moisture - Not only does moisture from roof produce bad odor, it also encourages the growth of mold and mildew which can later infest the whole home.
